If you aren't aware, a major card show will be in Santa Clara this weekend at the Convention Center. GT Sports Marketing is running a "Football Experience" Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday. Brandon Belt will be signing from $45, if you're into that thing (there are many more guests listed on the site). Admission is $10 on Saturday and Sunday, but I'll be there Friday evening, when admission is free!
My experience with a previous GT Sports show is that there will be a decent number of dealers set up, but it won't be as good as the semi-annual San Leandro show. If you don't go for autographs, visit on Friday evening and save $10.
There are two shows scheduled for next month that I'm currently aware of. One will be at Vallco Shopping Mall in Cupertino, September 17 and 18. The other is the larger Serramonte Mall card show (they take over a good bit of space), September 24 and 25. I've reported on this show before (post one and two), and if getting to South SF is easy enough for you, I recommend a visit (drive or bus from BART - Serramonte has a SamTrans bus hub).
If you're going to GT Sports, let me know! Or if you've been chime in with your thoughts.
