A picture circa 1987 of myself with Don and Marsha Osborne, the previous owners. And yeah, I guess having that extra button undone was a big thing back in the day. I was 21.
A piece in the local San Fernando Valley newspaper from 1990 that depicted the card boom that was happening, it was quite the wild time.
We used this photo from our original shop for an ad campaign that we launched at the AMC theater for their on screen previews in the early 90’s.
An additional shot of part of our original showroom.
The exterior of our second building which was double the size of the first.
The interior of our second location, approximately 4,000 sq/ft on it’s opening in October of 1995, a huge upgrade from our previous location.
Mom, Dad and I on opening day, as fate would have it, it was the Monday that the O.J verdict was read, exactly at 10:00 am when we opened our doors.
A busy day at our second location. This was pre-mainstream e-commerce and folks had to actually dig through boxes and peruse showcases to buy their cards.
My Mom Elaine who was on board from the first day of family ownership until her passing in 2007. As you can see, she lit up the room, she was the adult in the room in the beginning, lol, and everyone LOVED her.
A pic of me and my Pops Steve in front of an amazing array of cards that were organized back in the day as cards are now in a database today.
A typical sight on my desk till this very day. Mountains of cards that need to be broken down so they can be worked by the staff. With over 40 million cards on eBay, this has been a daily grind for decades.
The exterior shot our 3rd and hopefully last location. it’s 7,500 square feet, has a hopping showroom in the front and the ultimate sports cards fulfillment center in the back.
My son and I, as you can see we are always buying!
