Default Moving to San Diego: Card shops?

Just like the title says, I got a job in SoCal and am heading out west! Anybody know of any card shops in north San Diego County? I'm moving to San Marcos and may want to stop in to one every now and then. Help is appreciated.

I've watched some Youtube box breaks and there is a kid (cisco-something) that video tapes his breaks from a shop in Chula Vista. I don't recall the shop off hand but if you look up BOX BREAKS on Youtube you will run across his stuff. There might be 1 or 2 other stores but I haven't really looked around when I was down there.

Can't help you with hobby shops but, WELCOME to SoCal
The earthquakes, wildfires and mudslides are more fun than tornados
PS: San Diego area also has Sink holes, entire streets just up and disappear

Really you are moving to a great place

Welcome again to the land of 8.75% sales tax and maybe Ebays MEG for governor(I hope not)

I have been here for 5 years and only started searching a few months ago. I have not found one I like yet.

FYI - Chula Vista is quite a ways from north county San Diego.

stick to Blowout.

Clairemont Sports Cards has been around for years, i remember going there as a kid 20 some years ago. prices are pretty high though.

if you have the time, PJ's Sports Cards in Chula Vista is worth the trip. Cisco69 on Youtube gets all his stuff from there and the owner, Harry is one of the best.

my knowledge of north county isn't very good, hopefully someone chimes in with some other ideas.

I work up there but haven't checked any out yet. I did go to a shop in Santee but the prices seemed real high and I cant remember the name. Hard for me to buy with a 40% price premium.

Man I plan on moving to North San Diego County, probably Oceanside, I was hoping there would be more choices for shops then here in Central CA but it doesn't look like there is too many, the east coast has them all lol.

Clairemont Sports Cards is what I was referring to and, yes, the prices were all high compared to what you see online. I have stopped by a few others, but all had higher prices (a decent markup) than stores that sell online.

I would just drive up to LA and attend the shops there as there are many good ones! Also, Frank & Sons is a huge warehouse that has multiiple dealers with low prices on wax - usually on Wed nights and all day Saturdays. Enjoy the move to sunny CA!

I would recommend Clairemont Sportscards at least for the experience. I know people would say that the prices are high but compared to online wholesale prices, all LCS prices will be high. If you do buy boxes from Clairemont Sportscards you do get a 10% credit to get whatever you want in the store except for the singles. Bake and Dave run the store and they're pretty good guys.

And yes I would recommend Frank n Son's as well. I frequent that place about once every month.
