Fall Philly Show Roll Call
« on: September 26, 2017, 04:27:59 PM »
I have asked for the days off but haven't booked a room yet.  I talked with Shoe and asked if a thread here had been started.  He said no, and that I should do it.  So, who's planning on going?  I have been going through things and will bring some items to sell, probably a 1st series sheet, 1st series set, full poster box, odds & ends, if anyone is looking for anything, let me know.  I am moving to a smaller home and downsizing, so I need to consolidate. It was great to see everyone in the spring and I look forward to seeing everyone again.

I wish I could, but the trek to Allentown is too long, so I'll probably only make it every ten years, so sign me up for the 60th Anniversary celebration.

If anyone actually cares, I have a table at the show this year. I'll be bringing my OS extras, some reissues, some 1991's, lots of random newer stuff (Some even kind of rare..), and enough 50th Ann. cards to make a life-size replica of the Eiffel Tower. Also, my dad collected horror comics for a while and now wants to get rid of them all. He has gotten rid of most of the super rare ones like Vampirella #3 and #1, early Famous Monsters, etc. But, here's some of the current stuff..

-Full set of Skywald Scream, and Skywald Psycho... Includes #1's.
-Partial set of Skywald Nightmare... Includes #1.
-Huge amount of Warren Creepy's... Includes #1.
-Huge amount of Warren Eerie's... Includes first five, except #1 of course, and #17.
-Some Vampirella, Castle of Frankenstein, and more misc. stuff that I don't remember off the top of my head.

Wanna know who I am? A boy with long hair who is probably wearing a Creep or metal shirt.

Why do you think that no one cares?  If I can somehow get there, I will certainly look for your table, and would love to meet you!

Looks like your dad has some cool stuff!  Draw Attention to your table by actually piling the cards up high enough to make an Eiffel Tower that would be cool!

Ditto for me. Allentown is a ways off. I made it for the 50th, but itíll be awhile before I get to another one.

I'll be there. Got a room this time. Will be attending the dinner Sat. night. I, also, will have many OS singles with me for sale or trade. I will be looking for OS 7th thru 14th puzzle pieces plus a lot of 12th and 13th series stickers sans roller marks.

Take a look at the populations on 14th tans in higher PSA grades. IMHO it's all because of roller marks. EVERY 14th tan in my keeper set had roller marks.

Responding to these respectively..

I guess thank you? I know I've gotten a couple inquiries on here about which ones I have (comics) and I have replied accordingly but never really gotten anyone serious enough I guess. My father is kinda pissed off at ebay buyers as well because several people have complained about shipping and condition issues, and we described any possible issues.. but the problem was their mailman. We are obviously not liable for that, but to dodge the negative we have to give the money back. No seller's protection on eGay....
Also, the Eiffel Tower thing is a good idea for drawing attention! Just hope no one buys the one on the bottom.

I said the "No one cares" thing because I've only met like two people on here at the shows. It would be nice to meet some people even though it is a bit awkward since I'm a kid and all.. and well... everyone else are adults. Of course I'm the 70's kid. Isn't that someone's name on here? P.S. When I said 70's kid, I didn't mention disco.

Modified my first post in the thread. My dad doesn't own Eerie #1. Pretty honkin rare from what he told me.

 Hey Spittoon,

Do you have any of your dad's FM's left?   I bought them off and on from #138 to #190.   Interested in filling in some holes and earlier issues.

Can't make it to Allentown, would love to meet you!  but maybe if you sill have some left, we could work out something through the snail mail.

ps.   I stayed away from the 50th set, and really know nothing about it.....sounds like you have a lot of extra stuff.....I'd be interested in anything related directly to the original 70's sets..........

Toadally understandable that you are against setting up next to them.  Do they still smell badly?

Good one Ern!  I just corrected my typo.  But I'll bring clothespins just in case.  I actually do have a gas mask from Operation Desert Storm but I don't think I'll need to go that far.  But you never know.....

I believe I will be there on Saturday. Can drag my extra OS stickers/puzzle pieces, if anyone really wants to look. Not sure what else anyone may be looking for...speak up, folks, if I have it, I'll bring it along. Wrappers, '94 pog set, '82 cereal stickers (sets), some die-cuts...can't think what else.

How do you know there is a dinner?  Where can I find this information?  Can't seem to find anything pertaining to this on the Philly Non-Sports Card Show site.  And, if one does reserve a seat in advance, can they kick you out of it because they overbooked?

If whoever is attending wore name tags, we could find each other that much easier to meet, buy, trade, talk, and sock one another in the jaw over political issues.  Maybe they could set up a special table for traders and a wrestling/boxing ring for others?

Also, does anyone know for sure if a special set of cards will be created for this particular show?  Or the Vegas show, for that matter?

Lastly, what do we do if they play the National Anthem?  Stand at attention?  Kneel?  Dash for the tables with the best deals while everyone else is preoccupied?  Run to the restroom?  Lately, I am just so hopelessly confused I don't really know what to do anymore.

The dinner is announced on an email when you subscribe to the newsletter. You cannot get kicked out, but if you leave your spot will not be saved. I would suggest the name tags as well, maybe not the boxing gloves. I think there is a special set of cards for the show, don't remember what they are. They don't play the National Anthem, it's a card show. Hope that answers everything.

Mark, don't forget to bring your buttons!

I'm confused. Is there another Mar(K) here? I know of a Marc but no other Mark's in this thread. Did you mean the '94 Pog Set the Bigtomi brought up?

I'm sorry about the Mark confusion! It's a popular name in this hobby. I meant quas, Marc Simon. I spelled Marc wrong. He had some great '50's & '60's buttons that I bought from him. One of my favorites said, "A Groovy FIG I Really Dig!" We were puzzled at first, but looked it up & it was '50's slang for Fill In Girl, someone you'd date until somebody you really liked came along. I guess a precursor to today's booty call. From what I know, the dinner is more casual, at a burger type place and the cost is $15.

Sorry I didn't reply to this yet. I do have some Famous Monsters left, will PM you the numbers when I get the time. (Feel free to remind me if I don't remember.)

Also, the 50th set, believe it or not, or believe it (No one's surprised here, Topps!), nothing has to do with the 70's. Only piss poor diecut remakes and fake products. Still interested?

Aside from family obligations, I would have to rent a car, as mine is in need of new front fenders, and I have been so busy dealing with home repair issues that I have not gotten the car repairs done.  No way I can drive on the crater-ridden Cross Bronx Expressway the way it is  :sad:
