The annual Cubs Convention in Chicago featured game-used memorabilia as the big attraction for collectors. Some bid on boxes without even knowing what’s inside.
Like their Cardinal brethren, Cub fans love their mid-winter convention. A chance to meet players and managers, hear from some off-season acquisitions and snap up some of the club’s excess inventory.
The Cubs’ annual Locker Room sale includes uniforms, bats, lineup cards and just about anything else the team thinks collectors will buy—and they usually do buy most of it. It was a madhouse, according to this blogger.
