In my quest to try a connect with other collectors, I thought I would hunt down the hottest local card shop in the Denver area. From what I hear it's Mike's Stadium Sportscards in Aurora, Colorado. I set the address in my trusty Blackberry and off I went. Mike's is actually super easy to find. It's just off of South Parker Rd. and Quincey.
I didn't really know what to expect and I'll admit I was worried that I might not be taken seriously as a collector. What ever gave me that idea I'll never know. I was really happy to see Christian. (the guy I met a couple of weeks ago at a card show in Westminster). He was working and apparently has worked there on and off since high school. The store was EXACTLY like I thought it would be! Although a bit overwhelming, I was in cardboard heaven! I'm sure all you collector's know what I'm talking about!
Since I wasn't really prepared financially to buy any boxes, I did however grab a couple of packs and penny sleeves before I left. Here's what I got.
Any information about these 2010 Topps Pro-Debut players is appreciated. I'm not up to date on them yet. These are all high numbered cards.
This last card was pulled from a pack of 2010 Upper Deck
So now I'm familiar with Mike's (I've yet to meet Mike himself) I will be buying cards there for sure! I've pulled some great cards from, of course my favorite place Target, but my eyes where opened to a whole other world!
With Trade Nights, sports star autograph signings, coupons, and drawings, I won't need to go anywhere else!
Who knew? And why didn't anyone tell me?
