Default Whens the next big card show in Chi-town?

Im talking about either the sun times show or national show. Went to one last summer with the family and had a blast.

A date would be fine, thanks.

Basically think of a yard sale or flee market but on the largest of scales for the midwest. Your probably looking at over 1000 dealers who for the most part want to move their stuff. Big part is that they're also willing to buy, so if you've got something to sell its a great time to sell it....but at the same time go with cash and theres deals to be found!

The National was in Chicago this year and (as stated before) should be back in a few years. The only other local shows worth attending are the Sun Times Spring and Fall show, which (I think) are in March and November every year at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. The other shows I've attended in Chicago have been little more than 10-20 tables with little selection and the same shady cast of characters.

I was at the national in the summer last year, and is was pretty nice. Blowout was there as well as other dealers. I picked up 3 boxes of 2007 bowman chrome baseball and did REALLY well on them
