Any hardcore hobbyist doesn’t have to be reminded that the 38th annual National Sports Collectors Convention is taking place in Chicago next week from July 26 to 30.
One of these days I’m hoping to attend, but to those lucky enough to go this year, there will be plenty to do and see including the Ripping Wax Case Breaking pavilion, plenty of exhibitors on hand and a Topps VIP party (for the VIP ticket holders). The full schedule is right here.
But what I’d be most excited about is the autograph sessions by some pretty big names this year.
You can see the updated list here, but see below for some of the names expected to attend.
