Skinsfan,

I just got back. The show was jumping. Didn't see much raw football but that doesn't mean much
since I spent most my time looking for red mans and my 51 Bowman Eagles I need.

I spent time at the Psa and Sgc booths. Going back tomorrow to pick up some cards.

Psa will not be grading any tall boys at the show.

Have fun.

Skins fans aren't too bad. After all you gave us B. Mitchell and James Thrash for nothing. And you
took Jeremiah Trottier from us. Anyhow, it's Giants and Cowboy fans we hate the most!

Skinsfans,

Walk Past Rosen and walk all the way to the back....then turn left.....PK Cards has a corner table on the left side as you are walking probably 2 aisles up

Spent most of the evening glued to Set-Builders table (Joe Tauriello or Norty on the forum).
What a blast! I found probably 300 PSA 8 or better quality 71's, 63's and 64's for some great prices!

At one point during the evening, sitting around the tables, going through binders were Steve Peckovich, Keith Abrams, myself, Qualitycards(Jay Wolt), EJGuru(Eric), SJJS28(Steve), Chet Woods and Brian Simon (The Dogs 74 Set and Dakota on the forum). There were probably others there that I would recognize, but they kept quiet (not that I really blame them around this bunch!) I heard that I missed (Davalillo) Jim who was there as well.

I also picked up a couple hundred bucks worth from T&S cards two rows away from Set Builders. Very similar setup with dozens of binders, and you had to dig a little harder to find NM-MT, but a ton of stuff to go through!

All in all, a very enjoyable and productive evening!

Frank,

Sorry I missed you and some others I would have liked to meet. I was down at Ft. W from 12 30PM to about 7 30PM. In 7 hours I was able to do some damage to a number of my sets. While I spent most of my time talking to all of the national dealers who were there, Joe Orlando and Steve Rocchi(yes I spoke with Steve Rocchi, Danny and others) I did meet Jeff of Luxury Wines fame, Mike Rakosi(the king of vintage basketball who is someday soon going to coax my last vintage bball 9s out of me), my good friend Keith Abrams and Jay Wolt who continues to help me on my newer sets.
The biggest buzz at the show was that a purchase of sgc or maybe its just sgc's card grading division is imminent by GAI--Rocchi confirmed this. What this means I will leave for othersn to figure out but I think it is significant.
GAI had a presence at dealer tables but my perception was that it was not materially bigger than at past shows--perhaps about the same as sgc but sgc was skewed toward newer cards and lesser known dealers.
Among the dealers who had impressive displays of cards were Triple sSs, Superior, Brian Drent, Wayne of Shoebox cards(I am going to forgive him for selling GAI cards and do business with him again),
VSI,and Natex. There were other well known national de4alers there who did not have a big display including Dave Forman, Bill Goodwin andLouis Bollman(no longer with Mastronet). Sports Cards Plus had the single most impressive item there with a complete 1968 Topps Test basketball set -all psa graded for I think $23,500.

Others were mainly displaying their auction material--Andy Madec, Greg Bussineau.
Mr. Mint was there as usual and looking pretty lonely as he carefully watched every person who entered and exited.

As far as my sets, I was able to finish 1954 Bowman Football in 8 or better thanks to my friend Lee Iskowicz who is now on his own in Florida after a brief stint with Dave Forman. I also am one card away now on 1959 Topps Football 175 8s or better and one psa 7 left.

Lastly, in case people think large collectors, submitters, dealers get favors from psa, I gave Joe Orlando another 2400 cards to grade and a 1953 Bowman Color Pee Wee Reese SBC 98(gem mint) that I wanted to crossover to a psa 9 or 10. I also told Joe it was important to me. It was indicated as an 8 and would not cross.

Good luck to all--pls. don't forget me on my sets.

Davalillo(Jim)

I went Friday Night got to see EJ GURU (Eric) as he found a well centerd 68 Topps... Also got to meet Davillio (Jim) and had a nice conversation with him... Sorry I did not get to meet several other Board members... But it was nice putting faces to 2 other people on the board..... At the show itself found some nice raw 1974 Topps(including a very nice looking GAry Nolan) , 69 Decals and some 64 Topps Giants. Also picked up the last 2 36 Goudey's to finnish another mid grade set...

Submitted over 200 cards to PSA a lot of mid grade Goudey's and Diamond Stars and some very nice 63-64 PArkhurst Hockey I picked up recently.

So all in all a pretty good show... Wish I could go back today or tommorow but my wife's PArole fees were way too high for me to pay for more than one day....

I was there today, finally got to meet Eric and Tony - great guys! I also learned some valuble buying lessons from Tony Aconte

Yo E - I did pick up that Mays by the way.

It was a great show. I have to concur with some of the posts - GAI GAI GAI. Definitely a strong prescence there and more and more GAI cards are available. I even submitted my first few and will do some more. The "Examplar" service they offer seems to be the way I want to go.

I went to the show Saturday. Worked on getting some elusive short prints for my 2003 Topps heritage master set, submitted a bunch of 79 topps to PSA for 35 day turnaround...and picked up a very nice PSA 6 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax from Shoeless Joes for $425.00 (under SMR by about 5%). Very nice to deal with Shoeless Joes.

The show was fairly crowded, more so than the other 5 or 6 I've been too at Fort Washington.

I agree 110%.

Tony, I picked up some 67 PSA 8's, one was a NICE Mays. I am going back tomorrow to pick up some GAI Pre-grades.

Going back? I know there is a Dimaond Star with your name on it

I concur. Besides the occasional oversized or undersized inserts, SGC has the most aesthetically pleasing holders around. In fact, I am going to keep my existing SGC card in their current holders even if GAI decides to scrap the SGC holders!
