On my annual visit out to Oklahoma and places along the way, I had the good fortune to stop in West Plains, MO, and see my old friend, the incredible Bruce Hershenson! I think the pandemic has made it even more exciting to see old friends and I was sure glad to see Bruce (thanks for the lunch, Bruce!).  Bruce gave me the grand tour of his operation and my how it has grown.  It was nice meeting some of the staff who do such a fantastic job everyday, too!  Here's a professional photo taken by Bruce's staff on the same equipment used for the auctions.  Can't wait to visit again one day! Good times.  Okie

Nice photo, it's good to put a face to the name.  :)

It must have been fun to look around EMP - did you see any cool posters going through the listing process?

Monster and Tob: Yeah, Bruce's is an amazing operation to visit. 

Tob, you're literally walking through a monstrous warehouse where there are so many posters being graded, photographed, catalogued, organized, and stored, it just blows your mind.  With so much amazing poster auction preparation going on, it was nice to witness how calm and cool the staff were while doing their work. There was a great vibe that people were enjoying their work, too. It's a busy wonderland!
