The Main Stage at the National Sports Collectors Convention was dedicated as the Mike Berkus Main Stage in a brief ceremony on Wednesday. Mike was the co-founder of the National and had participated in every event since 1980.
Current National Show Manager John Broggi said that a stage at the National had always been something that Mike felt would enhance the event and was pleased that several years ago we were able to create a stage in the Case Break Pavilion.
Jeff Rosenberg of Tristar Productions spoke of his long time relationship with Mike who he said was mentor and a friend.
Two of Mike’s sons, Dan and Nate, also spoke and thanked the National for the honor on behalf of their father.
