Very disappointing show. We went last evening for an hour.

Unless you wish to see a preview of the cards from forth coming
Memory Lane or Huggins Auction- want to purchase a few
over-priced,albeit high grade1950's cards- the material on display
was very weak, at best.

A few dealers had a few ungraded tobacco cards- but the condition
was beater at best.

All major grading services were there...albeit SGC was not grading on site.

Not worth the trip if you are looking to buy any meaningful cards.

This show never has much in the way of vintage, and perhaps the summer vacation season has taken a toll on this particular event this weekend.

The only reasons I go to this show are:
1) submit cards to SGC (and maybe PSA, we'll see)
2) bring my boys and search for their passion: Starting Lineup and MacFarlane figures,
and
3) try to recall the good old days of just going to a show.

My oldest son made me raise an eyebrow last night, though, when I asked him if he wanted to go...he said, "I want to maybe get some really old baseball cards."
I replied, cautious and nervous, "What you mean, like 1980s?" hoping to keep the family finances intact.
To this he responded, "No like really really old. Like when baseball first started!"

The last thing I need is to spend time trying to figure out how to explain to my wife that the card budget must be tripled because I can't find a way to stop my 6 year old son from buying 19th Century baseball cards!

So Bruce's news may actually be good for me.
We'll see how it goes on Sunday!

I found a wide array of T206 cards last night -- many more than are typically at the White Plains show. I was quite happy to add this toughie -- with an orange background and an Old Mill wet sheet transfer -- to my T206 Reacquisition Campaign (and at a very reasonable price, I might add):

My partner and I have been asked many times to setup at this show, four days is too long. They should try and cut it down to Friday Night/Sat/Sun or maybe just even two days. The promoters are great guys and they do a nice job with their shows, just hard to get that much time off and costs of traveling.

While I too think highly of the show's promoters, any show held at this venue ranks as my least favorite in the hobby/industry. It's akin to drowning in a sea of shiny cards and Sharpie-signed pieces (or living amongst the bobbin'-headed residents of Chachkatown). I have worked that show perhaps 20 times and have never came home with anything outside of a headache.

....probably add that it only takes me 10 minutes to drive there, so I am pretty much always happy to see the show come to town, even if there are usually only 3 or 4 dealers set up with prewar material.

This time I was surprised by the additional of perhaps another 5 or 6 tables of prewar stuff. It's not a lot by higher standards, but from my perspective it is fine....

I was at the show on Friday. Not alot of high end vintage cards but there are nice deals to be had. It is always nice to submitt cards in person to SGC. Knowing the cards are safe and getting a quick turnaround is nice. I go to this show mainly for this reason. Mike Goldberg and Brian Dwyer were nice to talk to and very helpful as usual. I would not go to the show with high expectations but I think you would find a surprise or two there.

I attended the show today and submitted a couple of interesting cards to SGC. Brian always enjoys seeing my unusual pieces and they were also able to take care of a re-holder for me. Mike also informed me that my grading order is ready for pick-up at the office, once again ahead of schedule.

I also highly recommend Beckett Grading Services for any oversize items that have been too large for the other grading companies in the past. Andy, the vintage grader over there, is a pleasure to deal with and there are a lot of possibilities with their 8 1/2" X 11" holders.

Unfortunately, I had to leave the show quickly to put in a few hours at the office today so I really cannot comment on the availability of vintage cards at dealer tables.

Well, I have to say I was very happy with my trip to the show today. I usually go in with low expectations that only include dropping off grading submissions, so there was upside available.

I agree that there seemed to be a few extra tables of vintage material there. I didn't buy anything, but was certainly tempted plenty.

Met Michael and Brian at the SGC table again. Excellent, friendly service as usual, and I survived Michael's free handout of their latest magazine issue with my wife being present.
Stay tuned for a few of my favorite sunsets in SGC holders.

Enjoyed helping my boys shop for some Starting Lineup figures and a couple grab bags.

best time I've had at a show in awhile.
