I have some commitments on Saturday, but I should be there late on Saturday night.
May be there on Sunday, early, as well, if anyone wants to meet up.

When one of our own needs our help, we step up to the plate, and this is the case for Chris Roberts. Chris is currently (thankfully) in remission from cancer. Bills and daily expenses have hit him hard, and I wanted to run an event in a show of solidarity. I have donated the NYSE Open V qualifier for this tournament; the full proceeds of that go to Chris.
In addition, I have spoken with Alan at Comic Book Depot, and he has generously agreed to put all entries past the twelfth towards Chris. This means that if we had 20 guys, the credit pool would remain at $70, but it would also mean that we've put together nearly $250 to give to Chris.
We have taken donations from a few members of the community so far; many thanks to Tom Dixon and Tom Daliapes. Their donations will go towards Chris as well.
Questions, comments, concerns? Reach out to me and I'll do my best to address them.
See you all at Depot on 3/3!
The card market has taken a beating in the last six months or so, with a lot of the Eternal format staples tanking in price. The set of NM/M German FBB Seas that I picked up in August for $4,100 in trade are probably worth about $3,300 now. The FBB Volcs I picked up for $3,000 are worth about $2,300 now. It has been a bloodbath.
I don't know how feasible it is overall, but I'd want to try and find a way to incorporate completed eBay listings in on the high-end items, if I were you. You shouldn't take the hit on what the cards were worth seven or eight months ago, you should be able to value everything at what it's all worth right now.
On the flip side, I'd also want to ensure that something like SCG prices weren't used as a benchmark, as they're astronomically overpriced on some cards (especially power).
Sorry to read this, it sucks. Good luck with everything.
@MikeTheProf Likely yes, but that will be a decision for the head judge of the event, whom we're waiting on confirmation.
@Soly Thank you! Shop decks are my pride and joy. It took a long time to put all of that together.
Waiting on German foil Ballistas. Should have them in the next few weeks.
@joshuabrooks Didn't really get enough games in to see, but it could be good.
Also, for whatever it's worth, top four did not play it out, we split and went home...which is the best part of the elimination rounds.
I'll be updating this list fairly regularly as we get closer to the main event (likely every other day or so on average).
This list will confirm that I've received your registration, in addition to giving those who are waiting to register a rough idea as to how many spots are left.
Due to the qualifiers being run, there are 143 spots available through the PreReg.me website.
Without further ado, here is the official pre-registration list for NYSE Open V:
115 spots remaining.
Pre-registration for NYSE Open V is live!
