A Recap of the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention

Although we've been back from the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention for nearly a week and a half, we are still in the process of getting all of our purchases online and available to buy!  While DeansCards.com did not set up a booth at this years convention in Chicago, we did manage to buy numerous cards and sets to add to our online inventory.  

Dean and Rich Mueller
DeansCards.com working hard to fill out our 1950’s Complete Set’s inventory. At the convention alone we purchased a 1953 Topps BaseballExcellent Condition Set, a 1956 Topps Baseball Excellent Condition Set, a 1957Topps Baseball Very Good/Excellent Condition Set, a 1955 Red Man Baseball ExcellentComplete Set w/ Tabs, and even a couple other sets which have already sold.

Another great part of the National is that it allows you to see other people who contribute to the hobby.  While looking through a dealer’s collection of 1950’s cards, we ran into a friend and colleague, Rich Mueller (pictured alongside Dean).  Rich is the Managing Editor for Sports Collectors Daily, a website that caters to sports collectors all over the country. He does a great job updating his website daily to keep everyone in the industry abreast of current and original sports collecting news stories.
