A History of a Beloved Hobby - Collecting Trading Cards

Ever wondered about the long history of the trading card? It's come a long way since its inception. Once packed out as a perk or advertisement to help sell tobacco, it's now a multi-million dollar business that involves collectors of all ages.

Enjoy a visual history of the development of trading cards with this hour-long presentation from long-time collector, writer, and Cardboard Connection Radio Show Host Doug Cataldo. From vintage to video cards, you'll see these collectibles in a new light. Learn about grading, authenticity, and the manufacturers that make the cards. Participate in a Q & A session at the end of the presentation. We'll even give some trading cards away before it's over!
