Grand Slam in sterling heights - ok for a quick fix.... kinda pricey (but its an LCS....) Supposedly the owner pack searches.

Stadium Cards in Ann Arbor - nice shop, owner is a nice guy

my new favorite is Sports Cards Central in Farmington - nice guys, solid selection.

There is supposedly one up in Lake Orion that is so so.

Oh, and there is a weekly show at the Elk lodge in Royal Oak on Wednesdays, this guy Bill has a stand there with great prices, bought a bunch from him this past weekend at gibraltar.

Grand Slam no. The one in Lake Orion is great but high prices.

This is true, among other things.

What else has been said about Grand Slam?

He is overpriced, but I've never had issues myself.

A lot of people don't know that 30 minutes outside of Detroit there are some of the nicest cities in the country. Oakland county (where I, and most others from MI on this board live), is one of the top ten richest counties in all of America.

Back in 05 I think, I bought like 22 packs from a box out of 24 (cause that's all he had left). The product was suppose to have 4 autos/jersey cards per box. I got 2 crappy jerseys. Could have been terrible luck, but I have not and will never go back to that store again. Kinda sad if you think about it. The potential loss of money from me and many others....

Yep, In 2009 I busted 10 packs from a 10 pack box of Artifacts hockey (4 hits a box). I bought 4 one time, nothing. Bought 3 a week later, nothing. Bought the last 3 a week after, nothing. I asked if this box was one box and not mixed packs, he said yep. About 2 months later I saw him putting packs from another box to one box to make it full. I just put two and two together. Plus he is just rude.
