in 2010, it was. I blew half of my budget just to get the packs, and it paid off

Coming down from North Jersey. Since it is the summer, I get paid per diem so I will only take Friday off. Come back Sunday night....

Just to answer some random questions:

1) Backpacks are good. If you have a lot, suitcases are common.

2) There are huge empty areas where you can sit down and trade your cards. Also, if you get the VIP package, I think you are allowed to use the VIP room. If not, there are places INSIDE the building but OUTSIDE of the main hall with tables and chairs. The convention is HUGE.

3) Wrapper redemptions are usually every day, but most people that are able to not work, get their fill the first few days. Depending on how Topps and UD do their redemptions this year, they put a limit and only did it at certain times. Panini was pretty much open until they ran out. This is speaking from the 2010 National. If someone that went to the 2011 National or a smaller show inbetween, things have probably changed.

4) BO does promotional stuff all the time. Last time they gave out tickets to the O's game as part of the VIP package. They also have good giveaways during the show. Some of the other retailers will be there, but no one does the show the way BO does. They work the masses.

5) For outsiders, Baltimore is not the safest city. So be careful and lock your cars. Not trying to scare you, but I'm just sayin. Don't be naive.

It's going to be so much fun guys...don't miss it!

Based on previous years bring your Topps Series 2 Unopened Packs (not wrappers, unopened packs) with you to take advantage of the Topps Promotions because these will be sold at a high price at the show $2 or more per pack. I am wondering if they will create a Bryce Harper Topps Heritage Card #/999 like they did the Strasburg two years back.

Eat a big meal before you get to the Convention Center because the food is terrible and it is expensive. There is a Potbelly Sub Shop a couple of blocks from the Convention Center.

Bring your camera. You will see some unbelievable collectibles.
Please drop me a PM if you have any of the following for sale: Topps Baseball 1953-1967
