It was a great time! Thanks everyone. And I didn't get lost, Smokin Joe got lost Jon Gregory aka Not Neil Camera and I were following him. Ha!!!

At the dinner, Jeff Zapata gave a great tribute to Jay Lynch and then others chimed in afterwards with their remembrances of Jay.  It was very memorable.

Great cards and so cool that they're all collector themed.  Also a first official Wacky by our own Chad Scheres!  Too awesome!

Yes, let me add my well-deserved kudos to our own Chad Scheres for his first
official Wacky.  If you ever get a chance to meet him at a show, look for the tallest
guy there, and also one of the nicest!   And if his Dad is with him, and you like talking
Texas Hold'Em, you'll be at the right table!  :great:

Yep, Marty is GREAT! I used to buy from him, and his wife Deb, at an annual non-sport card show in Nashua, New Hampshire back in the mid-eighties. He's enthusiastic and extremely fair! btw... impressive wax pack!

Marty was just a cool cat to talk to and one of the top highlights I took away from the show. i'm hoping he can assist me further in my vintage pack collection quest in the future. The journey from Vegas was half the fun but, the people I met was priceless !!!

Wow... sweet score Dave ! I came to the conclusion that it's very tough not to get bogged down at one table perhaps missing out on other things but, being this was my first show I learned a lot on how to roll on the next one  8)

Sweet! You don't have any extra 10-cent ads packs, do you? That's one of the few packs I still need!

Well here it is 2 days after all the fun, emotions, etc. of my weekend at the show and to start things off, I want to start with a popular phrase that was used in the film Field of Dreams which I'm sure many of you know: "If you build it, people will come". Where I'm going with this is I placed some empty Wacky display boxes and many stacks of some of the newer Wacky singles on the table across from the table where you pay your Day 1 admission and wow did the people come up to that table and go to town on those boxes and cards, I obviously don't know who picked up a box(es) and the cards, But I'm sure they were all gone in less than an hr. As for the show itself, Like many shows I've attended in the past, I always attempt to try and recall the collectors who showed up for that particular show, Well this time, I'm not going to attempt it as I'm sure I'll miss some people. So I'll just say a big Thank you to all I hung out with at the show and then the dinner also. And speaking of the dinner, What a great meal!!!!! Chicken, Pasta, Dessert, and Beverages were definitely worth the price. During and after the meal there were lots of great conversations at each table with collectors who were meeting others for the very 1st time and ones that haven't seen one another in couple or so yrs. Prizes were handed out and I'm so glad that both Cheryl (Hipton) and I were able to acquire the memorial poster of Jay Lynch. She got hers through having our table no. drawn and I got mine directly from Matt Stock, As many of you that were at the dinner noticed that Mrs. Shoe and I got very emotional. WE didn't want any part of the weekend to end, But unfortunately all good things have to come to an end at some point. As far as things picked up at the show, I got some sealed ans boxes (Which I'm still in need of 2 certain ser. if any one can help) a few original singles for a forum member that couldn't be there, and 4 of Roxanne's sets. So I'll close here and just say that I'm already anticipating the fall show which BTW is Oct 21st/22nd

I think Marty has one more 5-center left if you want to smash the ol' piggy bank. I got a better deal because I got mine when he had five of them.

His name is Marty Krim. He is a long time non-sport collector and dealer. Not involved in the wacky hobby, more of a non-sport generalist.

it's already been 4 quick days since the show...

after 12 years since my last attendance, I finally headed to Allentown to check out a Philly Show again.
way too long in between shows, and something I need to work on

I didn't really expect to find too much in the way of cards, but I did complete my cereal billboard set for the 50th, picked up a couple nice sketches and a wacky shirt at Matt & Greg's table.
The big surprise was finding the very last X-fractor I needed to complete that Chrome set at Marc Simon's table. I figured this set would remain incomplete until the end of time, but there it was, a Jolly Mean X-fractor just waiting to be grabbed!

The real highlights though were in meeting all the artists and the forum members that were there.
From Smokin' Joe with his Wacky paintings and his personal sets, both the old 'wacky' ones and the new Creepy Containers, to George Wright and his Galactic Grocery cards and his Lost Wackys he had on view, to Fred Wheaton and his portfolio of Wacky and GPK art (that Hello Kidney piece is a thing of beauty to behold!), to Joe Simko, Jeff Zapata, Chad Scheres and Layton DeJarnette. Just fantastic to see all the original art and talk with the people who create these masterpieces!
And seeing more forum members than I can remember, old and new, Dave, Tom, Cheryl, Joe, Mark, Greg, John, Kevin, Rob, Dennis, Richard, Andrew, Marc - the latter group who are all part of the Buyer's Club as well, and awesome to finally meet in person.

Plus a huge and special shout out of thanks to my Wacky Uber drivers: Rob Hall and Joe Leonard, who got me back and forth from the hotel and show on Saturday and Sunday. And especially Joe, who went above and beyond on Sunday to make sure I checked out of the Garden Inn on time - after I stupidly forgot to before heading to the show that morning.

The other highlights of course were the great dinner and tribute to Jay on Saturday, the post-dinner hang-out at the Red Robin and the Sunday morning card talk session.

Great time all around and looking forward to doing it again some time!

Wow, that's a name form the past.  I traded with Marty many years ago.  From what I remember he is a little reclusive, but he has a lot of rare unopened packs.  I got some series 16 unopened packs from him and I think a series 2 as well.  It was a long time ago, my memory is a bit fuzzy there.
Still looking for Series 17
