With the dust just settling on the end of the 38th National just outside Chicago, collectors start making plans for next years and beyond. National show organizers announced that Cleveland will host the 2018 show on August 1st – 5th.  The 40th National show will return back to Rosemont for 2019 and be held July 31st – Aug 4th. Then in 2020, in what was a surprise to some collectors, the show will go back to Atlantic City on July 29th-Aug. 2nd.
