Default Austin, TX Card Shops

Anyone have any recommendations?
I mostly do basketball but have significant interest in football and baseball also.

Thumbs up Not Austin but....

Waco, Texas has Bankston's Cards & Collectibles. Brent runs the shop and is a very nice person to deal with. I would go out of my way to visit his shop on valley mills drive in Waco.

Co-sign on this x100000000000000000.

I stopped going to Card Traders of Austin when I was in the store buying 99 fb stuff when I was collecting Ricky Williams.

A kid walked in and pulled a Ricky auto from Topps and the kid was excited but didnt really want it. They told the kid it was worth about 60.00 bucks but they couldnt pay that so they could have room for profit. Dad agreed to letting the kid trade it for another box of Topps.

As soon as they left, the workers laughed and slapped a 600.00 tag on the Ricky auto.

Be wary of the shop in San Marcos...havent been there since getting dusted on box of non sports that ended up being pack searched. Dont know that they still do or allow it, but they use to.

Not sure what ManintheMirror's problem with Kenny's Collectibles but it is a pretty big shop and in south Austin while you also have Austin Sports Connection off Burnet Road south of 183. Those along with Card Traders are the only 3 card shops in Austin. From what I heard, the shop in San Marcos doesn't deal with that many newer cards but not sure. You can check Kenny's Collectibles website out (.org) if you want to take a look at some of the card selection there is.

Never went into Kenny's but if they are who I remember or think they are, always had a pleasant dealing with them when they use to do Wallace's hotel shows.
