Collecting in any hobby is an ongoing, daily affair, but it's at the conventions where everything comes together, and in our matchcover collecting hobby it's a dazzling, year-long string of events that stretches from coast to coast and includes locations in both the U.S. and Canada. Anytime you have collectors and covers coming togther, you know there's going to be lots of fun for everyone.
