Nuernberg Card Show – roundup

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

This past weekend we visited our Friend Rudi down in Nuernberg at the NUERNBERGER VERSICHERUNG ARENA  for a card show that he hosted. The 4 hour trip was well worth it and for the Hockey enthusiast this is the place to be for picking up the latest and the greatest hockey cards ranging from the newest rookies and DEL cards to high-end autograph and jersey cards. I was very impressed in the turn out, there were 20 dealers setup and in addition to single cards that were being sold, a few of the dealers also had hockey pucks, figurine’s, memorabilia and unopened boxes for sale.  There was a little bit of everything available to warm the heart of the sports collector. Here are a few pictures to give you more of an idea of what the show was all about, I’ll make sure to post the dates of the next show as soon as I receive them!

The new release calendar has just two new sets this week. 2011 Leaf Legends of Sport is an all-autograph multi-sport product featuring lots of big-time signatures.

Card Show Round Up

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

It’s been a little while since we last posted and I thought I would share a few photos from the last card show. We were lucky enough to have a visit from former NHL’r Nathan Robinson. He took a few photos with some of the people and signed a few cards, just what we needed to make the card show that much more enjoyable.

The Past Holds the Key to Housing the Modern Hit

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Ultra Pro’s Vintage card sleeves offer collectors the ideal level of protection for the modern memorabilia card. The sleeves were designed for oversized vintage cards, but work perfectly for 90% of today’s hits and thicker stocked cards.

VintageSLEEVES Trading Card Tips: Memorabilia Card SleevesWhen it comes to the preservation of card condition, one of the greatest tool at a collector’s disposal is the everyday sleeve. The top loader and magnet case are crucial when it comes to long term storage, but when ripping a box or on the run, the penny sleeve is the simplest and cheapest way to immediately preserve card condition.

Ideally, the goal is to only sleeve a card once, as “over-sleeving” can lead to needless corner and edge fatigue. This means it’s important to have the right sleeve for the right card on hand when ripping a pack, box or case.

Sleeving regular sized cards (20-50 point thickness) is easy, it’s finding the ideal sleeve for the modern memorabilia card that often presents a mystery……. that is until now – Hands down the best sleeves for relic cards are Ultra-Pro’s Vintage Card Sleeves, which are over-sized, thick and provide premium protection for 90% of cards larger than a standard card.

What separates Ultra Pro’s Vintage Sleeves from the no-name brand sleeves geared toward housing hits is that Ultra Pro’s are thick and were created to keep the most delicate of over-sized vintage cards in tip top shape. In fact, they work so well that many times I don’t even feel the need to use an additional top loader.

Ultra Pro Vintage Sleeves usually cost around $1.00 for a 50-pack, which makes it an extremely useful and cost effective way to preserve every thick card in your collection.
