Default Philly/South Jersey area?

Hey guys, I'm in Mt Laurel NJ area for a while trying to find a decent lcs. I've checked the threads for Philly and saw some recommendations for Media, but it's a little too far. Riverside Sports Card got some good feedback so might go check them out.

Just wondering if anyone knows of any other shops that aren't a little too rapey on the pricing. All but 1 I've found online or on the GPS is closed, and the one I did find had the most outrageous prices I've ever seen, ever. Wish I could remember the name of it just so I could tell people to stay away. It was in a downtown area of a smaller town around Chatham. Anyway, thanks!

Oh and actually I'm traveling quite a bit all over NJ, so any recommendations for good shops in the state would be appreciated. Thanks!

Woo another south jersey member. I have gone to 4-5 different stores and my favorite is Evan's Sports Cards & Collectibles in Voorhees. Really nice owner with mostly good prices. Will give you a small discount on almost all product. Also has a TON of autographed pictures with great prices on those. If you ever have time check out his store. Definitely stay away from Conte's Card Castle in Haddonfield. WAYYY overpriced. Good luck!

Thanks for the info, I'll see how far Voorhees is from where I'm at. Most of the places I look up online are closed. I think the one in Haddonfield is the one I did find. I was absolutely disgusted by their pricing. I'd slap someone if I saw them buy a box from there at those prices.

I went to Riverside Sports Cards yesterday after reading some of the other threads. I agree with all the others, good shop and Dave, the owner, was awesome. Chatted with him for at least half an hour & he was very reasonable and worked with me on pricing. Was also very honest, without me asking he'd tell me if he knew of any hits pulled from the opened boxes so I'd save my $ from buying packs with no shot.

Ended up buying his last 2 boxes of Triple Threads FB, one of the boxes was fantastic! Other one, not so much...

BamBam lives down that way and Ronlabo will float down there via the Wonka Chocolate River.
