Collecting and Connecting

Sep 04, 2021 04:08PM ● By Candace Lagerhausen

As a child, James Ferree enjoyed collecting and trading sports cards. In the last year, he rediscovered his love for trading cards, and began collecting again, and connecting with old friends. James soon discovered that he had a passion for not just trading cards, but for the shows he was attending. “It was going to the shows that I found my love for the shows”, James said. He decided to use this passion to turn his childhood hobby into a business.


His company, Sports Wax Promotions, hosts and promotes events for sports trading cards, memorabilia, and collectibles. Brand new to the industry, Sports Wax Promotions is hosting their first ever event this weekend in Statesville. The show will feature everything from trading cards to sports jerseys, and is great for kids and families, all the way up to serious collectors.
