The MAX show 2014

Article about: Patrick, compared to the SOS it's bit all that impressive, but that's my opinion. I was there for helmets and they had basically been picked over by a few big helmet dealers so the great stu

    Already found Larry C and Luke. Also found insanely inflated prices!
    Hi HT, I have heard there are so many repros there too, why does T Whitman let it go on, and other good honest dealers guarantee their items. I know it would be hard to police, but letting the standard fall will be the Downfall of The Max Show.

    It has always been about the money. Why call out a dealer in fakes and risk losing him as a person who buys tables. A few years back, I laughed when they honored a guy who for many years has been known to be a seller and manufacturer of fakes.

    Just got home. Came home with a combat belt for my tunic and a book on tunics. Zero helmets that were worth anything. A lot of normal, run of the mill helmets that can be bought any time of the year. All the great ones were long gone, sitting under a certain someone's table

    Had a blast with Larry, Luke, Tom Kendall and Ivan (stingray). I wish we could all get together more than once a year. I expect to see Tom and Ivan at the SOS. Larry and Luke need to get on board for that show. I'm putting the pressure on you guys

    Had a great time also...went to a dagger party at Lakesidetraders room..met up with Tom Kendall, Stingray Ivan, JRMeda, Ed Sunday, and quite a few other Great Gents in the hobby. At the show I had a great conversation with WRF Member "Wagner".

    Went to an Italian restaurant , something out of Mob movie that looks like time stood still since the late 1950s...music included. Food was excellent. The thugs I hung out with there added to the theme. Helmetone was showing " Mob Hit Deer pics" ....after dinner though...very nice Todd...I ate the cookie by the way

    I did not come home with any daggers..this year..there were many..but none that grabbed my attention. Came home with some reference books and party pin..and alot of great camaraderie memories.

    When you go into these places in search for what it is that you collect..one must focus on study and also with other knowledgeable collectors.

    so one person sharpens another."

    Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak ...............and man I got an earful these past few days from some of the most advanced collectors the hobby 40 + years just by listening. I would compare it to College professors.

    So yes In turn..I did come home with something more valuable than a physical artifact. . Looking forward to it again next year.

    My cholesterol was through the roof !!

    Glad to see you made it home, Larry. Did you eat the cookie on the ride home? "Mob hit deer pics?" Don't know what you're talking about I thought the food was mediocre, but maybe it was just what I had. I was waiting for Gotti to come out of the kitchen and whack someone.
