I think Hammer to took this one to prove that he made it to the show. Either that or to show that I made he and Graham put up the banner!


Graham did such a good job putting up the banner that he gets to come back every Spring and Fall to do it again!

If I took it there was a blooming long time delay on my camera

Graham did such a good job putting up the banner that he gets to come back every Spring and Fall to do it again! Enough of this Graham fan club - I did just as much as him!!!

Well, after what seems like an age, here's my report. Sorry it's late, sir Big Grin

As a first time visitor to this show, I was warned not to expect too much as I'd already experienced the mammoth that is San Deigo. Believe me, if it's cards you want, this is the place to be.
I, together with Hammer were press-ganged invited to help with the set-up on Friday. How could I say no, especially as it gave me the chance to have a butchers at the goodies that would be on offer on Saturday? Very good move, methinks Thumb Up First person I came across was Tony Sacarellow who greeted me with a handshake, smile and a look of a man that can smell a fresh dollar a mile away Big Grin A good start, and it got better meeting Tom Breyer again. His display of 'The Tudors' was so impressive that the set hadn't crossed my mind, but suddenly, I wanted them all! I took the oppotunity to introduce myself to Axebone and Sean Pence while they were setting up. And to work...which didn't take long until the banner for outside suddenly appeared. With Hammer and Harris, I helped with the erection (oo-er missus). With all the grace of the Stooges, it was job done and stayed up all weekend. The Tosers had invited the helpers (loose description Big Grin ) to dinner that night. Kebabs. Not the greasy pitta bread mound I usually end up with after a night on the lash, but a feast of different plates of dips, all of which were new to me and varied between gorgeous and shredded sock. Each to their own. Back to the Hotel to meet up with Batman and his lovely wife. He reckons he's unlucky when it comes to pulling great cards. I think he used all his luck getting his wife Luv You (see Batman's report for this meet).
Saturday
The queue was huge! There was mutterings of not needing to get a two-day pass as it would be Sunday when we got in Wink For me, it was straight to the artist pool. Got some great pre-ordered commissions (see below). Every one was beyond my expectation. Thank you all so much. I was going to have a quick scan of the tables, but everyone had so much good stuff, I had to stop and have a good look. I MET OWM!!! This was one of my best memories of the weekend. Joanna is lovely and I got to hug a legend! Met Sara (more hugs). She possibly has the cutest son on the planet. Great little chap. I was lucky enough to get a Betty Page pack. The talent that is Ted Dastick Jr. is my commission choice. After the show, it was the Casino Frown and then Red Robin Clap It was like a who's who of Card Talk. Absolutely brilliant. Together with the artists, I was in geek heaven. Me and Hammer were the last to leave - an English tradition when there's a beer involved.
Sunday
Great Card Talk meeting. Of all the raffle prizes to win, me and Hammer both got UK cards Roll Eyes Off to the show. A lot quiter that Saturday, but this gave a lot more time to talk to the dealers, artists and Card Talkers. Of all those we met, the manic energy of Kevin LaPore will stick with me forever. Bought a couple of boxes of Tudors (ask Hammer what autos I got Smokin' ). Left about 2.00pm for the looong journey home.
In no particular order, I'd like to thank (where's the Oscar?)...

Harris, for all the energy he puts into the show and making us both feel so welcome.
Roxanne and Marlin for keeping everything in order. Lovely to see you both.
Bill DeFranzo who was so generous with promos. Another box ticked in the 'must meet' column.
Chris Verdecchia whose main aim was to point out items that would make my bank manager weep Wink
Mrs. Batman for putting up with me.
Batman. Wouldn't be a show without Bob.
All the artists who were beyond my wildest expectations.
and finally, Hammer. If it wasn't for Kevin, certain parts of the weekend would have been unbearable. Thanks.

Here endeth my first Philly report.

Commissions...


Axebone - possibly the most organised artist ever Thumb Up



Elaine Perna - too nice for words Luv You



Rhiannon Owens - never mind the great art, I wanted to keep her



Tony Perna - What a great bloke. Exactly how I imagined he would be. This Three-carder deserves to be in a gallery.

Although nothing from Ted Dastick Jr. or Sean Pence, commissions were spoken of. Just glad to be in these gents company.

Best line-up of artists EVER
Thank you one and all.

Very nice ( if late ) report. 4/5

Shredded sock kebabs? Does Delia know how to do these.?

It sounds like you had a fantastic time. All you need now is your luggage. Big Grin

Great report Graham. You were a real trooper with the Mediterranean food. Your description is pretty funny.

See you in the Fall? Smile
