What is the best way to use VCP at a card show.

I tried using it on my blackberry last week at a card shop. It was brutal.

Is there an easy way to print out reports?

Any suggestions?

You can print out your Want Lists and My Collections to take with you to the show. No values will show up on them but a little go around is entering it in the notes field that is supplied.

On my iPhone I usually dont have any problems looking stuff up.
Could it be a interface issue with the Blackberry?

Bobby, could we get a mobile VCP app?

That is something we want to do down the road. Right now we still have so much to do for this site that we really can't think about anything else. I literally have a todo list of about 50 new things we want to incorporate and hope to get a lot of that done this year.

At the last 2 nationals I have made out a little "cheat" sheet...For example I would write down the players name then the avg for each yr and grade.ie mickey mantle 1952 b psa 1 210.00 psa 2 280 psa 3 350....keep in mind the avg VCP is is averaging the price for all cards with different problems from centering to stains to corner wear....But VCP is a great guide and tool to start negotiating with. This way your not pulling out your phone and worrying about download time.

That is what I will probably do. The only problems arises when I find a card that I did not have on the list.

For all of the above reasons a mobile VCP app would be Golden!
I find it worth the time to brose the VCP site through the Safari web browser on my iPhone, it's painful yes but it can mean a lot of difference $$
