Default Anyone know of any card shops in the Orlando area??

I'll be down there this weekend and wanted to know if anyone knows of any shops. Preferably closer to universal studios.

I think there is one in Lakeland which is maybe 25 minutes from Universal. A lot of the card shops in that area focus more on baseball and football. SO call first.

I live in Lakeland its a bit further than 25 minutes probably closer than an hour. There is a card shop there with decent prices on wax but not a ton of inventory. I honestly wouldn't make the trip from universal, hit up the one on OBT mentioned above.

this Lakeland is more of a 25min drive from Universal. Lately the Lakeland store has not had much either. I've been to the one others have mentioned a few times also and i agree with what has been said about that one as well

Orlando Sports Card South is the best place but Big League Cards is amazing thats my LCS and they always have nice Giveaways and everything but it is a little out of the way of Universal but you should go.

You like Big League? Ive been once and all they had were overpriced boxes and the singles consisted of base rookies (heyward, posey, etc..). He had around $4 a piece on these also.... Did they change the store around??



Also for any locals stay away from KnT sports and collectibles.... You will be addicted and start spending thousands a month on singles..... Just a warning...

never been to KnT (or heard of it).. Big League is too far for me, but wanna visit one day. Orlando SCS has 50% off all singles, but all cards are marked up.. so it looks like you're getting a good deal.. but some good singles come in and go, and some customers leave some cards for sale, lots of Kobe, MJ, sometimes.. I leave my cards there from time to time for sale..

In Ormond... The owner took over baseball card exchange and has moved since then to a new spot..
