Spring Philly Show. May 21st/22nd.
« on: March 30, 2022, 07:41:39 PM »
As of this upcoming Sat. We'll be 8 weeks out from the next non-sport show. It will be held at the Greater Oaks Expo center in Oaks, PA.
Looking forward to hopefully seeing all of you who were at the "21" Oct. Fall show and also those of you who haven't attended a show in over 3-4 yrs or more. I'll be in attendance on Sat. but won't be able to stay over. Let's get a possible head count. C-Ya all in 2 months.

I'll be there, but not setting up at a table this time.  Just an attendee.

I will be there again as well.  Joe, thanks for the recent buys.  I will be bringing lots of my extra stuff.  Let me know if you want to meet up after we both rifle through everything at the show.
Still looking for Series 17

Sounds like we can have a good meeting with Joe, Bigmuc13, and myself looking through a bunch of good stuff!

Are there any Wacky or other parody promo cards announced?

Still hoping George Wright continues the Galactic Groceries and ships me the last set I never received (March 2019?)

He wasn't at the last show (that was a first!) but hopefully he'll be at this upcoming one.

Yes as much as I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, Our Wacky brother George won't be at the May show and he also informed me that the fall one for him may be up in the air as well. Although his promos will be included in the admission pack for the show in 6 weeks. Looking forward to seeing Marc S, Bill C, Joe L, And the rest of the Wacky Bunch.

How much are entry passes? Maybe I'll buy one to get all the free promos.

Anyone know what promos will be available or is it too early? The Philly website doesn't have info yet.

For anyone coming to the show, if you have puzzles, complete or single pieces, Please bring them as I'll be in a checklist buying mood.

Before I ask, what promos are available this year? I would like an entry pass as well if the price isn't too high.

Otherwise, I hope there will be extra parody promos available here in the forum for a decent price.

Thank you!

I need a 1st series white-back Mutts if anyone happens to see one at the show.  Or if anyone has one available now, I would be interested.

3 weeks out now as of yesterday, any one else think they can make an apperance either Sat the 21st or Sun the 22nd? The more Wacky collectors the better.

Some of us here in the Midwest cannot make Philly…will have to settle for Chicago show the week before Philly…..Have we ever figured out why there are so many more Wacky-heads (Wack-a-doodles makes us sound demented) out East than here in the Midwest?

Because Topps is located in the East.  We easterners get the purest product. We are very close to the source.  That makes us the Wackiest people!

Isnt it true that the case of 16th series that surfaced years later was unearthed in the Midwest? So we are good for something.,,

I think it's more basic than that, regardless of where Topps is/was. There is a much larger/denser population in the East (esp. NorthEast) than in the midwest and most other sections of the country. It just statistically works that there would be more of us in that area.

Ahh, that explains why some of my packs purchased in Indiana were cut with the occasional baseball card.  :]

I always consoled myself as a teenager in the 1980s by saying we here in the Midwest would be the last ones attacked in a nuclear war….My friend always pointed out that depending on the wind, the fallout would probably get us….

Its not always about inflicting the most death. Sometimes its about inflicting the maximum amount of terror. Yes bombing the coasts would kill the most, but bombing Middletown USA terrorizes the most.

don't want to be anywhere near it Jim

Hopefully none of us, or our children or children’s children will ever find out… Just trying to find something positive about living in flyover country. We also have abundant corn, pigs and cows, which makes for some excellent grub…

While I am anxious to hand out some flyers I have created, my kids' lives dictate my life(which i thoroughly enjoy) and since I am the head coach of a softball team with practices both days that weekend, doesn't look to be in the cards for me to come. Does anyone attend these shows that tout 150 dealer tables?  https://www.veteriproductions.com/trading-card-expo

I have not, but it looks interesting although probably mostly sports and mostly very modern.

It’s apparently going to be 90 degrees on Saturday. Just wondering if anyone recalls whether the Greater Philly Expo Center has adequate air conditioning.
