Default Topps Transcendent Party

Okay so the weather is bad so I showed up early. As everyone knows Iím a Now Guy/collector so not sure of the hype here...save its Hank MFING Aaron and Iím pretty stoked to be here. Iíve never bought 1 Transcendent card but am here because of a good friend and will post photos as allowed.

No I’m not here for that...I got the ticket for free, no swag for Joe...just an amazing experience. Think MLK day, I fly here to meet the last active Negro league player...kind of awesome if you ask me. I’m sure many of you have met him but for me it’s a first...like meeting a God

I will...I’m here first so perhaps I will spend some cash on these Judge cards...I will say it kind of sucks that these events are kind of wasted on “dealers”...don’t get me wrong some of these guys are big fans but the guys who come in grab their stuff and then bail...not what Topps wants but perhaps it will be different.

Last year there were lots of indivdual collectors and couples (husband/wife, friends,...) mixed in with the dealers/group breakers. I think this year will be much more dealers/breakers but should still be a great event.
Hope you have a blast.

There has to be a lot of dealers because so many companies still have unopened boxes and the invitation was inside again. No way to get to it without compromising the box.

So you have to say, I have X unopened boxes - so I am coming to get X swag bags/door prizes. You see?

I don't know if some left or if they just took the swag back to their hotel and came back. I did not go.

Just getting on my flight here in the next hour. Looking forward to the event immensely. I have autographs from a ton of hall of gamers but for whatever reason have never gotten Hank Aaron. Canít wait!

I wonder if Topps will send prizes to individuals who buy/have cases if they send in invitations?

Not sure but I suspect you have to be here...

Anyway first items are being bestowed in your room.

Enjoy! Would love the opportunity to meet Hank Aaron. Saw him at Braves game this summer when he was honored there and had goose bumps, and I was 30+ feet away, cant imagine meeting him.

That's not how it was last year at all. I don't know of anyone that left early last year. I suspect this year will be the same. I don't plan on leaving early. But I'm local so I won't get there until this afternoon.

I suppose itís just my impression of how the event would go....many didnít even go to the Now party and that is kind of how I thought this would go...I will reserve my judgement.
