We grew up completely enamored by anything and everything sports. From watching sports, to playing sports, to collecting sports cards – we loved it all.
Many of our favorite childhood memories involve going to card shows with our old man, drooling over cards we could never afford, waiting in line for hours to get an autograph from a sports God, trading cards with friends in the neighborhood, studying and memorizing every player's stats (back before the internet was a thing) off the back of their card, and ripping open wax packs.
Like so many others, life got busier as we got older, with more and more responsibilities, and it took us away from those things that we so dearly loved as kids.
Not too long after COVID hit, we found ourselves with more free time than usual. We spent nearly a week going through endless shoeboxes of cards we’d collected as kids and something truly amazing happened that was hard to explain. Here we were, in the middle of one of the darkest times in our nation's history, yet we were overcome with joy and happiness as we flipped through these cards from our childhood, reflecting on all of the amazing memories tied in with each. It was truly magic and we were once again hooked on the hobby.
Soon after, we realized we weren’t alone in this rekindling of interest in the hobby and also learned how tight manufacturers supply and print runs had gotten since they mass overproduced in the 80's and 90's, which led to the junk wax era. This increased demand, combined with manufacturers tight supply meant that prices were too expensive for many to afford. From eBay to the largest online card sites, there were no good deals to be found for modern sealed wax.
We were founded shortly thereafter with a simple mission - to help provide sports card enthusiasts with the lowest prices and best service out there, both for sealed wax and live breaks, so as many people as possible can participate in all the fun the hobby has to offer.
The bonds and memories made from this hobby are priceless. We want to do our part to help keep the hobby going strong for many generations to come and make it as affordable as possible by offering the lowest prices out there.
Thanks for joining us on our journey, please tell your friends about us, and we look forward to great things ahead!
