One of the top things to do while attending the National Sports Collectors Convention is bust boxes.  There are always plenty of dealers ready to provide you with your box breaking fix.  Among the dealers you’ll find is Steel City Collectibles out of McKeesport, PA.  And guess what?  They have a promo for this year’s National.  While supplies last, anyone who purchases a box from the Steel City Collectibles booth will receive a Roberto Clemente Beckett Sports Card Monthly cover card.  This card looks just like the cover to an issue of BSCM, and is a National exclusive.  Limited quantities will be available.

Knobs and barrels are probably the two most interesting parts of a baseball bat.  This Clemente knob is just flat out gorgeous, and can be found in “Heroes & Prospects”.

More Photos From The ’09 Little League World Series

This morning I headed up to the Little League World Series in Williamsport.  This year I had a lot more fun because I took part in many of the promotional campaigns some of the major sponsors were doing.  Aside from baseball and football cards, I also collect pins.  Pin trading is HUGE at the Little League World Series.  Obtaining some of the pins from the sponsors reminded me of being at The National, because you need to do certain things to get a pin.  I had a really good time and if you’re a baseball fan you should go.  I even found a few baseball cards 🙂  When I was there, Mexico and Canada were playing.  Click on each photo to enlarge.
