Club Auction TCSCC is happy to announce that periodic auctions have returned to our shows at Valley West. The store space we used to use has once again opened up and the mall is allowing us to use that space until a new tenant is found. The next auction will be at the upcoming show on Saturday, April 30th, beginning at 2:30pm. One change to the auctions is that all items must be pre-registered. No walk-in items will be accepted day of auction. To pre-register items for sale and for more information contact Jack Fei at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-698-1691 in the evening. TCSCC would like to thank member and promoter Joe Florenzano of Triple Crown for hosting auctions at his Southtown Mall shows while we waited for space to reopen at Valley West. Please continue to visit the Southtown shows in 2016.
Dealers Added to Club Shows With the reopening of one of the store spaces at Valley West, TCSCC has room to add a few more dealer tables. Be sure to look for the open door and sign reading "more dealers" and go in to see what bargains they have for you.
Upcoming Autograph Authentications Get your autographed items certified and authenticated by one of the nations leading authenticators, James Spence Authentication. They will be doing on-site authentications during an upcoming TCSCC show at Valley West (June or July, watch here for details). JSA will be there during show hours. It is recommended that you come early, as they need time to do their thing. Don't arrive ten minutes before the show closes and expect to get your item done. Costs vary depending on the item.
