Last month, we announced America’s Best Card Shop in conjunction with some fantastic partners like Topps, the Miami Marlins, and Blowout Cards. Today, our hunt for the best LCS in the country gets even better as we add two more all-star partners.
Loupe is thrilled to welcome PSA and All Sports Marketing aboard as we name America’s Best Card Shop. Everyone in the hobby is already familiar with PSA as an industry leader in grading and authentication. Their involvement further validates the core idea behind the contest: That small businesses and local card shops are integral to this hobby we all love, and they need to be recognized and celebrated.
All Sports Marketing is a prominent distributor that has been helping stock hobby shops around the country for over 30 years. All Sports Marketing has generously contributed $20,000 to the Grand Prize package, as a way to give back to the stores they’ve been working with for more than three decades.
Thanks again to PSA, All Sports Marketing, and all our other incredible partners for teaming up on America’s Best Card Shop to shine a spotlight on the hardworking small businesses in the hobby. And remember that there’s still time to nominate a trading card shop that you love. Just fill out this form by April 30 and you’re entered. We’ll announce the finalists in mid-May, and then the winner on-stage at the National in late July. Stay tuned because there’s a ton of excitement still to come!
