2020 information will be posted closer to the show in July


2019 VIP Instructions - 2020 Instructions available in November.

You will need to make sure you have your printed e-ticket with you to pick up your VIP credentials at the show. The tickets were sent as part of the email you received when you purchased your VIP Package. We will begin distributing VIP credentials at 10:30AM on Wednesday 7/31. Enter the Convention Center using the Main Lobby. Look for the Kiosks which say VIPS WITH TICKETS.. At that kiosk, your ticket will be scanned and you will receive your VIP badge, your VIP Gift Bag, your VIP Autograph Tickets plus an information packet which has all you need to know for the week. If you come in on Wednesday afternoon, you will be directed to the Pristine Auctions VIP Reception which will be held in Room 14 at the Convention Center. Your VIP badge is required for entry. There will be light refreshments, prize drawings and Drew Pearson, Bill Cartwright and Ryan Klesko will be signing free autographs for VIPs from 3-4 PM. At 3:30 PM, VIPs will be permitted on the Show Floor to enjoy the Memory Lane 41’st National Sneak Peek until 8PM. Tristar Productions will have items on sale at the Party if you need something for these players to sign.

As a special added event beginning at 2:00 PM, all VIPs are eligible to attend a “Fireside Chat” with Gary Vaynerchuk (CEO Vaynerchuk Media) and Josh Luber, Co-Founder StockX) on the Future of Trading Cards. This event will be held in Room 14 of the Convention Center. Doors open at 1:45 PM. The Pristine Auctions VIP Reception begins at 2:30 PM on Wednesday, 7/31.

If you are unable to pick up your VIP credentials on Wednesday, the procedure is still the same. VIPs will have access to the show each morning Thursday-Sunday at 9:30 AM. Signs will direct you to the VIP entrance from which you can enter the Show each day.
