If I'm interested in buying a certain box, I'll go there first to check and see if they have it. If they do I buy it. For me it's right on my way home so it's not out of the way. Some other card shops seem to not care that you walk in their store. They'll sit behind the counter reading and will only help you if you ask. The guys at Batter Up will talk sports with you and joke around. It's just a much more pleasant experience. For me, that goes a long way. In Eastern Mass there is no really sports card and memorabilia only store. It seems like comic books are way more popular. So I like going into Batter Up and chatting sports and buying a box or two.
