The show-starved sports collectible market will have another large event later this month.
Promoter Kyle Robertson says he has already sold over 400 tables for the Dallas Card Show’s November 13-15 event at the Watters Creek Convention Center in Dallas. For what seems to be the first time since the pandemic, multiple autograph signers will be present as well.
“We are keeping all guests about two feet from the table where the autograph talent are signing,” Wilbanks told SC Daily. “Autograph guests are going to be asked to wear masks and gloves as well, so that when they get the item from the person, they aren’t directly touching the item. aAlso, there will be a handler that takes the item from the customer and hands it to the athlete. then someone else will hand it back.”
The Dallas show has had a couple of sizeable events since the summer months, but this will be the largest to date. The dearth of large shows in many areas of the country because of local and state restrictions has resulted in some collectors and dealers traveling from both coasts to attend.
The show will take place Friday, November 13 from 2 PM to 8 PM; Saturday from 9:30 to 6 and Sunday from 9:30-4. The convention center has a 40,000-square-foot event space to host the show with a hotel connected to the property.
