Topps was not allowing you to use the Mini packs for the other redemption which sucks as I had bought 6 boxes of the minis. All had memorabilia cards in them and I even got 2 Adam Wainright jersey cards.
How early did you have to get their in order to be the second member through the door? I have gotten their early both days and not gotten to the Topps booth in time.

I believe I got there at 7:30. As soon as I walked toward the VIP lounge area and saw the doors, a kid walked back over to start the line. I actually struck up a conversation and friendship with him and his Dad, so it was cool. Both of them got Puig cards too.

Thanks for the reply. My dad and I got their around 8:40 thinking we would be one of the first people there only to find the line went to the end of the room.

Which ones and how cheap? I have the Super VIP and only sold my Nascar so far. Panini is one + the 2013 FB HOF set.

Are you at the show?

Is there much modern day cards? I have heard reports that most of the show is 1975 and older. Are the back rows modern? I don't want to go if vintage is everything.

Had a somewhat good time today. found a pc card i have been looking for, graded a sick pull. But went to wrigley (saw puig) but left early so I could get back to my hotel (made it back at 10:30 chicago time)

While we were waiting on the bus to get us to the train...A lady (was high as a kite) winked at me and started rubbing my arms.... Nope wont be going to wrigley ever again...


But did meet a blowout member on the bus to Wrigley but forgot his username so if you met me on the bus/train station lmk.

Well, if that was in Wrigleyville, there's a good chance that "lady" wasn't a lady.

he hasn't been at that front booth in many years. he has been boycotting the national since they changed the way booths were assigned, doing some sort of drawing vs giving preference to tenured dealers.

Hell be in the front of the room at the sun times shows
