35th National Sports Collector Convention in Cleveland 2014(who is going?)
if anyone wants to set up at the Nationals and share a booth with some fellow SCF'ers feel free to drop me a pm.
I figured I post a thread to see who will be going with a few questions.
Are you going for 1 days or 4 days?
What your purpose in attending (auto guest, bust some cases, meet certain friends, see a
certain dealer, catch a ball game, etc)?
What the best pick up you ever had at a previous National?
If you will be attending post here and I will create a list of SCf members contemplating going. Members then can see who will probably be attending as the event approaches. Always nice to meet members from the SCF Community. Feel free to drop a pm to folks that might be attending to help in locating things at the show, sending a note on a table with great deals, sharing a hotel room, going to a baseball game, etc.
SCF will be set up at Booth 128P.
