$5 reward, to known members, who can get IMac7065 to hold a sign reading "jlzinck is my hero"

He can cover his face with the sign so that there is no "personal information" seen by other members

I will probably look for some singles but I may buy a case or two the last day I am there. To me, busting boxes is the funnest part of the hobby no matter the risk. I just wouldn't feel right if I did not bust some while I was there. I think the last time the National was in Chicago I busted 50-60 boxes of different 90's basketball products.........good times

Does anyone know if they are limiting how many Bowman Platinum sets you can get from Topps for their wrapper redemption?

it's 1 per time in line and the line fills up quick, but I would think you could stand in line each day

I will probably bust a case or two but I don't really want to travel with a bunch of cards so it will be something that has 1-4 card boxes like Prospect Rush.

But other than that, high end singles. Considering upgrading my 33 Goudey Ruth to a 5 or higher depending on what else I find. High end graded rookie autos and a few other things. I'd like to hunt down some of my harder to find Hershiser items but I don't really feel like digging through stuff all day.

Check out table #903 Columbia City Collectibles/Mike Mosier usually has some pretty tough odd stuff.
