Strongsville, OH, March 21, 2024 – The Strongsville Sports Collectors Convention (SSCC),  

the country’s longest-running all vintage sports card and memorabilia show and the go-to event for collectors “in the know,” will take place in Strongsville, OH (Brunswick Arena, 15381 Royalton Road) from April 19-21. One of the hobby’s most popular and important annual events for rare and vintage sports cards and memorabilia, the SSCC draws thousands of passionate collectors from across the U.S. each year. 


The convention is sponsored by Lelands, the original sports auction house and the premier appraisers and auctioneers in the hobby; Heritage Auctions, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer; and Mile High Card Company, a leading vintage sports memorabilia auction house – along with autograph authenticator James Spence Authentication (JSA) and card grading firm Certified Sports Guaranty (CSG).

 

This year’s show has a new, larger home, providing increased comfort and room to move around for attendees, as well as more dealers and more autograph signers. After years of being held at the Best Western Conference Center on Royalton Road, the annual 3-day event has moved next door to Brunswick Arena for what promises to be a premier show experience. 

 

For those attendees who want to better understand the value of items or collections they own, the show offers the finest dealers and auction houses who can provide expert “on the spot” appraisals for their items. Attendees should plan to bring their items and tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience available for free at the show.


This year’s SSCC will feature a grand slam lineup of autograph sessions with Hall of Famers from baseball (Tom Glavine) and football (Ozzie Newsome and Willie Roaf) – as well as signings by current and former Cleveland sports greats such as Browns star wide receiver Amari Cooper.


In addition to Cooper, other current Browns players holding signing sessions are wide receiver Elijah Moore, placekicker Dustin Hopkins, offensive tackle Dawand Jones, cornerback Martin Emerson Jr., and safety Ronnie Hickman Jr. 


Along with the aforementioned Newsome, former Browns greats doing signings include Bernie Kosar, Phil Dawson, Gary Collins, Reggie Langhorne, Brian Brennan, Kevin Mack, Greg Pruitt Peyton Hillis, and Bob Golic. The schedule also boasts former Indians stars Julio Franco and Toby Harrah.


Show hours for Strongsville Sports Collectors Convention 2024 are Friday, April 19 (2 pm – 7 pm), Saturday, April 20 (10 am – 6 pm) and Sunday, April 21 (10 am – 4 pm).


Collectors and fans can take advantage of discounted admission tickets online now at strongsvilleports.com – or purchase them for full price at the door. Autograph tickets are also available on the website but can be purchased at the show while they last.


The SSCC features the “best of the best” dealers, authenticators, and auction houses nationwide. Each year, collectors from coast-to-coast flock to Strongsville to buy and sell to the country’s top vintage sports dealers. Attendees also have access to a wide array of experts for appraisal of their items, can bring their cards for grading by CSG, and submit autographed memorabilia for authentication by JSA – both of whom are the exclusive providers of these services at the SSCC.
