my "Langenfeld Cardshow 2019" Recap

croatiantwins

Hall of Fame
Soooo, its RECAP Time again”!





Langenfeld Trading Cardshow Number #16 from 11/02/2019





At first, I gotta say a big sorry for taking sooo long for this one- I am like 2 months too late with it, but oh well.

Writing such a big recap, putting all these pics and stories in the right order and remembering everything that happened takes a lot of energy of me, but I think in the end its well worth it 😊



I would only ask you one favour.

Please read this Topic if you have some time, the stories, pics and everything are taking some time and just do not rush here…we are talking about more then 300 Pics!









To get you started- PLEASE take your TIME for THIS!







At first I would like to tell you about 2 youtube Videos that were made about this show!



The first one is a video mix by me (30 Minutes fun ) …to get you hyped…just look at it first :)

Look here:


















The 2nd one is made by a professional youtuber!

Got a request by Sean a couple of befpre the show of a friend of mine, SDean…did not even knew he was into youtube and stuff, be he wanted to make a video about our show and well…here it is !!






















Now lets get it!



As our show gets bigger and bigger EVERY year, my twinbrother Ivan wanted to push me to get it more and more professional…he is a Artist and he told me to get stickers for that Event!



I started a insta page called: “wherehobbyhappens “ , from now on this will be the official NAME of our Langenfeld Card Show…you got the National aka NSCC as the biggest worldwide, from now on you got “wherehobbyhappens” as the biggest in Europe!









At first he helped me to design stickers!







I think like 2500 might be good for the start!







Then Ivana again, had a fabulous idea about me and that I ned a visitcard …maybe that looks like a Trading card…I mean, this is indeed cool as I am seeing those a lot of so many at the National Shows….he wanted to get me something more Unique…something cool.



As I really like to trade with EVERYONE (for reeeal, that’s my joy) I gotta put a stamp in the end of it!





Do you remember when josh from cardboard chronicles made a interview with me ?



He called it:



Kiki - "There's a card out there for everybody" | Cardboard Chronicles 28





There is a card out there for everybody…… this is the thing I believe in and I got sooo many friends, girls and everybody get excited about trading cards in my area- everybody feels and gets it – you might check Joshs cardboard chronicles interview to see why!












sooo anyways, we took EXACTLY this sentence as a headliner for MY CARD….we had the idea to get like a small certificate…a small trade approval everytime I am doing a trade or deal…..with a signature of me…..it in no way seemed to look arrogant but if you read the text its indeed a good text involving my white glove :)





Ivan designed it















You might see more pics of it as you continue reading this…if you are curious how they look in real life- lets make a trade/deal







Its sooo important to preparte yourself for upcoming events..wheter it’s a exam…a party (you gotta look fresh) or just a cardshow!







I have told my guy Chris to come over to get his booth look tested out…he had a table and he wanted to get my advive what kind of cards might be in there and can be showcased.-…so we did that





















So I started to take care of my cardshow cards too….call it a mess!







But then it all made sense….







Everything ready !!





















Then I wanted to make a very small but high quality SMP (self made packs)



I had the idea to have a maximum of 9 Packs and that you are able to get a MJ Fleer RC card…I wanted it to be a good SMP for everyone, that whjy you had 3 out of those 9 Packs winning with hits…





That smp looked like this









Top 3 hits to pull were









All 9 packs combined











And look at thet “kiki Cards” in every pack 😊















So…I was full cardshow ready and very well prepared!







Show is on Saturday….we have THURSDAY RIGHT NOW AND THE FIRST COLLECTORS ALREADY ARRIVED 2 DAYS BEFORE!



Helge

Pip´hoe

And his girl Christina



And Ivan Djukic



Big thanks for IVAN for this warm welcome care package!!°







Hvala ti :)







I gotta admit that I am really blessed and thankfull by the feedback by sooo many collectos worldwide…in grmany, in the USA…I really appreciate it sooo much!



I am receiving some crazy GIFTS and care packages kinda very often and it gives me pure joy, it shows that collectors are looking out for another….its not supposed to be something big – I like the small stuff a lot!



Now, this show has been sooo tremendous and its been overhelming from the start regarding these “gifts” and I do not have words for that!! :)



It started with that Whiskey….but lets see what else is coming……..





So, GOOD MORNING FRIDAAAAY !!!!



1 Day before the show and a National day in Germany, what means that most collectors are arriving today!!!



You might know that I am running a Hotel, right?



For this show, my Hotel has been fullbooked within less then 2 Hours since the announcement…we have special rates (which are more then half less of the real prices) to have a attractive opportunity for EVERYONE to attend our show.

Its not about making the biggest profit, its about getting together with your friends and we are getting bigger….in the last shows we needed to get another Hotel to be a part of THIS since we needed more rooms…..

But this years show killed everything as we have fulfilled not 1,..not 2… but 3 HOTELS in Langenfeld.

You gotta understand that this is the biggest collectors meeting in Europe and collectors from 13 differend countries attended our show (with even my friend Nick from NY again)



So everybody wants to be part of it.



As I am getting the reservations and everything from all collectors worldwide, I have some booked on thjeir real names, nicknames or usernames…I took care of the whole reservation thimng because I can control it and I know the collectors- that’s why I went to the other 2 hotels for the keys early in the morning as everybody will be checked in by me and I want to welcome everybody.



As a matter of fact, this Friday before the show is always a day of full work, especially as the organizer…but oh well, atleast I am surrounded by my friends and collectors :)







Its 9am…..and They are coming













11 am…beer drinking….









By the way…..





Maybe I have mentioned before that I am attending Basketball Camps for Kids in my area since a couple of years…not as a Baller or Coach…but as a guy who gets the kids connected to cards.

In Germany there is still no way to get real sports trading cards in the shops….you can find them in the internet, of course…but most kids do not know about real trading cards as they are not getting in contact with them.





So I wanted to change that and its working…every year there are more then 100+kids and everybody is hyped about cards when I enter the building (if you are checking my insta stories you will know what I mean)



I prepare packs for every kids…incl. autos, jersey, cool inserts or shiny cards (revolution, prizm silvers…) stuff that are attractive to kids!

Jerseycards are always cool…doesn’t matter the player- but if I tell them that this swatch was worn in a NBA game you only hear “ whoooaaa” !!!



So- in Germany I asked other collectors to help me with this and if they do not need any cards, I am more then happy to take them for the kids…



The biggest supporter that I have is Pierre from Kleibercollectibles…he is sending me massive packages with brand new supplies, hundreds of jerseys and autos and serious cards and I appreciate that support A LOT !!





Packages like that









To give you some insight of the camp and the packs…here is a Picture of my guy David aka Beatmode 8you know him if you have read my last National recap) helping me with the packs….



David









I told you about my “kiki cards”, right?

Well, I am doing full name signatures on it everytime- but I got a exclusive “Kiki” Variation for the Kids… :)











Do you feel the realness ?

I have never made an Recap about my Trip of Kobe Bryants last Game or about Dirk Nowitzkis last Game…maybe I will still write that one day…but anyways…me and my brother Ivan attended Dirks 2 last games of his Career in April!



An unbelievable experience !!



Regarding his last Home Game- everyone in thje stadium found some cool items on their seats….a shirt, some paperthings and a exclusive commemortative tickets with a limited numbering…so that’s everyone attending gets a ticket to remember!



There is Jörg, a well known Dirk Nowitzki collector (he has like the first 4 years COMPLETE…and other crazy stuff) who could not attend this event…that’s why ivan and I decided to give one of our tickets to Jörg…..





And well, he was more then happy and surprised about that :)













Dirk Ticket













Shortly after Jörg arrived, JAN came around!



Jan came straight outta Berlin and a well known Nowitzki Collector too!!!



I do not have a pic, but he was the choosen one to receive our 2nd Nowitzki Ticket !!

Gotta catch him from all 3 angles !!































Looking to the left …Meanwhile slizzero 1 was chilling……..









So, ok

Now lets get this!!

Expect the unexpected!

At my last cardshows I am going in without having any real expectations what I am looking for…I want to be driven by the flow…the vibe..and everything…see whats possible….

A very important fact, that I have learned for me is to collect outside the box.

I gotta admit that there are many collectors who are limiting themselves as they are only collecting that and that ….i have been like that too…until I have experienced the cardworld more and more and it started with my very first National visit!

Most tables were just all about Baseball…I do not have clue about Baseball. Its not a big thing in Germany…but from my collectors point of view I am going around from table to table and love to connect with collectors…

Well, 1 year later I have changed my view and learned a lot about the other “forbidden” areas…areas I would have never touched…for example…Vintage stuff- I have evolved like a pokemon and started to think outside that “just kobe / basketball” box…with that being said…I like to be driven and see what might be possible at every show….



At my last show I have received those pairings totally unepected…..



Last Langenfeld Show :



2003/04 UD Ultimate Collection Signature Gold Lebron james /23

2003/04 UD Ultimate Collection Signature Gold Michael Jordan /23





Last National:



2005 UD Cut Signature Babe Ruth BGS 9.5 …numbered 1/1

2006 UD Legendary Cut Signatures Babe Ruth BGS 9.5 ,,,numbered 3/3 (jerseynumber)





Aaaaaight!!!



So here I am again….Langenfeld Show…..looking for that next cool addition to my collection….and then suddenly Jans showed me a card!!





I was like shocked…as I did not expected it at all!!



He mentioned me a price and I am pretty sure I have bought it within seconds!!



Right Jens??



A piece I was totally looking for and it started to make sense now



But wait













At first let me sign the KIKI card first…….























Our deal pic….









As a matter of fact…I have received this Box………





The Original one…..



The real card has been a redemption and that’s how panini send it out!













































We are talking about the very first GOLD card ever produced by Panini!





2011-12 Panini Gold Standard 14k Gold card Dirk Nowitzki 1/1









BOOOOOM !!!



I love gold and this one came by surprise…totally unexpected…but from now on…since Dirk has been in my possession…I got already a card in my head, which is the next one to get…….







But at first





Bobmalone aka ROB had a crazy dope card to support my PSA 1 collection :-O











Psa luzinski 1







Thanks Rob !!!







Aaron talks































Panini











So there was this guy named Kelly…he came with a Beckett Shirt…I think its not a officaly employee but maaan, he is a expert for gradind and sends in cards every month!



He is really checking cards deep and has soo many accessoires to do so!



Kelly Grading





























Maki and filip are breaking













Leon and luka are loading boxes













Flips with his street worn, lost and signed shoes after a drunk party evening

Meanwhile ivan was busy all the time with his paintings…





























Daniel purchased a nice piece !





















Soooo…since I got that Gold dirk 1/1 from Jens…I still had some unfinished business to take care off !!





I went to Helge again and wanted to get another trade done!!



Its been very easy and quick once again……and oh well…..







At first our Trade pic…..















Then my main subject …finally landed !!!









Back











2016-2017 Panini Gold Standard SOLID Gold Kawhi Leonard 14k Gold 1/1









Whoooooaaa !!!!



Not 1, but 2 SOLID GOLDS !!!

Never owned a solid gold before, but since I have them in hand- man, that’s a crazy serious gold card!!



I really love them!!!





That Pairing together

























But lets get back…. :)







2 George Mikans 1948 Bowmans?????











Daaayum! Impossible to find 1…but 2 ??



Well, Robert aka Bobmalone took his Miklan with him to get a nice pic together with our 2 !!









So bastian from Ballers paradise camp attends our show with his daughter Lena every years too…first stop at ivans spot!



















Its safe too say that we are trading too…everytime we see us 1!











Then a quick and easy trade with my man Paul aka ploeske !









And I Got this









Back









A dope Julius erving auto!!!!











So!

I hope you have watched my video youtube mix!



Because …this is the dirty part !!!!



My good friend Mohammed aka Bolli…you gotta love him…one of the best collectors we have in Germany…..



Well, I got a card ….lets call that card:



1997-98 skybox autographics century marks Charles barkley /100



And he is collecting that set and I think this barkley would be one of the last 6 which are missing to complete that whole century marks set…..



Well, when he heard that I have just received that barkley, it went down and its been so entertaining and loud that everybody thought it’s a fight or some like that.



Its like in a bazar…the negioating about the price was real..only that I have blocked his offers away…it was sooo much fun !!



































In the meantime I let Ivan do the disussions 8check the youtube video!!)









Thanks Bolli…for trying :)







We are coming near the end…and Chris and david are still trading







































Diana …she helped me the most during the show!

In the end she even took care of the garbage!



























Meanwhile I have made the restaurant owner Erwin look with a card of pure gold !!











Ivan erwin and me













And so far- there is a big thing that I have not even mentioned so far!!



So, diana is a nurse…and she is taking care of especially <Children!



Last year we started getting money together for a good cause and we helped a fellow collectopr frank with his child Leo….now it’s a new show and a new opportunity!



That’s why I have decided to get the money together for Nele !!!



Diana arranged a nice Box and she was the one who walked around the collectors to get somd money…all table moneys (15 euro /table) went inside too.











So, while the show was finished, we were still there…having dinner together…and







……….Counting money…………..









…………….While eating……………..





















So…the show like the show is officially finished….but trust me…nothing is finished here :-D





At first- I got a really good brain and can remember A LOT…but I am not sure who gave me these 2 cards as presents !!!







By the way.....Who got me this one ?? :)

A nice Kovacic Prizm!! (Ivan, warst du es?)











And huuuge thanks for Shaqnatic....you surprised me with a brilliant card!!







The hunchback of notre dame !!





Danke dir Thorsten!!! 😊

After the show is the after party!!!





Sooo- I am always the Kobe Bryant collector…my brother Ivan was always the Antoine Walker collector…so far so good.

The thing is that ivan is not collecting anymore…his cards are sitting in a corner since years and it might be finally time to let a couple of team go…but lets see…..



There is Zsolt..a very well known Antoine Walker Collctor who is massively into Antoine Walker…he was going around the whole show in a game worn walker jersey and uniform…and he showcased everybody his collection!





Ivan and me took zsolt and his brother to a private session into my crib….nobody else…just us……..







Well…we started at first looking at each others collections!!





Zsolt and his brother









































































Crazy walkers































He got a buyback to match my mj





























































Well…I gotta admit, THIS IS IMPRESSIVE…the walkers that he had and the level of passion for walker is really high to reach!!!





Ivan andf them guys…..









This was a cool hobby moment to have ivan and zsolt together in my room…with my laughable kobe pc….i have felt like shit!!! :-D







And he really made me look when he showed me THIS:

2002 Antoine walker all star Game Game Worn Jersey !!!





Are you kidding me ?!???



























TAG







Of course I got some kobe game worn stuff too…so we made a nice pic in the end with our boston/lakers game worn stuffs :)











We just have talked…changed some ideas- but did notdealt anything in that moment….

Its been very important to finally meet zsolt and to spend some time with him!



Thanks for being at our show zsolt…the pleasure was ours!!







But its going on!!



So zsolt and his brother left out…but there was Jörk aka wormsmaennel again…..you might remember him (Nowitzki/Schröder/Schrempf Supercollector ) and he already gave me a book 1 day earlier….



Well, there is more to come …….





At first I have thought about posting a special thread about it- but I guess right here..right now should be a great platform as it might gets more views….



Already months before the show, I got contacted by Jörg if it cool if he would create a SMP PACKAGE…just for me…..



At the beginning I diod not really understood what it could be…a self made package and I am the only one getting it?



But of course I have agreed for it- I know Jörg and his collection is crazy, complete and passionately putting together!



He mentioned that he has spent some serious cashflow for it and I have been totally fine paying it…but he then had the idea to take one of my 9 SMP Packs for his package and that would fit perfectly !!





So he got 1 pack of me…and I got a SMP BOX just for KIKI…just for me!!





Well…at first let me show you the box!!









Kiki smp box







Ist a biggr box with a picture of me (in spain at the beach) which he took for the front page…..





As I have opened the boxc- here is that Inside look









Its supposed to be a smp box just for me…but ohn no…its not that easy…jörg did it a little bit more special and challenged me with trivia questions!!



Now that was different…and I love it!!!







Trivia









So there are 10 packages…ok…but before I have even opened the first package I could not believe how much work and time and took to create this!! …for me…man, I really feel honoured and appreciate such crazy things !”!!





Aiiight, so lets see whats in envelope number 1……..

I think Jörg has studied me and might know a little bit about my taste in cards….















2













He got me already with this one !!!

A 1924 Jim Herberts HOCKEY Card…of course…PSA 1!!

YES!! I love that one!!

And its just not alone that card,…at first you gotta be smart for the trivia…then he is providing you with more informations about the particular card….

Hallo Kiki! Ein echt toller Recap! Vielen Dank, dass Du nicht nur diese Wahnsinns-Show auf die Beine stellst, sondern auch noch Tage mit der Erstellung des Recaps verbringst.
Echt Wahnsinn, was Du alles für das Hobby machst, auch die Camps mit den Gratiskarten für Kinder.
Ich hatte dieses Jahr auch ein kleines Jubiläum, mein 5. Langenfeld.
Es wird jedes Jahr größer, toller, besser und leider auch voller :eek: , aber daran arbeitest Du ja auch schon wieder...
Ich freue mich schon auf mein 6. Langenfeld in 2020!
 
Sauber die Aktion für die Kleene ist echt geglückt...ich und DQG haben demnächst mal vor dabei zu sein...
Kommt halt aufs Datum an da ich am 6.11. Geburtstag hab und dann immer bei meiner Familie bin...
2020 wird eh schwierig ich runde...

Servus Kiki,

wie immer ein toller Recap von einer krassen Show.

Es war tatsächlich meine/unsere erste Teilnahme in Langenfeld, obwohl ich bereits das Silberjubiläum im Hobby überschritten habe.
Die beiden Tage waren ein unglaubliches Erlebnis und den ein oder anderen Sammler habe ich zum ersten Mal "live" getroffen, nachdem man schon Jahre hier im Board miteinander getradet und geschnackt hat.

Einen riesigen Dank von Jade und mir an Dich und alle weiteren Helfer für die Organisation und den mit der Show verbundenen Spass.

Die "Hunchback of Notre Dame" waren übrigens von mir. :p

Ciao,
Thorsten :cool:

Must send first
Die Show war schon mind blowing,
bei dem Recap merkt man erstmal wie viel man gar nicht mitbekommen hat:LOL:
So viele bleibende positive Ereignisse, real dope shit.
Wirklich ein schöner Rückblick, Danke.

@Burn
danke dir !! :) Yeah, komm dieses jahr auf jeden auch :)

@Ilic
erstmal gratulation für dein 5 jähriges jubiläum!! :)
echt super nice !1
UND DANKE DIR!!!
ich muss echt gestehen, es ist mir alles sowas von anstrengend, bin ja eh nicht gesund und die ganze show als ganzes nimmt immer zuviel Energie von mir...gestern war es hart, hatte etwa 5 Stunden mit den Texten, feinschliff usw. verbracht...paar neue Bilder- noch die cards vergessen...noch das camp mit eingebaut, die Struktur mit den 300+ bilder hatte ich die tage zuvor bereits gesetzt- aber der endgegner feinschliff war echt endgegner mit K.O.
Aber mache das immer gertne für die community- die leute kriegen lust auf Langenfeld...lust auf National...lust auf Hobby...in der heutigen Internet Zeit müssen wir uns alle anstrengen aktiv mit treffen umzugehen und es nicht nur online passieren zu lassen.

@Hakikentucky
yes !! danke dir...mit der Nele wollte ich das extra so machen, das sie das große finale am ende kriegt! :) sehr nice das du dieses jahr rundest....aber die Langenfeld show rundet auch auf die #17 auf :)

@shaqnatic ...danke dfir für dein kommen Thorsten!! Danke auch an Jadranka!
Es ist nie zu spät für ne Langenfeld Show und echt schön das du es möglich gemacht hast dabei zu sein!!
und mit der Notre Dame karte !! YEEEES !!
Nun erinnere ich mich wieder- danke dir dafür!! ich hatte so meine Vorstellungen aber nun habe ich es wieder vor meinem inneren Auge wie du sie mir gibst ! :) habs oben auch bereits geändert ;-)

@Slizzero
danke chris!! Schön das du dabei warst...und danke nochmals für den Likör!! :) Auf der show passierte noch sooo viel mehr- das ist immer so von meinen Augen betrachtet, was ich immer so erlebe :)

Kiki,
habe vielen Dank für Deinen erneuten gelungenen Bericht und die Organisation der Show.
Es steckt in beiden Fällen viel Enthusiasmus und Liebe zum Hobby und den damit verbundenen Menschen (nicht nur Sammler, sondern auch Kinder und Bedürftige) dahinter.
Und Geld (Hotel- / Locationsponsor) sowie sehr viel Arbeit.
Die zahlreichen Präsente / "Huldigungen" zeigen, dass Dein Engagement nicht unbemerkt bleibt.

Persönlich habe ich die letzten beiden Jahre mehrere Shows besucht. In meiner Wahrnehmung sind die Cards das Bindeglied, rücken aber mehr in den Hintergrund. Es sind das Gemeinschaftserlebnis und der persönliche Kontakt. Und jede Show verläuft anders und es tauchen neue Gesichter auf. Und damit neue Highlights.

Toll, wenn Du nächstes Jahr wieder und größer was auf die Beine stellen kannst.

Ein Vorschlag: Verlinke doch den Videobericht und den Break Thread. Dann ist alles zusammen.

Danke Kiki für den grenzgenialen Bericht.
Man hat fast das Gefühl selbst dabei gewesen zu sein.

Es ist schön zu sehen, wie einem das Hobby antreiben kann.

Weiter so, ein Fan. :love:

GROSSARTIG!!! WAHNSINN!!! MEGA!!! Ach eigentlich kann jeder Superlativ stehen...

Es war für mich nach 7 Jahren ein super Comeback, viele "alte" Gesichter und auch ein paar Neue waren am Start! Eine tolle Show, viel zu wenig Zeit (und Geld) aber einfach ein tolles Wochenende.

@croatiantwins - ja genau Kiki, du hast nur kurz überlegt und selbst mich überrumpelt als wir den Deal fixierten! Danke dafür, aber ich kenne es auch nicht anders von dir. :love:(y)😁

du hast gute Augen!! :)
glaub mir, ich hab das SMP mit heißen cards vollgepackt...da darf Steve Urkel nicht fehlen ;-)


@jrrider
jens...das comeback war sehr gelungen!1
Danke das du ein Teil davon bist!! :) Und danke für die superlativen, weiss das echt zu schätzen 🙃
und yeah, mit dem Nowitzki Deal...da gabs gaaar nichts zu warten, einfach flexen und gut ist .........vorallem war es GENAU DASdas mir da sowas von passte !!! :)


@MountMiller
danke dir! Und Chapeau for real !!
Es kommen mehjr und mehr wieder zu den Shows, solche Recaps sind vielleicht nur so ein kleiner Happen um die Lust daraf zu erregen ;-)


@MVP-Aron
hehe, danke dir Aaron..ich gebe mein bestes ein guter Kiks zu sein...ein guter Collector :)
Aber, WIR alle sind Hobby !!!
(und nicht diese Retail scheisse ;-D)


@Goleador
sehr fein...wenn du das feeling hast dabei zu sein, ist es genau so wie es gedacht ist!!
Danke dir Roman !...... ein Fan :)


@bastibohne
danke dir Basti! :) Sehr gerne...und vorallem in Richtung Nele!! :)


@wormsmaennel
hehe, danke dir Jörg!
Danke dir auch das du ein part davon bist - nur zusammen sind wir etwas!

Und das mit den "Huldigungen" .....erstmal HULDIGUNGEN ist soo ein krasses wort, aber das was ich hier erlebe und auch auf der National ist soooo ein geiles gefühl, wenn sich Leute damit beschäftigen, was mir gefallen könnte um mir ne Freude zu machen- finde das so surreal und weiss all das sooo zu schätzen!!

Und es stimmt..meist gehts nichtmal nur um die karten, die sind nur das mittel zum zweck!...das zusammenkommen, das abschalten vom Alltag.....sammler aus der ganzen welt treffen und einfach Spaß zu haben.....das ist sooo real und schön, vorallem wenn wir unsere sammelkarten als medium dafür verwenden können :)

<>Meine freunde, meine gemeinde...ich wünsche euch einen brisanten Tag!
