I finally purchased my tickets and reserved the hotel for this year's Hawaii Trade Conference in Florida. Yes, that is the Hawaii Trade Conference in Florida. The show moved from Hawaii to Florida a few years ago. They moved the location due to costs, but kept the name because it has always been known as the Hawaii Trade Conference. I was fortunate enough to attend one of the shows in Hawaii a few years back.
Tony and I (Enigma) will be attending the show. You can get full details
As you might have noticed, my shiny Adviser badge is gone. I have stepped down from the hockey team because I just didn't have the time to maintain the level of commitment a moderator should.

I've been in the hobby since later 2005. From 2006-08 I was a Baseball collector, with a very well worked-on Red Sox PC.
I was first introduced to the world of the hobby being online back in July of 2007.
Signed up on the site "Sports Card Fun", and was a very active member there for about 10 months.
