The National will support MMIA’s campaign to raise funds through its Signatures For Soldiers campaign to assist disabled military veterans and disabled children of active duty military personnel. The event will provide on-site exhibitor space and conduct an on-line auction through partner Pristine Auction, with 100 percent of the auction bids benefiting MMIA.

“We are incredibly grateful to the National Sports Collectors Convention for conducting an on-line auction … benefiting MMIA/Signatures For Soldiers,” said Tim Virgilio, Military Missions In Action advisory board Member and Signatures For Soldiers founder.

The National, the nation’s largest sports collectors event, will return to the Atlantic City Convention Center for the first time since 2016 with 400,000-plus square feet for more than 650 dealers and exhibitors from around the country. The Tristar Autograph Pavilion will feature 125-plus legendary athletes and entertainers signing and posing for photos with sports fans and collectors.

“We look forward to continuing Tristar’s ongoing relationship with Signatures for Soldiers and Tim’s great efforts to support military veterans,” said Jeffrey Rosenberg, CEO of Tristar Productions. “Our Tristar Autograph Pavilion team looks forward to joining the National in supporting the military veteran and families.”

“Pristine Auction is extremely honored and proud to be the official NSCC Auction platform benefiting our disabled veteran military men, woman and disabled children of active-duty military personnel,” said Jared Kavlie, president and founder of Pristine Auction. “We salute the commitment and great support non-profit Military Missions In Missions and Signatures For Soldiers provides those who serve and sacrifice for our Nation.”
