Philadelphia Sports Card and Memorabilia Show is this Weekend!!!

1973 Topps #166 Terry Harmon

The Philly Show is this weekend September 24-26. The Admission at the most recent show was $8 I think. The local papers usually contain a $1 off admission coupon in the Fri-Sat-Sun editions.

It's not quite the National, but the Philly Show is good size. I imagine most collectors will find something they enjoy. I would estimate there are around a hundred dealers. Lots of vintage, Lots of autos, inserts , Dime Boxes, Junk autos. There are always a couple of dealers selling new hobby boxes and some older hobby boxes - but selection varies.

This weekends show has several autograph signers spread over Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is 93 Phillies Day, while Sunday is Hall of Famer Day.

Among the signers on Saturday are Curt Schilling $79, Darren Daulton $20, Wes Chamberlain $15, and Tommy Greene $12.

Sunday has a bunch of Big Names: Dr J, Reggie, and Andre Dawson @ $149, $89, $59 respectively.

The complimentary autos are Terry Harmon on Saturday and Ricky Bottalico on Sunday.

In past years I have spent a great deal of time at Table 1009 on the map - great dime and 3-fer-a-buck boxes. I will likely be sporting my WBC T-Shirt. If you see me definitely stop by and say Hi.

I'm really hoping to get there either Saturday or Sunday. Looking forward to tracking down some Phillies cards from the '60s!
