If you are looking at the specials for opening wax, what I did last year was I went straight to the blowout booth and they will have the flyers for every special and they had almost all of them grouped together so it was easy. They were very helpful at answering questions. Then I went to the companies that the specials got my attention and had them confirm that I understood the details correctly and then went back to BO and bought the wax. My favorite last year was the press pass because I was in love with getting the Tebow promo. Panini had a different product every hour that they did box/pack wars for prizes, but someone else will have to explain this because I didn't participate in that but it was extremely busy.

I won't be there this year, but just a word of advice if this is your first time. PLAN AHEAD! There is so much going on, you'll be surprised at how fast time flies. If you plan to just open wax, you can get most of your stuff from Blowout's booth. They had the best prices last year and they also do various activities to make things fun. Then there's the wrapper redemption stuff. Panini's is alot of fun because you just rip a ton of packs and they give you a ton of redemptions. You can get some really nice stuff from them on top of the cards you pull.

I don't know how UD is doing it this year, but they spread theirs out last year and limited how many redemptions you can get.

Topps is the worst in terms of planning and chances of getting something. Because they are only giving out a limited number of redemptions, you'll have to make sure you are in the right place at the right time to get in line for their redemptions.

On top of that, there is just so much to do. As one person already said, it's like the Disney for card collectors. Most fun I've had in a long time. I'm sad I can't make it to Chicago this year...but I'll be there next year in Baltimore!

I am going Wednesday night. I have a HUGE lot of stuff I am taking to D & A. Wish Blowout bought more random items and not just cases. I hate dealing with D & A but for a multi thousand dollar deal it is a must to have money to spend at show.

We've pretty much stuck to a policy of purchasing just Factory sealed cases. This way we can inspect them and know what we are selling to our customers. I'm sure many of you agree that the integrity of the boxes are most important when you purchase from us and thats something you can never guarantee when your buying loose boxes out there. There have been exceptions over the years. We do get offered alot of Loose Box deals...maybe it's something we should consider if our members want a wider variety without concern of where the boxes originated...Your requests have alot to do with what we purchase. Like any successful business, we listen to our customers and change with their needs.

One of the goals that I have for the National is to ask many of you what you like and dislike about our business and our forums. Rather than posting all over this thread, I'd like to speak to many of you at the show and get your opinions on how we can improve on the community we have here and area's of our business. We would love to hear your comments in person at the show.

Thanks
Chris

Chris,
I completely understand. I guess the one good thing about me selling to D & A is that I can spend the money I get with you guys!!
