Default 2017 Ohio Sports Collector Show April 21-23, 2017

Who is going? I've lived 20-30 minutes from this show my whole life, and have never been (didn't know about it until late last year). I hear it's a terrific show for vintage.

I will be going on at least Saturday, and wouldn't mind meeting up with any other Net54 members going!

Roll Tribe!

I went last year and found it underwhelming. However, I drove 5 hours to get there. If I lived 20-30 min., it would be a no-brainer.

Thought about getting a few things graded by SGC, but their on-site grading prices are too much for the cards I have - doesn't make sense.

Is this schedule related, or experience related?

It's mostly because I'm busy the rest of the weekend and have vacation days to burn, but I do feel like I'd get first crack at stuff on Friday.

Should be fun even if I don't find much to buy.

I like the show - but I have found that most of the same dealers/cards show up a month later in Pitttsburgh. So, for me, it isn't with the two hour drive, tolls, gas, admission, etc. when I will go to the Robert Morris show next month.

Of course, I say that and I will be itching to go all next weekend...

Default Went last year

I grew up around here and went when I was younger. Somehow I found myself back in Cleveland on business for last year's show and couldn't pass it up. I thought there was good material all around, and of course plenty to satisfy a Cleveland Baseball collector like myself. Here's a few pickups from the show last year. I can't go this year, but will definitely attend again in the future!

Default Ohio Sports Collectors Convention - Strongsville 2017 - April 21-23

I want to give this thread a push, and offer a friendly reminder of the show this weekend. By most accounts I have read and heard, Fusco Auctions and team promoting the Ohio Sports Collectors Convention, has done well. We need more well run shows!! And thanks again to them for being a valued Net54baseball advertiser. It is appreciated very much. Good luck to everyone who attends. Hopefully we can get some reports back....

I've gone most years since the mid-90s and I've always thought it was a good show. You will find very little (if any) modern. Great show 50s-70s and even earlier.

I will be there at some point on Saturday with my brother and 10-year old son.
