These are all the ones I’m aware of. You can also go to the golf course and try and get free autographs. Never tried it and wouldn’t want to spend my time doing that there. But I’ve talked to people in town who’ve had lots of success.

I'm there every year and setup outside next to Baseball Nostalgia in the Doubleday Field parking lot. Sell licensed, matted photos and licensed Postal Service related items from baseball events, and First Day Covers. Swing by and say hello .

Missing the induction this year in Cooperstown however attending the National, Browns Training Camp. I have been to Cooperstown 2 out of the last 3 years with my son and it was an awesome experience. If you have never attended a HOF Induction it absolutely should be a "bucket list" item. A few points:
- The weather is usually hot & humid. Bring suntan lotion, water, hat, etc. Last year was terrific weather, much cooler and less humidity. We kept a cooler in the car with plenty of cold drinks. Bring a backpack.
- If you are staying outside of Cooperstown, get into Cooperstown early - have breakfast at the Cooperstown Diner.
- You can park for free on a side street - usually pays for breakfast and then some..
- If you can purchase a HOF Membership. My wife purchased a HOF Presidents Circle Membership that gives you some extra goodies + early entry privileges - well worth the $$$.
- If you can try to get to the Hall on Friday - the weekend is packed.
- Don't forget to get your items postmarked at the post office directly across from the HOF.
- Spend sometime at the VFW card show, have lunch at Lake Front Park, attend the Ford Frick ceremony, HOF Round-table on Monday, etc.
Overall enjoy your time there, enjoy the shops, the people, etc. I had some great discussions with David Van Horne, Denny McLain, etc.

Last year temps were mild so it was pretty good. Looks like the show is Fri/Sat from a google search. There is also a live auction there. I think I went one year with my ex-wife. Now that I go with my buddies we drink way too much to even think about going to a live auction. I want to say that is Saturday evening but I'm not 100% certain. I haven't gone to that in 15 years I think.

When we are talking show there may be 20 dealers or so. Don't expect 100 dealers at the show. I know TedZ has setup there. He probably can give better info than me.

Hi Stephen

I would say that you described the VFW BB card show quite well. I have been setting up at this show since the early 1980's. It has always been a great BB card and memorabilia show.
Over the years, some really outstanding "walk-ins" have come into this show. I missed this show for the 1st time last year, because the National coincided with the Cooperstown show.
I'll not be setting up this year, also.

As you noted, when the show gets pretty crowded, it's difficult to move around in the small showroom. I recommend attending the show (either Friday or Saturday) between the hours
of 1PM - 4 PM. That time period is usually not as crowded as it is in the morning or late afternoon. The Auction usually starts about 6 (or 7) PM on Saturday nite.

Say hello to Don and Bill......the promoters of this fine Show for 39 years in Cooperstown.

I always like the VFW show, I was there in early 80's a kid and stop by whenever I am there for the induction Sunday. I always remember that show 35 years down the road

If I recall used to be able to pick up a hotdog right outside also.

now I want to go

I'll be in Cooperstown - but a week early. Up that way for work and will be stopping by on Friday the 20th with my son.

Any good recommendations for eats? We'll basically have a day in Cooperstown (Friday) and will have to head out that evening. Also, is there any reason to spend time in some of the shops instead of all day in the Hall?

The last time I was in Cooperstown was with my dad, summer of 1988, not long after Willie Stargell was enshrined.

Thanks to the recommendations from this thread, I've changed my itinerary around for the weekend.

Friday: Cooperstown. Hope to see some of you when we stop by the show.

Saturday: All day on the lake (staying at my cousins' lake house on Skaneatles).

Sunday: Induction Ceremony then get the hell out of town.
