What is a UK card show?

If you’ve ever seen or attended a comic book convention, think of a card show as the equivalent for trading card games. At most UK card shows you’ll find a great mix of vendors selling a variety of items such as sealed products, graded cards, single cards, accessories and more. There is usually a designated area for guests to open products, trade or even play TCG’s.

Unless the event organiser specifies otherwise, most UK card shows will have vendors selling a mixture of products from major brands such as Topps, Pokémon, Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, Final Fantasy, One Piece, Magic the Gathering, MetaZoo and many more.

You will often find an incredible range of graded cards from most major companies such as PSA, Beckett, CGC, SGC, Pocket Card Grading, Platinum Card Grading, MGC, Ace Grading and more.

Some the accessories you can expect to see are sleeves, toploaders, semi-rigid card holders, binders, deck boxes, playmats plus many more.

How much does it cost to go to a UK card show?

Ticket prices seem to vary between the ranges of FREE and £65 for guests depending on which types of tickets you want to buy. Some events will offer options for families, some may offer weekend tickets when events are spread over 2 days. There are also options for early access, VIP and afternoon only for most events.

We hope this helps you find what you need to come join us at a future UK card show.
