Chicago - I think i saw one to be honest. Dont remember where though. If I spot it tomorrow, I'll make sure to get contact info.

peter - Yes checked out the COMC booth a little bit and will be there tomorrow for an hour or so. Might try and stream it, but i need to see what COMC has for power availability (they're running lots of electronics). Plan on swinging by there with my little video tour of the national I'll do in the morning.

Sorry.. IMHO most at "blowout" are electronically challanged. I think Pat has a good nitch. But in all honesty, they've got at best 6 people (can't use guys due to it being a diverse workforce) and are very busy.

I've suggested a few ideas, but frankly I'm not on the payroll (FYI mods are not paid, nor do we honestly get any regular discounts) and this is my/our vacation. I've done a few different things trying to help give guys the idea of what this looks like, and without a few verbal recaps, I've yet to see anyone else stepping up with any pictures or video clips (not trying to be rude, nor do I see your post as offensive or attacking, but given the info I've provided to this point, from what I'm reading and intreperting its almost counter productive). I do realize this is the National, and the grand daddy of card shows, and not everyone can attend (had it not been for the group break, given my current finaces, I almost opted not to come, but had made the hotel reservations, plans, etc, and wanted the vacation bad enough that I basically said screw it, and will deal with the consequences later (FYI, I realize the group break didnt work out as well as I had planned..but for anyone who hasnt put much those into this, try doing one 5+ hours from home...I needed my laptop + video capabilities (also brought my camcorder as the almighty backup plan, then needed to figure out some type of internet capabilities to broadcast this (while honestly doing my best to keep everyone informed), then the scanning, and recaps). To be honest, I think I brought enough supplies to even mail from the National, but dont want to risk leaving everything with hotel staff. And this is barely the start of it. I had some issues and it almost seems like the world ended. I know and fully understand and accept the responsibilities of the scope of this break, but man what a PITA, as I lost a good portion of Friday trying to get things done for the break. Without blowouts help (Pat brought a router), none of this would even be possible, and given how poorly the hotel intenet works, I still wouldnt have videos loaded!

That being said and I feel semi better (please nobody take any offense to this), if anyone is directly offended, I'm very sorry. This is probably the 1st time in 6+ years on this forum (and its assorted morphs), I've ever said anything like this. I actually noticed that I do not have any photos from the National yet and will work on that tomorrow as well (as I want some to bring home and show my family how nutty I am actually am for this hobby). I do have these from our hotel room if you guys want a good laugh. This was what things looked like prior to us starting our Friday night breaks

Here's a money shot for Panini!

If you think thats bad..guess I really should of taken a picture of my truck. I picked up 200,000 sleeves while in Cleveland (FYI..thats 20 cases)...oh the fun I now get to have! I think my new name might be king 07 Topps Retail. If the blaster boxes werent enough...I picked up another 6 cases (adding to the 4 I have to now make 10) of 07 Topps FB....humm, I've got what 6 weeks to the season starts???

Trying to work on getting the National video ready. Hope to have it posted tonight.
