At the 2010 National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore, Topps will be hosting a panel discussion and meet and greet for collectors. The purpose of the forum is to make ourselves more accessible to collectors and give us the chance to get to know each other better. Various topics related to the hobby will be discussed, and audience participation will be encouraged. We would like to hear your ideas about how we can improve the hobby. Since we don’t often get the chance to interact face to face with end collectors, this forum will be geared toward and limited to the everyday collector (no store owners, no distributors, etc). The event will take place on Thursday, August 4th from 5-7 pm at the Baltimore Convention Center, Room 303. Beer, wine, food, and drinks will be served. To participate, stop by the Topps booth at the convention any time after the show opens to pick up a ticket. Space is limited, so tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you at The National.
