The 75th Philly Non-Sports Card Show is coming up soon on October 16-17, 2021, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, located at 100 Station Avenue, in Oaks, PA.

The non-sport and entertainment trading card event has been continuously running since the 1980s. The 75th show features four trading card artists, the return of Philadelphia-based trading card manufacturer Rittenhouse Archives, and an in-person appearance by Adam Bomb from Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids.

Bomb will be available for photos with collectors throughout the show. The four artists displaying and selling their work include David Gross, Robert Jimenez, Smokin’ Joe, and Lily Mercado.

Non-sports card dealers will be selling trading cards depicting movies, television shows, comics, history, and more. Trading card manufacturers The Collector Connection, Magic Marker Art, Rittenhouse Archives, Sidekick, and Cryptozoic Entertainment will be exhibiting at the show.

Attendees will get several free exclusive promotional cards created especially for the show. Two of the cards are a special set of licensed Topps promo cards celebrating the 35th anniversary of Garbage Pail Kids.

All attendees, vendors, and show staff will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination. The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center encourages masks to be worn within the building, regardless of vaccination status.

The show is open on Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Sunday is 10 AM to 3 PM.
