The National Sports Collectors Convention is exploring other options for its 2022 event now that the I-X Center is shutting down, but a lot can change between now and then.
The NSCC could opt for moving the show out of Cleveland entirely, but the city owns the facility and will be exploring options in the weeks and months ahead since it’s coming off the tax rolls. There’s also another convention center in the city that’s interested in hosting the show. Here’s a story from Cleveland.com.
Beckett Media has partnered with Collectibles Insurance Services to offer insurance services for users of Beckett’s collecting software.
The deal offers insurance to dealers and collectors who have already plugged their cards, autographs and memorabilia items into Beckett’s database.
Beckett will assist customers in applying for quotes based on the value of the collection they have stored online. CIS agents will then finalize each collector’s policy.
A high-end copy of what might be the holy grail of modern soccer cards is on the auction block.
A 2004 Panini Sports Mega Cracks Lionel Messi rookie card graded PSA 10 could bring a six-figure price when the eBay auction closes later this week. The current high bid is over $60,000. It’s one of 20 graded at that level.
The card shows a youthful Messi as he began his climb up the professional ranks with Barcelona where he’d soon become one of the greatest players of all-time. He was just 17 at the time.
Also up for bid: a 2003 Panini Sports Mega Craques Cristiano Ronaldo rookie, also graded 10 by PSA. Both cards were part of products distributed in Europe at the time.
eBay Bucks earnings are 5% for some users through Wednesday.
A message will pop up here if you’re getting the deal.
What does an 87-year-old collector do if he needs money to buy more cards? He grabs a booth at a local farmer’s market and sells stuff every week.
