A Star Wars Collector’s Journey

April 15, 2017, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Star Wars Collectors’ Stage - W307, 3rd Floor

Star Wars collecting is a vast hobby with collectors all over the world amassing memorabilia for the past 40 years. The sheer amount of items and information can be overwhelming to those getting started. Gus Lopez will take you through his personal journey from beginner to advanced collector. Using examples from Gus’s experience, he'll cover how to connect locally with other like-minded collectors while also building an international network of collectors for trading and advice in specific areas of the hobby. Learn about places to buy, books to read, and forums to join. Hear about some amazing discoveries and the conditions that enabled some of those opportunities to happen. Gus will share information about events and conventions where other collectors meet and offer tips for finding Star Wars collectibles while traveling. Finally, every Star Wars collector has a focus and a budget. Gus will walk through examples about how to build a theme around a collection while not blowing a budget. Even amazing Star Wars pieces can be found on a shoestring budget if you know what, where, and how to look, and Gus will share some recent examples to illustrate.
