The 39th Sports Card and Memorabilia Expo will be held at the Toronto International Centre on 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada from November 13th-15th, 2009. Always a large draw, collectors and dealer will be able to browse hundreds of tables of rare and not-so-rare sports cards, non-sports cards, and various non-card related items that you would have trouble finding elsewhere.
