Damn I was hoping it was because you fear my poker skills.

There were 3 guys there. They only had very good things to say about you

The Niagara trip they told me about it. Sounds like a lot of fun especially when you use to play golf but now you guys donít anymore

I don't know their names all I know is they know you and speak highly of you.

The third guy was a big guy who I have never seen. I think he is Greek

Tall guy? Thats Dino. Thats my boy! Great guy, one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. I've been out with him in Niagara, Toronto...even had a couple of nights in Vegas.
the other guy was probably Marcello then.

I thought maybe you would know Dino from poker rooms, Blue Heron/underground clubs. Dino+Tony are excellent poker players, they usually do very well wherever they play.

Yes that is him. Tony said to me did you see a big Greek guy walk in?

I don't play poker alot here. Only time is with John at Port Perry and maybe once at the CNE.

I do play when I travel in Buffalo, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, etc.

So far the highest price paid for the Cadillac of hockey cards (The Cup):

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

Sold for $15,100 cdn.

In case you are wondering how much a tin costs of The Cup:

https://store.401gam...e-order10252017

$775 cdn

or

http://www.dacardwor...ockey-hobby-box

$650 us

or a case of 6 tins

http://www.dacardwor...obby-6-box-case

$3,895 us

In the past the Cup tins use to go for around $400 cdn. The skyrocket in price has only 1 answer. Auston Matthews has really driven the hockey card industry. Nothing like a star playing for the Leafs. I was thinking of getting Otto to break a tin to see what we get but at $775 cdn. I am not so sure. Probably just do the $300 jersey box thing we always did in the past at the Expo.

We have day 1 complete at the Expo.

It was a very uneventful day since the turnout was low. I believe that the fight between 2 guys in the industry is going to get nasty and another show is going to start to go against the Sportscard Expo.

Otto got to the Expo latter and the amount of people asking me where he is was non stop. What no one is happy to see me?

The dealer across from us had to get an ambulance. The father fainted and had to go to the hospital. The son (he must be around $25) took over. I went over to see if the Dad was doing okay and he said he is fine but needed some tests to be done at the hospital.

Sales were low for me but I heard others did well. Hopefully the sales pickup tomorrow. I am bring my younger daughter since she loves to be the cashier.

The best part of the Expo was what came up to me from guys looking to sell their cards. I brought alot of rookies (400 cards) and paid $300 for them. It is a nice deal and I am reloaded for a few years. Sold 50 of them for $100 already on Friday.

Another lot came to me and it was only McDavid. Had a good discussion with the seller and he said one dealer offer him $1,500 for the lot. I offer him $2,000 and he thought about it but turn it down. It was a good offer but he did not bite.

One guy from Detroit came by and he had some very nice stuff. We settle on this 2 card lot to me for $375:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

and

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

One funny thing that happen, my partner for the booth brought this card for $85:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

and in 2 seconds sold it for $120 to a buyer standing next to him.

Than this guy came over with alot of cards. He kept complaining about how he can't sell his card for $12,000 and it was a waste of time for him to come to the Expo. He dumped a bunch of cards on my showcase and I only wanted to buy his 3 McDavid rookies:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

He wanted $900 for the lot and I offered him $750. He than got angry at me and left in a huff. I had no issue with giving him $900 but when someone is rude, you know where you can go.

One of the last guys who came by was this older Chinese guy. I gave him a nickname of Fu Man Chu. Anyways he asked us if we were buying and he said would we be interested in this. He shows us 2:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

I was like I don't see too many since people are hoarding them now. My partner than scares him off since he wanted an offer from us so he said $200 each. He looked at us and gave us a stunned look. He than walked off and will not talk to us. He than came back 3 mins latter and flashed $450. We than said you didn't get $450 for both Crosbys? He said no, only 1 and flashed the other one. I said will you take $400 and he said no, he wants $450. I looked at it and the corner was slightly dinged but I gave it to him. Another dealer came by and offer me $650 for it and I said no. I want $850.

In the past I use to complain that no one asks me if I want to buy anything, not tonight. Love seeing the cards.

Day 2 of the Expo.

The guy decided to pull out of the trade we discussed Friday night. I actually thought it was not a good deal for myself but I gave him my word I would do it. So when he said no, I was fine and thought thank god.

It was a pretty uneventful day. Saw some more nice cards come across the booth. It was actually a busy day people wise but sales were okay. However I am only at 40% of my target and Sundays are always slow business days. Oh well.

I did purchase some more cards (can't help myself). I got 2 of theses:

https://www.ebay.com...DUAAOSwBjdZ-eKd

and 2 of theses:

https://www.ebay.com...=p2047675.l2557

The 4 card lot cost me $320.

My goal for tomorrow is to not purchase anything but if something was to come my way it is going to be extremely hard not to buy it. The best part of the Expo so far is my garbage cards are selling well. It is just that my high price cards are not selling.

Got to hit the bed early tonight. Otto and I are going to meet a dealer for breakfast
