When I got there, all the "free" parking was taken and I had to pay $5 to park in a lot, how wonderful. Not to mention the gas money and toll money (BTW, I just heard our brilliant Mayor just raised all bridge tolls up $5, WOO, how fun it is to be a resident here!). Then I had to pay the ticket fee to get in, which was I think $7 or $8.
I didn't buy any cards. The 1 card that did interest me was a Cousins RPA from NT. The patch was s-i-c-k, it had the Kings crown on it.
..So, as I made my way around the whole show and come to the last tables there was like a charity booth. Yeah, I told them how much "fun" and the money I had to spend to get there. How about me gettin' some charity! Haha, they laughed. I was just trying to laugh about the situation that I drove all the way here and didn't see a card I wanted or buy a single card.
So, I made my way to the restroom. As I'm coming out now, I randomly see a vintage Knicks poster in a sports memorabilia booth. It had Frazier, Barnett, DeBusschere, Bradley & Reed on it. I guess the original owner or kid who had it on his wall wrote the names of each player under their pictures. I thought that was pretty neat. Haggled with the owner and I bought it. Took it to my LCS, had them professionally frame it and it's on my wall.
