Philly Non-Sports Card Show ~ October 20th & 21st, 2018
« on: September 06, 2018, 07:47:31 PM »
Hello All!

As I had mentioned in the Galactic Groceries thread, I would be posting some information regarding the upcoming Allentown show that Roxanne Toser sent me last night and this morning. I will list her installments in separate posts to keep things from getting confusing. The first one is shown below...



Both the 69th and 70th Philly Non-Sports Card Shows have a theme. The theme is Wackys and GPK. The top-tier artist lineup for the October 20th & 21st show is: Tom Bunk, Smokin' Joe, David Gross, Joe Simko, Layron DeJarnette and Chad Scheres. In order to defray the cost for the artists, we have sponsors who have pledged $250 and they are: Aaron Booton, Mark Simon, Matt Stock, Brian McKnight, GPK & Wacky Warehouse and Sidekick.

   There will be a promo for all show attendees by Brent Engstrom. Topps has chipped in with a generous donation to help with the artists and to reduce the cost for collectors attending the Saturday Night Dinner at the Airport Hilton Garden Inn (host hotel). Topps is also allowing two dinner-only promos produced by Joe Simko and Fred Wheaton. These will have a Halloween theme for Wackys and GPK. There is only room for 64 people to attend the dinner and only those attending the dinner will receive the promos. There will also be an exclusive promo from Mark Pingatore, as well as an assortment of prizes from Creepy, Co. and a t-shirt from Fright Rags. To register for the dinner contact roxannetoser@gmail.com. Thanks to Topps, the cost for the dinner is only $17.95 pp.

   The spring show is May 4th & 5th, 2019 and will continue the theme. The top-tier artist lineup is Mark Pingatore, Fred Wheaton, Jeff Zapata, James Warhola, Neil Camera and one more artist to be determined. A couple more artist sponsors are needed for a pledge of $250. At both shows, the artists will draw a color sketch for their sponsor. There will, again, be two dinner-only promos, with permission from Topps. These will have a spring theme and will be drawn by Layron DeJarnette and Chenduz. The spring promos will be numbered 3 and 4 and the fall promos will be numbered 1 and 2 so the four will be considered a set.

   The show is held at the Merchants Square Mall in Allentown, PA. Show hours are 10 to 5 on Saturday and 10 to 3 on Sunday. We have a rate at the Airport Hilton Garden Inn of $97 + tax, which includes a fully-cooked breakfast for two. For more information: phillynon-sportscardshow.com/.

Hi George,

Here is a last minute change (last minute due to ad deadlines). Mark Pingitore's card will be for everyone and Tom Bunk will do a card for the dinner. Also the artists will participate in a panel discussion at Card Talk.

Hi George,

 

There is so much going on with this show, I don't know what I'm doing. Did I mention Smokin' Joe will be the speaker at the dinner? If not, please say something when you list this evening.

Haven't been active as high school is back in. Looks like I missed the dinner reservations. Unfortunate. Would like to do that one of these times.

I'm not expecting to obtain any of those limited promo cards, but I hope the artists can post scans of their promo card artwork to ooh and aah over!

Glad to hear you'll be at the spring show! I also wanted to attend the October show, but too many scheduling conflicts. Anyway, there's no way I'm going to miss the spring show, so hopefully, everyone can find time to get there! Got some cool surprises in the works...

With the 6th being this upcoming Sat. We will be then 2 weeks out from the next show. Seeing how this is Halloween month, I think we should start a "body" count to see who is planning on attending-LOL. I plan on being there on Sat. but most likely won't be staying over.

I will be there Saturday. I was originally hoping to be there both days but a party was planned on Saturday so I have to go there after the show, and highly doubt that I will be at the show the next day.

For any of you wondering, my father will be here with me but my mother will not due to the aforementioned party planned by my cousin.

Also, I support that we all make nametags so that we know who everyone is. Maybe even make a sketch of your card/character for fun.

Thanks!
Mark

My intention is to be there on Saturday. I will drag my OS extra stickers and puzzle pieces along, I suppose. As always, if anyone attending is looking for something specific, you have about 24 hours from now to let me know and I'll bring if I have.

Awesome show.

I got my first ludlow (Ultra Blight 2nd black)
I upgraded a Choke Wagon..
and I was under the impression that I had completed my 1-15. Well, somewhere in the process my Paydough that I bought went missing. And, Dud was not on my list and I do not have that. So, forget it. I am missing two 12th series titles. When you try your best...

Other than that, I got two 4th series wrappers, a 10c Wacky Ad wrapper with a chunk out of it,
and a Hurts Wacky Ad.
And thanks to BigTomi for the OS 11 puzzle!  ;)

So, lots of cool stuff... It's just really aggravating that I thought my 1-15 was complete just to find out that the Paydough went missing somewhere in time and Dud is just nonexistent. But, what can I do?

I'll look for you when I get home.  I take it you no longer need the other OS stickers that I set aside for you?

I suppose not, sorry about that. And, I just messaged Matt S. and we worked out a deal. I'm gonna pay him $5 at the next show and he'll send me the two cards next week.

There are cards, though, that need upgraded. And I still need plenty of diecuts that I believe you probably have. The sad thing is that I'm broke now.

I bought them, again, from Matt S. I don't know exactly what they were priced at since I went through his boxes and got a whole bunch of other singles from other series that I needed and bought them as a lot. I forget what the total was... I believe $180. That was for the 16ths, finishing my 15th which included Famous Mobsters and Gums (and several others), and almost finishing my 14th. I bought the last 14th, Snort, from him later on.

You've gotta come in the spring! It's awesome meeting people on the forum.
Count of people I saw cause why not:
Pupsi Cola
Paul Maul
Scheres
Soremel
BigTomi

Don't think I missed anyone. Great to see all of you again.

I didn't know the 16s were from Matt, just the Paydough and Dud.
