Default Florida - Who still sells cards???

When I was a kid, everywhere you went you could buy a pack of baseball cards - every grocery store, drug store, convenience store and gas station sold boxes of every card manufacturer available (and man, there was Score, Donruss, Fleer, Pinnacle, Topps, Upper Deck, etc - boy I miss those days!).

I can't find a place that sells packs anywhere anymore - at least not in central Florida. Anyone in my neck of the woods got leads on a casual place for the occasional retail pack outside of card stores?

Thanks guys! I'll drop there. Sad that the gas stations don't carry them much anymore, or I'd buy a pack of cards every time I got gas.

the problem is that they printed so many cards back then that none of them are worth anything today (except for the few btu they can produce when you burn them).

yeah the overproduction saturated the market - I just miss the fact that there were so many differences in style and techniques in card creation that you don't necessarily see now during a single season. The competition was really healthy for the innovation.

I live in Central Florida. Walmarts and Targets sell cards. I personally like Orlando Sports Cards. Yes their boxes are over priced but their singles selection is nice and that is what I go for. There are some other shops in Lakeland and I believe one in Casselberry.
