Default Toronto Sports Card Expo

Is anyone else going to the Toronto Sports Card Expo this weekend (May 3-5)? I'll be there on Sunday. More hockey cards than baseball, obviously, but it's still a fun show.

Default Toronto Show

I haven't been to a card show in years and when I did they were just small local shows. If I decide to start going to shows again, that would be the one I'd go to. I'm just up the 401 in Ottawa.

Go Sens!!!

This was "THE" year the Jays were going to make some serious noise with the off-season acquisitions they made. One of the best teams on paper. Too bad the game wasn't played on paper! Now they are seriously stinking out the joint! I'll have to watch old video of their back-to-back World Series wins in the meantime. Wait, I can't even do that! I don't have a VHS player anymore.

Default Card shop help?

About 4-5 years ago I found a great old sportscard/memorabilia shop in downtown Toronto. I loaded up on some 1950s/60s non-sports cards, a few tobacco baseball cards and about a dozen 1954-55 Topps hockey cards (overpaid a bit for the hockey, but they were NICE...)

I can't remember the name of it, but in doing an online search I think it might have been "Fastball Collectibles" (?). I spoke to a gentleman on the phone who said he closed his shop in 2010 to sell his items online only.

My question for our friends in Toronto - Does anyone know of any good card shops in the downtown area (that are open on weekdays)? I'm making a visit next week and have some free time on Monday.

Unfortunately, there are no card shops in downtown Toronto that would interest a vintage collector.

It's possible the place you're thinking of is/was on the corner of King St W & John Street. I've only been there twice. The first time was probably 8-9 years ago and I was collecting 50s stuff, so it wasn't bad. The last time (maybe 5 years ago) I was there one half had been turned into a Tim Horton's coffee shop. No idea what the place looks like today.

Regards,

Richard.

The store (at King and John) Richard referred to is Legends of the Game. It looks much the same as it did 5 years ago (still beside the Tim Hortons). It has some vintage baseball and, although I don't usually look too much at the hockey cards, I think it has a decent hockey selection. If you're in downtown TO, it is worth checking out, although I would temper your expectations.

I don't know of any other card stores in downtown TO.
