One of the larger Midwestern sports card shows of the year won’t be taking place in 2020.
The annual Thanksgiving weekend event at Moeller High School in Cincinnati was cancelled Tuesday.
Promoters at CincyCardShows.com say the move is “in accordance with the CDC, state of Ohio and Hamilton County.” Gatherings are still being kept to a maximum of 50 people in that area.
The show had been scheduled for November 27,28 and 29.
They’re still hoping to hold their spring event in April.
Investor Dan Fleyshman along with DJ Skee and Steve Aoki have opened up a new sports card shop in Hollywood.
“Cards & Coffee” carries hot rookie cards, especially basketball, and also does live breaks.
Ben Lyons of KCAL-TV in Los Angeles stopped by to chat about the hobby:
Ever see a 1973 Topps baseball rack pack box? They’re not exactly common.
This one was apparently acquired by a kid around that time, but stuck away for decades.
The box has 24 packs, one of which has a Nolan Ryan showing. Another has Reggie Jackson and two feature Goose Gossage rookie cards on top.
You’ll need a big bankroll or some like-minded friends but he’s now put it on eBay.
Basketball legends Julius Erving and Bill Walton are doing a live Zoom event for 100 United Mileage Plus credit card holders.
For a very reasonable $75, card holders can take part in the program and will also get autographed photos of each along with a copy of “NBA 75: The Definitive History.”
Tickets go on sale Thursday.
