EBAY COLLECTIBLES SHOW REPORT
NBS Vice-President David Sklow filed this report from last week's coin and collectibles show sponsored by Ebay in Columbus, OH:
"Great show, great seminars and great ebay support, but no people!!! If you can imagine, at the ribbon cutting there were only a few dozen people. I was there Friday 11:00 AM, empty! Again Saturday at noon, empty!
The convention floor was large with wide aisles. There were a lot of dealers. Ebay did a bang-up job all around. I guess Columbus really isn't the numismatic hub of the world!"
Actually Dave, this fits in well with the Ebay master plan. Soon those pesky, smelly humans will be replaced with robot buyers and sellers, trading collectibles in dark rooms
at optimal efficiency…
