Poll Archives: Is admission to the National Card Show worth $18?
It looks like readers think that $18 is too much to spend for admission to the biggest card show on the planet.
Each year, thousands of collectors flock the National Sports Card Collectors Convention and drop $18 for one-day admission or up to hundreds for a VIP package. However, with the rising cost of almost everything, collectors now have to rethink that price.
I was unable to attend the show in Chicago this year, but I do know that the $18 charge was a good enough for the Cleveland show of 2007. If the show comes back to Cleveland in 2009, I plan to be there.
I think the biggest problem comes in when collectors from out of state spend money on a plane ticket, rental car and hotel or all the gas and a hotel, it is more of an annoyance to pay $18 at the door to a card show.
I would love to hear from some of the people who participated in this poll. Why did you choose yes or why did you choose no?
