I was there today and felt it was better than the last few shows. Decent pre-war selections, if a little pricey. Dealers more willing to work on prices for 50's and 60's cards though

Crazy busy all day today, chatting with Net54 folks, picking up consignments, etc. It's always great to see everyone, and I always recommend people come to the show. The people part of the hobby is best at shows.

Plus, Dan McKee is set up! How often does that happen anymore?

The show was very good and had a lot of interesting vintage material. Al is always great to talk with, and he was even chaperoned this time by his son. Gotta keep that papa in line!

Dan McKee had a trove of baseball material, and is as knowledgeable as any dealer about the sport's cards and printed ephemera. What a treat to have him exhibit, and to see the treasures he brought!

If you've got time today, go!

Cheers,
Mike

I went on Sat and had a Greatt time. Lots of Vintage and Pre War Stuff.Chatted with Dan McGee and Al from Love of the Game. Dan had a lot of rare cards and Cigarette packs and Al had some of the Rare items on display from his Auction. I picked up a Real Nice T204 Ramley from Bill Chappell and a Nice T202 Triple Folder from another dealer. I also picked up an empty Helmar and Murad Cigarette packs with a card inside of each. All of the dealers were willing to work with the buyers and items were fairly priced. I Stopped in the Casino on my way out and hit on the Roulette Wheel for $300.00. It was well worth the Trip. Great way to spend a Sat afternoon.

I was there with my son. I really didn't have much time to look at much as keeping a 4 year old interested and from grabbing things is a pretty full time job. We did pick up a box of Topps Heritage, love the 66s, and had fun ripping packs when we got home, searching for Orioles.

Johnny- I had no idea you liked T206 scraps. You should post more often about them.

Next VF show, lets meet up there.

Default Overall an ok show

Friday was a rather brutal day not much action either buying or selling. Saturday i bought and spent a decent amount actually spent a little more than i sold, but since this is just a hobby for me thats ok as i bought some decent items including a few Turkey Reds, Sunday was my best day by far as far as selling goes, did not buy as much but still made a few purchases , was actually rather busy most of the day including a few customers that decided to come back to purchase an item from me they saw earlier in the weekend. there was a point this weekend i figured i wouldnt be back, but i think Sunday may bring me back again next time.

It's very good to hear of positive news at shows. Thanks for the report.
