America’s Best Card Shop Finalists Announced


The field has gone from almost 1,500 down to just four. The search for America’s Best Card Shop, a competition presented by Loupe, is down to its finalists.

Since launching in March, over 1,400 submissions were received from collectors and community members nominating their favorite shops.

It proves that the foundation of the hobby is in community ties and the personal relationships that are forged over sports cards.”

Collectors can vote for their pick as top shop here.

The winner will be announced at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Atlantic City at the end of July. Besides the title, the grand prize package has items worth approximately $50,000.
