This was my last show for 30 years- I set up and sold off my collection, and took a break until 1999.

This is truly awesome I wish I had a camera in the 90s when I was a kid at card shows.

Really cool stuff. I went to shows in the baltimore/washington d.c area at that time and used to go to a card store called 'house of cards'

That's me at 21 years old on the right in the first photo standing next to Gavin Riley. Frank Barning of Baseball Hobby News wanted a picture of any of his staff writers that were in attendance to pose together.

It was a great show- I got an E135 of Joe Jackson from John Spalding for $25.00 and a lot of 80 1967 Kabaya-Leaf Japanese baseball from Hall's Nostalgia for $24.00 amongst other cards.

Wow, Jeff - $24 for a lot of 80 Kabaya-Leaf cards. That was a fantastic buy! Especially now when one considers that finding a non-graded K-L is tough on eBay....

Default 1980 National Convention

This is an amazing and historic post..I just noticed that I signed the national convention brochure cover when I was 18 years old, I am now 55 and can actually read my script signature name back then, many hobby long timers on the cover of that newspaper, now I scribble and write like a doctor! I do still have my name tag and badge!
Great Show, Great Memories, Great Hobby!

As the National will be in my hometown in 2018, I have between now and then to track down an "I BUY BASEBALL CARDS" cap.

Oh, and Larry, I still want that R311 Gehringer if it ever turns up

Jake, you are remembering Bill Huggins' card shop, which is still in existence today in Silver Spring, MD. Of course, Bill is better known in the hobby these days for Huggins & Scott Auctions.

Great stuff David thank you for sharing. I attended the 2nd show in Plymouth the following year as a 13 yr old - please post what you have on that show as well.
