ATLANTIC CITY — The National Sports Collectors Convention kicked into high gear Thursday, with hobbyists and corporate movers and shakers flooding the show floor of the Atlantic City Convention Center. 

While collectors and dealers were wheeling-and-dealing, some of the biggest names in sports were signing autographs at the TRISTAR Autograph Pavilion.
