The 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention will be here before we know it and, as always, Dave & Adam’s will be there with a huge presence. This year’s National is being held from July 29-August 2 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.
One of the best parts about the National is all the special promotions and events the manufacturers hold during the show. It can get rather confusing trying to remember what you need to buy and how much of it, and that’s where Dave & Adam’s can help you.
Turn your trip to the National into a true VIP experience with the help of our National Concierge, Kevin Kramarz. Kevin is very familiar with all the manufacturer programs, and he can get you set up with what you need to take advantage of all of them. Contact Kevin at 1-888-440-9787 ext. 137 or email at [email protected] so your experience at the show will not only be enjoyable, but potentially profitable. You can place your orders for the National with Kevin ahead of time and have them ready and waiting for you in Chicago.
The service doesn’t stop there either. Once you’re at the show you’ll receive the Dave & Adam’s VIP treatment with access to our private lounge, so you can open your boxes and cases in a comfortable environment and get the chance to meet with fellow VIPs (maybe even make a few trades). You will also be able to store your purchases in a secure area while you enjoy the rest of the show.
One of the events that Kevin can help you get into is the annual Panini VIP Party. Collectors that purchase a predetermined dollar amount of select Panini products at the show receive a ticket to this exclusive and very popular event
In the past Panini VIP party attendees have received an amazing array of free gifts and free packs loaded with phenomenal memorabilia and autograph cards. These cards are made exclusively for the National, and cannot be found anywhere else.
The best part about the Panini VIP party is, of course, the chance to hang out and get your picture taken with some current and former superstar athletes. The list of previous celebrity attendees includes: Kyrie Irving, Yasiel Puig, Joe Namath, Johnny Manziel, Gordie Howe, Dominique Wilkins, Tom Glavine and Chris Chelios. You never know who Panini will bring to the party. And did I forget to mention you will get autographs of every athletes in attendance?
Upper Deck has their own special soiree during the National, the Diamond Club Member & Candidate Reception. Dave & Adam’s is an Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealer, and we can get you access to this party. Contact Kevin for more details on what Upper Deck products are available to buy to get yourself a spot. Some of our customers got to meet Shaquille O’Neal during last year’s party.
One of our customers, Nelson, scored a huge prize at a previous Diamond Reception. He took home a Michael Jordan Chicago Blackhawks jersey that was signed by His Airness. As you can see from the picture below he is bowing down to the greatness of the jersey.
Other manufacturers will be announcing details of their National promotions in the near future. Whether it’s Topps, Leaf, Tristar, Historic Autographs or anyone else let Dave & Adam’s hook you up with whatever you need to take part in all the fun.
Stay tuned for more information about what Dave & Adam’s has in store for the National in the weeks leading up to the show..
