If you are in Joliet make sure to stop by Matts Sports Cards in Joliet - good owner with a decent selection of stuff and has fair prices. Otherwise there is a shop in Plainfield on Route 30 (Baseball Card King) and 2 decent shops in Naperville (Triple Crown Trading and Galaxy Sports Cards)

Yeah I heard about Baseball Card King and Matt's Sports Cards. I might check them out. I also have pitpass for the race and I have no idea what that means.

Unfortunantly I wasn't able to hit a card shop cause we didn't get in until 8 yesterday and the race prevented us from going to one and we are leaving now.

Looks like a very nice shop. You work very hard to make it fun for your customers.

Elite Sportscards on Montrose in the Lincoln Square area is a nice shop. Boxes, packs, and a good chat. It's in town though, so Chicago prices.

Westlake Cards looks good but it's way out there. I'll give it a try when I have time to make the drive.

Would either of these 2 places carry cheap boxes? I mean things like 1988 topps or anything from that period?

Hey all. I actually just moved out to Chicago myself and was looking for a few closer to home (Hyde Park area, South Side). Any recommendations?
