Default Who is going to Cooperstown?

The calendar hitting July means its induction weekend month! I go every year and hit the card show in town. I helped my non-collecting friends pick up a couple low grade Ted Williams cards at very reasonable prices last year. My other buddy was able to pick up a Mantle, Aaron, and Mays to fill some gaps in.

Looking to pick up a few things (nothing in mind) as well as getting my Rod Carew RC signed!

Yes -- Looking forward to it and hoping to stop by the VFW show a time or five throughout the weekend as time permits. Always love seeing old collecting friends at that show.

I'll be there, but I didn't know there was a card show. Can someone provide more information on the card show?

I'll be staying at an extended family member's lake house and making the 1.5 hr drive in and out on both Saturday & Sunday.

Ironically enough, I'm from the Akron, OH, area, and come home from this trip only to be met with the National.

It's at the VFW which is on the opposite side of the street from the actual hall. It is actually really close to the hall. If the temps are high it gets hot in there. There is very little room to navigate which can be a pain. Last year guys were willing to wheel and deal and I picked up some 50's Hall of Fame cards for what I'd call eBay prices. Last year temps were mild so it was pretty good. Looks like the show is Fri/Sat from a google search. There is also a live auction there. I think I went one year with my ex-wife. Now that I go with my buddies we drink way too much to even think about going to a live auction. I want to say that is Saturday evening but I'm not 100% certain. I haven't gone to that in 15 years I think.

When we are talking show there may be 20 dealers or so. Don't expect 100 dealers at the show. I know TedZ has setup there. He probably can give better info than me.

Thank you for the information Stephen. I'll be there on Saturday. Is there much Pre-War?

I think a few of dealers have some prewar stuff - yes. I am not sure if TedZ will be there, but he would obviously have some stuff. He had to miss last year because the National and Induction Weekend lined up at the same time. I do mostly 50's-60's hall of famers with very little prewar mixed in so I have tunnel vision. My monster number is in the mere teens!

Have you been to Cooperstown? There are tons of shops there as well so no shortage of cards. Some shops will wheel and deal even though you have a retail type feel. The show prices are best though.

Also there are tons of guys who sign - if you are into that. The MAB show has the majority and JackBerke has a bunch too. Also 7th inning stretch and Safe at Home will have a few and then some randoms.

One more thing to note -

If you are going to be there starting Saturday then the HOF Museum is not even worth going in. They close early so after the parade the HOFers have the place to themselves for a couple of hours.

I have a membership so I can go in and out as I please but the amount of people packed into the building makes it almost impossible to enjoy anything. It's much better going on Thursday or Friday morning that weekend. I have gone there Sunday during the ceremony (I don't go to the ceremony) and its pretty empty there for obvious reasons.

If you've never been to the museum and your only option is Saturday then by all means go in. But it's not the best experience on that particular day.

Do they offer a list of who will be signing? Or is that done by the individual shop?
