Well it looks like dealers really enjoy Chicago as the place to hold the National Sports Collectors Convention.  Here is a list of where the NSCC will be held  from 2014 thru 2019.

  • 2014 – Cleveland
  • 2015 – Chicago
  • 2016 – Atlantic City
  • 2017 – Chicago
  • 2018 – Cleveland
  • 2019 – Chicago

I know many collectors would like to see it go back to the west coast, but apparently there are a lot of issues when it comes to booking in advance and capacity requirements.  What was so wrong with Baltimore?  I really enjoyed it there.

Philadelphia Sports Card & Memorabilia Show 2009 Dates

This evening I heard back from Paul Kutch, of Hunt Auctions, who just purchased the Philadelphia Sports Card & Memorabilia Show this year.  Here are the dates for the two 2009 shows:

March 13-15, 2009

Sept. 25-27, 2009

They still don’t know who will be signing autographs yet at either show.
