Marie and I are preparing for the While Plains card show this weekend. In the New York area, it's one of the biggest card shows around, which happens every couple of months.
It lasts all weekend, but we are going on Friday, the first day of the event. I'm lucky to get out at all this weekend because work is busy and Saturday is my boyfriend's 30th birthday. I actually don't think he cares that I am going to a card show.
Getting Yankee cards is kind of difficult at this card show because they are always priced high. It really doesn't matter what Yankee you are looking for because everyone that goes to these shows is a Yankee fan. So, there is a big demand for Yankees, including Derek Jeter. I normally don't come back from these shows with Jeter cards because the price is just too much.
I find other guys I enjoy collecting or maybe some things I can throw in our eBay store and make a profit on.
The last card show I went to, I bought about 30 cards to throw in the store. At one of these cards shows one guy was trying to hawk WNBA cards to us. Seeing few women in the place, he must have thought we would be interested in such items.
But card shows are fun. I hope Friday will be a good one for us.
