One thing that collectors may not see in their day-to-day hobby habits is the growing international interest in sports cards and other collectibles made here in America.
But it’s all growing and the global game of sports cards — as well as global interest in gaming — is as strong as ever and that means that members of the Blowout Cards team will be traveling the globe this week.
Where to? Shanghai, China, for the Shanghai Ruika Carnival.
Shanghai Ruika, one of the largest gaming and sports card distributors in China, is putting on the two-day show this week. Blowout will be there to explore the international interests of collectors — both what we see here that’s hot there and what’s unique to China or other countries that might not be seen here — as well as visit with collectors of sports cards and memorabilia. (If you didn’t know, Blowout presently ships to more than 20 countries — get the basics here.)
We’ll add more images and interesting nuggets right here from the show.
