Philly Show Returns this Weekend
1981 Fleer #645 Triple Threat Schmidt, Rose, Bowa
Team Phungo will not be able to make it to the next edition of the Philadelphia Sportscards and Memorabilia Show which is happening this weekend.
I have always enjoyed the show and encourage anyone interested in card collecting to attend. Although it appears that the show is becoming more and more an autograph show then a show for card vendors.
There is a BIG 1980 Phils Reunion going on for the show with roughly 20 members of the 1980 World Series team scheduled to appear either Saturday or Sunday. The Big Names are all scheduled to be there on at least one of the two days Carlton and Schmidt on Saturday - Pete Rose on Sunday.
I tend to think Autos at these shows are a bit pricey - but I think when you stack him up against the rest of the field Steve Carlton at $39 is the best deal of the big names (Roy Halladay is $149). I like Keith Moreland at $12 in the bargain set - I don't think he is really affiliated with the Phils right now and he would be one of the tougher ones to get in person. The complimentary auto with the weekend admissions is from Philadelphia Eagle Trevor Laws.
Admission to the Show is $8 - You can usually get $1 off coupons in the weekend Philadelphia Papers.
