Just a couple of weeks after the National, there’s another large card show in the New York/New Jersey area. The East Coast National show opened Thursday at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. It runs through Sunday.
Over 300 dealers are set up along with auction houses and the grading/authentication companies. Admission is $10.
Autograph guests include Pedro Martinez, Wade Boggs, John Smoltz, Bernie Williams, Earl Campbell, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Bernard King and about two dozen others. More info is available here.
The SGC Gold Club offers two levels of membership:
- Gold Club Select. For $125, members receive ten complimentary Express-level grading vouchers and two gifts.
- Gold Club Premium. For $350, members receive 30 free Express-level grades, a copy of coffee table style book The Photographic Baseball Cards of Goodwin & Company (1886-1890) and two other gifts.
Members of either group will also be offered access to discounted grading specials each month and access to company insights and news not available to the general public.
The new offers don’t mean you’ll have to join, however. Non-members can still submit items for grading and autograph authentication.
For more information on the program, you can call the company’s Florida office at (800) 742-9212.
