Our wallet is bigger than our brain.

The most expensive part of running a website like ours is time. It takes a long time to do anything. By far the most tedious and time consuming task is sorting and entering cards into our inventory. In the past we tried to pace our acquisitions with our ability to enter the cards into inventory.
Over the last several months we have picked up quite a few decent sized collections. We currently have between 1 and 1.5 million cards waiting to be entered onto the website. It's not all late 90's filler either. We have practically every Topps base card from 1956 on sitting in storage.

Why do I tell you this? Because we are not buying right now, and we are devoting our time to getting as much of this onto the website as quickly as possible. In the last 3 days we've added about 6 thousand cards to the website. Keep your eye out on the website. Chances are if you need it, we've got it, and we are going to get it listed soon. Need it now? Just send us an email. We'll dig through boxes to see if we can't find it for you.
