It’s convention season, and that means that the next Philly Non-Sports Card Show will soon be upon us. The show is set to take place October 15 & 16 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. Once again, Garbage Pail Kids will have a big presence at the show. Longtime GPK and Wacky Packages artist Neil Camera and GPK sketch artist David Acevedo will be guests at the show. Additional artists scheduled to attend are Neil’s daughter, Halsey Camera, Ted Dastick Jr., and Chris Foreman.
There will once again be a number of official Topps promo cards at the show. Anyone attending on Saturday will receive a GPK Halloween themed card done by Neil Camera. Sunday attendees will receive a Wacky Halloween card done by Halsey Camera. There will also be the traditional Saturday dinner at the Hilton Garden Inn. Anyone interested in attending the dinner should email Roxanne Toser to reserve your spot. Neil and Halsey Camera will be the guest speakers at the dinner. Attendees at the dinner will receive the 1a promo card of Adam & Nick, done by artist David Acevedo. The 1b version, Billy & Eddie, will be given to show attendees on Sunday.
The show will be open Saturday 10/15 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and Sunday 10/16 from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Tickets will be available at the door for $12 per day or $20 for a two day pass. Another great opportunity for collectors to attend the largest non-sports trading card show in the country!
