GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Hyatt Regency Greenwich will hold a special ephemera conference and an exhibit featuring sports and entertainment activities through historic ephemera from March 20 through 22.
This one-of-a-kind conference features the finest vintage paper and ephemera exhibitors from across the United States, Canada and Europe. Ephemera, paper items that were meant to be discarded after use, are items that have now become collectibles, including tin, plastic, metal and more.

Collectors will delight in this rare merchandise while enjoying conferences, talks, discussions and presentations.
This year’s feature exhibit, “The Sporting Life,” will spotlight a variety of sports, games, pastimes and entertaining activities through historic ephemera. Attendees will learn about subjects such as baseball's early days, the role of African-American athletes in basketball and how the changing values of society impacted recreational activities throughout history.
