he has a pretty small shop actually is in the front of his house. he is a nice guy. Boxes and singles are a bit overpriced. But his supplies are dirt cheap. He sells promold 120 point screwdowns for a buck a piece. around .35 cents cheaper then what you can get as a normal person straight from promold. and most of the others supplies are cheap.


I do not trading/sell or buy cards at this time

Card Collector's Paradise
386 Old River Road
Lincoln, RI 02838

http://www.cardcollectorsparadise.com/
Relatively new shop with a good selection of hobby boxes with great prices. The owner Steve is a nice guy and is always willing to get whatever you need if he doesn't have it in stock. He is active on youtube and will give you a discount if you let him videotape your box break. The selection of singles for each sport grows each time I visit. He also carries a full line of supplies, memorabilia and collectible card games.

California

Bakersfield

Russo's Books
9000 Ming Ave # I4
Bakersfield, Ca 93311

This shop is located at the back of the bookstore. The newly released products tend to sell out fast, so if you ever want a high end product that's about to be released, you're better off pre-ordering or holding a box. They have some nice singles, but they sell them at book value.

San Diego

CJ's Sports Cards and Memorabilia
5143 Waring Rd
San Diego, CA 92120

This shop is located near SDSU for all those Aztecs who may be looking for a place to shop around. They have a wide selection of boxes and the more popular high end boxes are still on their shelves. My guess is that regional demand isn't that high. If you're a basketball or hockey collector looking for singles, this is not the place for you. If you live in the San Diego area and want something high end, you probably have better chances at CJ's. They also sell autographed baseballs, bats, and photos and have other sports related items on their shelves.

Clairemont Sports Cards
4941 Clairemont Drive Suite C
San Diego, CA 92117

This shop is located "near" UCSD for all the Tritons that enjoy the hobby. Great customer service, the best of all the hobby shops I've been to! Their singles selection is larger than CJ's and includes basketball. From what I've seen, they only carry baseball, basketball and football boxes. Sorry hockey collectors. A lot of the cards are on consignment so the cards are priced at book value or a little high for those that aren't priced due to scarcity.

Ohio

Fairview Park

B AND B SPORTS CARDS
22235 LORAIN ROAD
FAIRVIEW PARK, OH 44126-331

This is my regular shop. He mostly sells wax. He has very large variety of products and his prices are usually just as good if not better than dacardworld.com and blowoutcards.com when a product first comes out (of course, as prices fall the online prices are better). You can buy cases as well if that's your thing. He doesn't have a huge selections of supplies (just your standard Ultra Pro selection).

VIRGINIA

Southern Cards
1315 Euclid Ave.
Suite 3-A
Bristol, Va 24201

276-669-4110

Ronnie Houser purchased Southern Cards about 12 years ago and has a great selection of singles and current Baseball and Football boxes. Basketball never was a big seller in Bristol, so he has to order those. His prices do not have any local competition, but once you get to know him he drops them pretty nicely. He has a solid vintage selection as well - along with a few memorabilia pieces and starting lineups. He also delves in the non-sports genre of comics, movies, and gaming.

From Corpus Christi Tx.

Sportstuff
815 Waldron Road
C.C. Tx 361-937-8909

Owner name: Drake

If you want Vintage down here he would be the resident expert. Lots of older stuff, mostly graded and or Authenticated. makes his own displays. Has a Plastics and Sign business at the rear of his shop. I have had all of my Display cases built to order from him.
Nice place to buy singles and make some high end trades for store credit.
Box prices are a bit high, I have almost entirely quit buying boxes from him.
EX: With the 8.65% tax here I can get 3 boxes from BOC compared to 2 boxes from him. Convinience isn't always everything...lol

Great guy to just sit around and shoot the breeze with him and other customers. The truer collectors normally shop with him.



MVP Sports

5226 Williams
C.C. Texas 361-814-4739

Owner: Marlon

If you need boxes today and can't wait out the mail, you'll get a much better deal here than at the other guys. He'd rather sell 20 boxes at a $10 profit per, than 5 boxes at a $50 profit per.
This shop's mainstream buyers are the what we call "Flipper's" The owner is pretty cool once he get's a read on how you collect.
I wouldn't buy a single from the guy, if looking to get one graded. Singles fly through this store, and a lot are from the "flea market" crowd...No offense flea market peoples but these guys I don't trust.

We do have a flea market outlet available to us, but they seem to think everything is "Gold" and a lot of "trimmed" cards pass through it to unsuspecting customers.

If ya'll ever visit Corpus, gimme a holler and I can show you the stores.
