There's a sucker born every minute!

The MJ was purchased hours before our deal at, shall we say, a "discount" (fairly dinged corner and all), so it was nice to pass along some savings to Kiki tha God.

Nicely done. I still find it crazy that there are huge steals to be had at the National.

All these recaps make me regret not going. Is it back in Chicago in 2019??

I honestly feel grateful to have been a part of this thread/National Experience. It has nothing to do with the (incredible) cards these guys own, but the quality of people they are. Thanks for the gratitude Kiki

And for those of you who dont know, now you know

Great recap!

What was your dream card? The one you were looking for 17 years? Sorry I didn't understand that part.

Wowsers, that "3rd person view" from the Nationals has been an outstanding reading (and viewing) experience. Such incredible things to be seen and stuff.

Being from Germany and knowing Kiki and Helge for years now is as great as reading this post. So cool always. Thanks for the read again.

INSTANT CLASSIC! NUFF SAID!

Holy crap.

Probably the best documenting of a show/meetup I've ever seen.

Great stories and pictures.

I concur with everyone else, great write up and looked like an awesome time. I know you posted all your trades but of the 15 cards you brought what did you take home and what is new?
