2023 National Sports Collectors Convention - Chicago

Postby vintagebrett » February 4th, 2023, 9:55 am

As I sit here and type it is -7 degrees outside with a feels like temperature of -25 degrees. Spring training is just around the corner which means the dog days of summer are lurking in the shadows. This summer the National Sports Collectors Convention returns to Chicago, IL (actually Rosemont) at the Donald Stephens Convention Center. I'm looking forward to the show and will be set up in booths 209/211. Right now I have a decent inventory of gloves and other items I'm excited to showcase and sell to eager buyers. As the show gets closer, I hope to add some more treasures to bring that will entice shoppers of all persuasions. Gloves in the pile for the show include some nice early turn of the century models and extend all the way to some more high end modern offerings - there are 2-3 models that are cataloged but I've never seen for sale before. In addition to my items, my friend Doug from Wisconsin will be there with his usual assortment of interesting pieces. Glovecrazy Rob will be attending as well and he promises to bring the heat with some desirable models. Although the show continues to grow (they've added a lot more space this year), most of it is baseball cards. However, there are still a few vintage oases with cool equipment and other memorabilia. The best part of the show is visiting with like minded collectors and spending time sharing stories. If you're planning on attending, let me know - it's always great to see old friends and meet new ones.
