WillC went to one this summer (he is from England) and was disapointed..

Yeah, I wouldn't bother with Legacy Sports Cards. I was really disappointed.

The cards are VERY overpriced. It would have been comical if I hadn't given up a couple of hours of my holiday to go out of my way to the store.

There was a very limited supply of boxes and they too were hugely overpriced. There was a box of Bowman 48 for something like $225. I remember buying a box for $55 when it came out. It's still not worth anything more than $125 or so.

Some examples of singles prices:

- A crappy Oscar Robertson Panini auto for $250... when it's worth about $55.

- A sweet Joe Lapchick cut auto for $800... currently sat on eBay with no offers, because it's worth about $200 max.

They have a ton of crappy swatch cards but even those are triple the price you can get them for on eBay or COMC.

Meanwhile, although the staff certainly weren't rude, I didn't find them overly helpful or friendly either.

I'd be tempted to drive a thousand miles east to go to Bubba's Baseball Bullpen in Albuqurque. Now that's how a card store should be run.
