Keeping a sports card show alive isn’t easy–but they’ve found a workable formula in one Midwestern city.
You won’t find $150 autograph guests–just one former Cardinal. There is noadmission fee. Your wife or girlfriend will have plenty of other options while you’re taking your time going through those stacks of cards.
It sounds like a winner.
For 20 years, a shopping mall in western Illinois has hosted one card show per year and it’s returning again later this month, drawing dealers and collectors from a three-state region.
