O.J. Simpson to attend L.A. convention

NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Sept. 29 (UPI) -- O.J. Simpson plans to mark the 10th anniversary of his acquittal on double murder charges by signing autographs at a Los Angeles area comic convention.

Simpson will sign autographs and photos starting at $95 a pop during the NecroComicon Friday through Sunday in the Los Angeles suburb of Northridge, Calif.

Monday is the 10th anniversary of Simpson's 1995 acquittal in the stabbing deaths of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

The NecroComicon will mark Simpson's first Los Angeles public appearance since the slayings, convention officials said in a news release.

Co-promoter Thomas Riccio said Simpson was invited to the event because he is "arguably the best football player who ever lived. He's a Heisman Trophy Winner, a former All American, an NFL M.V.P., and a Pro-Football Hall Of Famer."

He said thousands of sports memorabilia collectors have been waiting more than a decade for a chance to get Simpson's autograph.
