The National Sports Collectors Convention wrapped up Sunday and was a resounding success. The introduction of the first ever Case Break Pavilion was a huge hit with attendees. Round the clock activities made it a destination point and passersby were caught up in the action. Numerous products were broken, by the case, including Topps Allen & Ginter, Panini Prime Hockey, Upper Deck Exquisite Football and Exquisite Golf, just to name a few.
