Hawaii Pop Con is one of the largest trading card and sports card conventions across the islands. Attendees can look forward to several events at the two-day convention, including meet and greet sessions with YouTube influencers such as UnlistedLeaf and Chumlee, live box breaks, live band performances, trading card game tournaments and much more.
