Great shop for all your sports hobby needs! – Mike & Pete run a great shop. As I began getting back into the hobby, they were both extremely helpful to me and got me caught up with all the new changes that have taken over the card collecting hobby since I was a teenager. There would be times when my cousin and I would spend countless hours in there just talking to the guys whether it would be about baseball or current events. They are both extremely knowledgeable and courteous to any of the customers that enter their shop.
While you may find somewhat cheaper prices online for wax boxes, which is what I primarily buy, you can rest assure that they do not rifle through any of the packs or boxes and take out the highly coveted short prints or cut signatures. They give you a legitimate chance to catch one on your own, which is what I did on numerous occasions. I can't say that I've had the same luck online. On some occasions, they have even offered to "buy back" the pack or box for a price if you didn't get a good card.
Their selection is excellent...always trying to have the newest and most popular products that are on the market. They also offer a nice selection of singles and supplies for your collecting needs. Even if you aren't into actual card collecting, they offer a great deal of memorabilia such as autographed baseballs and jerseys to old magazines and programs.
The only thing tough for me is the location. Bromfield Street doesn't offer any parking of any kind so you really need to depend on public transportation unless you want to pay $12-20 for parking at one of the local garages or lots. But if you are shopping downtown or don't mind taking the T, this is the place to go for all your sports collection needs.
P.S. (Sorry Kevin and I haven't been in at all recently...been a little short on money as of late, but we will be back!)
Small Store with Great Stuff – I have been to many sports card shops in the country and I like this one a lot. It has a great variety of older cards, something you don't find in most card shops these days. It seems like Pokemon and Yugioh have invaded the planet. Prices are right. They don't BS on the condition. If you ask for a discount, they can usually oblige.
