I'm Going To The National 2013

I will be at the National Sports Collectors Convention [a.k.a. The National] on its first full day, Thursday, August 1st, and you can expect many posts and videos about my experience.  Besides the rows and rows of dime boxes, great deals, and oddball items you might never see again, this year's show will highlight some of the highest graded versions of the most important baseball cards ever made.  Arizona Diamondbacks' owner Ken Kendrick will have a portion of his vast collection on display which includes the best possible version of one of the most famous baseball cards ever, the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.  

I've never really wanted a '52 Mantle for myself but that card is a beauty.
