The guys over at The Baseball Card Shoppe are really nice

Baseball Card Shoppe
126 Westgate Mall
Madison, WI 53711-1028
(608) 274-8498 ‎

and there is a little place in Verona called Greg's Card Locker. He has really good prices on most stuff and I pulled a superfractor out of Topps Chrome from there the other day.

Greg's Card Locker
204 South Main Street
Verona, WI 53593-1422
(608) 845-6323 ‎

There is also a show going on at the Crown Plaza Hotel (one of the meeting rooms on the right side of the hotel) on the east side from 10-3 on Sunday. It usually has a few wax dealers and modern singles but half the people seem to deal with vintage.

4402 East Washington Avenue
Madison, WI 53704
(608) 244-4703

Went to the Baseball Card Shoppe. Really nice shop, lots of old wax and boxes, new stuff, lots of singles. Nice guy, got some inserts and a box.

I also passed a place called Jim's Card Korner and stopped in. Another good shop. Much different character but he had a few singles I needed and really good prices on boxes.

Didn't make it to the Card Locker but will try next time.

Best were a black parallel Andrew Mccutchen (#/60)from a 2011 Topps Series 1 and a dual stamp from Heritage (Pierre and someone, #/62). Box "hits" were all both relics but one was Tony Gwynn so that's cool. Boxes weren't good. Conversation was worth it though and I did get a 2010 A&G Posey relic that I've been looking for for my PC.

FWIW, was up there again this weekend. Jim's Card Korner was great, picked up a box of Bowman football (Xfractor Auto, Gold Auto) on Friday and 2013 Museum Collection on Saturday (Black Museum Collection Auto). St. Bernard is still friendly and kicking.

Also hit the Baseball Card Shoppe on Saturday. Didn't buy much there, but found a Konkero bobble head and the kid loved it.

Took the drive to Verona on Saturday to Greg's Card Locker. Had recent stuff in the window (2013 Spring Fever, 2013 Heritage) but a sign taped to the door said "Closed Until Further Notice" and the shelves looked empty. Bummer.
