Are you a sports card enthusiast, or maybe you have a few boxes of cards stashed away in the attic that might be worth some money? Well, you need to check out this event.

Dude. Growing up I spent so much money on football cards. My cousins and I would save up all year and then meet up at the State Fair to blow our savings on football cards. At the time we never thought of it as an investment, we just loved sports and collecting memorabilia from our favorite players.  Fast forward to this coming October and we might actually be sitting on a fortune, and so could you!

Missoula's local Zootown Sports Cards is hosting its next sports cards and collectibles show. This is a family-friendly event with free admission. Check out the details.

Date: Saturday, October 14th from 10 am - 5 pm

Where: Hilton Garden Inn Ballroom ( 3720 N Reserve St, Missoula, MT 59808 )

Gone are the days of flipping through the latest Becket magazine to try and find out if you were sitting on a rookie card gold mine. Now you can just take to the internet, but for the real deal, I'd suggest stopping by an event like this. It'll be packed with knowledgeable collectors and enthusiasts alike. Who knows, you might just have a fortune stuffed away in your attic.
