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.

From what I recall, the weather was mild for the spring show so the notion of air conditioning did not seem to come into play at all.

Others may recall differently.

You should call the venue as some places just flat out refuse to use air conditioning or aren't prepared to fire it up before a certain date.  I know the office building I used to work had this issue, it was outrageous.

It was fairly cool at the Fall show, so I don't recall.  Are you planning on going?

Sorry you left before I got back from eating lunch. I wanted to show you the die cuts I had available. But at least you ended up with one of them indirectly!

Did anyone go to the dinner last night?  The new show is two hours from where I live. I may attend in the future; but the lack of wacky promos helped me decide not to attend this time.

PM sent.

It was also nice to see Dan McKee’s stand again. Cracked Animals PSA 6, two different graded Ratz (one was PSA 5, the other PSA 3). Tandache, plethora of ludlows, and you know the rest. It’s always cool to see stuff that you don’t normally get to see at the Philly show.

And more importantly I got three perfect condition monster initials cards from him for $10! 😂

Definitely one of my best Philly shows in a while, Great hanging out with Matt S, Dan M, Bill C, Joe L, and many other collectors this weekend, wish George W and a few collectors who haven't been to a show in a while could have been there. As the last show back in Oct, picked up a big lot of puzzle pieces and some complete ones from 1st-15th. Also helped out a couple of new friends from FB With a die/cut wrapper, some 2nd Ludlows, a couple of the promo packs, and some of the checklists and single stickers. A delicious meal consisting of chicken, pasta, salad, rolls, beverage, and dessert was served Sat. night at one of the host hotels. Heads up, dates for the fall Oct. show are the 15th/16th.

The show was pretty great.  Lots of vendors, a fair amount of Wacky vendors which was great.  I made some ne deals with shoe, got a few good deals, and went through Matt's huge stash of Wacky's to dig out quite a few stickers and packs that filled a lot of holes.  Overall a great day, especially inside.  It was nice and cool.  Outside was brutal!

I wish I could have been there.  The last show I made was back in 1999 when a bunch of us met at Greg Grant's later and got to drool over his wall of original wacky artworks.  It is however a pretty big deal getting there since I live in FL.  BTW, if anyone has a die-cut wrapper available in any condition I am buying as I have been trying to find one for a while....   8)
