I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question, but do the dealers accept cash, credit, and checks? I have never been to a show like this and I'm not sure how it works. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

It will vary dealer to dealer, but most will accept credit or cash, I wouldn't expect many to accept check. I would try to bring as much cash as possible if you are not primarily buying wax. About any good wax dealer will accept cards, but some will add tax on if you pay with a card rather than cash.

Have a great time at the show!

Thanks for the info. The main reason I asked was because I am hoping to find some rare Detroit Tigers autographs and I don't like carrying that much cash on me. I might bring all 3, but bring a lot of cash just in case they don't take the other two.

Bring as much cash as you can, prices will be better.

All vendors are required to charge Rosemont's sales tax (likely over 10%) on any credit card transactions. A possible way to cheat the system is to use PayPal with your phone if the vendor agree's to do so and is capable of confirming the payment.

Not really, it's a room full of tables and chairs that you can just chill at. Just like the food court only no food.

ok...national convention newbie question here...

I plan on going, but limiting my budget so I don't get too crazy there...kinda like not bringing my credit/atm card to the casinos ...anyway, with buying a bunch of boxes and opening them at the various manufacturers to get the redemption stuff...what do you do with all the base cards you just opened?? do you bring a bag of 800 count box and carry them with you or what?

Thanks

Will be there on Wednesday with my godchild who turns 12 on 02AUG11. It will be a surprise birthday gift. I plan on buying all my wax from Blowout cards!

Does anyone know if Blowout will be selling packs at the show?

P.S. I am still looking for the card in my signature! If anyone is selling the card, or sees it for sale can they please PM me with the info. I have been chasing this last card for some time now. Thank you. Mark

Hope everyone has some great pulls!

Some bad news my blowout compadres. Was planning on attending my first National this year and making the drive up from Cleveland. However, due to our finished basement flooding recently, I no longer have the time and funds to make the trek. I was really hoping to find some of the elusive 09-10 Contenders basketball cards I still need for my master set . Maybe next year and to all that are attending have fun and enjoy. Damn storm drains..................!

Is there a Blowout meetup planned? I'll be there Saturday- it would be fun to all go out for a bar night.

My wife and I are heading up tomorrow to get Joe Montanas autograph. The only problem is I couldn't find and authentic jersey of his to get autographed. We ran short on time because we were going to get John Elways autograph today but he had to cancel so it didn't leave us much time to get an authentic jersey. Maybe I will see some of you there. How you will know it is me I have no idea. LOL.

That would have been nice. I was there Thursday and Friday and only met 2 of the guys on here (weedyalan and iluvfish2). I wish I would have had a chance to meet more people from the forum (or at least know if I was around people from the forum).

Name tags are out dated....... QR Codes on your T-shirt linking people to your Forum link!!! Then it will be like "Breaking people" instead of boxes.
