2016 WSSCA convention

The Washington State Sports Collectors Association (WSSCA) will hold their fall convention in Shoreline on November 4-5, Saturday (9am - 5pm) and Sunday (9am - 3pm), at Meridian Park Elementary School, N 175th and Meridian Ave N.

It will feature free autograph guest, former UW Husky football star Joe Jarzynka.

WSSCA is a group of sports memorabilia collectors who meet monthly in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. They also host two annual Conventions, in June and November.

"Some think sports collecting went away with M.C. Hammer and tape decks," says WSSCA VP of Publicity, Conor Donahue. Donahue jokes, "but it's very much alive and healthy.

"The hobby's maturing. Collectors are getting more sophisticated and there's great stuff coming onto the market because of it. There's been a lot of extra interest in our upcoming show, from buyers and sellers, because of the press the contracts have generated for the hobby as a whole." 
"We're starting to see more families come out, which is great. It's always fun to watch a kid discover something they think is cool for the first time," he says with a smile.

Come to see not only old Seattle items like the Pilots, Rainiers, early Mariners, Sonics and Seahawks, but also a good cross section of material spanning the decades from Ty Cobb to Russell Wilson.

Donahue says, "there are usually some bigger ticket items, but there's plenty of affordable stuff too. Cards, autographs, memorabilia…. you name it. 
"There are some real treasures at every show. Unlike many other shows that have the same items from table to table, we offer a place where true collectors can locate that hard to find item to add to your collection." 

Daily Admission is $3.00 for Adults, Children under 12 years, Free.

Raffles for merchandise gift certificates!
