The SOS (and shows in general) from a visor perspective

Article about: I have received multiple emails/pms asking me if I was going to the SOS, and if not why not. So, I decided to put my reasons on the forum (and my opinions are my own). I used to hit all the

    Is it true that fakes linger around even at the shows?

    Unfortunately, I would say at least 25% of items for sale are fakes....

    One must be as careful as always. Some great stuff but many fakes among the goodies.

    3 days away from work is just too great a price to pay to just go there for socializing
    If one were honest with oneself, those 3 days are really "weighted" to start on Wednesday/Thursday - and for a reason . . . which one could argue, may not necessarily be for the benefit for the Working Man collector. Imagine if any such event didn't start until Friday [move-in and all] - and didn't end until EOB Sunday . . . don't you think that would do much for turning around the scene? For many years, I remained oblivious to the reasons for why Dealers moved in on Wednesday or Thursday - and then had their own "private party" before the Public were allowed to enter the arena . . . but as time has passed, I've come to realize why that is. For a Member to know that because of the way a show is scheduled - or even to be limited in access in a way that only allows those with privileged status to reap these benefits - eventually became a big turn-off. As a person that has to work for a living, there are certainly times when it is difficult to get away from work in the middle of the week. Bailing out on a Friday . . . well, that may be a little more reasonable - but as the schedules for these shows are currently arranged, we all know by then, you've just missed out on all the [reputed] "action" . . . and once again, for the Working Man, that can eventually become a significantly disappointing thought.
