Pro Dreams – which features sports memorabilia, artwork and other collectible items – will celebrate the grand opening of its new location at 1745 U.S. 190 in Mandeville from 3-7 p.m. Saturday.

Former LSU baseball coach Paul Mainieri and former Saints kicker and Super Bowl champion Garrett Hartley will be on hand to sign autographs during the grand opening celebration.

Trey Ledbetter started Pro Dreams and its sister company, Southern Fundraising, in 2016. After initially placing a focus with on-location events, the Mandeville store is the company’s first foray into storefront sales.

Additionally, the company has hosted silent auctions for upwards of 150 events per year, including the Saints Hall of Fame and Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame.

Ledbetter describes the new store as “an immersive experience in sports memorabilia, pop culture and art. It will bring back childhood memories from sporting events and games,” he said.

The store features “some of the most unique items in sports memorabilia, and combinations of the past and present greats of the game,” Ledbetter said.

Pro Dreams is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and by appointment on Monday and Tuesday. Click here for more details.
