I started collecting hockey cards around 1985. I have amassed quite the collection over the past 30 years. I'm always looking for deals in my hometown of Winnipeg. I have found that the best places to buy cards locally are Mulvey Flea Market, Cancentral Card & Supply, and First Row Collectibles. There are about 10 different places throughout my city, but those are my preferences.
I buy a lot of vintage hockey cards from Mulvey. I buy all my boxes and supplies from Cancentral. And I buy singles, autographs, and Winnipeg Jets autographs and cards from First Row Collectibles(www.firstrow.ca). I highly recommend to check these out.
