Been to a couple...but can't count that high. After the 110,000+ in 1991 where you couldn't move it doesn't seem too crowded.

There is a countdown clock added to the National website and they added:

The countdown clock above reminds us that the 34th National opens on Wednesday, July 31. If you purchased a week-long VIP Admission package, you can attend the special VIP Reception beginning at 2:30PM in Room 14 at the Convention Center. Make sure to bring your ticket and pick up your credentials, VIP Gift Package and VIP Autograph Tickets at the Lobby Registration Kiosk before heading over to the Reception. VIPs will be permitted onto the show floor at 3:30 PM

Waiting for the National is the adult version of anticipating Christmas morning!

Because solt is not on I will post for him because we talking nationals a few weeks ago.

He is busting wax for the Panini VIP Party. Last time I checked he was busting Marquee basketball and was getting 750 silver packs. He was looking to move the wax for a discounted cost and then sell the silver packs. Not sure if that has happened but I believe that was his plan.

Hope that helps

If you purchased a SuperVIP admission, it includes free week-long parking at the Rosemont Public Parking Garage, located across from the Convention Center entrance between the Doubletree and Embassy Suites Hotels. You will pull a ticket when you enter the garage on the first day you attend the National. You are not expected to pay until leaving the garage. When you get to the Convention Center, you will receive your parking pass when you present your valid SuperVIP Ticket at the VIP Kiosks in the Lobby of the Convention Center. You will then use the Parking Pass to exit and enter the garage all week. DO NOT PULL A FRESH TICKET UPON ENTRY BUT USE YOUR SUPERVIP PARKING PASS FOR BOTH ENTRY AND EXIT ALL WEEK. Only one parking pass will be issued per SuperVIP so please make sure to take care of it.
