Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is coming back this August. The dates are August 16-18 at the Shreveport Convention Center. The event usually draws thousands of fans from around the country to meet and greet their favorite stars from movies, TV, and video games.

But this year, Geek'd Con is expanding to include a new event.

In 2024, Geek'd Con will host the first ever Shreveport Sports Card Expo. This will be 3 days filled with sports card dealers, sports memorabilia, and athletes present to sign autographs for fans. That will include NFL Hall of Fame member Bob Lilly.

Bob Lilly was the first ever NFL Draft Pick by the Dallas Cowboys. He won Super Bowl VI with Dallas, where he set a record (since broken) during the game with a 29-yard sack of Miami Dolphins QB Bob Griese.

Over his NFL career, Bob Lilly was named First Team All-Pro 7 times, made 11 Pro Bowls, was named to the 1960s All-Decade Team, 1970s All-Decade Team, 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, 100th Anniversary All-Time Team, and is in the Cowboys Ring of Honor. NFL Films even named Bob Lilly as the 26th greatest NFL player of all time.

Not to mention he was a Unanimous All-American while in college with TCU.

He has been inducted into both the Pro Football and College Football Hall of Fames.

Bob Lilly will be appearing on Friday and Saturday only this year at the Shreveport Sports Card Expo, inside of Geek'd Con.
