Need your guys opinion.

I find the best way at local shows in these parts is to pull a hundred dollar bill out when their wives are crying to leave to get dinner ready and pops is putting his stuff away about 15 minutes before the show ends and point to some of his best stuff, more then likely you will be walking away with a stack of awesome cards with his wife telling you where they will be next week.
Hofstra U, has shows almost weekly and usually with MLB or former MLB guys signing among other athletes.
I know of the VFW in Centereach has shows often, they are small but you can get some good deals with the guys there.
Ever since SportPlus closed down there are no real big shows in Suffolk anymore very often. The Hilton on 110 has shows that are pretty good as well.
