National Fifth and Final day

Rate this Entry
Today was the last day of the Nationals and it was quite a good day for all of us. It was less busy than the last two days but our giveaway still managed to draw a bit of a crowd. Debbie Herrmann was the lucky winner of a triple autograph card numbered to only five and ?I must say that her son looked absolutely chuffed.

Today, I had planned to stay at the booth for most of the day however, things did not go as planned...My husband and sister in law who came to Cleveland with me attended the show for the first day and I figured I could use them to get my wrapper redemption pack from Upper Deck. I had bought a box of Upper Deck Series 1 yesterday and saved 5 packs from it to open for the redemption program so I asked them to go over and bust the 5 packs for me. They did and came back with a rather excited look on their faces, they had got a Sidney Crosby Hockey Heroes art card autographed 51/87. Needless to say I was completely over the moon with that and as I am not a Crosby fan or collector, I proceeded to try and flip the card for a PC item.

While there isn't a lot of Hockey in Cleveland, there was still a few tempting cards out there so I had a thorough look at what was on offer and within minutes, my heart was set on a UD Black Dual autograph Game Night Ticket of Martin Brodeur and Henrik Lundqvist numbered 6/10. The owner of the said card was none other than Gomaz and after some time negotiating, we managed to work out a deal. I was absolutely chuffed as my one regret was the fact that I had hardly picked up any Marty during the event. Thanks a million to Jeremy for the trade, it truly made my day!

As I am typing these lines, many dealers have already packed up or are in the process of packing up even though there still is an hour 20 minutes to go to the show. You can tell that everyone is tired and glad that things are wrapping up.

This has been an intense experience to say the least and I have had an absolute blast! I cannot wait to be back and show off my pickups. I fly back to England tomorrow overnight and land on Tuesday morning, you can expect a massive show and tell thread sometime Tuesday :)

Oooops I have been told that I can do a video break of UD Black now so duty calls...Over and Out!
