"Brotherly Love Memorabilia's mission with hosting this show is simple, bringing the hobby back to the average fan," says Christopher Huey. "Autographs will be a nominal $10 to $15, and while they may not be the hottest names in sports, most people easily recognize their contribution to the sports world. There will be something at this show for everyone, from the novice collector to the those that have collected for decades, and at all price levels."
Christopher goes on to mention that Brotherly Love Memorabilia will be hosting two free card breaks for the kids attending the show. "There is nothing more important to me than getting kids back into the sports card and collectible hobby. I grew up being able to attend card shows with my dad and could afford buying 36 count wax box for $20-30. Nowadays, a kid is lucky to get a pack for that." He also states that there will be a large container of baseball cards in the kids break area, that kids of all ages can dig through and keep any cards they find, some even containing a sticker for a prize.
Additional shows in 2019 are planned for July, October and December, with exact dates and times to be determined.
