Oh, now I really want to see pictures! Was there a Peter Parker auto and a Spiderman auto, or two Spiderman autos?

Day 2 got off to a good start with the Card Talk breakfast. I was the lucky winner of a small box of goodies that included a Doctor Who Big Screen card set, some autographs and a variety of UK promo cards. Thanks again to Alan of Enterprise1999 Trading Cards for donating the prize (which was even wrapped in a cloth with the pattern of the British flag.

Back at the show I finished up some trades with Dave, Brian, Chick and and picked up some things from Tom Unique. I think I ended up getting 7-8 boxes from Dave so I should be all set for open that box day. Smile I spent some time chatting with Szym about his purchases and we compared notes on Cult-Stuff’s Propaganda card set as we were both looking for inserts. I ended up getting 2 sets/packs of Propaganda Posters (and the case card and some loose cloth cards), a pack/set of Age of Sorcery, mini-master sets of Vampirella 2 and Red Sonja, a mini-master Classic Mythology set, the Warlord of Mars preview set, a few sketch cards (scan below) and unopened boxes of the Hildebrandt Brothers, Judgement Day, Marvel 1st Covers, Marvel Universe IV, a couple different pinup girl boxes and a couple of the older Comic Images Spider-Man boxes. I also picked up a sketchbook from Axebone... you can't really beat a full color sketch book for $10 - and it came with 3 limited promo cards.

Attendance seemed much higher than for Sunday and there were also a couple of television camera crews walking around. I don’t know how much of the increased attendance was due to the Benchwarmer girls and Twin Galaxies but I’m sure both had something to do with it. There didn’t seem to be much crossover between the video gamers and the rest of the show but I think that it was a different and pleasant weekend for both groups.

Thanks again to everyone who supplied prizes and promos for the show. I’m looking forward to the Pop Art Con in June.

Great reports everyone! I really love your pictures, Elaine, especially the one of Rhi with her name on her head and the ones of George.

I got back from the Show late Tuesday feeling VERY tired as I find it difficult to sleep on planes.

First I would like thank Harris his Mother and Father along with the other NSU team for the very friendly welcome to the Europeans who attended the Show.

They worked tirelessly throughout to make the Show the success it was.

I spent most of my time looking through dealers binders for missing cards from my want and picked up a few.

My first purchase a case/pack lot of West-Authentic Show exclusive packs will post the breakdown in a day or two on the Box Breakdown section.

I was pleased that the Brit Box I put together went down well.

As one of the Europeans who benefitted from Hammer's assistance I would like to state how much I appreciated it as the U.S. does not appear to have heard of Public Transport, not in AllenTown at least.

Yeah, outside of the major cities there is no public transportation. Everything is just to spread out and to many people, thats why everyone must own a car here if you live out side of a major city, or rent one when you travel to locations like these here.

The Merchants Square Mall is also just about the same distance to Newark Liberty as it is from Philadelphia International, so you might consider flying into Newark if you are considering coming, Triple-Frog. Plus you can get some discounted rates into Newark since it's a large airport.

JFK is the cheapest to fly in to, you then can take the A train to penn station or port authority, meet up with someone coming to the show from NYC to get a ride there and back. as well, I would only do this if you were to save a couple hundred less

When I was coming to the USA two or three times a year I always came through Newark as it's the only direct UK-USA flight from my local airport in Birmingham.

I had visited Philadelphia about 10 years ago to see some baseball and ice hockey games before going on to my usual stop in Las Vegas and really enjoyed it.

Visiting the USA is not an option at the moment but if circumstances change I would hope to combine the Philly show into my plans.Until then I will have to make do with seeing you at the NEC Harris Smile .

I drive through Philly from NJ and it takes me about 80 minutes. So from Philly, figure a little less than that.
