I’ve learned not to bring action figures to a sports card show.
Over the years the show seems to have changed from about 50% cards and 50% comics, to about 90%/10%.
Oh well. I can’t complain. It was a learning experience. Such as now knowing the feeling of kids running to my table with glee. “TOYS!! DAD, LOOK!! CAN I HAVE ONE??” Then, eyes burning through me, they mutter, “No. We’re here for sports.”
Within the first 30 minutes I dropped all my prices, $5 off of everything over $15.
All in all, I sold three action figures and one comic. Better than nothing but worse than my hope of a sale every half hour.
Although there are many toys that I want to rip open and play with, I cannot. l have to sell them.
There are a few flea markets in the area, which I may book closer to the Christmas holidays. I’m also going to try listing them on online classified sites, see if I can offload any without having to pay a commission or table fee.
