Default Where / When are the best Pre - War shows

Since we are spread out all over the country... Can you tell me what what are the best pre war shows and where. One you should attend at least once. Of course the National would be in there.
I have noticed the Beckett and SCD do not list all the card shows running. Thanks

Fort Washington

I think that the venue is going to be closing down but the show will be moving to a new location.

in my opinion. Scattered fragments of lower grade pre-war are out there but for the most part there is "us",the board members who hoard everything and recyle it among ourselves. Even at shows everyone is looking to buy so they can put the cards on their websites marked up or classify spam on chat boards and then e-bay. Some people bring decent stuff to shows but even the ones who have nice cards to sell or trade don't need a table at a show to do so. They walk around with haliburton breifcases and show their wares to fellow collectors they banter on chat boards for years!

Shameless plug for one of the best prewar card tables at any show(although we only do 1, the National!)

We promise to have lots of great material again this year.

The National is still a great venue for collectors. I find a heck of a lot of stuff I need every time. Ebay too is a great venue. I've added stuff to my collection that I've wanted for years thru ebay.

Fort Washington without a doubt. I have been to 4 Nationals and Fort Washington has better pre war material. I hope the new venue keeps the same atmosphere. If you have never gone to this show it is definitely worth the trip. It reminds me of the the shows in the late 70,s and early 80,s. Just remember to pass by Mr. Mint who always has the front table.

Move the Ft. Washington show farther WEST so other can enjoy it.

I was trying to figure out some way to GET to the national. Being in seattle makes it almost impossible to find any good card shows let alone prewar showa, any west coasters have recommendations? I'm willing to drive a couple hundres miles (oregon and cali would be fine) but I would like a chance to find some great cards and NOT have to put up with people overcharging (99 dollar BIN for very poor common T205) on ebay...
