Mark’s Card Shop
Making Collecting Accessible to All
Hi! I’m Mark-- the owner of Mark’s Card Shop. I opened Chicagoland’s newest sports card shop in June of 2021. Owning a card shop has been a life-long dream...and I want to share why.
As you could guess, I was a sports card collector growing up. And the childhood memories of collecting still resonate with me today.
I remember visiting old card shops with my Dad (also named Mark!). We would check out the showcases, rip packs, and sometimes I would even get to walk out with some wax (sealed boxes).
I spent endless hours checking prices in my Beckett price guides, trading cards with kids in the neighborhood, or just reading the stats on the back of the cards.
If you know...YOU KNOW!
And I want others to KNOW.
Collecting has brought me so much joy over the years. I want it to do the same for you.
My goal for Mark’s Card Shop is to create lifelong memories with every visit. Whatever reason you stop by--to hang out, check out singles in the dollar box, mull over the showcases, or buy some new wax--I want it to be an experience you won’t forget.
Mark’s Card Shop makes card collecting accessible to everyone--from those about to start making memories collecting to those with decades of memories to share.
Something special happens when collectors get together. Our card shop is the perfect place to experience it!
I look forward to chatting with you and answering any questions next time you stop by the shop!
Oh...and if you’re looking for a specific product, player, team, or brand in the card shop or online, please contact me.
