Scenes from the Show … The National Day 2 (ongoing gallery)

Day 1 of this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention is over inside the Donald  E. Stephens Convention Center and the preview night (gallery) has come and gone, too.

Now it’s time for Day 2 with a larger slate of signers and plenty of action. You’ll never know what big items you’ll see (How’s that box up top look?), and there will be items you’d never imagine finding because, well, you probably didn’t know they existed.

Keep reading for more and to see a gallery that will grow throughout the day as the doors open shortly.

Via @nsccshow … The calm before the day 2 storm which brings 12 Baseball HOF’ers to #NSCC17.

Booth No. 854, the home of should be one of your first stops for giveaways each day, though there will be plenty more to see on the show floor.

    I really appreciate all of the pictures. I wish I could be there, but couldn’t make it and seeing the variety of pictures is great. Seeing some of the amazing giveaways is definitely making me miss it even more though.

  11. Tyler Sullivan July 27, 2017 / 3:43 pm

    Who wants to go half on the 86/87 Fleer box? I get the Jordan on top pack, tho. It’s a finder’s fee.


  12. Daniel Collins July 27, 2017 / 4:56 pm

    Can’t wait for Cleveland I’ll be at the blowout booth everyday lol but until then I’m gonna live threw the blog. Wish that box of 86 was being busted by me but o well 75grand is a bit to much for my blood. Thanks for the chance to win something as always

    The Blowout Cards booth looks nothing short of amazing. The number one item on my hobby bucket list is to attend the National while in Chicago. That way, I might get to visit Wrigley Field, which is on my baseball bucket list. One of these days…
