The National Sports Collectors Convention 2021...


I had a spectacular time at this years convention!  The previous 2 times attending (2017 and 2019) I only spent a day each time, but this year I spent 2 wonderful days sorting through $1 and dime boxes,  along with other miscellaneous boxes that caught my eye.   Also seeing all the cards in cases that are well out of my means, but still fun to look at, and you never know, one day it could happen.  The best part was meeting and chatting with the dealers and other hobbyists.  From here on out when I attend, I plan on minimum 2 days, possibly 3.  I have already started by savings plan.

Finally got to meet ....

  1. I was there Friday and Saturday. My 1st time. It was pretty awesome.

  2. Glad to hear that you had fun too. I've yet to see anyone who went say that they didn't have a good time. Oh, and I LOVE your big boy cards, especially the Aaron!

    1. My big boy cards were nothing compared to the $$$$$$$ others were spending. To each his own budget! Thanks for reading.
