Back in the 1980s, Ab D Cards was one of the top sports card stores in Winnipeg.
My husband remembers taking the #11 bus from his home in North Kildonan down to the store on Portage Avenue. The card store has moved several times – it’s had various homes on Portage Avenue and even in Calgary, Alberta.
Now located at 340 Portage Avenue, you can find Judy handling the comics, sports memorabilia and souvenirs in the back half of Book Fair.
You’ll find Ab D cards here:
Or if you’re walking inside from Portage Place to the Bell MTS Centre, look for these signs and head down the staircase.
Judy no longer carries any sports cards at the store but she is able to order them in from the stores main storage building Calgary, Alberta.
Here’s what you’ll find at Ab D Cards.
A large selection of lapel pins from hockey, football, and other sports.
Even a Banjo Bowl pin!
Hockey pucks, many more than you see here.
CFL and NHL banners.
Photos – current hockey players, retired players, current and older Stanley Cup and Team Canada photos; NFL, older MLB photos, older NBA, WWF wrestling.
