The Show Must Go On
I'd like to say that he would want me to continue on posting as normal today, but I knew him well enough that he would not want me sitting here posting. He would rather I be in the recliner with him on my lap, grabbing my hand and forcing me to pet him for hours. I always told my wife that if he had opposable thumbs, he would have been dangerous.
So, that being said, I would like to continue on as normal as I can with my next post from the National card show. It is going to be so tough to show all of the cards I picked up, so I will probably condense them down into the best of the best. I did want to start out with a showing of the Jonathan Schoop cards that I got. The top card is the 2014 playoffs patch/auto of Schoop and was actually the first card that I picked up. I had just landed, and took the shuttle to the hotel to check in, then I took the shuttle to the convention center and met Max and Andrew. They immediately took me to a table that has the Schoop, and I bought it for $25. Those playoff relics were a "tough get" and would run pretty high, so landing the Schoop was real nice.
The price tag on the back of this 2014 Bowman Inception Schoop auto says $2.00, and I could have very well picked it up myself. I have a feeling that it was given to me by Max at that table, and I hope that he will remind me when he reads this post.
The auto is on-card, and looks amazing. Inception looked really awesome that year, and I wish there were more Orioles in the product.
Speaking of, I was blown away by the generosity of my friends while I was at the National. Between the four of us (Me, Max, Andrew and Frankie), there were cards being passed back and forth, and all kinds of trades being made. Care packages were handed off and lots of fun was had. I think spending the National among friends was the best way to do it. These are some of the best of the best collectors around, and I feel honored that they wanted to spend time with me.
Thanks again for reading, and again, thank you all for the support.
Oh, by the way, today is my good friend, Frankie's birthday. Head on over to his blog (here) and wish my buddy a happy birthday!
