For a third year in a row, collectors will have the opportunity to pickup one of these National exclusive OYO minifigures.  As you can see, this year’s minifigures will have a hockey theme.  You can find these at booth #616P in the corporate area.  Only 100 minifigures will be given out each day of the show – 60 kids and 40 adults.  First come first serve!

If you’ve got kids, be sure to ask them about their daily building sessions.  These run from Thursday to Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Each session runs for 45 minutes.  OYO supplies you with all of the building kits.  Only ten spots available per session.

UPDATE

CollectorCrate has announced it’s March lineup of exclusive sketch print cards.  Depending on which sport you decide to purchase, you will receive a sketch print card of Tom Brady, Andrew Wiggins, or Ted Williams.  All were drawn by Emily Tester.  Good luck with your box breaks!!!

Manning, Jeter, & King James Highlight CollectorCrate’s First Exclusive

UPDATE

CollectorCrate is one of the more interesting things to hit the hobby recently.  For a monthly fee CollectorCrate will send you a box packed with sports stuff each month.  I was happy to receive and open the first round of boxes to go out.

By the looks of it, CollectorCrate is preparing to include it’s very first exclusive item within their boxes.  Artist Brad Utterstrom drew three different sketches – LeBron James, Derek Jeter, and Peyton Manning.  Each box will include a sketch print card of one of these players.  Utterstrom has worked with various card manufacturers in the past such as Topps, Leaf, and Cryptozoic.

Exclusive items should really help bring in more subscribers.  Now let’s see some exclusive bobbleheads, Funko Pop! figures, Lil’ Teammates, and OYOs.  I also think they should send out a large CollectorCrate to one lucky subscriber per month.  One that’s filled with sealed boxes and high-end stuff.

Exclusive OYO Minifigures For The 35th National

We’re exactly one week away from the opening of the 35th National Sports Collectors Convention, and the promos are still pouring out.

My top three favorite innovations the hobby has seen in recent years include Topps BUNT, Sports Card Album, and OYO Sportstoys.  For a second straight year, OYO Sportstoys will have specially made minifigures for National attendees.  This year there will be two different minifigures to chase.

Never Enough Cards/Sports Evolution Marketing booth #1132 will be handling this promotion.  Each day of the show they will hand out 125 minifigures to the first 75 kids and 50 adults.  OYO has said that the National football minifigures are limited to 200 and the baseball to 400.

Between Thursday and Sunday of the National from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. OYO will have 45 minute building sessions.  Fans can build a field set or Zamboni.  Ten spots will be open per session.  OYO will provide all of the building kits and there will be tons of giveaways including OYO minifigures.  Parents of interested children may register their child, ages 6 and up in advance by sending an email to OYONationalPromo@aol.com to reserve a spot.  Parents should send an email including the child’s name, day and time they would like to participate, and a contact phone number.  You can also reserve a spot by stopping by the booth.

Never Enough Cards/Sports Evolution Marketing will also have brick building displays they’ve created for the show too.

On a side note, it looks like OYO is also starting to make minifigures for Little League now.

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.
