I set up a table at the Legends Sports and Games card show yesterday. The show was held inside of a shopping mall. The weather was cold and soupy in the morning. Perfect for a card show.
OK. Enough moaning about the lack of shoppers.
I donned my Kaline jersey and was ready for a big day. The show was scheduled to run from 9am till 5pm. Although one thing I saw somewhere said 10am. Either way, I was ready early. My Dad met me at 8am. We had the table ready by 9. Good thing we were early. There were guys perusing my stuff as early as 8:30.
A couple of fellow bloggers made there way to my table. A couple of Greg's. Nearly Mint and Wolverine Musings. Thanks for swinging by fellas. I met a bunch of other nice people. A couple of boys looking for Larry Fitzgerald cards, a dude with a Costanza wallet raided my dime box to the tune of $9 bucks, and a guy that bought every Kaline and Verlander that I had. If not for that big spender, I would have just broke even. Remember the sick guy from Target that I wrote about a while back? He was there. Fortunately, he didn't bring his diseased self over to my table.
All in all, I had a good day. I would have liked to sell more of my auto's and higher value cards. The stuff that was marked at a buck or less flew off the tables. I didn't make a killing, but a day hanging at a card show beats real work.
