Second, a report on the Richmond Hilltop Mall card show.
The show is held on the bottom floor, with most of the dealers set up near JC Penney. If you've been to other mall shows in the San Jose area, or the Tanforan shows, you have an idea of what you'll find. Max was there (it's his show), with his usual cards, photo plaques, etc. There was another dealer with a large bit of football, but the other sellers had non-hobby stuff - some good Christmas gift ideas, certainly, but not many cards.
I arrived around 11am, and despite it being Black Friday, I had no traffic/parking problems. If you're in the area and want to see what Max has available, swing by - but it's not worth a long drive. The show returns December 13-18, and hopefully there will be more card dealers.
I'll show you my finds later. I spent $19, but my money was well-spent. I also picked up a Value Box which you'll see sometime soon.
