Default Phoenix

I went to several card shops when I was in town, found a few singles to buy. I found it interesting there wasn't much wax at any of the stores. I also found it interesting there are only 2 card shows I the whole state on a regular basis. One at a mall and one in Glendale. Is there just no demand for wax or card shows in Phoenix?

I plan on being in Phoenix for several months out of the year now due to family moving out there. Is it worth looking for a place to hold another card show?

Fellow Ohio member here, Youngstown area. Anyway, while I lived in Avondale a couple years back for school I went to AZ sportcards which I think is in glendale. Decent shop but the owner had prices listed for upcoming products and when I went to the shop to buy some wax, the prices were higher. Not a cool move so I stopped going there. As far as shows go, there was one held in phoenix at a church that was a decent show but they had some good signers come. I know there are more shops but they were north of phoenix and I didn't go up that way very often.

The best shop in Arizona is Showtime Sport Cards located in Tempe, AZ. Well worth the travel time & drive.
