Default "The Philly Show" at Valley Forge Casino March 3-5th Announcement

I'd like to announce to everyone that David Hunt and I have reached an agreement for my purchase of Philadelphia Sports Collectors Show, "The Philly Show", now located at The Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia P.A. I am very excited to reach out to the hobby and re-introduce this legendary show that began in 1975.

My role, along with majority ownership, will also be full management of the show. David will be staying on as a minority owner. The rest of the shows support team will be staying on in their familiar roles, with the exception of Cheryl. Cheryl will be helping transition us through the March show and will resume her position with Hunt Auctions for all future shows.

Many of you have voiced concerns about certain aspects of the show in recent years. I can assure you, that I am dedicated to addressing your concerns very quickly in order to improve the show for all involved. I am asking you all to please come out and support this great show. In return, I am offering FREE admission on Friday March 3rd to any Net54 member. I am also offering 50% off admission for Saturday and Sunday. Please just print off this email and bring it with you. I would like to hear from you, feel free to send me a direct message or just post a reply on this board and I will be sure to monitor it and reply.

There will be many new/old dealers returning for the March show, so I encourage you to please come and take a look with an open mind and a fresh set of eyes. There will be many new changes coming that I think will all be for the betterment of the show, most of them will be rolled out by the September show. I will be sure to share more details and keep everyone updated about them in the near future.

I am truly passionate about seeing this iconic show succeed. I do not want to see this great hobby relegated to the likes of eBay and Paypal. This hobby is more than just the value of cardboard, it's about the people and it's very hard to enjoy it sitting behind a keyboard. There are many great people who have said YES to supporting this show and I want to thank them here. So please come out March 3rd-5th and say hello again to one of the best
vintage card shows on the East Coast!

There are still a limited amount of booths available, if you are interested in setting up please reach out to me directly. The floor plan can be found on the website at www.phillyshow.com.

If you plan on coming to the show, or setting up again, please post here on the board and let everyone know. Also please find me , I'd like to meet with you and say hello.

Best Regards,

Joe Drelich

All I can say is that the reason I tried my hand at promoting a show was because of various issues I had with promoters with whom I was working, as a dealer. I can honestly say that Joe was pretty much the example I was shooting for in terms of responsiveness, honesty, and actually promoting a show instead of trusting that inertia would keep it running. I couldn't be more excited to be doing yet another Joe Drelich show!

Hello Joe,

I was excited to hear of this transition when I first heard rumor of it last month. One of the big things that has irritated many dealers/collectors about the show has been the rule below taken directly from the dealer rules posted on the phillyshow website. Could you provide your feedback and advise if you will be rescinding this rule or keeping it in force?

26. Any dealer who wishes to exhibit at the Philly Show may not exhibit at competing sports show with (50) miles of the Valley Forge venue
within (60) days of a Philly Show date. (NOTE: Per dealer inquiries, this policy applies to major sports convention shows only. Small ‘mall’
shows and dealer ‘shop’ appearance shows are not applicable).


Thanks
DJ

I drove down to the last show and really liked it. Probably because buying cards, playing card games at a casino, and drinking a few Coronas pretty much covers my current vices. One stop shopping.

Seriously, I was really happy with the amount of vintage stuff. Probably better than the most recent White Plains shows I've gone to.

I will let Joe answer that (hi Joe) but I addressed that with him yesterday on the phone. I was happy with the response (and unhappy with that rule).

Congratulations Joe! Looking forward to seeing you at the show.

Any chance you can bring Jayson Werth in to sign at one of the future shows?

I'll be back in March thanks to Joe's involvement. I've known Joe for god knows how long now and have complete confidence that he will try his hardest to run a successful show, and that is all we can hope for from a promoter. Looking forward to many future shows as well.
