Have you been to Sports Card Connection?

Mike opened his sports card shop in 1990. Somehow that doesn’t feel like 28 years ago but it is! The store has moved locations several times and today you can find Mike hanging out in his cozy little shop at 51 St. Anne’s Road in Winnipeg.

Ignore the “For Rent” sign. Mike’s not planning on moving any time soon. He’s been here two years and the cost of rent is nearly perfect for him.

If you’ve never been to Sports Card Connection, just a tip. Park along Stranmillis Avenue. You’ll enter the building through the door on Stranmillis and turn right.

Inside the store, you’ll find shelves and boxes full of singles. That’s what Mike specializes in.

He’s got all of his cards – basketball, baseball, football, and hockey – organized by players and teams. All you have to do is tell him exactly what you’re looking for.
