I hate to ask but don't you mean Pete Pihos and not Sam Pihos.

BTW == I agree with your comment about the exorbitant price of almost any athlete active or retired.

That's my neck of the woods. But I grew up in Marietta, Ga.
The only shows I ever remembered were at the Cobb Civic Center.
There might be a few small shows at the Mariott or something I recall in the past. Basically there is nothing much here. I visist the card store in Kennesaw area once a moon.
Todd- I never heard of your shows, when was this?? Would love to hear more about them. My elders were born/raised there. I moved back in 97.

Oh, he must live in those new condo-ish building then. Those went up fast. It indeed is a small world. That's basically at my back door too.

There's a pretty decent show in Nashville - about a 3.5 hour drive depending on what part of Atlanta you're coming from.

The show is twice a month and has about 30 tables. However, twice a year, it's a big show - almost 200 tables. The twice monthly show is fair but probably not worth a 7 hour round trip drive. The twice a year show probably is.

Feb 23rd is the next big show. It's at Lighthouse Christian School on Blue Hole Road in Antioch (convenient if coming from Atlanta). Beckett grading is there, JSA is there, and Denny McLain will be there. It's definitely not the national, but by the sound of things, it may be your best reasonable option.

You nailed it, right down the street from the Rome Braves and his favorite restaurant Bella Roma.

Thanks for the info Robert. He will definitely have something to look forward to in February, this week he'll be at Chopfest at SunTrust.
