New convention promises cards and more | New
Kentucky’s first annual card collectors convention kicks off Saturday, July 10 at the Central Bank Center in Rupp Arena. Customers can choose to attend one or both days.
VIP tickets are available online but will not be available at the door. The Card Convention offers a wide selection of collectibles in sports and non-sports trading cards and card games such as Pokemon and YuGiOh and promises to combine all the attraction of American hobby with pop culture, clothing, streetwear and sneakers.
The convention will also feature famous guests such as sports icon Darryl Strawberry, wrestler Jake “The Snake” Roberts and American Ninja Warrior Jessie Graff.
Pop culture will be well represented by Eric Stuart (Pokemon, YuGiOh) and artist J Hammond (Rick and Morty, Steven Universe, Marvel), and onsite authentication will be available.
“We’re on high steam,” said convention owner Jarrod Greer of The Inner Geek. “We’ve sold out the vendor stands, so everyone should be able to find a lot of what interests them. There is a full list of celebrities on kycardcon.com, and on our Facebook page.
Tickets for the event cost $ 20 for Saturday, $ 15 for Sunday, or $ 30 for both days. VIP tickets cost $ 40. Visit buy.growtix.com/eh/Kentucky_Card_Collector_Con.
