An all-new trading card show is hitting the scene, serving the community in and around Union County, New Jersey! Hosted by AnythingButCommons, the debut of the Union County Card Show took place in the Oasis Event Center at the Springfield Hilton Garden Inn on Saturday, March 26. VIP entry was only $5 at the door and granted access to the show room from 8am-3pm, while the even more affordable General Admission was $3 from 9:30am-3pm.
From the affordable admission to rock bottom pricing on supplies, AnythingButCommons made it clear that this show is all about collectors! Every attendee was also in the drawing for amazing door prizes announced all day long:
Jake & Jude, who run the Union County Card Show, have big plans for the rest of the year so be sure to stay up to date with announcements on their social media. But with a whopping 75 vendors at their debut show, I can’t wait to see what their subsequent events have in store! Nearly a dozen tables were specializing in Pokemon cards: raw, graded, sealed products, and the occasional odds & ends… which means the rest were sports cards, wrestling, signed memorabilia, Funko Pops, and more!
Just some of the vendors at the debut show included: Breakers Club, Sports Connection, NYC Heart of the Cards, DJS Sports Memorabilia, and Kanto Kollectors. Many were buying that day and even accepting trades, so it was common to see collectors walking around with a personal case of their prized possessions to try to trade in (or trade up)! And with a ton of variety available at the show, you could be walking away with sealed wax, booster boxes, hobby boxes, graded cards, or a hefty stack of $0.25 cards! But one way that the Union County Card Show made sure that you could leave with a hit or two was by offering “Pick Your Letter” mystery boxes:
“Pick Your Letter” mystery boxes were a guaranteed PSA 10 or BGS 9.5 slab (or even a bonus prize of sealed product) from a trading card category of your choice: NBA, NFL, MLB, or Pokemon – limited to 26 boxes per category. In them you could receive a collectible worth well above the $40 price tag and, more importantly, every prize is a minty winner! This was yet another way that AnythingButCommons showed love to their attendees and certainly not their last. If you missed out on the debut of the Union County Card Show, definitely keep your eyes peeled online for the next one!
