View Full Version : At the National!!

07-28-2009, 08:13 PM
Leon, myself and Richard will be set up from Wednesday thru Saturday. Between the 3 of us we have a huge selection of 19th and early 20th century cards, baseball and football. Many of the cards from the posts of "looking for at the National" will be for sale at our table.

Please stop by if only to chat and introduce yourself as this is the traditional Net54 gathering place.

Everyone have a blast at the National. I would love to, and actually planned to, attend my first National but as a bartender what would they do without me on a weekend. (Note to Leon... Next year hold a private gala and hire myself as the keep. I would gladly accept tips in the form of pre-war beaters.)

Have a great time everyone.

Ive been to four nationals, but in recent years, it hasnt been financially feasible. Im hoping next year somehow I can return. Have they announced the city yet?

I found the National to be a blast. I always got some stuff, but seeing incredible material, and making friends and seeing old ones is all part of the experience.

Everyone have a GREAT time and I look forward to all the pictures and stories on buys/sells/sightings in Cleveland.

This was my first National. I walked every single aisle. And I am friggin' exhausted after doing so. The place is absolutely huge.

A great pleasure to meet Ted Z. in person and chat T206 a bit. Very nice also to meet Frank B. from Vegas, who I have done several deals with in the past. And a special thanks to Scott B. for showing me (and even letting me hold) a very special card I had never seen in person before.

I pretty much only collect T206s, so that's what caught my eye at the show --- Coolest T206 I saw was a Cy Young (glove shows) with a BL460 back. iPhone photo below.

That Young is incredible.
