Rate this Entry
Another mall show has come and gone, with a great turnout on Friday and Saturday despite the excellent weather. Twelve dealers in all set up at this high traffic, tri-state mall show. There There were cards, of course, comics, t-shirts, autographed memorabilia and some toys to be had at this three day venue.

There were enough tables to go around for everyone, as well as table covers to keep your boxes and other items placed under the table out of site from the patrons.

Customers got there early each day of the show, generally the regulars, to see what the dealers had to picked up since the last show or the day before in most cases. Most dealers kept busy with at least two to three customers at their table during the peak hours of 3 to 8 on Friday and Saturday, and 1 to 3 on Sunday.

Here is a picture of a card that I picked up in a purchase from another dealer friend of mine, Rich Johnson of All Star Inc.

Here is a picture of one of Rich Johnson's showcases at the show.

All in all it was a really good show put on by young, entrepreneur Nathan Freeman. The news even showed up and interviewed him about the show and the hobby in general.

If you didn't get a chance to get out and see us at this show, be sure to stop by next time, the first weekend in June, say hi and maybe even leave with a little momento from yesteryear. Maybe Sportscardforum can make an appearance at the next one...hint..hint..

Be sure to check out my write up of the Moeller high school show in Cincinnati next week.
