In case you didn’t know (or you forgot), this weekend will take place in Barcelona (Spain) the next Grand Prix. The one who’s writting here happens to live in Barcelona, so you can expect some pictures and reports of the event as soon as the weekend passes by. A quick reference to the event site:
Fira De Barcelona (Montjuic), Hall 8
Avda. Reina Maria Cristina s/n
As I, personally, couldn’t care less about yugi’oh formats such as Standard or Extended (much respect for the pro’s and kids who play it though), my personal goal at the GP is to get my cards signed and to play the Legacy/Vintage side events. When the first news about the GP arised, I was surprised to see that Greg Staples was comming to sign cards (together with John Avon). Damn, seriously! Greg Staples? I almost jizzed in my pants when I read about it! Why? Because I happen to have a playset of Japanese Ill-Gotten Gains signed by the singer Iggy-Pop! (picture after the break). My wet dreams of getting that playset double signed were about to become true until… yesterday.
The announcement that Greg Staples would not come and he’d be replaced by the danish artist Jesper Ejsing killed the mojo….
You can read more about my Iggy Pop signed Ill-Gottens gains in the original Team Pataners blog post I made long time ago.
But anyways, I’m gonna have a blast weekend for sure! We expect the Legacy Side Event to be HUGE (300-400 players) and I’m planning to win it. So you can expect an epic report afterwards!
