Default What sells at shows?

I have decided to be the one behind the table at some upcoming shows and was wondering what have people had luck selling?

I live in Massachusetts so I would assume local stuff sells well. Can I charge higher for them, since there is more demand?

What value stuff sells? Ive heard $1 bins do well, but do $100+ cards sell too?

What about the big guys? Lebron, Kobe, Legends, Durant, I would think they sell well no matter where.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Depends on which city/which market. In Erie, it's mostly the $1-$15 jerseys an auto's. some $100+ autos sell but that's only if I'm there to buy lol

Bring base cards........Especially Bowman (baseball) prospects.........Have them sorted by team (or player if well known), and put them at 15 cents each or 10 for $1, 25 for $2, etc.....

High end cards, bring them, but don't let all the people crowd around the base boxes and your high end are covered up. Worst that can happen is they don't sell and you bring them home.
