Yeah, this show is sadly down the road from where I'm from. Too far and too short of notice to head home for the weekend.

Too far for me too this time, but definitely a possibility in the future as my wife's best friend is in Atlanta(actually Powder Springs)!! Any plans for future shows... maybe in the summer??

For me it is bad timing as it is in the middle of HS wrestling season. Would you guys have one of these scheduled for the summer?

I think, for subscribers to this board, a list of dealers would be considerably more beneficial than a list of autograph guests. It seems like all promoters focus on the latter at the expense of the former.

I agree Anthony, FCB seems to cater to modern collectors, is the whole show modern? Would love more details.

Although I have not been to a show in a LONG time, it would be nice to find a show where dealers had vintage at MARKET prices!

Does autograph "guests" mean autograph attenders? I really doubt Michael Vick shows up.

It'd be very nice to see a big regional show in Florida... especially in the winter months.

Looks like Vick has some time now. A list of dealers attending would be great.

Vick is being brought in by Leaf. I'm pretty sure it's a contractual thing for some Leaf products and a paid signing rolled into one. He should be there I think.

There are a good many dealers in the Atlanta area, and I'm almost certain they've been solicited. Vintage may actually outweigh modern at this show. Price point in another story.

Have you seen times for these auto signing anywhere? I am going Saturday (12th) and would really like to add Smoltz if he is reasonable.

I havent seen times or prices. But one of the mods on FCB said Julio Jones and Greg McElroy might be attending the show.
