The Card Show was a HIT!!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

The turnout at this year’s first CardsFX.com ala Tex card and collectible show was a hit!

The dealers did some selling, the buyers did some buying and both did some trading. As advertised we kicked off the event at 1000hrs Saturday 30 January at the NH Hotel in Viernheim. We had dealers from all around Germany that set up and brought their finest collections. There were a variety of cards and collectibles ranging from the latest rookie sensations cards and figurines to high end memorabilia cards such as an Exquisite Dual Autograph card of Michael Jordan and LeBron James, that one of the local dealers from Kaiserslautern Ed Wetz put up for sale and trade.

There were multiple niches being promoted during the event. The most popular of course being the Basketball cards, American Football cards, Hockey cards and multisport figurines.  

As promised we did our very first CARD WARS tournament. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the rules of CARD WARS let me quickly run through the basics.


You start out with a factory sealed box of cards. Then a little math is needed, the price of the box is divided by an even number of players that intent to play the game. Then all of the players pay their portion of the total price to the dealer. For example a box that costs 80EURO with 20 packs is best divided by 5 players. Each player pays 4 EURO per pack, per round of play. Now on to the rules, the sealed box of cards is opened and all the packs are shuffled on the table in front of all the players. Starting round 1, the dealer calls the round; either he calls for “high” card or “low” card. For this example we will say “High” card. Each player then takes one of the packs from the center of the table and opens their package. All players then review their hand and look for the “high” Common card in their hand.

NOTE: Only common cards are used in CARD WARS, insert, memorabilia, or other cards are not counted.

Once the player has identified their high numbered common card (the poker card) they will then lay it face up on the table in front of themselves. The rest of the cards that are not used are placed face down directly behind the card that will be used for play. Once all players have placed their “poker card” on the table face up, the dealer then reviews all of the poker cards and the player with the highest numbered card “WINS”. The winner then gets all the cards on the table that are face up and the rest of the cards facing down. The winner reviews his winnings and quickly displays the cards that are of most interesting to all i.e. insert cards, rookie cards, memorabilia cards etc. The dealer then begins round 2 and the game continues until all packs are opened and the rounds are over…….

The first CARD WARS game began with a box of 2009-10 Panini Prestige Basketball. We had players involved that were new and some that were seasoned. A few to note were the kiddoes their dads and a few of the local collectors from Mannheim and Kaiserslautern. Man-o-man what a game, there were autographed jersey cards, inserts cards and rookies galore. The big winner of game one was Matt Doyle’s son, he had a lucky streak that kept on going…round after round.

Game two and three were all American Football, we ran with some 2007-08 Topps Chrome as the final finally. These two games were dominated by Timothy Teixeira and Richard Frye. They pulled some the nicest looking refractor cards that we have seen in awhile. The winning hands ranged from silver to gold refractors and everything in between.

The remainder of the show was fast and furious and as the saying goes, time fly’s when you’re having fun.  The boys from Z-Cards attended again and had a super collection of high end items along with all of our friends both military and local nationals alike. Everyone played their part, made some deals, improved their collection, met new friends and in general had some well needed fun. In the end, the event festivities closed with some great special offers or “sonderangebot  ” as they say in German some shaking of hands and the the wave of goodby with a friendly “until next time my friends.”

Well folks as you know at CardsFX.com we will continue to provide you the latest news, updates and information on card collecting here in Germany. Check back often, tell your friends about our community and have some fun. Post your thoughts in our forum!!! The next show will be 27 Feb. 2010 stay tuned!
