About us

Jon has been collecting sports cards and memorabilia for decades, annually selling items at the National Sport Collector Convention and maintaining connections with other collectors in the circuit. In 2014, he began the process of creating this web site to list and catalog his items. The site launched in 2015 and will now support a new storefront in Shelbyville, Tennessee, opening an hour outside of Nashville and thirty minutes from Lynchburg, the home of Jack Daniels. After years of imagining what this one-of-a-kind shop would look like, Jon is ready to invite people in to engage their imaginations, fill their collections, learn about the history of sports, and perhaps begin a new lifelong hobby or passion of their own.

We are a one-of-a-kind web site and shop selling vintage collectible sports cards, vintage sports equipment--often in the original packaging--from the 1800's to the 1970's, vintage uniforms, and antique sports memorabilia including programs, tickets, pennants, sports-themed advertising, trophies, and so much more! At the shop, we offer graded cards as well as boxes of loose cards for the card hunter to sort through at one of our multiple sorting stations. The embodiment of our online store, it's a not-to-be-missed destination experience for collectors, sports fans, and history buffs.

Not everything on this site is in the store, and not everything in the store is on this site. Be sure to contact us if you have questions or are looking for specific items!
