The largest, best, and longest running hockey card and memorabilia expo takes place this weekend, May 4 to 6 2007, at the Toronto International Centre. The 32nd Toronto Sport Card and Memorabilia Expo will deliver over 900 tables of rare cards and nonsport items from the world of hockey and other sports.
The show boasts a heavy line up of autograph guests like Paul Coffey
, just to name one. The Upper Deck Company and In The Game
, the two leading hockey card manufacturers, will be offering spectacular cards exclusive to the show through their wrapper redemption programs. Many of these cards are rare and highly sought after by collectors. In fact, some cards have print runs of 10 and sometimes just 1 card.
There is more of an emphasis on hockey at this show. With the excitement surrounding the newest NHL stars like Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, and Jordan Staal, everyone wants cards and memorabilia featuring these players. This the only collectibles show in the world of this size where you can find so many collectables at once featuring those young stars.
I recently moved to the Toronto area a couple years ago for a career change and was astonished at what I saw at the first show I ever attened. If you have never been to one of the Toronto Sports Card Expos I assure you this would be the only show you attend if you could only attend one out of the many out there.
