Default 2011 National

My son and I will be heading to the National for the first time. My son is 9 and has been collecting for about 2 years. We are very excited to visit your booth and hang out and open some boxes. See you in Chicago!!

I'm definitely going to try and make it. I've never been to it before. Can attendees bring stuff to try and sell or have to purchase a booth or something?

Question for you seasoned National attendees. I have never been to a National before, still kicking myself for not going when it was in Cleveland..... anyways was thinking of driving up for one day, but my question is: Right now I am only collecting 09-10 Contenders basketball and working on a huge massive set, everything except the 1/1 championship tickets. For those that have been before are the chances good that I will be able to find quite a few of these cards that I need? I only need some paralleled inserts and auto inserts about 100 cards total.

Would really like to attend but I'm having doubts with the cost it would be to drive there and back for one day. I know I am sounding like a whiner, but since I have never been I was looking for some insight. Any help is appreciated. You could post here or just pm me, so I don't clog up this thread with my "issues"

Default National Trip

I am headed to the National and I am bringing my family. My 4 year old should have a blast. Long time customer and I have had some serious pulls from my boxes from Blowout. Can't wait to see Blowout Cards at the National.

Sunday is the best day for wax, worst day for singles.

amark You are free to bring anything that you want to trade or sell.

Shane there are over 1,000 tables. I don't care what you collect , want, or don't want you will find it there. Good Luck to everyone that attends. Will be there a couple days by myself & taking my son at least 1 day also.

We should pick a late afternoon / night and meet at shoeless joe's sport bar (right around the corner from the convention), rip open some boxes and do some trading. Maybe Thursday

I'm sure you'll find some as well as decent prices on the sealed wax. Might be spending all day looking through the misc. boxes to find them..but that could also be to your benefit. That being said IMHO if your going on a limited project...effort and funds might be best spent on singles already swimming in the big pond.

Thats like saying you should only be able to get Packers "super bowl champions" Memorabilia in dallas on Super Bowl Sunday!

Its the biggest event in our hobby and alot of people cant stop their lives and jobs (ME INCLUDED AS A MILITARY MAN) to go so we are looking for a small peice of the action!
