Default Texas Card Show- Comerica (Stars HQ) Center - Frisco Tx., April 26th-28th, 2019

As previously discussed Kyle Robertson and I are putting on a 200 table card show in Frisco Texas, on April 26-27-28, TexasCardShow.com. We are excited about doing it and have a lot of great ideas. We know there will be some 1970s Cowboys HOF'ers signing plus many others. Tables are first come first served. We are still working out some details but most of it can now be seen on a site we will share with the Dallas Card Show site.... Our site is TexasCardShow.Com. We don't have online ordering of tables so emailing or calling to reserve is it for now.
We are happy to have Heritage Auctions occupying the first set of tables and PWCC occupying the second set of tables doing appraisals, taking consignments etc. I think PWCC might offer some of their other services too but that is only speculation at this point. Robert Edward Auctions will be set up taking consignments, doing appraisals and signing folks up for their catalogs etc..Roger Neufeldt, of Sports Memories, will have tables at the front too with his myriad vintage cards. RMY Auctions will be doing expert photograph evaluations for free, along with buying/selling and trading. . Scott Brockelman and Dan Mckee have both signed up with their loads of vintage cards of all types. We expect a lot of other well known dealers and collectors to be on board too. SGC will be onsite taking submissions and Beckett will be doing RCR card grading Friday and Saturday and taking submissions all 3 days. PSA wasn't able to get someone here for this one. There hasn't been a show like this, in this area, for quite some time so it is sort of virgin territory. There could even be a walk in or two.
It will be held at the Dallas Stars Headquarters in the Comerica Center in Frisco, Texas. (just north of Dallas) right off of the Dallas North Tollway and Gaylord Parkway. It is a really nice and fairly new facility. There are 4000 stadium seats around the arena so there will be plenty of room to relax after a lot of walking the floor. There are a lot more details coming.
The show will be in an identical arena that shares a side with the Dallas Stars practice rink and has an identical layout except there will be stadium seats on all sides of it, as in a normal arena environment. Other things will be happening in a few other floor areas of the show but it is too early to disclose those details. Hope to see everyone there!!

The tentative autographs guests so far, as we are still working to get several others, are-


Billy Joe Dupree
Bump Wills
Lincoln Coleman
Tever Klutz
Abner Haynes
Mel Renfro
Drew Pearson
Toby Harrah
Eddie Robinson
Joe Bob Isabell

This is GREAT news, Leon! For a multitude of reasons, going to the National has only worked out for me once, and this year won't work out either. I am very excited to have this show so relatively close to home! I haven't been to a good show since the 2015 National.

Glad to hear of the excitement. This can be a SW National, guaranteed to be ran better than whatever the National committee is doing these days..We have ways of making more room if we run out of table space too!! What a novel idea. Also, there is about to be a minor board aesthetics change with an ad. More to see very soon.

Default Table size?

Hi Leon, what size are the tables? Some of the shows where I set up have 6'x2 1/2', most have 8'x3', and one has 10' x 3'.

Thanks, and good luck with your show! Rick

Leon, I won't know for sure if I can do this show because I have been having a problem with my knees. If I get the all clear I would like to do this show. Is there enough room in back of the main tables for a table I bring to set extra cards on?

The three spots by the autograph area look pretty good.

Plenty of room and plenty of seating!! WE have all the tables you would need and I doubt we could allow more tables to be brought in because we have a layout we will try to stay on course with.
We would love to have any member set up with us, of course. WE need more vintage .

My stuff is mostly 1953 to 1971 Topps and Bowman. Kind of a mixed bag with some lower grade and some nice stuff. A few graded cards as well. Some football.

I will be there for sure, Leon. Not as a dealer, but as a buyer like always. I’ve been waiting (salivating) for a kick ass show to show up in Texas. In fact, I emailed SGC several weeks ago to inquire about their Texas schedule for 2019, explaining that I have about 50 cards I would rather hand to a human being for grading as opposed to shipping (1915 CJ Cobb, ‘41 Play Ball DiMaggio, a ‘53 topps Mantle that was discussed in another thread that my father left me and had owned since childhood yet somehow came back EVID-TRM by PSA, among others). And, oddly enough, Brian responded they unfortunately had no plans to visit Texas in 2019. So glad to hear that has changed. I will definitely be there!!

Default RMY Auctions - Free On Site Photograph Evaluation at The Texas Card Show

RMY Auctions will be taking consignments and doing free photograph evaluations on site at the show!! No strings attached. It is great to have Rhys and team on board. I am sure there will be a few, or more collectors (and others) taking advantage of their services.

Glad to have you on board. Kyle and I are going to meet with the Mayor and Economic Council of Frisco in a little while as they have indicated they want to help us too. Also, Dan Mckee has just taken a few tables for the show. We will definitely have some good vintage at at least a few tables..... It is great to have Danny on board. Over half the tables have been sold in the first 4 days. We expect to sell quite a few more (from people who have indicated they want tables but haven't chosen them yet) in the next few days. We are excited to bring a fresh, larger, CARD show to this area. Some dealers have indicated they are fed up with the National (I am one of them).....

I'm not a big contributor on these boards, but I'm a long time lurker/infrequent poster. I'm super excited for this show. I even marked it in the calendar. As others have said, I also have some stuff for grading/authentication and while others mail stuff off all the time, I've never been comfortable with that.

I have cancelled my DFW area scheduled show for that weekend (as Kyle and I had discussed when I told him he could take the dates if those were the only ones that worked) and have removed the listings from Beckett and SCD. I'll get the word out to my mailing list as well

Rich, that is very nice of you to do this. Too often promoters are so territorial that they refuse to cooperate and it winds up hurting both shows. Kudos!

Thanks for the nice words

I'd probably feel different if I had already paid or had to pay for the venue but thankfully when I can give notice there is no money out of my pocket.

Since there was no financial issue with the cancellation I did what was best for the DFW Collecting Community instead of what was best for me.

Any show that brings in Dangerous Danny McKee ( ) means business.

Thanks Rich, Kyle and I appreciate it. It is shaping up to be a great show coming to North Texas. I hear another cowboy is coming to town too!!

Yes, sir. It's a special occasion when Cy gets out his ten gallon. There will be a lot more announcements soon as there are a multitude of things being worked on. I am happy to say that renowned Michigan based dealer, Bryan Dec Vintage Sports (hey Bryan), will be set up at the show with us. Always good to have more vintage everything.

National has approximately 500 dealer booths which is approximately 1250-1500 tables.

White Plains -- it depends on the show. The East Coast National -- the big one -- has both upstairs and downstairs and IIRC it totals about 400-500 tables

Default Number of booths at the National

I believe I counted the booths correctly from the floor plan. If it is not correct it is very close.

471 10 X 15 booths (each booth has two 8 foot tables and one 6 foot table)

40 10 X 10 booths (each booth has two 8 foot tables or one 8 foot and one 6 foot, depending if the dealer wants to have a wider space to get in an out of the booth.

Total number of tables approaching 1500 with about 2/3 of them 8 foot tables.

Also dealers who get two booths can fit an additional four or six foot table in their display depending how much they wish to push the boundries of their booth space.

Kyle and I went to Tri Star in Houston yesterday. It is a well run show and it was nice to see a lot of friends and other hobbyists there. The hobby is apparently doing fine. With the 12 dollar parking and 15 dollar entry it wasn't a very cheap date but it is what it is. Our show admission won't be that much and we are shooting for free parking. WE are supposed to go walk the venue once more, as we need to visualize some more things, and sign the final contract next week. There is a lot of excitement around our event and we hope (and will make sure) it only gets more in the following days leading to the event.This said we are hoping for a card show with great signers and not the other way around, which seems to be how a lot of shows have gone. So far the expected signers are- (and we are working on many more).

1977 Cowboys champs:

Mel Renfro HOF and Cowboys Ring of Honor

Drew Pearson
Billy Joe DuPree

Bump Wills Rangers

Lincoln Coleman 1993 Cowboys champs

Abner Haynes - 1960 AFL Player and Rookie of the Year

.
There are only around 40 tables left to sell after approximately 3 weeks. We expect to be sold out well before the event. Get your tables now .

I will try to make it. I am expecting to be in McKinney for a wedding the 27th, tagging it at the end of a planned business trip. So good timing for me.

A friendly bump to say we are making more headway and have some more signers in the wings. Once they give the final ok that they will be there we will announce it. One of the ex- Major Leaguers is 98 yrs old and sounds great on the phone. He doesn't do email.
STill some tables for those that want to come set up with us!!

A few quick updates. Unfortunately Lelands won't be able to attend the show due to some scheduling issues. We are hopeful they can make it next time. The list of autograph guests is updated in the first post. There are still some tables left and I am hopeful some vintage guys will take them. They will be sold out at the end, we are quite confident.

Panini is on board for the show and will be there giving out some free things to show attendees. Only 20 tables left and hopefully some of our vintage members will pick them up. We know they will all be sold out it is just a matter of who gets them. Hopefully everyone will attend that can!! There will be dealers and vendors that never get to this area. And if anyone has anything they are considering consigning there will be several national auction houses to choose from.

I was in Austin last week and had a nice time at the Card Traders of Austin store. Maybe they'd want to have a table; give them a call and check. Really nice selection of vintage cards and a bunch of additional ones in the store room. Did COMC get a table? Would love to see them out there at the show.

I'll have a couple tables of vintage setup. This will be my first show in Texas. Looking forward to it!

While there will definitely be quite a few tables with nice, newer cards and I know of a few dealers with high end new wax, I am happy to say there should be more vintage at this show than any one in a long time around here. We also just added Baggers Auctions and Sportscards to the list of dealers setting up. We couldn't be happier to have Dave and team joining us.
This is a a show that will be worth the drive!! (as I like to say)

ps...COMC hasn't reserved a spot but has been invited.

My plan is to drive up that Saturday morning and spend the afternoon at the show. Hope to meet Leon and some other Net54-ers and say 'Hi!'. Looking forward to the show.

Less than 3 weeks to go, friendly bump. Hope to see a lot of members come out. The tables are essentially sold out though there might be 2 left.

ih8ca from blowout forums sells a lot of graded cards and he just told me he'll be there. He recently sent his high grade set breaks of 1968 Topps and 1955 Bowman to COMC and said he sold most of them within days at full VCP (with many even selling through eBay with their upcharge).

Correction: he has to sell a high dollar Mantle in person at the Boston show and will not be there next weekend. I am still planning to be there to meet some of you.
