Sorry if this is a dumb question, but do the wrapper redemptions start on Wednesday or Thursday?

I am in booth 2245 (near PSA) and will be accepting Credit Cards. Come and see me!

I think a telling example is the Cleveland show. They have a ferris wheel right in the middle of the show, at the I-X Center. In 2004, there was a ton of space on either side. When I was there in 2009, you could see that they moved the wall up almost alongside the wheel. This means that there is about half the amount of tables from 5 years earlier.

The "hobby" is too expensive now and it's killing the collecting population.

Good point...that Ferris wheel was not something I expected to see!

I was at Baltimore 2 years ago, so here's a few tips for anyone who hasn't been because as far as I've seen it'll be roughly the same layout for the floor plan.

1) From where you enter the show doors, to get to the Blowout booth area go to the far right wall and head straight down. When you get toward the end of the aisle look left for the Mountain of hobby boxes

2) Once in the Blowout area you will be right in the vacinity of the Topps, Pannini, Press Pass, etc etc wrapper redemption areas. Once you buy packs or boxes just ask the blowout guys which direction to head and they will point it out to you. I know Pannini wanted you to bust the product there near their booth but I don't think its required. Last time they had a couple round tables set up for the busting of wax. You will have to present them the wrappers though. It also seemed like it was 5 wrappers per redemption pack.

3) Bring a back pack if possible to tote your treasures around. It'll be alot easier to keep up with and keep hands free for digging through .25 - $10 boxes. Also if you are going to be there for several hours I would recommend bringing water, soda, or snacks with you. The concessions in the Convention center were not cheap if I remember correctly.

4) If you are only going to be there for a day, have a plan. This show is big and its hard to see everything or dig through all the boxes in 1 day. Know what you are looking for or what you want to do before you get there.

5) You don't have to, but its easier if you have a layout map of the show. If you see something you may want or aren't sure if you want and plan on going back after it possibly later, mark the booth on your layout it'll make it easier to find your way back to it.

6) If you wanna dig through $5 and $10 G/U and Auto boxes the last show most of those folks were on the right back quarter of the show. There are folks scattered throughout the building though.

7) Poster style Auto's, Jersey stuff, Helmets, and Mini Helmets should be in the back center and left corner of the show setup. To the Far left back corner will be where the Autograph signings will be.

8) There will be lines some long, some short for certain things like promotions. I know Topps had some kind of card (can't remember which one) that they wouldn't start giving away until a certain time and folks lined up for it. If you have limited time I would think twice before you jump in line for a promo card.

9) Most folks are probably on a budget, but if you've never been take the amount of cash you think you should take and multiple it by 5 or even 100 There will be just about everything you could want there and if you can't find it you probably didn't look hard enough.

Hope this helps some of the first timers out a little bit. If anyone has anything to add to help out please do.

Who here is going to have a booth there and if so your number. Would be cool to keep money and trades in the group if possible.
