A special set of trading cards has been created for the 2016 Industry Summit honoring six of the hobby’s leaders past and present.

Five cards were handed out during “Meet the Industry” sessions as attendees went to various spots throughout the Summit and learned from various businesses and services.

Once all five cards were collected, they could head to the registration desk and receive the final card in the set — Kit Young, the founder of the original hobby trade show 30 years ago.

Other industry pioneers are also included. Jim Beckett, founder of Beckett Publications, was on hand to sign some of his cards.

Mike Berkus, who founded the National Sports Collectors Convention, is honored on another card. Berkus passed away in December.

Sticking with the National, show manager John Broggi is also featured.

Rounding out the checklist are both of the 2016 Partners in Progress honorees Angelo Exarhakos, President of Universal Distribution and GTS Distribution Executive Vice President Lloyd Kee.
