Nationals Day 3

Rate this Entry
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 in advance that I was going to the US and not to block it for security measures... I was NOT impressed.

I did get a chance to walk around from 15.30 onwards and spotted some LOVELY Roy Cup cards, which in turn prompted another night or mulling over this serious dilemma...What to do, what to do...The Cup Signatures...The Cup Scripted Swatches? Or even OPC Premier Rare Remnants Gretzky/Roy/Lemieux 33/55? I have yet to make a decision and the show opens in 3 hours...oh dear... I also got to meet quite a few members, including Gomaz and he talked about his Upper Deck experience, I cannot wait to see all of his Cup pictures! Plenty of members dropped by the SCF tables as well and it was very nice to meet them too!

In the evening, we attended the Indians-Tigers game but we had to leave before the end...It got to midnight and we were all very aware of the long day ahead today...I got myself a big foam finger and an incredibly comfortable Indians sweatshirt (perfect lounging around gear!).

Well, that's it for Day 3! Sorry for the delay but the game finished too late to post last night...Today I have an interview scheduled with Chris Carlin from UD, read all about it in the SCF magazine next week!

Over and out!

Today's pickups: 4 Roy inserts (see? I can control myself!!!)

P.S: Richard, Sean and Houng, I have been keeping an eye out for you but so far, no luck really...This really isnt a hockey town unfortunately and while you can find the big names of hockey the ones with a lower hobby interest are hard to come by :(

    Too bad about your account being blocked by your bank. You might want to consider doing what I do when I go to a cardshow--take cash! lol
