There is a major card show in the Houston area twice a year. I haven't been to it in a few years
because I seem to always hear about it too late. But this year, I made it to the first one. My daughter, who is always looking out for my benefit, found a flyer for the show at her comics store.
I ought to be able to get a few posts from my trip.
I had exactly one 1952 Topps card prior to this show, now I have three, and one of them is a Phillies card.
I've posted this one before.
1952 Topps #55 Bob Boone
At the card show I got this.
1952 Topps #149 Dick Kryhoski
I also got this.
1952 Topps #221 Granny Hamner
These two cards, along with some other older Phillies cards came from the first dealer I encountered after coming through the door.
The show was at the NRG Arena. You may be familiar with NRG Stadium, where the Texans play (Super Bowl LI) will be there. The NRG Arena is located in what used to be called The Astrodomain. The old Astrodome (no they haven't torn it down yet, nor have they figured out what to do with it yet) and several other convention spaces are located there in a sea of parking spaces. It was a pretty busy weekend there with the card show, an RV show, a home show and something else all going on at the same time. NRG, by the way, is an energy company located in Houston.
