Big Night and Fenway Sports Management will host the second annual Fenway Card Show at Boston’s Fenway Park. The event welcomes over 100 collectors, dealers, exhibitors, manufacturers, licensors, hobby heavyweights, and industry innovators worldwide.
“From new and vintage sports card products to memorabilia, autographs, and groundbreaking physical and digital collectibles, the Fenway Card Show aspires to become the landmark showcase and gathering place for the hobby’s most influential players, enthusiasts, media, and spectators,” MLB states.
