national sports collectors convention 2016
We couldn’t ask for a better opportunity than this to get you to learn about the newest and most exciting collectibles and collectible ideas.
That being said, let me say right off the bat that I have very little to do with this convention. I’m not a collector, nor am I interested in collecting. I’m just a regular guy who’s just recently decided to get into collecting sports cards. So yeah, I’m not on the collecting committee.
National sports card collecting is a little different than most traditional collectibg, as its most popular in America, where its an industry that has evolved over the last few decades. The idea of collecting sports cards is a lot younger, and that’s because cards have been a very fickle item over the years. In the 1980s, the average collector bought 10 to 30 cards of a particular player, then over in the 1990s the average got up to 100.
Back in the day, collecting sports cards was about making your living. Now, its about how much your wallet is stuffed with cards. The average sports card collector is only slightly older than me, so they may not be as young as I am. But they are still getting older and buying more cards at a faster rate.
With that in mind, and that I find it hard to believe anyone would own more than one or two sets of a particular player’s cards, it makes perfect sense to hold any national sports card convention. Because the better a set of cards, the more attention you are receiving from the media and fans. The better the card set, the more attention the card collector is getting. And when you add it all up, you get a very powerful thing.
For a card collecting convention to be viable and successful, it has to be very much about the money. Yes, I know the people who buy the cards are going to be looking for a good deal, but the convention can get the money back more quickly if you have something to prove.
The National Sports Collectors Convention is one way to do this. Last year at this event, I was able to walk away with a whole lot of money. This year I did it in the same place, but with just a little less money. There are many reasons why the number of cards sold is increasing, but the most important is the attention that collectors are getting from the press. The more attention they get, the more they are likely to take advantage of the sale.
The “big” problem is that it’s just so easy to get a few cards from these big dealers. They can’t just get a few cards to sell through the dealer who owns them. That’s a problem that many retailers, even some large numbers of buyers, can’t fix. The problem is that the dealers are actually the ones who sell the cards to you.
The best way to get the attention of the buyers is to show them the cards you have and offer the cards for sale. That will get the buyers interested and more likely to take advantage of a sale. The problem is that the dealers who own the cards are not always the ones selling them. Many dealers may not even want to sell cards to a buyer. The problem is that there are usually a lot of dealers who have no interest in buying cards from someone they know.
This is sort of like any convention, except that it’s national and not just for a specific card. You’re going to have a lot of dealers doing business at one convention, so it’s likely that you will see most of your cards at one of the dealers. A lot of them in fact.
