Karine's Thoughts

In a nutshell, things I find interesting these days and happenings in our card collecting community!

  1. Nationals Day 3

    Friday was a fairly busy day at the SCF tables, we got plenty of entrants for the SCF give away of the day (Tom Brady rookie) and gave out several packs of cards which all included a business card. Hopefully some of the people we gave them to will come and check us out!

    I didn't have much time to browse, having spent time at the tables and then on the phone with my stupid bank which decided to block my account for unusual activity (purchases in the USA) even though I had told them ...

    We got there at 10.00 am and started setting up Tony's table and the SCF tables, by 2.00 pm we were pretty much ready with plenty of time to spare before the ...
