Organizers have been asked about a return of the National to the West Coast. For the last several years we have repeatedly spoken to authorities in Anaheim, site of the most successful National ever in 1991 and also the site of the National in 1996, 2000 and 2006. Similar to the situation in Baltimore, the Convention Center has a rigid policy which will not allow them to guarantee dates to us. Despite our past history, numerous meetings, phone calls and letters, Anaheim officials have been unable to provide the National with dates far enough in advance to allow adequate preparation and planning for the event. We will continue to look for a suitable West Coast site.

I've been campaigning for a show in Denver. The National officials can't get an agreement from the Anaheim Convention center. Denver is awesome, no humidity, great light rail transportation, the Rockies.

Yeah I saw his price tag. Very steep and rare when Steiner's is cheaper. I personally just want to pursue the photo op since I already have his auto in my PC.

They should set aside a bunch of tables so collectors like us could trade. So many people come with backpacks with stuff to trade and there is not really anywhere to do it except for a few tables by the food stand which are usually taken. Its not like there is no room, the place is the biggest room I'v ever seen in my life. You could fit a few battle ships in there.

I'm definitely going! Its just a quick metro ride from Owings Mills for me! In fact, I should make some money by renting out some rooms in my house to go spend it at the National haha!
