The Atlanta 2001 National is now history. . . and next year, when collectors want to remember the shows of the past as well as the 32nd "peaches and cream" show, they will have fun perusing the historian's scrapbooks as I did.

A special thank you to Kevin Jacobson who send wonderful pictures taken at the show, many of which I was able to used in this report. Thanks, Kevin.
