I've flown to Toronto a few times just to go to the Expo, so I wouldn't take a critical eye to the sausage guy or any other small deficiencies. You've got a great thing going! As the youtube video states, it's the best show on the planet for hockey card collectors.
The chance to get to know guys like Bobby or big-time dealers like Harvey, Len, and Gerry has really helped me understand the hobby better and give me access to buying opportunities I would not have otherwise had.
Can't make it this time around, but I look forward to hearing about the highs and lows from forum members who to attend.
