If you collect vintage sports cards, filling your want list at the National Sports Collectors Convention is usually faster than buying on eBay. Name a set and there are likely at least a few dealers who have those cards in their inventory.
Collectors from across the country are spending plenty of money this week. Some are filling sets. Others are buying in hopes of making a profit down the road. There are also dealers from smaller metropolitan areas who buy in hopes of re-selling to local collectors starved for good material.
Some of the exhibitors in Chicago are full-time; others work shows whenever their regular jobs allow.
We caught up with Jeff Foy of Card Country to talk about selling at the National.
