Here is my plan for the show this weekend:
Friday November 2nd: This will strictly be a "viewing only" day for me. As a member of the GBSCC, I get free admission to the show so I don't mind spending a little time there on Friday to see the setup and the inventory of the dealers. No autograph guests, so I think the crowd may be pretty small.
Saturday November 3rd: I'll be pretty busy on Saturday as there will be a LOT of autograph guests that interest me. The full lineup includes (as of today): Ozzie Smith, Pedro Martinez, Fred Lynn, Ramiro Mendoza, Cecil Cooper, Will Middlebrooks and Jake Lamotta. I plan on getting autographs from Ozzie, Pedro, Lynn and Lamotta. I would love to get Cooper and Middlebrooks, but I think I'd rather use those funds elsewhere during the show.
Sunday November 4th: I'm going to try to attend on Sunday as well, but we'll see how the baby cooperates at home. Full autograph lineup includes (as of today): Aaron Hernandez, Doug Mientkiewicz, Brooks Robinson, John Bucyk, Shawn Thornton, Ellis Burks, Troy Brown and Ricky Gutierrez. I'm planning to get Brooks Robinson and Ellis Burks, with possibly Doug Mientkiewicz on my in-progress 2004 WS Team Ball.
Overall, I'll be looking to fill my set needs and add some cool PC items at the show. If any dealers are reading, bring Ginter commons from past years, BVG graded cards at good prices and LOTS of Red Sox stuff.
I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that my work week will allow me time to get a custom t-shirt and business cards made to promote my site.
Check out the flyer below and email me at email@example.com if you plan on attending. I'd love to meet some new friends at the show!
