Salina has one, not great, but it's a shop. Wichita has 2, hays used to have one and there is one or two in Topeka which maybe closed now, one in Kansas City that I know of.
I'm in wichita as well, welcome.
Looks like someone has a Shocker hand in their avatar!

Yes, they deal mostly in games and gaming cards, but usually have some wax.
The place is called the Arena, they're easy to look up. They are located downtown off of Sante Fe if you're familiar with Salina. If you haven't eaten there make sure you stop at Cozy Inn, it's out the back door of the Arena off of 8th street, it's small slider burgers, taste awesome, order and eat them outside, don't put them or a bag in your vehicle without a container that can seal perfectly tightly.

I stopped by there about a year ago when I was in Salina for work and they had a very interesting collection of everything. I think I picked up a Clyde Lovellette auto they had. I know they do sell some stuff on ebay and have bought a Chalmers card from then since and they are nice guys.

Correct, their eBay ID is kshop1 and they have over 65,000 feedback, lots of games and gaming plus movies. They do a lot of Kansas team stuff and usually have some good chiefs KSU and KU stuff. The owners name is Todd and he's a big guy and super nice, by the way, if you run into the mastiff dogs they are huge but love people, so don't worry if you see a 150 lb dog.

Alright! I'm a Kansan too! I live in Newton, so I go to Rock's show and both the LCS's every once in a while. I'll have to check that place out in Salina!

I'd love to get a Wichita-area club going and maybe do some break & trade nights or something.

I have been to Rock's Place a couple of times when I been passing through or in Wichita. I have never been to the other place. I want to go one of these weekends and check out the card show there. Are they pretty good?

I have been to Craig's show in OP and there never is really a lot of KU stuff there.

. . . and yeah those dogs are freaking HUGE!!!

Rock's shows seem to be 70% baseball, 25% football, and 5% basketball. Never been to one of Oliver's shows, but his shop is more football oriented. The KU stuff you'll find at a Wichita show is way over priced, at least if you're buying from the guy whose booth is at the center of the west wall. There's a seller on the north wall that has some KU stuff.

Pretty much the same at the OP shows.

Yeah there is a guy in Parson that has a ton of KU stuff that he buys and then resells on ebay. His prices are more then I would be willing to pay and I have gotten cheaper on ebay. I wonder if it is the same guy . . .
