The next Pre-release Tournament will be August 28, 2004 which will be the "FireRed~GreenLeaf" series. MP Birch wil be signing any "Professor Birch", Ruby & Sapphire cards that you will want signed. Master Professor Birch signed about 25-30 cards at the "Pokemon Space Party" at NASA over the weekend. :cool:

    This is a very exciting series of cards and the current decks will surely change with the addition of these cards. As previously stated, the "Hidden Legends" are HOT-HOT-HOT!!!

    I hope to see you there for all of the fun that we will have during the day. We will have "Side Events" during the day: "GBA Tournament", "Modified Constructed Deck Tournament", and "Limited-Booster Draft Tournament". The "Booster Draft" will allow you to get more of these cards at a great price!!! :thumb:
