Philly Show Roll Call
« on: March 16, 2017, 06:48:35 PM »
I would like to start a list of who will be attending the upcoming show.  I will be attending the show, but the dinner is full. Roxanne has put me on a waiting list. I would like to know who is not going to the dinner, maybe we can have our own dinner group. It will be great to see everyone again. We need to cherish these moments when we can see each other, you never know when it may all come to an end.  This has been a difficult week for me and I'm barely functioning. Right now, I am grateful for my hours being cut and only had to work two days this week.  Jay Lynch passed away, his buddy Skip Williamson passed earlier today and a dear friend who was very popular in the CA pinball community died from cancer a few days ago.  If you are a FB friend, I posted about him on my page.

I will be attending both the show and dinner on Saturday.  I'm rather excited, for this will be my first time ever.

I would suggest you create another post with three lists:  Saturday Show, Dinner, and Sunday Show.  As people reply, you can then go back into the same post using the "modify" feature and add their names to the appropriate lists.  This way people's responses will all be together in one central place and not scattered all over the thread.

Dinner and show for me, and I'll be setting up at a table as well.  Will be selling Wackies by the pound, especially Chrome. Get 'em real cheap.

Congrats Shoe.  That is quite a milestone.  Who knows, maybe I will finally make it back to a show this year.  I think it has been about a decade since I made a show.  I know I haven't been to the new place.  The last time I went was in Allentown.  I was there for the big one and the after party at Greg's.  That was the first time I met Jay and got to watch him draw in person.  I was blown away.  He was amazing, even moreso for me since I have absolutely zero artistic ability and watching someone create amazing drawings from just a pencil and a piece of paper was pretty cool.

I'll be at the dinner Saturday night, and the show both days.

I haven't been out that way since '05 and the big bash. No better excuse than the big FIVE-OH for Wackys.

Bill, Allentown is the "new" place. The big event (at Greg's with Jay) was in '05 and the Philly show itself was still in Mt. Laurel that year. Guess that just shows you need to join us more often, LOL.

I'll be attending the show (both days) as well as the dinner. Will have my usual Galactic Groceries set up, along with a preview of Wacky Packages paintings created from my rejected roughs from my Topps years (2005 - 2012) My table will be located across the aisle from where I've usually set up camp. Looking forward to reconnecting with long time Wacky friends & fans!

I have one extra (1) ANS2 base set if you would like to make a trade of some sort.  (But not ANS6 or ANS10.)  PM me if interested.  Thanks.

Thanks, It would have been pretty crappy showing up at Mt. Laurel by myself   ;)

You'd have to ask Roxanne Toser is there are any more tables available.  If you have a table, your contract says that you have to attend both days.................so yes.

That's what I thought, that they don't like empty tables.  When I helped run the dealer's room at Icon, the dealers were supposed to be set up for the Friday evening opening, and stay through closing on Sunday evening.

If I was still living in NY I would have loved to have gone. I'm in South Florida now though.

My Funko obsession has run it's course after 15 years .. so now I'm back to some of my old collections.

Wacky's, other Non-Sport Cards, Baseball Cards, Pinbacks, and '66 Batman stuff.

I'm tired of the Mega Convention atmosphere .. no more SDCC or NYCC for me for a while at least.

Would love to find some old school shows to buy and even sell at.

Have fun all who go.
How old is this gum ???

I'm fairly certain we met through Prodigy and you were the first person I ever traded with.

  No, that wasn't me. The first Wacky trade(s) that I ever did in my 48 years of life, was last week with Sco(o)t and Andrew. Seriously. I've been on this site for almost 7 years and I just recently broke the 100 post mark, so I haven't been very active here.

  Also, I don't know what Prodigy is/was. Wasn't that an internet service like AOL?

I will be coming in Friday evening for the show Saturday. It has been a few years since I have attended. Probably not staying Saturday night as I am not in the dinner unless something else good is going on....

If anyone is interested in the dinner, contact Roxanne Toser and see if there's been any cancellations. I was on a waiting list and a spot opened up due to a cancellation. So, I'm quite happy to be attending the dinner and can't wait to see everyone. I'm staying at the Comfort Inn across from Dorney Park, coming in on Thursday. If anyone else is coming early and wants to hang out or go to dinner on Thursday or Friday night, let me know.
