Thankfully, no snow! Turned out to be a really nice day. Though, I thought attendance was a little light for a Gonzaga show. That being said, my sales were excellent! Definitely an uptick in sales from the January show. I missed the February show due to the aforementioned snow.
It was nice to see Chuck who is always working on a new set. This month, Chuck chose 1963 Topps baseball and purchased quite a few cards. Thanks Chuck! A lot of my regulars made it out to the show and scoured my binders to fill their lists. New customer Ron found a bunch of stuff then came back later and sold me some stuff! Thanks Ron! See cards pictured below.
A shout out to regulars John, Jim, Terry, George, Barry and Matt, always great to see you guys! A new customer purchased my 1954 Bowman Red Schoendienst, PSA 6. One customer seemed a little miffed that I did not bring out my Braves binder. I only have so much room on my table and far too large an inventory so I have to rotate items in and out from show to show. It seemed like the Braves binder was not getting much action latelyl so I held it back this time. Figures the one time I don't bring it, someone wants it!
I brought out a new 1975 Topps Minis binder that, surprisingly, did not get much action. I have probably been doing a '75 Minis binder for the last five or six years and each time I put one out, someone buys the whole thing. I'm sure at some point, someone will buy this binder as well.
All and all I had a really terrific show with great sales and great buys. Unfortunately, I have to miss the April Gonzaga show because I am setting up at the Ohio Sports Collectors Convention. I will be back for the May show. In the meantime, come see me on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at the Four Points Sheraton, 5311 S. Howell, in Milwaukee, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free admission! Two free packs of cards for everyone who attends the show!!
