    On a 3 day card card show, which day(s) do you go?

    Curiosity strikes me, as well as opinions to help my own indecision. Typically, I think I like to go on Friday night.. Because one, I'm anxious and lack patience, and two, first pick!

    When do you prefer to go? Friday because you may feel the same as me? Saturday to catch the show during "prime time"? Or Sunday for last minute deals and a better chance of haggling? Or whatever combination of days or your own feelings.

    Shows coming up here in a couple weeks and I just don't think I can wait any longer than that Friday night, especially since I'm finally going with a nice amount to spend. So anxious haha
    Please take a look at my blog http://baseballpackaday.blogspot.com - rather self explanatory, I'd love any thoughts, comments, or opinions!
    Always looking for good pack deals and/or donations!

    How close is it? Does it charge admission? When I lived in MN they had 2 day shows all of the time and I usually went both days. The only 3 day show I remember I went all 3 days.

    If it is a decent sized show (250+ tables) I go all 3 days. Smaller shows I go Saturday.

    Friday has the best selection
    Saturday has a good selection
    Sunday the steals are gone but prices are blow outs depending what you're looking for.

    Ideally, and this is strictly speaking of a 'what if' scenario, I would obviously prefer to be there early on the first day to sniff out all the good deals and get there while opening stock is still in tact. After that, I would also venture in on the last day to get in on any clearance deals some may be having just to make some last few bucks before leaving. But if I had to chose just one day, it would be the first.
