Greetings from Baltimore!

Our first day at The National was a success. I entered the scene late Wednesday night along with Tim and Steve Hollander (both of whom opened the show Wednesday night). Arriving into Baltimore-Washington International Airport as I type this are Jeff Maeda and Geoff Holland.
Thursday at the National

Among our many show specials, the one that seemed the most popular today was the free shipping on drop-offs. We took in many full shoebox-style boxes, as well as dozens of 400-count boxes. With Geoff heading up our shipping department, we’ll get going tomorrow on packaging the cards we’ve received thus far so that we can ship them back to our warehouse and begin processing.

The Orioles nearly blew a 4-run lead late but got a walk-off hit up the middle by nine-hole hitter Cesar Izturis for a 5-4 win and a series sweep. Apparently Buck Showalter has made an immediate impression on this ballclub!

On Friday, it will be the only day that all five of us will be on hand so stay tuned for another update…
