Massachusetts Show a Long Running Success

East coast collectors have seen card shows and shops come and go over the years.  One thing they can always count on, though, is the show in Mansfield.

Promoter Doug Keating started the show in the early 1990s and he’s still at it, with a room full of dealers showing up to sell old and new cards and other items.

He’s also brought it dozens of autograph guests over the years, including many of the biggest names in Boston sports.

It’s a rarity these days to see such a long-running show still thriving.  Keating tries to promote in as many places as he can to keep the crowds coming.

The Mansfield card show also drew the attention of The Boston Globe, which stopped in to find out out a little more about it and to take the pulse of a hobby that’s changed a lot since that very first event.  Read their story here.
