When it comes to me and this hobby, I can't think of too many things I keep from you guys. But there's one secret I've kept that I'm about to share with you now.
Two years ago, I discovered an online card shop called Jersey Coast Collectibles and over that time I've spent a nice chunk of my hobby budget over there. He consistently has great deals and lower than eBay prices.
Why did you keep this shop a secret? And why reveal it now? Well... I kept it a secret, because I wanted first shot at his deals. It's pretty simple... they have some of the best prices on vintage cards, autographs, memorabilia cards, rookie cards, inserts, parallels, sports figures, and supplies. Plus they offers free shipping if you spend $25 or more.
A few weeks ago, Ed (the owner) informed me that I was his #1 customer in 2012. He sent a nice care package to thank me for my business and I immediately felt bad. Ed has always been generous with me, however I've returned the favor by being selfish. Well that's no longer the case. I encourage all of you to stop reading this post and head over to Jersey Coast Collectibles to see what he has to offer.
In the meantime, I'm going to share the box full of goodies he sent me. Let's start off with the nice assortment of supplies:
I purchase most of my supplies from his shop, because it's hard to pass up the free shipping. Most of his supplies are equivalent or lower than my local card shops, so it's convenient to just buy from him.
He also sent me this autographed Poloroid of Tony LaRussa for my Oakland Athletics PC:
He also gave me this nice PSA 9 early 90's insert card of Michael Jordan:
And finally a nice manufactured patch for my Ray Lewis PC:
Thanks Ed for all of the great deals you've given me these past two years. I look forward to adding more items to my collection from your shop in the future. And thank you very much for this thoughtful, hand picked care package. I'm honored to be your top customer for 2012.
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
