A week has gone by since the close of this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention and there’s plenty that could be said, that could be written, about what could be found under one roof during the hobby’s showcase event.
From “extra” DNA Relics found in the bottom of one collector’s Allen & Ginter box (a Texas lizard in the wrong place at the wrong time at the printing plant) to countless vintage gems, from vintage wax to priceless auction items, from kids sorting soccer cards with their grandmas to kids walking the show floor in movie-used Jack Parkman jerseys, there was plenty to see.
If you followed me on Twitter during the show, you’ve undoubtedly seen a few of these already. But with the deadline clock ticking and more to do for your next magazines, this chapter of the NSCC — all except for some video still to come — is closing with a massive 97-image gallery after the jump.
It’s just a small glimpse at much of what was seen at the show — check them out and let us know what you think. After all, a picture’s worth a thousand words — so there’s plenty that could be said.
