Default National Sports Collectors Convention planned for next six years

National Sports Collectors Convention planned for next six years, headed back to Atlantic City



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
Sports collectors always want to know where the National Sports Collectors Convention is headed next.
Officials at the NSCC have the location set for the next six years, NSCC director Mike Berkus told Beckett Media.
Chicago will be a hub for the show, going there every other year. But in 2016, the NSCC is returning to an old place after a 13-year absence – Atlantic City.

Here is the list of sites:
2014: Cleveland
2015: Chicago
2016: Atlantic City
2017: Chicago
2018: Cleveland
2019: Chicago
Berkus and his group have tried to secure locations across the country, including the west coast. However, there are many issues as to why certain convention centers have not taken on the NSCC. Some facilities don’t book many years in advance and some have certain requirements for room capacity when the convention center is owned by the city – and many are.
The NSCC board gives dealers a list of potential sites and the dealers are the ones that vote for the convention site every year.

No Baltimore

Guess I'll be making a trip to AC in 2016. (Hopefully I don't blow all my spending money at the casinos)

Cool! I can stay at my Mom's house and just drive down the shore everyday. I really enjoyed it when it was here in Baltimore as it was only an hour drive for me.

Disappointed it's not coming back to Baltimore anytime soon...said crowds were biggest in several years when it was at Baltimore last year.

I heard dealers were please last year with attendance and sales. I don't understand why the National has to plan out the next 6 years. That is the problem with the show not being out west or back in Baltimore. Last years show was booked for Cleveland and Baltimore wouldn't book the show out a few more years after ones that were already planned. Cleveland allowed the NSCC to cancel that show in exchange for booking more going forward. Very few convention centers will book out that far, so the show doesn't move around much. It's a shame.

Really? I heard most dealers were pretty pleased with the Baltimore crowds and that as of Saturday, attendance was actually tracking better than the past year.

Glad that I will have to continue to wait for the National to come out West for at least another 7 years...

I enjoyed the fact that the Baltimore Show was the closest to me, but I thought the Chicago shows are layed out much better when it comes to the room and dealers.

The only thing that will be missing from Atlantic City is a sports team to go see a game during the show.

COME TO THE WESTERN PART OF THE U.S. PLEASE!!!!! I've never been able to go to the national because it's always on the eastern part of the united states. Heck try it in Denver! I would drive up to that if it was that close...

They need to do a pre-game show in the south before the big one

East Coast Bias reigns. All the major team sports drafts, The NFL Combine, and Nationals. Great stuff.
