My family took a quick weekend trip to St. Louis this past weekend to catch a Blues game on Saturday night. Other than the Blues losing the game 17 seconds into overtime, it was a fun night. We had seats 2 rows off the ice that included an all you can eat buffet. My son received a pre game warm up puck, and we all received a nice Blues hooded sweatshirt. Best part was I only had to pay for 2 tickets, as the other 2 were part of an early Christmas bonus.
Of course I planned the quick trip knowing there was a card show on Sunday. This was the first show I had a chance to go to since this July show. I did not pay to get an autographs this time, but still found quite a few things for my Cardinals collection.
After spending close to 2 hours going through the dime and quarter boxes, my son was ready to move. We found a few autos and game used in a $2 box that are for other team traders, but did make one more purchase.
I am not for sure if the dealers were looking to move inventory before the end of the year, or just running some holiday deals. Either way, it was a great show. I will have to remember to hit up December shows in future years.
