regional coin shows and don’t forget
about gun shows this applies here as
well, for example we have a show about
every few months at the sports center
I have been going to for years when it
started was 100 percent all guns ammo
and accessories now that has been cut
in half, now there even selling dolls, dishes and makeup !! seriously at a gun
show, I guess I could always take the
doll out and shoot at that…LOL
I think they try to attract a larger audience by adding more stuff or
they don’t have enough sellers
to begin with…
Not that all would necessarily pay attention to the order, but instead of being named a coin and card show, this one should rename itself as a card and coin show.
Do people that collect coins, collect baseball cards to ? I collected baseball
cards when I was about 10…LOL
Of course. My point was to imply which constituted the majority by listing it first in the name of the show.
This was on the web
@russell1256 saw it named differently, or remembered the name differently.
Last October, I drove up to Oklahoma (~3 hours) for the 2nd day of a two-day show at the Moose Club lounge.
When I arrived about an hour after the show opened, the parking lot was a clue...
Asking the bartender I was pointed to the back room. When I got inside, there was ONE dealer - bullion.
I called the promoter on his cell (he was NOT the dealer) and he said "Oh, yeah most of them went to a show in Arkansas".
The local mutt was sad too...
The promoter was not at the show? Did it not occur to him to cancel the show, knowing he was only going to have one dealer there?
The dolls is for the kids and the makeup is for the girlfriend or wife. That way you won't go home empty handed and make them happy
The dishes are used for target practice!
There's one show per year that's held in one of the fairground's smallest venues, and it's got no more than a dozen dealers; I usually don't bother with that one any more. The June show (Raleigh Money Expo) is the biggest show I get to attend, and it's next weekend. Can't wait!
@-jeffB (edit:added callout) Please check the RME for sample slabs for me. It misses the cutoff for the 3rd edition of the book, but the club has put together an astonishing range of samples over the years - most denominations and US mints. I use them as a test subject for the book generation code!
Knife, Drawer, Sharpener - one of these things is not in use...
Sports cards are one of the most profitable collecting industries these days. Don’t ask me why. Plenty of YouTubers make their entire LIVING from opening boxes, grading, and selling. It kind of disgusts me
collected way back in high school, only
one grading service back then ( Beckett )
but ramped counterfeiting ruined the
industry, the main was the 1963 Pete
Rose rookie card, it’s amazing what people will do to make a buck
