Exclamation Illinois Guys - Quick Help!!

The wife and I are headed up to Chicago today and I was hoping someone could tell me of a good card shop I could make her stop at either in the W or SW burbs. We have the GPS in the car so I should be able to find places. Just need to know where they are. Thanks!

Stop by Matts Sports Cards in Joliet - 98 Barney Drive - it is just a couple of miles off of I55 right after you cross I80 -

He is open from noon to 7PM today - when you get there tell Jeff (the owner) that Pat told you to ask for the "friends and family rate" - he usually has a good selection and his prices are OK but nothing like you find on the net.

I took my kids to the MSI to see the exhibit - it is cool but some of the original costumes that they have on display remind you that the original film was made in the 1970's

Good luck - crack some for me....

Ha! That's funny that you mentioned Matt's. I didn't get your reply before I left but on the way back I plugged "SPORTS" into the GPS and that came up so we stopped. I posted my break in the baseball breaks section.

Here's a link to how I did.

Great Pulls....given the hits, I'd say he's got a customer coming back if you make it back up that way!
