No matter how his teammates or some fans feel about Johnny Manziel, he's still a star to Texas A&M faithful.

And wherever Johnny Football goes, College Station crowds are sure follow, the Bryan Eagle reported.

Representatives for Aggieland Outfitters, a store specializing in Texas A&M merchandise, say tickets for an autograph-signing event Sunday — Manziel's first public signing event since being drafted by the Browns last year — has sold out not once but twice.

The event's first 250 tickets, ranging from $125 to $155, sold out in one day last week and another 100-ticket allotment sold out quickly Monday.

"We knew there would be a lot of excited Aggies, and their response has been pretty overwhelming," store spokesman Dallas Shipp said. "It's not every day you get to meet a Heisman Trophy winner and someone who in his case has transformed into not just a sports celebrity, but an international celebrity."

Sunday's three-hour event, less than three miles from Kyle Field, where Manziel starred for the Aggies, will allow ticket-holders to get mini-helmets, footballs and some personal items signed on a first-come, first-served basis.

By all indications, that means the lines will form extremely early.
