Default List good baseball card stores in US

is a separate board for listings and reviews of card shops. Maybe a star rating system with comments. I know they are a dying breed, but for people who are traveling and would like to see if there is a vintage card shop in [FILL IN THE BLANK], would be cool to search for the city and see if there are any and whether they might be worth a stop. I have found reviews on things like Yelp to be ok but limited. I am sure I'm not the only person who tries to find obscure shops when they are traveling.

This could be doable.... If folks want to use this thread to list good and current Local Card Shops, with contact info, I think we could/would probably make a place for the list....

+100, I have actually thought in the past of doing something similar to this, but with both card shops and card shows.

As for my favorite card shops I haven't been to many but Rock's Dugout in Wichita, Kansas was fantastic!

I would definitely like to hear about some other good card shops from everyone else.

Me too, I travel a lot for work and this could be a great thing to have.

I agree that Rock's in Wichita, KS isn't bad. Not much prewar but has the old school card shop feel to it like they did in the early 90's.

Rock's Dugout is where the large group of T206 Sweet Caporal 350/460 Factory 30 "no print" scraps that sold on ebay in 2015-16 came from. I spoke
to the owner (Joe) after they were sold and he said a guy came in with over 400 T206's that included the "no prints". The guy told him they came
from an estate sale in NY.

I like it.

My now-fiancee and I went to Cincinnati last spring, and one stop we made was to a shop called Sports Investments Inc.; we actually went here twice, once as a pass-by, and once to go back and actually buy stuff since we had the time. GREAT shop. I'll be honest, I don't remember how much Pre-War they had, but I did end up picking up a 1940 Play Ball and some Post-War vintage. Pretty good prices, but the highlights included their memorabilia and the owners.

Their shop's setup is museum-like, with most things for sale, but some very cool items for display only. They have Pete Rose's car, or at least they did. They have some Tiger Woods stuff, Griffey & Griffey Jr. stuff, all displayed like a museum (some for sale, some not).

The owners were incredible to talk with, sharing Reds stories and such. Very friendly, and they assisted with other attractions to visit while we were there.

I know they sell a lot on eBay, too, but their shop is a must-stop if you're visiting Cincinnati.

I live in Cincinnati and yes this place is great. I think the hidden gem though is called Ideal Baseball Cards over on the west side. They have mostly postwar vintage items but I've found quite a bit of good prewar also. Best place in Cincy IMO.
