Spring 2019 Philly Show (May 4th/5th)
« on: February 14, 2019, 07:56:39 PM »
I'm not posting this thread this early to get an actual head count right now since we are still about 3 months away yet, I'll look for that around the middle of April. Why I'm posting is to remind you all that Neil will be one of the guest artists for the next show and for those that attended the show in 2017 when he was supposed to come to that show and couldn't attend due to a weather situation or something else in his hometown, Well I'm sure I speak for all those who were really looking forward to meeting and hanging out with him that weekend. He has mentioned in a similar post a little while back that he definitely plans on making the spring show no matter what it takes to get him there. So for those of you who haven't attended a show in quite a long time (And you know who you are) I certainly hope he has many opportunities to attend as many shows as possible. But realistically, this one may be the only one for quite sometime. So whatever you have to do to get to this show to meet him, Good luck in your endeavors. Looking forward to seeing all those that can come in the spring. May the 4th be with us-LOL. Mark-Shoe.

the "Spring" Philly Show?

planning for it, but depends on when the upcoming Crew Dragon and Starliner launches actually occur. Those have precedence for me.

Ha! Thanks for the very kind sentiment everyone! And yes, this will likely be my one and only show in 2019, so I hope to finally meet a lot of you in person, especially you Mark (I think we first started trading around 1985)! Can't believe we've never met! Anyway, super excited about the show! There's some great artists lined up, some kick butt promo cards and cool events! All we need are the fans to put the cherry on top of this banana split!

I offered to sponsor an artist, and never heard back.  Guess they had enough donors?

I May attend as the pinball show is back to aligning with this show and this show is not on the weekend of spring break like it has many times.  On top of that, my girls may be away for a girl scout retreat.  TRIFECTA!

I have taken a couple of years off but I will be selling off a bunch of stuff again.  If anyone wants to claim something that I can bring to the show with off ebay deals, I am all ears.  Today I am ebay listing a complete basically untouched set of wacky towels and a and complete basically untouched set of the series 1 vinyl pillows.

I have some sad news to report today and although I don't know when he passed, I'm sure it was just recently. For those of you that attend this show whether it be the spring one or in the fall, I'm sure you have met the bearded gentleman that stands at the bottom of the ramp as you are about to visit each of the dealer's tables. His name is Ulysses Connors and I found out about his passing today from one of the dealers I keep in contact with when the shows are not going on. Mr. C was a resident of Whitehall and was the local constable in his community and his job at the non-sport shows was to make sure that everyone who attended was on their best behavior. Back a while ago, he had a little card shop outside behind his home where he sold many diff. non-sport packs including a couple of the original series ones, back issues of The Wrapper, etc. May you in RIP Mr. C

I remember a story about him. I was a dealer at the show once, with my parents. The second morning, when we came in, I see a Barbie doll on our table. HE put it there. He pranked me. I always remember him for that.
In case you're wondering what I did with the Barbie: I went to Matt Stock's table and tucked it in one of his bins. My dad and I later came back and asked why he was selling it. Ah, good times.
May he rest in peace.
Mark

I would like to start getting a head count of who's planning on attending around the 3rd week of Apr. I think that is enough time to plan.

Perhaps another Wacky meeting/dealing table set aside, to avoid the nasty food area situation?  I remember contributing to that back when Rob was around here.

No, he's still around. He's just not collecting much of the new stuff.
