Default Pittsburgh, PA?

Anyone know of any shops in Pittsburgh. I just started back into collecting about 6 months ago and all the shops I remember from when I was a kid are closed now.

I just did a search it looks like there may be another Sport Cards Etc on 60 heading towards Robinson.

Yeah, it's between Moon Run and Robinson, right across from the old Drive In on 60.

There is a better one at the Ross Park Mall price wise. The one on 60 has the best selection I've ever seen in a shop but you better have your wallet ready.

Hahaha. Amen to that unfortunately. I do buy packs from there now and then as they do have usually pretty usual prices for my area on packs, but I look at older boxes and cringe at some of the prices, but pick up hard to find supplies up there when I can because it costs just as much to get it throw blowout when I'm not buying boxes.

When you say the Ross Park Mall store are you talking about Steel City Collectibles????

There is also one off of Greentree called greentree sports cards i think and he is cheaper on some boxes but has alot of the magic cards and those guys in there off and on. Really strange hours too and sometimes just randomly closed.

My shop is in the north hills of Pittsburgh. Competitive wax prices when the product first comes out. When we have to reorder our prices do go up a little. We have a 6 million card inventory with alot of vintage and auto/gameused stuff. Currently renovating but are working 15 hours a day to get the inventory organized and making cosmetic changes to the shop.
