    Expo show and tell

    Had another great expo, for my PC wise this has been one of the best i the past 5 years or so. Not needing many Ryan cards when I can add the amount as I did bellow it is a huge success. Took the whole family and got there right at opening Friday. Wife came in which hasnt happened since i took her 13 years ago for the first time. Three kids spent the first 3 hours with me before they were to head off to the hotel for a swim. To my surprise my 12 year old son, who has lost all interest in hockey, asked if he could stay with me which was awesome. The two of us hung out till close and it was truly a great time. Next day was just me and my 8 year old hockey loving son, and his enthusiasm for hockey always makes the show that more special. He always knows the right things to say when talking to people which generally means he comes away with all sorts of goodies. Anyways onto the show, ignore any sticker prices its rare to pay sticker at the expo :)


    Some OPC stickers from Norm (trekrun) at a steal a price, such a great guy to deal with. Couple roy rookie year 3 gretzky's and a couple lemieux 2nd year.......down to 15 left to finish all 9 books from the 80's




    Next my side PC, I have just under 1200 different gretzky's which is pretty much equal to my main PC. The 80-81 topps finished the complete run of OPC/Topps base cards from the 80's so it was nice to finally grab one at a decent price. I started collecting suzuki a couple of years ago, but wisely decided not to chase him the way I do Ryan......so just base cards and inserts of him to save on the wallet.



    My master set was finished a while ago but being the super nice guy I am I took wants lists from several local collectors with me :)





    I had read that Denis Chasse would be working one of the booths so I took 3 cards so my kids could each get one signed......he was really awesome and told us no one ever asks for his autograph anymore so he pulled out some cards he had as well and signed them too




    this is my haul from the vip rewards point auction that @scottkoz20 was kind enough to bring up to me, will take some time to sort but after I pull PC cards there should still be lots for sale/trade



    My other,other, other PC is 80's baseball, paid $3 total for these 2 cards which was a no brainer




    wife and kids did the scavenger hunt friday and then Roger again Sat.....will look great framed in his room

    @frankiefives is always a huge help especially with new products, he had the OPC and artifacts for me (opc base as well but I forgot to include it in the picture) always happy when dealing with him. Got the base free out of a "help your self" box and added the jersey along the way. The bottom right card actually came in the mail a couple days before expo. It is very rare to find previous years cards since I need so little, and they are all short prints. I figured that even if I didnt come across a big find at the show I would still be happy with adding this one. Then within the first hour of being there Friday I saw the cup patch auto. I sat there and stared at it for prob 5 minutes, contemplating the best way to negotiate with the dealer. I walked away fairly confident that the card would be there when ever I decided to return, which was about 3 minutes. Started up a conversation, talked some hockey then began the process. Made an offer, he countered. He asked if I collected sens and I told him about my Ryan PC. He agreed on my first offer we shook hands I thanked him 5 times and boom the PC grows.


    @mq13 brought cards for all three of my kids from their favorite teams (sens :) and leafs :( ) if your seeing this thanks again pal they loved them even though roger was more into his candy at the time. I didnt get a pic as they were already into them when we got home.

    Roger took part in the ultra pro kids break. We had done it in the spring and they do a great job, really looking after and spoiling the kids. Forgot to take pics but he came away with another great haul. Which brings us to the final event before going home, the ebay 16 and under case break of series 1. 31 kids signed up and were randomly assigned teams. Roger got Montreal and while not a fan of the team, this is the team we wanted as we really wanted to add a Suzuki canvas. The guys from dolly's ran the break and they were awesome the kids were having a blast and getting so excited when one of their cards was pulled. took place on the main stage and they had 2 video feeds up for the kids to watch. Roger didnt hit suzuki but still did great:
