Flashback Product of the Week: 2006 Donruss/Playoff Hawaii Trade Conference Box

One of the coolest things about the Trade Conference are the promos, specifically the ones from Donruss/Playoff (Panini).  Their black boxes are always packed with a ton of exclusive stuff.  Some years there might be cards inside and other times you might find printing plates.  They can be pretty expensive, but thats because the Trade Conference is the only place they could be picked-up.  I opened a box from 2008 and pulled a bunch of one-of-one’s.  Trust me, these are a very fun product to rip.

2010 Las Vegas Sports Collectibles Industry Summit

Photobucket

On April 11-14, 2010 the sports collectibles industry will be having its trade show/conference that usually takes place in Hawaii, but instead this year it will be in Las Vegas.  I’ve never attended this conference, but would really like to someday.  You get the chance to meet industry leaders and listen in on discussions about The Hobby.  Of coarse, just like The National, one of the biggest draws to this are the promos that many of the guests receive.  In the past, one of the most popular promos are the Black Boxes provided by Donruss/Playoff (Panini).  I purchased a Black Box a few years ago and inside were seven 1/1 printing plates, and two of them were autographed.  Black Boxes aren’t the only promos flying around either.  There are a ton of autograph and memorabilia cards for collectors to snatch up.  I e-mailed Kevin Isaacson who is one of the event hosts to see if they could let me know what kind of promos they plan to have this year.

Attending this conference isn’t like going to The National, for one thing it costs a lot more.  The early bird special is only $299.  For more information you can check out their website here.  Who knows?  Maybe someday Sports Card Info will be a sponsor too.
