At the National … on Twitter (Tuesday)




By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

The Show of all Shows began with a group-breaker evening Tuesday night inside the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., and that’s just one example of how there’s even more action online than ever before for the National Sports Collectors Convention. 

Thanks to technology and group-breakers, you can buy new cards straight from the show floor. Thanks to Twitter, you can already go behind the scenes with insiders as they prepare their booths for the biggest show of the year, which opens Wednesday evening with a VIP reception.

Highlights from Tuesday (and before) included breakers breaking, collectors traveling and, it seems, many more readying themselves for the 36th-annual show event while tweeting with #NSCC15 and #NSCCshow. (Look for even more here on as the show unfolds in the coming days and be sure document your own journey if you’re there with those hashtags. You might see yourself right here, too.)

See plenty of the preparation and some of the breaker highlights … after the jump.




For even more on Twitter … 

Keep an eye on @beckettmedia and @beckett_grading on Twitter along with editors @chrisolds2009@stephen_laroche and @tradercracks as they explore the show beginning Tuesday night. Also look for even more on Beckett Media’s Facebook pagewhile Beckett Grading Services vintage grader Andy Broome will be keeping tabs on interesting cards found in BGS.
