About Us

Card Con is an event organized by Sports Cards Direct, one of the largest online retailers of hobby product in the UK. The event emerged from a desire to replicate the vibrant atmosphere and community spirit of the National Sports Card Show, which occurs every year in the United States and features collectors and hobbyists from all walks of life. The event will feature a gathering of collectors, dealers, and exhibitors specializing in sports and trading card collectables and memorabilia.

With aspirations to become one of Europe's premier trading card and memorabilia events, Card Con returns this year poised to surpass its previous accomplishments with an event aimed at fostering deeper connections within the card-collecting community.

Attendees can expect a diverse range of offerings, from rare cards in the Pokemon, Lorcana, Magic the Gathering and Sports categories to exclusive pop culture memorabilia and game worn items. Its organizers extend a warm invitation to all individuals and businesses interested in participating in the event. Whether as an attendee or a vendor, Card Con promises an immersive experience, uniting enthusiasts from across the UK in their shared passion for trading cards and memorabilia.

Scheduled for April 20th-21st, 2024, Card Con II will offer enthusiasts unparalleled access to a wide array of collectables and hobby products. The event invites collectors, enthusiasts, and industry professionals from all walks of life to converge for a weekend of discovery and camaraderie.
