Default Best Card Shows for PreWar?

Hello everyone! First post here besides a WTB post. I was hoping to tap into the knowledge and experience of this group in asking what card shows have you all been to where you've had the best luck / success finding pre-war baseball cards?

Thanks,

Bill

The biggest card shows will always have the most selection from any era. For me that would be the Shriners show in early November. Canít wait!

Jason, are you referring the Shriners show in MA, not too far from Boston?

The Philly Show always has a bunch of vintage and the only show I have done out of state besides the national. A lot of great dealers and hobbyists there.

Not been to the Philly show, but I've heard that next to the National it is the best

I can't speak for Jason, but the Shriner's show in Wilmington MA, about 20 minute Northeast of Boston always has a lot of pre-war. It is Nov 4-6, here is the website http://gbsccconvention.com/ By far the best show in New England.

Note there is also a show at the Shriner's in the Spring, put on by Rich Altman I believe, which is good but not quite at the same level as the November show.

The Megalopolis (or what some people call ACELA) is by far the best area for pre-war cards. Basically, anything from New England to Chantilly on the East Coast (Including Philadelphia and Strongsville) is going to have the greatest preponderance of pre-war (and pre-1980) cards

I'm going to second this. The fall GBSC Shiner's show is the one show to attend in New England, I put it in the great category. It's on a similar level as any Philly show. The Rich Altman show in the spring is fair-good depending on the year, I'd compare it to the White Plains, NY. I can take or leave the spring show but the fall is worth the drive every time.

Yes I should have clarified. Shriners in Wilmington November 4-6 this year. This is a terrific show, lots of heavy hitters come in from all over the country. Itís not the National or anything like that but itís a great show. Canít wait!

I do the Shriners show in Wilmington (used to be the Boston card collectors show. I have done every one since day 1 (tells you I am old). But a great vintage show with many old time dealers including the Great Bob Thing. Bob goes back to the early 1970ís.

Default vintage show

Hi billbays- not sure where you are located. The April show in Strongsville,
Ohio (immediately south of Cleveland) is a wonderful vintage show. It has
a retro feel to it, people elbow-to elbow and almost no modern stuff in sight.

Default Card show in So. Cal.?

Please let me know. I would like to reserve a table to sell some "dupes" from 1909 to 1969. Who knows maybe I can find some Schutter Johnson's and 48-49 Leafs for myself.

Thanks, Mike Ryan gmryan9@msn.com
