YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!
It has been way too long since I last attended a card show. It has been way too long since I bought a baseball card in person…
Well, that all comes to an end tomorrow as I will be attending my first card show since December of 2009 – almost 4 months ago!! WHEW!!!
I have missed the last few card shows in Dania due to other family scheduled events. Held during the first weekend of the month, I had a few months of ‘bad luck’ when it came to my schedule. And now, out of nowhere, the Coral Square Mall, which is located less than 2 miles from my house, has brought back their Saturday card shows once a month. And tomorrow is the day!!
The last time I attended a card show at the mall I vowed that it would be my last one. The dealers were few, and the selection was poor. I have decided to give it another try – mainly out of desperation!! I want to smell stacks of cardboard again. I want to rifle through boxes and boxes of cards in hopes of finding a few gems for my collection. I want to revisit my youth of having fun at a card show. Hopefully this one turns out to be better than the last…
I am not going to take a list with me and jinx myself this time. I am going to simply go and shop for some new cards for my collection. If I find a few cards that fill needs from the mental list I have, cool. If not, no big deal – there is always Ebay or SportLots.com.
I am going simply to go and enjoy the experience of buying cards in person.
And on Monday, I plan on sharing my experience and purchases(hopefully there are a few) with you. Stay tuned.
