About Us!

March 1987
First Location
Exterior of our original 1,900 sq/ft location before the family (Mom, Dad and me) purchased it circa the late 80’s. Old owner was a jack of all trades and master of none. Upon purchase we eliminated everything but United States coins and sports cards (we eliminated the coins eventually) and renamed the business Burbank Sportscards.

Busy Day

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 and Ernie

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.

Rob's Desk

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.
