If you’re a dealer or collector, especially if you call the Midwest home, you’ve probably heard of the Gibraltar Trade Center card shows. A hobby fixture for more than 20 years, the monthly show near Detroit was one of the longest-running events in the hobby.
Dealers and collectors came from several states and the shows featured regular autograph guests.
However, the building itself closed last year, though, and promoters had to scramble to find a new home for the show. Dealers Bruce Lukosavich and Steve Mioczynski spearheaded the process, eventually opting for the smaller Taylor, MI Town Trade Center and held their first show there last fall. The new venue is only about four miles from the Gibraltar facility.
Word spread quickly and 40 dealers filled more than 100 tables for the debut show.
Their next one is scheduled for February 6-8. The response, so far has been positive according to this story in the News-Herald.
