A word (actually a lot of words) of introduction.
For those who don''t know me, let me tell you a little bit about my business. I owned a retail sports card shop in San Diego for 15 years and sold the business in 1997. We moved to Bend, Oregon and now I do mail order full time. I have a LARGE inventory of sports cards in BASEBALL (1953 to present), FOOTBALL (1969 to 1995), BASKETBALL (1971 to 1995) and some HOCKEY (mostly 1990 to 1992).

As a collector there were a few things that bothered me about mail-order so I decided to eliminate those things when I started my business in 1978. The main difference between me and the "other guys" is that I send the cards on approval (WITHIN REASON!). That''s right, you get to see them before you buy them! Also I pay the shipping in the U.S on orders over $25.00. Orders under $25.00 will have exact shipping costs added. Discount orders of individual cards 25% off the total package price. I do not discount complete sets as they are so difficult to put together, but I do pay the shipping on them. I also attempt to give you a timely turnaround time, so you don''t have to wait a long time to see the cards. MY SERVICE IS DESIGNED TO HELP COLLECTORS COMPLETE SETS. If you are looking for major stars or rookies or older cards in nr-mt condition, then I''m probably NOT your guy.

Do you have extras/duplicates that you''d like to trade?? I have many want lists of cards that I am trying to track down for clients. I will offer 1/2 retail in trade credit for any help you can supply. (For example, you send me $100 in cards from my lists and receive a $50 trade credit). All my client lists can be found on my website.\n\nAttention football collectors: I''ve picked up a complete run of Topps football sets from 1977 thru 1986. I will be breaking these sets up and selling them as singles. So if you have any needs in those football years, I can probably help. So, if there are any singles you are looking for from 1951 to present or any complete sets from 1981 to present, please give my service a try.
Thanks for visiting Dave Shore Sports Cards. Please email or call me if you want to order any items or have any questions. Sincerely, Dave Shore'),


I keep everything on my web site up-to-the-minute. So don''t worry about sending me cards that I might have already picked up. I will still take any cards you find from ANY of my want lists. If I''ve already picked something up elsewhere, they will just go into my inventory.\n\nIt is extremely important that if you do find any help, that you keep the cards with the list to which they belong. You can imagine how confused I will be if cards are sent, and I don''t know to whom they belong. I appreciate all your time and efforts looking through my lists.
I realize that a listing of 80 want lists can be overwhelming. Therefore I''ve listed the sport(s), OTHER THAN BASEBALL, on that want list after the collector''s name. So if there is nothing after the collector''s name then that list contains ONLY baseball. Hope this helps some.

ALSO TO TRY TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO PERIODICALLY CHECK THE LISTS, THE DATE AFTER THE CLIENT''S NAME REPRESENTS THE LAST DATE THAT LIST WAS ADDED TO. ITEMS WITH AN (*) WITHIN THE WANT LIST ARE THE NEWLY ADDED ITEMS. HOPE THIS MAKES IT EASIER FOR MY WANT LIST CHECKERS!!!

(BK=BASKETBALL) ' '(F=FOOTBALL)' '(H=HOCKEY)' '(R=RACING)' '(G=GOLF)' '(O=OLYMPICS)
I understand that postage can get expensive. Since I don''t charge for shipping, I expect you to pick up the shipping for cards you are sending me. If you are sending a lot of cards, I''ll be glad to share the shipping costs.

I hope we can help each other out!'
