It’s not often a sports card show gets moved because of weather, but the upcoming September Philly Show has been forced to hit the road. Due to recent flooding in and round the show’s usual venue in King of Prussia, PA, the three-day event will shift to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.
Normally held at the Valley Forge Casino Resort three times per year, the September show will set up shop in Hall D of the Expo Center, located at 100 Station Avenue in Oaks. The date hasn’t changed. The show is still set for September 21-23.
Show organizers say the casino and hotel weren’t impacted by the flooding that took place following heavy rain on August 13 but issues inside the convention center forced the move. The Expo Center is approximately six miles from the usual facility and used to host the Philly Show.
Admission prices have been cut in half to $4 or $9 for the entire weekend. Those who bought tickets in advance will be refunded the difference. Parking at the Expo Center is free.
The show’s hours are Friday from 2 PM – 9 PM; Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM and Sunday from 9 AM to 3 PM. About 75 dealers are expected.
Past and present members of the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled to sign autographs including Alshon Jeffery, Jay Ajayi, Corey Graham, Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, Keith Byars and others. Former NBA star Derrick Coleman and some former Phillies are also on the schedule. More info is available on the show’s website.
