It’s not just a sports card show, but with hundreds of dealers in the building, you’ll definitely find them there.
The long-running Long Beach Expo returns this weekend to the city’s convention center, bringing over 500 of the world’s top dealers in sports, coins, currency and stamps to the west coast for a three-day event.
Odis McKinney, a member of the Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XV and XVIII championship teams, will be at the expo Autograph Pavilion Saturday, Sept. 7 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. for a fan meet-and-greet autograph session.
PSA will offer on-site grading of cards and autographs, including a show special on football authentication fees. Memory Lane Inc. will have “Meet the Expert” sports sessions (booth #1332) and there will be sports-related prize drawings at the show as well.
In addition to knocking some cards off a want list or dropping things off for auction or grading, collectors will also have a chance to expand their collecting horizons by getting a look at a $10 million private collection of ancient coins and visiting the U.S. Mint, which will have some of its latest coin-related items for sale.
Show hours are 10 AM- 7 PM Thursday; 10 AM- 7 PM Friday and 10 AM-5 PM Saturday.
The Long Beach Convention Center is located at 100 South Pine Avenue in Long Beach.
