I went to the Philly Show this past Saturday with my wife. I had texted with Brian from Collecting Cutch
about meeting up at the show. He was there to get his awesome piece signed by Andrew McCutchen and this show isn't a bad drive for me so we always try to go to it. There is a lot of dealers and I always get to see some amazing cards in person. Maybe overpay for a thing or 2 here or there but find some good deals as well. The show has really revived over the past year or so. It was dead for a minute there and I was worried it was on its way out and the promoter has really done a good job bringing people back. It was crazy packed on Saturday. It rivaled being as crowded as it was when the Eagles won the super bowl and a lot of the Eagles players were signing in the March show. It was really cool to see so many people of all ages enjoying our great hobby.
I picked up some stuff as usual. Some old, some new.Other posts will be for that.
Brian and I exchanged some cards. Definitely new cards for me!
The top 6 cards were from National Baseball card day which I didn't have any of so much appreciated for those. The Hamels is a mini from a rip card so they are not particularly easy cards to find. I have a couple Phillies now from rip cards (actually literally 2).
The Negative of McCutchen is a really good looking card. I like these parallels in Chrome
Oh yea he just threw in a Steve Carlton autograph. Ho-hum!
Thanks for the cards, the show was a lot of fun! Glad I was able to video Cutch signing the item!
Thanks for reading!
It was awesome to meet up with you and your wife. You both were super cool to talk to. I am forever in debt to you for videoing the experience for me and am glad you liked the cards I gave you.ReplyDelete
Go figure that Brian would have some extra Cutch Phillies cards :)ReplyDelete
