Lehigh Valley Toys, Comics & Cards Show

Lehigh Valley’s biggest toy, comic, and card show returned to the Charles Chrin Community Center (Palmer, PA) on May 13, 2023. For nearly two decades, the Lehigh Valley Toys, Comics & Cards Show has gathered the best collectibles under one roof and this Spring event was no different! With nearly 300 vendor tables, the show ran from 10am-2pm for only $5 at the door with a $10 early bird entry at 8am.

Vendors like Nerdvana, King & Queens Treasure Chest, Retro Ed Games, Death By Collectibles, Undisputed Comics Kings, Timmy’s Wall, 3AM Cards & Collectibles, and many others brought their best wares. We’re talking about loose & sealed Transformers from all generations, Matchbox & Hot Wheels cars, PEZ Dispensers, Squishmallows, Marvel Legends & McFarlane figures… Not to mention all the vintage & modern comic books ranging from raw to graded, you name it!

The Community Center was the perfect venue to host the Lehigh Valley Show. On top of the gym & surrounding hallways that housed the plethora of collectibles, a side room was reserved for some of the event’s special guests including voice actor Tony Daniels, Red Ranger Jason Faunt, WWE star Manu (Afa Anoa’i), stuntman Brett Azar, and NY Giants wide receiver Stephen Baker. Fans lined up for photo ops & autographs (fees may vary), or simply just to say hi to their childhood heroes!

Guest artists Chris Ring and Jeff Brennan were also in attendance, offering original art, prints, and other items ready to be taken home.

It’s a show you don’t want to miss! All the popular brands from the past & present could be found: Star Wars, Disney, WWE, Masters of the Universe, LEGO, Barbie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nerf, GI Joe, Funko, trading cards including sports, entertainment, and TCG (Pokemon, Magic The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball), and the list goes on & on…

Even collectibles you typically wouldn’t find at other comic & toy shows: vintage trains & cars, vinyl records, VHS tapes, out of print books & magazines, Burger King & Happy Meal toys, and a nice selection of video games, consoles, and controllers, too! But there were still plenty of conventional experiences… like running into cosplayers! Whether it’s a fan or professional cosplaying groups, keep your eyes peeled for some amazing costumes:

Among the pros were the 501st Legion (above) and the Lehigh Valley Power Rangers. You never know who or what you’ll find here, so definitely stay tuned for the next Lehigh Valley Toys, Comics & Cards Show and dress (or not) for the occasion!
