Default Best Chicago-area LCS?

Making the trek from St. Louis on a weekend getaway. Staying around Chicago Ridge. Any good stores in that area?

That's way out of the way for me, but google says The Baseball Card King and RBI Sports Cards are nearby. Haven't been to either so caveat emptor.

If you're in the city, Elite Sports Cards is my favorite. Tim's Baseball Card Shop is right around the corner. Neither keeps a lot of new wax in stock, though, they always sell out. Even at Chicago prices.

Default Best shop

I've been to many shops and the only one of substance is in Buffalo Grove it's called Chicagoland Sports cards I've been purchasing from them for over 10 years and it always has everything in stock an ready for purchase whether its boxes or cases they have everything and I know they have many buyers out of state and can ship out product at very competitive pricing.

Also a side note I buy in spurts a few cases month and my biggest pulls come from this shop

Tiger Woods Auto
Jordan exquisite auto /10
RG3 Exquisite rc jersey number sold for 1750.00
Just to name a few in the past couple of months.

I go to Ballmart collectibles in Itasca. Really nice guys. Chicagoland sports cards didnt have very polite of workers that would chat to you about cards, life, sports, etc. Thats what I look for in a shop.
