Will there be other collectibles at this show aside from coins, currency, stamps and sports cards? Undoubtedly. In fact during this September show, we will be hosting the 2018 World Olympic Collectors’ Fair. If you have any interest in the Olympic games, make sure you stop by the 70 plus exhibitor tables on our bourse floor. We can’t wait to see what unique collectibles were brought here from around the world. Not only will you have the opportunity to see some Olympic game history, but you’ll also be able to line up for Olympian Autograph sessions in addition to meeting renown boxer and special guest, Earnie Shavers. The great Muhammed Ali once said that “Shavers hit me so hard it shook my kin folk in Africa.”
A: I can’t wait to see the 2018 World Olympic Collectors’ Fair. Not only am I a huge fan of the Olympic games and showcased sports, but I’m also fascinated by its rich history. From Olympia to soon-to-be Tokyo, I can’t wait to see some unique collectibles brought to the expo from around the world. Every nation that hosted the games adds their unique cultural touch to the memorabilia sold, and I am chomping at the bit to hear some tales and stories on why each collectible looks the way it does.
A: I was introduced to the collectibles industry early as a toddler. My father used to take me to open basketball workouts to meet and get autographs from famous basketball players. Over the years, my interest in sports rapidly grew and thus my ascension into collecting baseball and basketball cards.
In middle school, I began to understand the true values associated with collectibles as I bought, traded and sold my way into making a substantial amount of earnings. Oh first edition holographic cards… you’ve treated me so well back then!
A: If I had the opportunity, I would own any collectible that is one-of-a-kind. Due to there being no alternatives, these types of collectibles will always increase in value. Scarcity generally means increased competition to purchase the item. A worthy investment if you ask me!
