I've noticed that Dave has been bumping up the prices on those Venes. He's probably figured out that he's a pretty good hub to find them. I know I paid more than I wanted for the cards I purchased from him, but they are hard to find so I was willing to pay it.
I contacted John Rumierz to see if he can be of any additional help, so thanks for that tip!
Are you a member of the Topps Venezuela Yahoo Group? I haven't been involved much there, but it's another good place to do some networking.

Do you ever see any really old Venezuelan cards from the 20s, 30s and 40s at these shows? The oldest I've ever seen for sale are from the 30s but can't recall the name of the manufacturer.

I am down to needing only 27 cards to complete my 66 set myself. I've made a couple of connections through this forum in case you haven't seen it. There are some local Venezuelan members which may be able to help you. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/toppsvenezuela/ Keep me posted on your progress and happy hunting.
