Local Card Show: The end of an era

Today, I went to the same card show I had been going to since the blog's inception, up in Moorestown, NJ. There I could always find an ample supply of 10-cent bins, well-priced stuff, and nice dealers. However, today, as I heard from several dealers, was the beginning of the last weekend show for that location. There was some definite melancholy tones in the air, and some already spoke of moving to new locations. However, I still managed to find a nice amount of cards, including some Topps Update.
