Hey everybody!!! I know I have been asking about which design you liked better for a QBC T-Shirt. Well I decided why not make both designs? I found a way to make/sell/ship them pretty cheaply. We at the QBC try to keep everything towards our motto of "For the Fans by the Fans". We want to do the best by you guys, especially after all the support over the years. I also wanted to make it easier for you fine folks to beak to order these so they get shipped right to your homes so you could wear them the day of qBC 2020 if you wish. We are trying to keep the prices reasonable, especially with the quality of shirts that we chose. I am a bit of a tee shirt expert and I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE soft quality tees. Allow me to introduce to you the new official store of the QBC- QBCMerchStand.com.
The Fan Fest run by fans for fans, about our favorite team from Flushing Queens,NY.
Great food and beverages!
Vendors with great baseball merchandise and memorabilia!
We were asked by folks in the past just to have General Admission Only tickets and we listened. We separated out the autograph tickets where you can buy singles, a combo pack, or a VIP pack.
Why is the admission price higher then in the past?
You have made the QBC so successful, we had to go to a bigger venue and as such, venue fees have gone up. We have done our best to keep prices as low as possible to ensure as many fans can participate.
What guests are we having?
1969 World Series Champion Jerry Koosman will be having his number 36 retired in Flushing in 2020. This will be Jerry's first time speaking in front of a live crowd since the announcement. Jerry will be doing an hour long panel with crowd Q and A.
Usually our guests sign for around an hour after their panels. However Jerry has expressed to us that he may not be able to sign day of the QBC. Because we wanted him here and we obviously don't want to him to overexert himself we agreed on an alternative. We will be offering for sale a package of a Limited Edition Dave Majo QBC 2020 exclusive print pre-signed by Jerry plus a photo op with your camera.
If Jerry feels up to it, he mght be able to sign later in the day, however we will not know that until the day of the QBC.
PLEASE NOTE - Those who have already purchased one of the Koosman Packages (either the pre-signed print or VIP package) will have priority access to purchase an additional autograph should they be available. In addition, package purchasers wil also receive a discount off the additional Jerry Koosman autograph.
We hope you understand why we have to offer the autographs like this with Jerry. We know it isn't ideal but we really wanted Jerry to be at the QBC this year and to be able to get you his autograph if you wanted it.
A fan favorite NY Met, Hojo was part of the 1986 World Series team, became part of the 30/30 club (30 Home Runs/30 Stolen Bases), the 1991 NL Home Run and RBI leader, and former Mets coach. HoJo will be doing an hour panel with crowd Q and A along with an autograph signing. We are very happy to have HoJo joining us in 2020. We have been trying to have him at the QBC for a few years now and timing just didn't work out. We know you guys have been asking for him and we have finally been able to pull it off.
One of only 5 pitchers with over 100 saves for the Mets, Billy Wagner was an integral part of the 2006 NL East Championship team, compiling 40 saves and finishing 6th in Cy Young balloting that year.
Billy spent 4 years in Flushing, amassing 101 saves, 2 All-Star appearances and collected his milestone 300th career save in 2006.
Billy is currently 6th all-time in Saves with 422 and in 2019 appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot for the 4th time collecting 16.7% of votes, his 2nd consecutive increase in voting percentage.
Billy will be doing an hour panel with audience Q&A followed by an autograph session.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LINEUP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE

The Queens Baseball Convention also known as the QBC is a fan fest run by the fans of our favorite baseball team from Flushing Queens. We have put this Fan Fest together as a mix of a Comic Con and a baseball card show.
We hold our "BIG" QBC in January before the start of Spring Training. As fans we were looking for an event that would help us get through the winter months and help us with the lack of Flushing Baseball.
