almost double from 2009. It appeared most of the exhibitors had a good time buying, selling and tradeing.
Saturday was very busy with the guests and comic creators visiting with the fans and collectors most of the afternoon.
Here are a few testimonials from OAFCON attendees:
I picked up some great stuff at the show.
4 BIG BIG BOOKS,2 BIG LITTLE BOOKS, 10 BOYS BOOKS IN DJ and a COCA COLA SANTA STANDEE from the 1940's
It was like being paid to go to a family reunion.
It was fun to hang out with all the OAF guys and seeing and talking with Bart Bush, Robert Brown and artist Kenneth Smith again. Also had a great time visiting with the Heritage guys Don Mangus and Jerry Stephan who came up from Dallas. My old APA buddies were there too including John Province and his wife Roberta who flew in from California. Ike Wilson attended the convention and brought with him a big selection of original GOLDEN AGE comics from the collection of DICK SPRANG
But the guy I want to THANK for selling me all kinds of great material at this show was John Bryant, who turned up the last issue I needed of CRAZY comic mag (published by Charlton) featuring the art of BILL WARD, STEVE DITKO, BASIL WOLVERTON and others. Try to find this baby on eBay. It's not easy!
Thanks guys for putting on another fun convention and I'll be back there next year for sure.
The reason I've gone to the last 3 Oklahoma Collectibles shows is because of the friendly, knowledgeable people and the tremendous variety of cool vintage items -- comic books, movie stills, posters, books, toys and premiums. The prices are reasonable and oftentimes subject to negotiation, and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Highly recommended!"
And now below are some pictures from OAFcon 2011 ....
