No plan

Tomorrow will be the day that I hit the monthly card show.  With the show still kind of new to me, I've decided for the 2nd straight month to go without a specific plan of action.  I may get there and decide to focus on these...

or these...

or even chase a few of these...

I could also take some time and chase some A&G, Leafs/Blue Jays, or try and snag a few hockey cards from the 80's (another portion of my collection that I want to augment). 

Unlike the show up north where I knew what dealers I was going to hit, and thus what lists to bring, this new show for me is still a learning experience.  I probably will not have the time to hit all the tables again this time, but I'm hoping to find a few more dealers that I can become comfortable with.  There's certainly enough tables there to at least find more than just 1 or 2 to frequent on a regular basis.

After all, there has to be more than 1 dealer there that has these...right?

Helping reduce a want list or two might become part of the no plan plan.

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Can't wait to see what you walk away with. Have fun!

  2. I like the "no plan" card shows. I got lectured once when I said on the blog that I had no plan, but I enjoy the freedom sometimes.

  3. Whenever I go to a card show (which just happens to be tomorrow), I usually never have a plan. I just go with it. It's a lot more fun that way and I can enjoy the show a lot more.

  4. I spent most of my life going to shows without a plan... Sometimes you find some awesome stuff that you might not see if you were focused on 1964 (just to arbitrarily chose a set that you'd mentioned).

    I've also recently become reacquainted with the concept of going in to a show to work on a specific set, and that can be a lot of fun as well... but for me it's usually no plan (or maybe "92 plans" is closer to the truth).

  5. Have fun! Hope you find some cool Blue Jays and Thomes.
