No onsite grading as of yet, however, there will be some promo cards in the charity auction that were graded by Beckett last year.

no stir fry, but can offer a GREAT Breakfast Buffet on Saturday morning- only 15.00 per person all you can eat! And it benefits the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation to boot!!!!

No tattoo artist, but plenty of tattoo artwork to look at!

What more can there be ? You may ask.
Well,...............

NO Stir Fry pro is a real heart breaker.
After all, Missouri invented stir-fry right along with stir crazy and reading between the lines.

Twak LOL

I did a show once with a tattoo artist.

After 3 days of solid inking, I was tired of the sound, that much is for sure.

And I'll grade your cards on site if you like. I can't be any worse than the "professionals" when it comes to grading non-sport cards.

Attention Attention!
Everyone is going to want to carry their program book down to Albertos when they eat lunch and or dinner this year!!!!
Here is the sneak preview from the ad that the Holiday Inn placed inside the program book.

The offer is as follows :

25% off your total Alberto's food bill when you show them your 2011 CECE program book with their ad.
Alcoholic beverages and the charity breakfast are excluded from this offering.
And the discount is valid for the WHOLE Month of September 2011!!!

This is a GREAT way try their new menu, and it is very good, and save a bunch of money on top of things!

YEAHHH!!!

Paul,

What time would the breakfast begin? I see early birds will be allowed into the show at 8:30. Also, do kids under three eat free? I need to know if I should bring my real driver's license or my Chicago one. Big Grin

Paul, I am coming to Chicago that weekend and I chose that weekend for obvious, selfish, card-collecting, Paul-loving reasons but I may have to choose between coming Friday or Saturday. I have a rudimentary plan that gets me there both days provided I can pursuade my son to attend the Breakfast. Now I see that I need to plan my timing strategically around the availability of Promo cards. Life is tough! Planning is even harder! Thumb Up

Hi Bill,
Breakfast is Sat am 7:30 to 8:15am,
There will be special prizes given out at breakfast as well.
Unfortunately, at this time, there are no concessions for children under age 3, but I will check with the hotel- good point- thank you!
We would be honored to have you and the family here to celebrate our Grand Finale!

Here's a scan of the promo card I came up with for the show. I'll be giving it out Friday and Saturday while supplies last (only 200 were made). I'll also bring a few of my Boba Fett (P1) cards with me.

The CECE and the Treasure Chest Foundation welcomes famed comic book
artist Jim Steranko to the Treasure Chest of Art Collection!

Be the FIRST to pull Mr. Steranko’s Sketch Card from one of the remaining (50)
Treasure Chests of Art Collections!
A Jim Steranko sketch is very scarce and a well treasured piece.
Special Thanks to Mr. Steranko and David Spurlock of Vanguard Productions for
their kindness and generosity!
Preorder your chest NOW, before the Expo and we can have it ready for you to pick up at the show or we can ship it right to your home!
