Missing The National

My desk is cramped, my chair is uncomfortable and my computer is too slow. These are the things I have to grapple with at work. Usually I don't care, but on this day (heck, the remainder of this week) these faults become amplified as I daydream about the going-ons at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. Man... am I envious of the collectors in attendance.

Since I am missing the fun I figured I would cruise the internet and live, temporarily, through the eyes others. Check out some of these links and pics below from the yesterdays preview day at The National.Heck, there was even an arrest on the show floor today. Apparently, he was selling jersey's he falsely claimed were worn by Pujols, McGwire and A-Rod. UPDATE: Here is the story from Sports Collectors Daily.

Here are some photos I grabbed from twitter. If you want to check out what other collectors are saying and showing off on twitter go here, #NSCC.
