FORT COLLINS, Colo.- Rams fans will have the chance to purchase a copy of the historic Aggies to Rams book and have it signed by author John Hirn in the Lory Student Center CSU Bookstore.
The homecoming book signing will be between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturday.
This special event has been arranged to celebrate the homecoming weekend as it allows fans to get their books at the campus bookstore before the Rams kick off for their 4 p.m. game against the University of Utah.
There will also be historic game films shown at the bookstore, featuring the 1949 Raisin Bowl, the 1955 DU game and possibly some of the 1990 Freedom Bowl.
Fans that have already purchased their books can also bring them in to be signed, giving them a chance to talk about the long history of CSU football with Hirn and other fans. This is a great chance for anybody that has not picked up their books to get them before they run out. As of next week, there will be less than 1,000 books available.
With less than 90 days until Christmas the books will be moving out fast.
As a special bonus, the first 30 people that purchase two or more books on Saturday October 10th only, will receive a free "Vintage Colorado State" 2010 calendar that features the old-school artwork from game day programs of the 1910s to the 1960s. Only the first 30 people that buy multiple books will receive calendars. These collectables have a retail value of $18.95 at stores like Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble, and Borders Books.
Fans are encouraged to come out to the book signing to support CSU student-athletes as 80 percent of the net profits will be donated to the CSU Athletic General Scholarship Fund.
