Welcome to collecting cards in Southern California. The card shop is going the way of the card show. Frank and Sons is crap, if you play magic or collect toys or comics maybe its worth the drive. I have one shop by me and its ok but wax prices can get a little high. The owner only sells singles at full book price so dont expect to score a nice Blake Griffin NT RPA, he does not carry that high end and if he did it would be full BV. The National has all but black listed Anaheim and LA because of not being able to book far enough in advance.
Be at Peace little one. Never forget, Leoneez
