Interested to know how the Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton shows are? Lots of dealers? Lots of vintage? Jim

Hi Jim,

I went to the Card show at the Croation Cultural Centre on Saturday. I had to drag out the g-friend and her sister so I knew I wasn't staying long:-( The show seemed pretty packed with dealers. Lots of new cards and lots of older stuff too. There were a couple dealers selling vintage jerseys which caught my eye. Anyways I ended up buying a box of 05/06 UD SPX. Jean Beliveau was doing a signing at 1:00 but I couldn't convince the wife to hang out for another hour.danm!oh well...next show I will definately be going to solo.

Brock. I don't know what's worse, taking your girfriend to a show or spending about $200 on a new box!! LOL. My girlfriend insisted on coming with me to a show once. She lasted about 10 minutes before she was tugging me to go. Never do that again. I was in a friends shop a couple weeks ago when I got the urge to open a nice shiny new box of cards. Hadn't done it in years. I figured I lost 70% of my money so I just gave the rest away to some kids. Never do that again either. Jim

I was there Friday and Saturday. Got autos from both Howie Meeker and Jean Beliveau. Best Vancouver show I've been to. The signing guests sure beat the likes of Dennis Vervaergart and Tony Tanti :)
