The one thing I will tell you is this, have your paperwork in order to cross the border. The border is a much more serious business than it used to be.
You also might want to consider going to buy only and not bring anything with you for trading/selling.
When I went with 3 other collectors, one of the guys brought a small box of card for trade, and I brought 2 sealed boxes to open for the Expo freebies. When we got to the border, we were told that our items constitiuted importing goods for financial gain, and the border guard made us go to the building to claim our goods and pay the appropriate import duty fees. The 2 guards inside laughed about it, and let us go, but did tell us that TECHNICALLY the first guard was right, they just weren't going to enforce it against a couple a guys with hockey cards....
