An all-new trading card show for Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley debuted on April 15, 2023 hosted by Sports Factory of the Lehigh Valley and Rookies and Rarities. Held in one of Sports Factory’s open turf areas, the show ran from 1-6pm and was complete with 25 vendor tables, a Kids Trade Night immediately following the show, and even a DonutNV food truck parked outside!
Some of the best local card vendors were at the show selling all kinds of trading cards, supplies, and other collectibles… Among them were fan favorites Huggy Bear, Dave Knows Cards, and Carter’s Cards. Not only were there raw cards for sale, but sealed product as well! We’re talking about countless packs, hobby boxes, blaster boxes, and tins from well-known manufacturers like Topps, Panini, Upper Deck, and others.
In addition to vintage & modern sports cards, feast your eyes on some non-sports like Star Wars, Game Of Thrones, Stranger Things, Disney 100, pop culture & entertainment autograph cards, and TCG like Pokemon, Magic The Gathering, and Yu-Gi-Oh. It was all there!
And with the heavy presence of autographed cards, collectors can rest assured that licensed products have certified on-card signatures, and can also have peace of mind from the legitimacy of authenticated & graded slabs from reputable grading companies like PSA, CGC/CSG, BGS, SGC, and GMA, which were all spotted at tables throughout the show… Not to mention the budget-friendly deals on all kinds of slabs for younger & newer collectors!
The Sports Factory Card Show was free to attend, with free cards for all kids to kickstart their collections. Chris Tripp of Sports Factory said that the goal is to make the Card Show a monthly event, giving enthusiasts in the Lehigh Valley area easier access to a wide variety of trading cards. What a way to support the hobby! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their next show!
