The history of the card show & of me..............

Like a lot of people I started collecting sports memorabilia/cards as a kid going on to sell some just to buy more.  I've run card shows at several different locations in the past, mainly at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield.  I started this card show when I was 18 years old on Presidents Day in 1991.   It was certainly a different hobby, a different world and a different me.   The card show started out small both in size (about 38 vendor tables) & frequency (about 7 a year)  gradually increasing in size over the years with 17 shows a year of at least 85 vendor tables.  In 1999, I established the show's web page.   In 2003, we started having autograph guests on a regular basis, and now have nearly 70 autograph guests a year.  During the pandemic we expanded flying (or driving) to a lot of private signings.  In 2021 after 15 months of no card shows due to the pandemic, we've moved the show to the Holiday Inn in Dedham.  In December of 2021, we'll starting up a 2nd show in Peabody.  Married since 2003 with 2 kids, Iíve met a lot of nice collectors as well as a lot of nice autograph guests over the years, made some good friends and it's so nice to have a job I enjoy & have a passion for.   Special thanks to Jack Melchert (the autograph ticket guy), Ernie Rotman at the admissions table and  Chris & Bev Walz for their expertise in handling the autograph guests.
