Default Lame in name only

It appears that Brian forgot the little accent over the 'e', as he obviously meant that the Hunt Auction celebration of the Pirates was much like golden lame fabric, a highly complimentary commentary indeed.

Lame is the word.

To elaborate, I went to David L. Lawrence Convention Center today hoping that the show would be like last year's show where there were a couple aisles of dealers.

Nope.

I arrived and outside of Hunt Auctions and Spence there were three dealers. Two years ago when Hunt had the show they advertised the show would have "the leading dealers in the area" and when I arrived there were two dealers. Both then as in now absolutely no pre-War and this year barely anything vintage. I know the idea is to sell the autographs, but having more dealers with more variety would not have hurt. Last year I purchased an autographed 1941 Play Ball of Bill Dickey, a SGC 55 VG-EX+ 4.5 1933 George C. Miller of Gehringer and a 1909 Tri fold postcard of the Pirates. That was a good show.

Maybe the leading dealers came in 1st and 2nd place in a 2 dealer race so they were in fact leading? We always need to look at the bright side.

This reminds me of how TASS reported one of the old USA-USSR dual track meets during the Cold War

"The USSR finished in second in an international field while the USA finished next to last."
