What are the dates of the next “Philly Show”?
The 65th Philly Non-Sports Card Show will be held on October 15th & 16th, 2016.

Why is this show called “The Philly Non-Sports Card Show” if it is going to be held in Allentown?
The “Philly Non-Sports Card Show” is the oldest show of its kind in the country, dating back to the mid-1980s. From its inception through several years ago, the show was run by Frank and Phyllis Reighter. The show is now run by Roxanne Toser Enterprises, Inc. and we retain the show’s heritage by continuing to use the “Philly” name. Ironically, the show has never actually been held in the city of Philadelphia.

Why the Merchants Square Mall? And why are you running a “mall show”?
The Merchants Square Mall is a collectibles and antique market. It is not a mall with Macy’s and The Gap. Inside MSM, you will find over 100,000 square feet of specialty shops, antiques, and collectibles with approximately 40 vendors and on-site parking for 550 vehicles. The MSM vendors will be open during our show hours for anyone who would like to visit their shops after attending the show. There is also a restaurant on-site and it will be open for business during show hours.

Are there other things in the area that my non-collecting family members and/or friends might enjoy while I shop at the show?
Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom is just 5 miles from The Merchants Square Mall. The amusement park offers 200 acres of more than 100 rides, games, restaurants, and attractions. The Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA is just 7 miles from the Merchants Square Mall. In addition to the casino, The Sands offers luxury brand outlet shoppes and accommodations  The Crayola Experience is 25 minutes from the Merchants Square Mall. Additionally, the antiques and collectibles vendors inside The Merchants Square Mall are a lot of fun to shop at.
