The nation’s leading sportscard and memorabilia manufacturers and dealers will be at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill., again this year, as SportsFest 2008 is set for June 6-8, just outside the “Windy City.”  For just $12 each day or $25 for all three days (parking and children 12 and under are free), sports fans and sports memorabilia collectors are sure to be entertained, as the nation’s top dealers, manufacturers and authenticators will be on hand to help you find the prized piece of memorabilia to add to your collection.

More than 250 booths have been sold but a limited number of tables remain so reserve yours today and be a part of one of the most well-attended collectibles shows in the country.

In addition to the wide variety of sports memorabilia available, SportsFest 2008 will also feature a diverse autograph lineup headlined by four Hall of Fame members of the Cincinnati Reds “Big Red Machine” championship squads of the 1970s. Joe Morgan, Pete Rose, Tony Perez and Johnny Bench will join fellow Hall of Famer John Havlicek, baseball legends Al Oliver, Lee Smith, Bill Madlock, Joe Pepitone, and the “Mad Hungarian” Al Hrabosky in the lineup. Other autograph guests include NFL standouts Chuck Foreman, Billy Sims, Randy Gradishar, coach Buddy Ryan, Craig Morton and Jim Langer, along with Chicago-area favorites Paul Konerko, Nick Swisher, A.J.
