Erick- I remember it being small and expensive, but that was over 10 years ago...Looks like they just moved to E. 57th St. Give us a full report, if you go.

Default Nothing of note in NYC

There are no card shops of note in NYC.

If you are looking to buy baseball cards this is not your town.

Alex MVP is now basically just a comic shop

Briganti is really for the coin and paper money crowd

Gotta Have It is very expensive high end memorabilia (think of items like Bob Dylan's High School Yearbook) he does have a T206 Wagner in the shop... it is PSA Authentic - Altered

I worked construction in NYC and anytime I had a job in the area I would visit Briganti. They always had some cool baseball memorabilia and signed items. Although its been awhile since I've been there if you look on their website it looks like they still carry some nice pieces.
Have fun. NYC is a great place

Default clarification

while i did state that Briganti is more for the coin and paper money collector, they do have a nice selection of signed baseballs and a good amount of high-end cards... but you will not get a low price.

Disappointing to hear about Alex's MVP. Before it moved (and I moved) it was a block from my house, so I went every other weekend for supplies and to look around. Only ever really had one card I needed and didn't get it as I didn't want to buy the full set for one card, but it was cool looking around.

Agree it's not a baseball city though. I'm assuming rents too high for shops to last because there has to be interest there given the strength of its sports fans.

Alex MVP I recall for 3 reasons back around 1999: 1) he gave me decent prices for old Yanks/Dodgers/Giants cards 2) he sold me, then quickly took back, an ungraded Duffy Mayo Cut that I determined was fake 3) he went over to his furniture shop and dug out some prized cards, including a 1914 CJ Marquard, ungraded, could have been reprint, that I took a chance on and paid $200. Later sold it as PSA NM for $4400....
