Back in the 1970's and 1980's we only carried vintage Sportscards, Autographs and Memorabilia.  After years on the road, setting up at shows all around the country, we began promoting weekly sports collectibles shows in Michigan.  After 20 years as a show promoter and store owner in Roseville (WOO HOO Roseville Plaza) we opened our first SportsCard Central store in Sterling Heights at Hall Road and Schoenherr.  We moved closer to home at 14 Mile and Orchard Lake Road before Papa Johns needed our space.  We tried bringing on partners, but that ended badly.  We have now landed at 359 Summit Drive Waterford, I  48328.  Hours are by Appointment unless we have a Live Viewing for our current Auction.  We are excited to bring the power of our knowledge to your fingertips.  We are currently BUYING all Collections of Value.  But more importantly, we are now accepting on consignment all items of value for our regular auctions.  Call or text today to make arrangements for a meeting.  You can text photos to 248-626-4300.. .
