More Than Just a Hobby – October 29, 2023

One of the stories we all love to see/hear/read about in the hobby community below here…….
JJ and his dad are customers of the shop and personal friends of mine. JJ came in for his birthday and opened a mystery bundle Envelope (6 packs).
One of the packs inside was a 19-20 Series 2 Hobby Pack, before he ripped the pack i let him know to be careful in the event he was lucky enough to hit a high gloss Young Gun……we opened the pack together and lo and behold there was a first print high gloss 1/10 Young Gun of Joel Farabee inside!
A patient wait after submission to PSA Canada and we were fortunate enough we took care of the card becauae we achieved the coveted PSA 10!
We all love Stories like this and this is what the Hobby is all about!

💥CARD SHOW #13 is in the books and it was one to remember!💥 This started out like every card so we host, at the shop by 7:45am, setting up and greeting our friends and vendors setting up. The day turned out to be extra eventful as an unexpected visitor from out of town showed up to support. He is a long time friend of mine and supporter of the shop, he showed up with his son to surprise us. He ended up hitting a card that fit in my collection so we added another swap tonour history of trades. That was followed up by some other unexpected visitors out of Medicine Hat that ended up crashing the party and had a couple of massive pulls at the end of the day, including a 1/1 Bill Ranford autographed shield. Summertime is here and the playoffs may be over for most Canadian teams, but it was great to see the regular friendly faces and also meet a lot of new friends and card collectors as well. As always pizza was enjoyed by all from the shops favourite location in Leduc Buster’s Pizza & Donair. Just want to thank everyone who showed up and set up and supported online yet again, you are the difference makers for us and the engine that keeps the shop going. 🤘🏻🍻❤️
