ONLINE CARD SHOW?

It's go time! Like going to a card show..... Many recent acquisitions and the need for space for more incoming has had the wheels turning(not that they ever stop) Most of the work has been completed in transitioning all cards on the site down to a dime. While not the ideal(nor how we wanted it to be) way of showing our inventory, the sheer volume of cards the likes of neither you nor I may ever see have nudged our hands towards attempting to show more stuff. We are trimming out(not listing) some cards that may help us to actually...

AS THINGS GO UP WE COME BACK DOWN TO A DIME

We have decided to "return to our roots" so to speak and have decided to go back to offering almost everything for just a dime. Several recent acquisitions are allowing us to share the good fortune with our partners and the changes should be completed within a week or less. News hit today that another site is increasing their base rate to a rate we were at(20 cents) which makes us proud to be at half that. In our first couple of years we had several growing pains and a massive learning curve in operating a website on all levels....

2022 Changes, Streamlining and Catching up

Our inventory is different than most bigger operations (where they seem to constantly file same or similar items together) You may see the same card 3 different times but rather than to go and file with the others we just continually #  to save some time as we have barely 1% of our entire inventory currently available on our 2 sites the other being here - https://www.tcdb.com/Collection.cfm/member/baseballcardstoreca/collection/1 (you can have these also just request them if you do) All the non-consigned cards are no charge and we prefer a maximum of 50 cards per order as in the past our layaway...

Topps Bunt and other ponderings

Do you? We Bunt our handle there is BASEBALLCARDSTORECA Just before we close our eyes and as we open them a little "bunting" goes on quietly so we are not heard. Is this spelling the end of real cards? Is this for real and a sign of where things are heading? -  https://www.ebay.ca/itm/274896314888?hash=item400118e208:g:tzgAAOSwkFVhD2VE Is this THE reason why we have lowered our prices again? Finally a question i can answer! NO, mostly because as our good friend Jon sings, I ain't gonna live forever and that's what it would take to get all these cards we have, added to the...

SHIPPING RATES BAD NEWS GOOD NEWS AND X-MAS DEADLINES

We are just about 100% set up and ready, ok not quite. There is an issue that has been bothersome for a while now and as mentioned in the title an average shipment to the US is 10$ and within our own country(Canada) even higher, i'll try not to make sense of that but need to act upon this. It may deter some or many but we are increasing our shipping rates not by choice rather by necessity. As much as it changes, in reality it doesn't take for example a 100 card purchase@10c per and it comes to 14.99...
