2020 National Sports Collectors Convention NSCC Guide
The 2020 National Sports Collectors Convention Guide provides a snapshot of the annual NSCC collecting mega-event. Taking place in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the 41st edition of The National Sports Collectors Convention is once again the biggest card show in all the land. AC last hosted the National in 2016.
Not only can collectors knock out many cards from their "to-do" lists at The National, but there are also exclusive cards courtesy of the companies. Of course, the cards are just one part of the extravaganza. As usual, TriStar hosts the Autograph Pavilion featuring a variety of sports and entertainment stars signing autographs and taking pictures with fans (for a price).
And many collectors love the chance to catch up with online friends IRL.
