I have been and there is a fair amount of pre-war offered. I don't know if they still have it (maybe not in winter, anyway), but they usually have a flea market outside at the same time that often has some interesting stuff. Anyway, from what I remember, you can expect 5 or so dealers to have a pretty good selection of pre-war (mostly t206) and then a few dealers here or there that have small stashes of pre-war. Last time I was there I picked up a t206 Cobb Bat on in good condition for $400 and a handful of other t206's at decent prices. If you are expectecting anything much rarer than t206 in pre-war, you will probably not find it at this show. Larrie Dean usually sets up at this show and has many pretty nice t206's for sale at reasonable prices.

There are usually a good amount of autograph dealers at this show and even an autograph guest sometimes, so if you are looking for something like that, this show should be right up your alley. Also, post-war is more abundant at this show than pre-war (as is at most shows); if you like 1950-1970 cards, there are quite a few of dealers.

Default Raleigh Show

Yes, the Raleigh show is this weekend...December 14-16. Among my more recently acquired Pre-war material are US Caramels, Goudeys and Batter-ups. Stop by my tables and say hello. Thanks Lee for the nice comment! Larrie

Heading out there on Sat. There are a couple of pre-war sellers. Lots of newer shiny stuff there though. The paperboy will have his loupe attached to his head.

Yep...he is a trip. That loupe couldn't help him with that fake Jordan rookie he was selling though.
