Cardboard Connection Radio Celebrates Collectors in Cleveland at 2014

Popular Trading Card Radio Show to broadcast live from the show floor of the largest trading card and collectibles event of the year. Special events planned during 5-day extravaganza.

The 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention is shaping up to be one of the best in its storied history. Cardboard Connection Radio, the longest-running, weekly radio show dedicated to the hobby, will broadcast live throughout the 5-day event at Cleveland’s International Exposition (I-X) Center. Friends of the show and special guests will talk trading cards with hosts Doug Cataldo, Rob Bertrand, Russ Cohen and David Wright as events unfold.

VIP and Super VIP ticket holders will also receive an added bonus. In cooperation with SA-GE Collectibles, collectors can chase a 10-card set of football cards (images attached). Each VIP or Super VIP bag will include one of the nine-card set. The 10th card, a checklist, may be picked up at the Cardboard Connection Radio booth (M-1) by showing your SA-GE/Cardboard Connection Radio trading card that is found in the VIP and Super VIP bags -- while supplies last. The set contains 7 rookies and 2 second-year players.
