Trading Card Central

Collectors Universe is actually home of lots of collectors, especially fans of the PSA graded cards that the company is also apart of. This is actually a publicly traded company - and they have lots of capitol to keep the forums up to date. I've heard the CEO of the company talk about the message boards on conference calls to investors, so they really do care about their community.

Places To Shop

eBay The World's Marketplace
I personally have been buying/selling on eBay since 1999. I have seen the site grow and change quite a bit over the years. You can almost always find the Single Card, Box, or even Case of cards you are looking for all in one place! Be careful of new/bad feedback sellers..look for the good ones and you will have fun on eBay!

Very cool and easy way to locate cards and shop for singles. Millions of cards and lots to choose from. The search function takes some getting used to, but if you know the cards you need - you should find a seller with them on this site.
Check Out My Cards
This website is pretty cool for both buying & selling. If you are a buyer, the best thing is you can buy a bunch of cards & have them all shipped to you for one price. If you are a seller, you can package up 1,000's of cards and COMC will scan, sort, ship everything for you from their storage center. The site is not for everyone (because they hold all your cards as a seller, and you request shipment as a buyer) but cards do sell well on the site & you can find good deals.

RB Sports Cards Cards & Hobby
We spoke with the owner of this card shop during the early stages of his experience owning a card store. I'm sure we'll catch up with him again, but in the mean time - you should check out his card store - I hear it's in a great location and he often has autograph signing from big name athletes in the area.

Had the pleasure of talking with these guys on the podcast, then actually met them at the Industry Summit in 2012 and did another podcast with them (plus we had fun hanging out with them in Las Vegas). I credit these guys with being the 1st to attend the Industry Summit as a box-break only website, and they've professionalized the business as well with a nice website and newsletter that keeps you up to date. When I have extra money to buy box breaks, it's almost always with these guys. Logo
Blowout Cards
One of the best places to find a large selection of un-opened boxes/cases from all the major brands. Known for its low prices, community forums and honest service. I've been shopping from this website for about 8 years now and I have always pulled great cards, including a Tiger Woods Autograph 8x10 from SP Signature Golf many years back.
Blowout Cards
DA Card World
You can pretty much shop here or at Blowout Cards & you'll be getting the lowest prices and best service. I used to order through their Large Order Discount programs, and often bought HeroClix and other gaming boxes when I used to sell boxes many years ago.

Charm City Cards
For as long as I can remember, CharmCityCards has sold cards online. Always timely and consistent with shipping and prices - this is another option you should look to when ordering boxes online. They also stock an extensive collection of wax/boxes that are a few years old, making this a great choice when you want to crack a box from the past.
