Collectors’ Showcase of America Show – 11/12/11

Today I attended the Collectors’ Showcase of America show that was held at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center which is in Oaks, PA.  After hearing a few good things about it during the last Philly Show, I decided to give it a shot.

The layout is nicer than what the Philly Show has turned into.  There is a lot more space and it reminds me of The Fort Washington Expo Center or The Greater Reading Expo Center.  When I arrived, it wasn’t that crowed.  But I got there shortly after it opened.  Some of the dealers I talked to were disappointed because people weren’t spending money.  As the day went on, more people showed-up.  The food is better and you can at least close the bathroom stall doors.  The walk in is much shorter too.

I saw a lot of nice singles, mostly vintage, but I did see some dealers that had modern stuff.  Nothing really jumped out at me though.  Every time I see a glass case filled with Phillies stuff I’m hoping to find one of those Harry Kalas cards I don’t have, but rarely does it happen.  I picked-up some supplies and three boxes.  I was hoping to find some 2011 Leaf Valiant and 2011 Leaf Pete Rose Legacy, but didn’t find any.  Instead I bought a box of 2011 Leaf Sports Icons, 2011 Leaf Metal Draft Baseball, and 2010 Panini Century Collection.  I still have to bust the Metal Draft Baseball.  I’m hoping for an Ichiro redemption.  I will blog about what I pulled later this weekend.  Marty’s Sports Card Exchange usually has the best prices on wax when it comes to these shows.

I got recognized again by a Sports Card Info reader.  I always find this funny.  Its a small ego boost 🙂  That’s something I never thought would happen when I started Sports Card Info.  I’m sorry I didn’t catch your name, but if your reading this please let me know what it is an how you made out at the show.

Overall, I thought it was a good show.  I don’t think I’ll get there as early next time.

JIMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This has to be one of my favorite in-person autographs I’ve ever gotten.  As soon as I heard that Jimmy Rollins was going to be there I had to go.  This is his first show appearance in 10 years.  I hope this isn’t one of his ways of saying goodbye to Phillies fans.

Vince Papale – Former Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver

Papale was the inspiration for the movie Invincible starring Mark Wahlberg.  I think he looks like Tommy-Lee Jones.
