Hamilton will also be playing in Cleveland during this time......very busy time for Cleveland!

Friday 7/27: Tennessee at Birmingham
Saturday 7/28: Rome at Lexington
Sunday 7/29: Asheville at West Virginia
Monday 7/30: Indianapolis at Columbus
Tuesday 7/31: Great Lakes at Lake County and Louisville at Toledo
Wednesday 8/1: Show
Thursday 8/2: Show and Bowie at Akron
Friday 8/3: Show and Bowling Green at Lake County
Saturday 8/4: Show and Angels at Indians
Sunday 8/5: Lansing at Fort Wayne
Monday 8/6: Beloit at Cedar Rapids and Las Vegas at Iowa
Tuesday 8/7: Las Vegas at Iowa

We're staying out in Macedonia-- a bit of a drive each day but after driving from Texas, it won't seem like much, and puts us slightly closer to the games we're doing in Akron and Columbus.
This sounds like an awesome road trip!!

Anyone interested in buying a “FURIOUS!!!” T-shirt with your BO username on the back? With enough participants we can probably get bulk pricing and then easily pick out who to avoid at the show

if anyone has any brady to sell at the national... i'll be paying 85-90 percent ebay, which I bet is more than most dealers would be paying. Looking for anything... inserts, jerseys, patches, autos, especially rookies. pm me beforehand or swing by the booth (once I have the number I'll post)

Thanks.

Hopefully that cuts down on the crowds at Cedar Point when I sneak in a day there also.

There's so much to do here that week, Nationals, Indians Games, NFL HOF induction game etc., PGA Firestone Event (last year here in Akron).

It's just so busy and it's awesome but book hotels fast as they fill up. I'm in Medina only 30mins away and I try to go one day when it's here usually sunday.

Hope everyone has a great time and enjoy THE LAND!!

Good lord some of the prices for autos is crazy. $300 for Pujols might be the craziest though. Hard pass on that. Several guys priced at $99 and that doesn’t include the stupid inscription add on.

But you can always count on Strawberry though - $39 any item. Maybe he is the only person that realizes signing your name on a ball is the same as signing it on a jersey.

Where are you seeing these prices? I don't see anything on TriStar or the National websites.

Was able to get Kosar, Joe Thomas w/inscription, Lindor, Kluber, Thome, and Lofton on mini helmets or full size bats for $809 so I consider that a win.
