Who's going to the National? - dunnere - 05-08-2014

35th National Sports Collectors Convention, July 30-August 3, 2014, International Exposition (I-X) Center, Cleveland OH

Fortunately, for me, the National comes back to C-Town every four years or so, so this is in my back yard. Does anybody else have any plans to try to attend?

Honestly, I buy a few boxes for the Wrapper Redemptions, and walk around looking for singles for sets that I never can find...one day is more than enough for me, I do not get any autographs unless they are free, and even then I will not wait in line. But it is fun to waste a few hours, break a couple of boxes and take a shot at some nice give aways.

I won't be able to make it this year :/ maybe if PP has a good product that comes out and a limited print run bonus, maybe someone can pick a few up for me

I wish I could go, but I don't currently see any way that I will make it. I have never been to the Nat'l. Conv. but always wanted to go.
It would be nice if they'd have it somewhere closer to NC sometime. If they had it anywhere b/t DC and Atlanta, I would certainly try to make it there.

I think Baltimore was 2012, which means it might be back in the rotation eventually, but the bnext few years are:

2014: Cleveland
2015: Chicago
2016: Atlantic City
2017: Chicago
2018: Cleveland
2019: Chicago

That 2016 stop should have been Balitmore, I think, but they decided to do something different...there was an article about it somewhere...

Well, I plan on going, and if I do, I would be willing to look for some "wants" that anybody has...

I too would love to go...but looking at the location list you posted, it never comes close to me.

If you do go, keep a look out for JMac autos I don't have...I would greatly appreciate that!

I'm always on the lookout for you, my friend.

My goal this year is find the rest of the '05 Studio a Portraits Bob Feller cards I need, and snag any Tony Stewart Total Memorabilia 2012 that I need...all low numbered cards, I don't hold much hope...

OH HELL YES! I can go down and spend all my money on sports cards and not have to worry about losing it in the casinos cause I'll be about 6 months shy of turning 21! The only place I need to worry about is the horse track Wink
