If you come across a deal(s) that you know is a good deal but you say to yourself "oh I'll see if anyone else has this" or "I'll take a look around and come back"

don't do it. do the "good deal" because when you come back it will be gone. My first national in Chicago 2 years ago I said that to myself about 4 times and every time I went back what I wanted was gone.

I'm only going to be there from Wed-Fri. If you are planning on going to the National on Sat and/or Sun and want VIP admission on those days, hit me up. Maybe we can work out a trade or something.

PM me.

I will also have the auto tickets that I won't be using.

I have VIP pass that I will only need Wed-Fri, so if someone is going Sat/Sun let me know. They would have to be able to meet me at the show Friday afternoon to get the pass from me. PM me if interested.

Not much longer!!!!!

If anyone is selling VIP passes that could give me them on Friday morning BEFORE the show for me to use, I am interested in BUYING TWO of them.

ALSO, if anyone is busting a bulk of wax and has silver packs, sealed and unsearched, they wanna sell, I'd be interested in buying bulk lots for the right price.
