Locals collect sports memories


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Dozens of sports enthusiasts made their way to Valley View Mall Saturday for the Sports Card & Collectibles show.

About forty tables lines the center of the mall, each one filled with vintage sports cards, games, framed pictures, even old sports magazines.

Organizers said it's a way to chat with sports fans and relive favorite teams' successes.

"People love to collect. They love to collect whether it's stamps, or it's coins, whether it's sports memorabilia. And with the sports memorabilia, of course, we're all taking a walk down memory lane and that's what we like to do," said Gus Zabel, promoter of the Sports Card & Collectibles Show.

The collectible show runs at the mall in October and February. Sunday is the final day of the event.
