The 3rd and last day of the Expo. Usually its the slowest day in regards to sales and it definitely was. My goal for total sales only met just over 50%. However we are not in it to make money so it still was a very enjoyable weekend. It maybe over but we are looking forward to the next one in May.

We did have a scare during the day. I thought someone stole 2 signed 8x10s of McDavid. Luckily they were located on my table because some kid mixed up the pics and we found them in the middle.

Someone did asked me if I wanted to trade my Crosby rookie for this:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

Now I truly believe that this auction is a fake and was bidded up. I think the card is worth maybe $500 and my Crosby rookie is worth $850. Really have to watch out for stuff like this.

I did not have Otto to help setting up and it took me 1.5 hours. Tear down only took 20 mins since Otto was there to help (thank god).

I took Monday off and going out with the wife for breakfast.

Glad you had fund again Wayne. Enjoy your well deserved breakfast!

I would also like to congratulate you on not watching our NFL teams play yesterday in the Fitzpatrick-McCown Return Regurgitate Bowl, as that might have been the worst display by 2 QB's I have ever seen in a football game. Both of them playing against their former teams did nothing for their motivation I guess, since both sucked bad.

This is not my card. It is a very good friend of my and he doesn't need the money:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/352209247391

I already got an offer of $300 for it within 30 mins of listing the card.

If anyone had the insight to purchase Mathew Barzal at the start of the year for $2-$5, you would look like a superstar:

or look at how low Nathan Mackinnon dropped in value:

but he bounced back

Just wrapping up our cardshow today. It is a sad day since we are probably done with this location since the owners are more into taking in refugees than running a hotel. So I must find a new location.

Sounds like they have their priorities in the right place!
Long signatures are really annoying.

I got us a Legion hall. It is not as nice was the Radisson but it suits our needs. Vendor tables are smaller and also the room. The positive is a full service bar and we have a location that we can guarantee dates into the future. Got to make sure Otto doesn't go crazy at the bar.

I had a conversation with a friend who knew someone who wanted to sell his hockey collection. I had a talk with him and he said he just wanted to get rid of it. I told him I would look at it and give him a very fair offer. He said he knew that I had to make something off of it and he is fine with that.

So at our cardshow I sold a few things (around $3k). I see the guy on Sunday and look over his stuff. I give him my honest opinion on his stuff and than we talk dollars. I gave him a firm $3k offer and he turn it down. Wanted $6k. Told him I could not do that since the cards are older and it is alot harder to move. He comes down to $5k and I said no. Than he says maybe I can find him a collector who wants to pay that and not looking to resell them.

I thought why did I come over? I sold my cards so I can give him a good offer. Now I wish I didn't sell my stuff at the cardshow.

As reported by Darren Rovell, this card sold for $250,000:

Why did I get into hockey cards and not football cards?

Hi Wayne, I was curious what kind of protective cases you use and/or recommend for Upper Deck "The Cup" cards, as they're so thick. I've been getting really interested in these cards lately, and I'm trying to get my hands on a few singles on Ebay but I want to be ready to protect them. Really thinking hard about buying a couple tins as well, they're so expensive but it seems like you can pull some incredibly unique stuff out of them.

Thanks for any advice, hope you're doing well. :)

Laine is really getting hot which means his cards are too. I got 2 of these at the Expo for $80 each:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

Last month you could have brought this one:

The last one sold for:

https://www.ebay.com...ZsAAOSwUUdape-3

I was lucky to pick one up for $125 cdn when they came out.

Rookie mistake.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

Our cardshow is this Saturday at our new location.

I am going around and looking for all of the Mikko Rantanen rookies I can find. I think they are seriously undervalued

The reason I am saying this is because I also thought Andrei Vasilevsky was undervalue and just this month he is $50. Last month you could have gotten him for $5

I know you're at a legion hall but which one ?
