Default Best Place to buy cards in the Bay Area?

Anyone know any good card shops between San Francisco and Sacramento??? My LCS in Fairfield, CA is way too expensive. For example 2012 Prominence Football Is going for $110 + tax, 2012 Momentum football is over $200 +tax. I want to support local card shops, but have to find prices that are atleast half way fair!!

Not looking for anything in particular. Just enjoy browsing through stores when I get a chance. Thanks though.

Diamond Sportscards in Concord is the best, right off the freeway. He keeps a really good inventory of stuff over the last two years, most of the time he is fully stocked. His son runs Diamond in San Rafael but the dad has better prices, I'm guessing his rent is about a third of the other shop as well lol.

I'd imagine it's hard to make much with rent costs around here. I'm in Napa too, my wife has looked into retail spaces around town for her business ideas and it's pricey.

Probably better for my wallet that there's not one closer because I'm an impulse buyer.
