This special exhibit by the Collectors Club of Chicago is in addition to the regular exhibits by the members of the COMPEX clubs.
Once again, COMPEX will have its traditional Youth/Beginners Booth with free stamps and activities for new collectors of all ages, whether they are new to the hobby or just started on their collections. Information about collecting is also available for those wanting to get started in the hobby, regardless of age.
A bourse of approximately 40 dealers, including a few postcard dealers, will be participating to fill the needs of all levels of collecting interests.
