Default Where do you buy your cards?

Hello all,
just wondering where everyone gets their cards, looking for a reputable fairly priced place, I currently use ebay, this forum, and blowout cards.

Thank you

Here, ebay, and auction houses. No Craigs list for me.

Local bi-monthly card show, eBay, COMC and here. In that order in terms of volume.

Default Buying

Hey there,

I still go go show shows in my area and do some buying even though the prices are often way too high. It is nice to chat with others who love the hobby.

Most of my buying is done from auction houses, this board, and trusted sellers on eBay. I have never purchased a card off of Craigslist.

For post-war cards, particularly mainstream sets, commons and cards with higher production numbers, COMC is a great place. But the higher priced cards can be really a lot higher than other places (think Trout autos, Mantles, etc.).
My best experiences have been through this board, while I also use eBay, go to a local card show and just had my first auction win through Heritage on Sunday night. I haven't found a local card shop that fits the bill, yet.

Ebay, the National, major auctions and here. I would note that it appears that auction houses are trumping the National for the better cards, which is somewhat of a shame to me as it takes away some of the thrill of the hunt.

May your collecting be joyful,

Larry
