ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Tuesday, March 1, 2016) The Atlantic City Convention Center will welcome more than 45,000 sports fans and memorabilia collectors for the 37th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention (NSCC), which will be held August 3-7, 2016.

The National Sports Collectors Convention is an annual gathering of collectors, dealers and many other groups interested in collecting trading cards, autographs, authentication, vintage game–used equipment and other sports and entertainment related memorabilia. The National has grown to be a mega-event, which can be housed in only a few locations in the country, but it still attracts all aspects of the multi-billion dollar collectibles industry. With support from the major card manufacturers, card grading services, and auction houses as well as from the licensees of these groups, the National is the premier collectibles event to attend each summer.

“We are extremely excited the 37th National Sports Collectors Convention is returning to Atlantic City,” said John Broggi, NSCC Executive Director. “The collector base in the area is one of the strongest in the nation and Atlantic City has really stepped up to support and promote our event. We are looking forward to a great 37th National.”

Show hours are scheduled for Wednesday, 4 to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission and VIP Admission tickets are now on sale at and will be available for purchase on-site throughout the show.
