Man Cave card show recap

Yesterday, we headed up to Stanton, MI for the 2nd annual Man Cave show. We were both looking forward to this show as we have a good working relationship with the guys. You may remember the 60 something boxes that they gave us to sort and sell for them, plus we buy and sell to each other all the time. Even though they are 2 1/2 hours away, we see that at a few different shows as they travel quite a bit to buy or set up at shows. Plus a few other dealers we set up with were going to be at the show so we were looking forward to it.

I wasn't sure about the set up as they put tables around the outside of the gym with the middle of the gym wide open but once the show got rolling, I think it worked well. It spread everyone out a bit instead of being crowded together plus I think it helped all the tables get seen since you pretty much had to go all the way around to exit. We were placed right in front where you walk in, across from the Man Cave tables and right next to Reckless Cards who we've been getting to know since the last Shipshewana show.

We brought a bunch of blasters and we marked off our $1 boxes at 50% and we sold a bunch of both. We're trying to weed out the $1 boxes because we are debuting all new boxes at the Shipshewana show towards the end of May. The 50% off boxes will keep showing up until then so hit us up for some great cards at half off.

The Man Cave had a couple of autographs guests including their co-owner, former NBA'er, Chris Kaman. We talked a little with him at our table and he sent over an autographed card to us that we had given to the Man Cave awhile back.

He seemed like a pretty good guy in the short time we talked to him. We appreciated the card. It's going into the Sluggo PC.

We didn't do a ton of buying but we did do a little bit.

The Reggie Wayne auto is #'d 5/5 and the Ronald Acuna jr auto is #'d /100.

The rest of our pickups.

After the show we headed over the their shop to pick up some cards. I mentioned above the 60 plus boxes of cards they gave us. We've gotten rid of the majority of them. I want to say we only have 6 more boxes left. Well, they had a few more cards that they wanted us to get rid of for them.

Like I said, just a few. A ton of binders that we'll have to pull all those out of and put in boxes. Needless to say between our show stuff and all this stuff, we had borrowed a van for the trip and it all barely fit. We'll be busy for awhile.

Come and see us next week in Huntington, Indiana. It'll be our first time at this show as well. The pick-ups up above will be debuting at that show so come see us for more blasters, and we'll refill the dollar boxes and they will be marked down 50% off.
