Good luck with Show

The hobby needs these events

My guess is that this is the largest attendance of dealers anywhere this year.

No, I believe the Great American Stamp Show (GASS) had more dealers in Cleveland. This number is actually down a few from the number Chicagopex typically has. It's one of the larger regional shows in the U.S.
