The Monthly Card Show is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 6 PM to Midnight Eastern time. Buyers can sign up to purchase cards from a variety of sellers who will have their own online “booths” with cards for sale in a live stream.
Similar events were held during the pandemic.
Buyers can sign up for a Tradesafe account and have purchases from multiple vendors shipped in the same box. A $25 fee covers all shipping through Tradesafe. Those who want to try selling or trading some of their better cards can offer them to dealers as well.
Dealer booths are $200.
More info is available on the event website.
