There ain't nothing in those areas. I am in Shreveport and Longview has a dump of a shop. Texarkana used to have Collectors Vault but not sure if they are still there. They were an overpriced crap hole anyway boxes typically ran 4 times Ebay price.

Yea, there's 1 in Longview (Sportscard Shop) that has highly overpriced stuff, and the people that run the place won't come down on anything. They have 2013 Chrome baseball for $120/box, etc. They sell supplies and it's like $4 for a thing of toploaders, etc.

I just opened a small shop in Henderson in an antique mall. I sell mainly boxes and sets, a little bit of unopened product and singles and also carry supplies and becketts.

I don't have a ton right now because I'm fairly new. But my prices are very comparable to ebay (all singles marked at ebay or about 10% higher), and I have stuff like 3 for $1 notebooks of baseball inserts, football inserts and 1970s cards. Sell all Cowboys and Rangers in 2 for $1 notebooks. Also have some vintage baseball. Do mainly baseball and football.

I also have several things going on right now. For example, if you have kids, they can bring in their report cards and get $2 of store credit for every A or B they have. Beginning in a week or 2, we're going to have a stocking stuffer special. We'll have stockings stuffed with 1-3 cards. Each stocking will cost $1-2 (not sure of price yet because it's an idea I just got today) and could have anywhere from 3 cards that book for $2 each to cards up to $5 in BV.
