I went to the show last Friday - I am local so it cost $13 to park but am an ANA
member so getting in was no cost. I walked the entire show, not spending too much time anywhere but then again, I am a foreign collector therefore not that many tables have what I am searching for. Yet the tables that I did stop at, the prices seemed high, I think that's because of the cost of the show and to recover their expenses and makes some money too. Of course they all act like they are giving you a super deal. All in all a very nice trip.
I will say that if you can arrange to be a helper to the ANA
during the show (through your coin club or contact ANA
), they give you free parking, entrance to the show and a nice shirt that you can keep besides meeting and talking with so many people that share your hobby interest.
