Another promo (maybe the last), it's another Eule's Vision promo card with art by Rhiannon Owens



This is their 2023 Series P3.
Exclusive to SciFi Cards, and now the Chicago Show. I decided to have it in the admission package so everyone will get one without having to ask!

SciFi Cards Logo on back, not the show.

1 Per Person, Per Day at the door.
Additional cards available at the SciFi Cards table.

Let's talk Food!

Everyone's got to eat sometime, how about after the show on Friday with a great group of like minded individuals?

We all informally meet up after the show on Friday at the hotel's bar and restaurant, Burger Theory.


They have a great burger menu, plus appetizers and other options. There's a full bar with local beers.

Nothing formal or special. We just kind of take over the place for a couple of hours on Friday.

Hey Ed! I'll be there just on Saturday. Looks like Strange New Worlds isn't going to be ready, but I still need the last 2 Unstoppable Avengers sets. Also a box of Ultra Pro 9 card sheets.

Wolfie, there's still time to make the show if you start walking now.

Don,

Hopefully the new Avengers Platinum 5 will arrive in time. It's on it's way to me now. Really want to have these and the Hammer sets at the shows.

And I'll make sure to load the supply tub this trip. Supplies are easier to find now, but they haven't got any cheaper. sigh...
