Forgot my forum drawing thing on Friday so I dropped it off yesterday. Here's a quick photo:


The booth was loaded. In general prices were maybe 10% or so below online, no tax and no shipping. But there were lots of great daily specials and a few other deep markdowns. It was cool.


Great show but I didn't get as much shopping done as I thought I would, I spend most of yesterday at the Negro league booth listening to some old CAG players. I mean I was sitting there chatting with guys that fought in WWII, played for Buck O'Neil, and faced Satchel Paige. Wow.

Only at the National. I'm jealous. Looking forward to 2012 in Baltimore!

You mean, markup?

I don't think BOs National prices are any lower than their regular prices, let alone their weekend specials.

some were a couple of bucks cheaper, some were a couple of bucks more...just had to look around and decide who to give your money to...

either i missed it or blowout didn't have single packs for sale, but i had to buy some single packs from someone else because rookies and stars had 24 packs and i need 1 more for the wrapper redemption...i was a little bummed that I paid $5 more at blowout for totally certified, than some other places, but its all good, they had better prices on others...next time i'll take my time a little more

I "invested" about 90% of what I brought with me (and 100% of what I didn't bring with - CREDIT CARD!!!) at Blowout's booth and it was because of their great pricing (and knowing that their boxes were "clean!").

I got some great deals and opened some nice product (Exquisite FB Box, Sterling BB Box, Totally Certified BK Case, Gold Standard BK Box, ITG Ultimate HK Box, ONXY National 3-Ball Case, Leaf Icons Update Box and a few others I believe). Danny, Chris and Pat all provided me with some great information about the show and they seemed genuinely excited to meet me and all of the guys and gals on the forums who stopped by to say "hello."

The guys at Blowout know that we all have the ability to walk around and shop for the best price (in person or online), so it definitely never hurts to see if they can match or beat a price for you (they certainly did for me at the show).

Thanks!

I had the pleasure of meeting those guys last year...and yes...they are really friendly. I know BO gets a bad rap from time to time because other business have a hard time competing. But they truly do have the best prices. I need to start saving up for 2012...they are going to take all my money!!!

Just wanted to post a quick Thank You to Everyone who attended the show this year. It was truly a pleasure meeting many of you and putting a name to a face. We're still catching up as many of us got in at 2 AM EST last night. Hope you enjoyed the promotions and many of the deals offered. We still have to pull some names for the Forum Members Thread giveaways which we'll do later in the week.

We recieved a ton of feedback from all of you and we Thank you for that. We'll try to implement many of those changes in the coming months. We'll have a nice video with a recap posted in a few days. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in Baltimore in 2012 !

Thanks again
Chris and the Staff at Blowoutcards

had a blast at the blowout booth havent spent $ like this on cards ever was having too much fun ripping. i didnt look for wax anywhere else since i knew i could trust blowout and they were opening fresh cases without me asking if there wasnt many boxes to chose from to ensure i got a real chance at the case hits

i bought gold standard basketball--pulled a couple of kobe auto's and numerous stuff out of the redemption packs from panini

ringside round 1 boxing--pulled an ali auto

ringside round 2 boxing-- pulled evander auto amongst other good hits

it was a great week at the show thanks guys

Had a great time in Chicago with BLOWOUTCARDS. Bought all of my wax from blowout. Pulled an Mark Ingram auto 3/5, Shannon Sharpe HOF Auto, and a Marshall Faulk HOF all from 12 redemption packs from panini for opening the box of Totally Certified. Hopefully a little magic for some of us when they draw winners for the forum member drawing this week.
