Weekend Card Show With The Dodgers

In the late 80's you could find a collectible card show in Southern California any weekend of the year. Now, you are lucky to find a show once every other month. I miss this part of the hobby. There is nothing like running into old friends and collectors to share stories and to complete that nearly impossible set. This weekend (in fact, starting today) is the Naxcom Sports Collectors Expo at Hollywood Park Casino. What makes this show special is that it celebrates the Dodgers 50th Anniversary by bringing with it 17 former Dodgers to sign autograph for collectors. Check out this roster of Dodgers: Kirk Gibson, Orel Hershiser, Bill Russell, Steve Garvey, Ron Cey, Davey Lopes, Rick Monday, Don Newcombe, Joe Ferguson, Dave Anderson, Mike Davis, Rick Dempsey, Mike Marshall, Franklin Stubbs, Steve Sax, Al Ferrera and "Sweet" Lou Johnson.
