Some card from the previous National

I just received the last Sapphire Chrome card I need in the  mail for my Phillies team set today! Once I get those scanned I will post them up. They are super shiny. I was able to piece together the team set by buying lots off of people and then got the last card in a PWE. I wasn't able to find anyone selling full team sets. The price of a box was skyrocketed so I wasn't paying to open them.

The last National I attended was 2016 in Atlantic City. I live in driving distance so it's much easier then getting to Cleveland or Chicago (although both of those are technically drive-able its just a much longer ride) I spent Thursday and Friday there with my wife and had a great time. I met Donovan McNabb and spent all of my money on cards. The prize being this one of course ..

I still consider this card the centerpiece of my collection. Very thrilled I was able to find it and not even from a dealer. One guy selling and trading cards to a dealer happened to have 3 of them and he was kind enough to sell me one.

I'm not sure if I have 1 big big card I want to go after at this time. I always wanted the Griffey/Mantle dual auto from 1994 Upper Deck but I think the price have grown a bit too high for my tastes.

I'm still working on various Phillies team sets from the 50s, 60s and 70s so I'm sure that will be a focus.

The reason for this post is that I just booked my hotel room in late July to go to the National again this year! I plan on attending Wednesday (hopefully I think you need VIP tickets?), Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Probably leave to go home sometime on Saturday.

After 2 days there last time I saw a lot but I'm sure I missed some stuff. Spent a good chunk of time asking if dealers had the NNOF card. Most dealers said they wish they had it and if they did they would keep it and got the occasional one that would tell me a story or when they had it in the 90s. I do like a good story so I didn't mind that at all.

Getting excited for Baseball, Fantasy Baseball and the National!

Thank for reading!

  1. I'm planning to go this year but just for one day, and I don't know if my wife will want to go with me or not. Do you need a VIP pass? If the admission is complicated and/or expensive I'm not going to go.
