Review of Otakuthon 2011 Anime/Manga Convention Show

Well, Otakuthon 2011 came and went in a flash. It was organized by the Concordia University Anime Club and I have to say it was a smashing success. Not to kiss any assess but the staff and volunteers were incredible. We have done hundreds of shows over the past 20 years and we never had any convention staff/volunteers help us unload before the show started. It was freakin’ great!  We are looking forward to returning next year.    Thank you Elaine, the wonderful Otakuthon staff and all the volunteers who helped us out.

Sports Card and Memorabilia Spring Expo 2011 in Toronto

Sport Card and Memorabilia Expo 2011

Another great line-up of hockey stars will be showing up at this spring Expo 2011….Mark Messier, Chris Chelios, Johnny Bower, Yvan Cournoyer, Bobby Hull, Fergie Jenkins, Rod Carew and more.  Show date is April 29, 30 and May 1.

With over 100,000 square feet of convention space, this is the largest show in Canada.  As usual, we will be there shopping.   Last year, we picked up some nice signed Montreal Canadiens jerseys (Jean Beliveau, Patrick Roy, to name a few).   Admission is $12 for adults and $3 for kids aged 6 to 12.  The weekend pass is just $25 and well worth it for a weekend of fun.   We also have some McFarlane hockey figures that you can bring to the show and get autographs.
