Debuting their very first Morris County Card Show, Jersey Club Sports took over the Whippany American Legion building on June 19 with well-known vendors like Pokemon Puller, Gotham Card Breaks, and New Jersey Collector Fest.
From 11am-4pm (for $8, or $15 for 10am Early Bird entry) fans were able to browse the dozens of vendors on the show floor featuring sports memorabilia, signed photos, comic books, and of course tons & tons of trading cards! While majority of the products for sale seemed to be Pokemon & sports-based, there was still a decent representation of Magic The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, and pop culture cards as well.
On top of all the deals and hard-to-find cards, attendees were also making trades with vendors and fellow collectors. It wasn’t uncommon to see weather-resistant card protector cases to transport slabbed/graded cards and to store purchases from the show. And with trading card grading submissions still stunted, card shows like this are still the best & fastest way to get already-graded collectibles.
A popular booth at the show for fans of graded cards was Slab Shelf (above) who offers display solutions for all kinds of slabbed cards (which could be found for purchase at the show from vendor to vendor), including PSA, CGC, BGS, SGC, and more! And with additional accessories being sold all around the show, like various top loaders & sleeves, you just know that keeping your collection protected is in everyone’s best interest.
There was also a rare appearance by Topps artist Efdot (below) who brought an amazing collection of his art and was signing a number of cards he’s done throughout his career:
Overall the Morris County Card Show was a great event filled with an amazing selection of trading cards and assorted collectibles. And even if you didn’t win the hourly raffle included with admission, you still had the potential to walk away with something incredible for your collection, whether it’s a hobby box, a set of hit cards, or a vintage grail or two.
