Yesterday I made a trip to Three Stars Sportscards in Bloomington, MN.
The shop was very sparsely populated. This is in stark contrast to their other store in Roseville which I visited some months ago. I did find this Eduardo Rodriguez 2014 Bowman Sterling Autograph which was on my want list.
I was at the counter getting ready to pay for this single card when I asked the lady working there what was behind the barrier in the back of the store. I had seen rows and rows of card boxes on shelves, but the area was blocked off with signs that said only employees could enter. She told me that was their online inventory back there. She showed me a PC that was set to their online Beckett store. I was glad my want lists were up to date as I was able to punch everything in and search for it. I ended up with 60 cards, mostly Red Sox cards I needed in pursuit of team sets. Here are some of my favorites.
Usually when you're at the store and want to find the sportscards, you look for the candy aisle. This store I stopped at on the way home yesterday had nothing but candy aisles, but alas, no cards.
