Ephrata Rec Center March 2010 Show Report

The Ephrata Rec Center Show is one of my favorites to attend because it has always had a bunch of Phillies stuff.  Its not the biggest show in the world, probably only a few basketball courts filled with dealers.  Ever since I’ve started collecting I’ve gone to this annual show.  The Ephrata Lions Club has been holding this show for 31 years and it never seems to disappoint.

Its about a 2 hour ride to the Rec Center, and the show opened at 8:30 a.m.  I wanted to get there early because the Lions Club was selling tickets for collectors to get their items signed by Fergie Jenkins.  I arrived right at 8:30 a.m. and my ticket number was 111.  That means at least 110 other people came before me, not counting the dealers because they can get their items signed without purchasing a ticket.  I thought the show was very well attended and the prices on the singles (at least the ones I purchased) weren’t that bad.  The boxes were priced higher than usual, but thats common for this show since there is usually only one dealer that sells a large portion of unopened products.

Fergie Jenkins’s rookie can be found in the 1966 Topps set.  He was also the first Canadian to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

I had a great time at the show, and picked up some good stuff.  Check it out!
