About a month ago, I started going to a card shop called Valley Sports Cards in Tarzana,CA. This shop was recommended to me by Dodgerbobble. This shop isn't very close to me. It takes me about a half an hour to get there. But, the drive is worth it.
One of the better aspects of this card shop is the bid board. People pin up some random cards on a wall once a week and you bid on the items. Ebay style! Except it's in person and interactive. I even put some items up there to get a few extra bucks on something more fit for my collection. Since, this shop is in Dodger territory a lot of people put up Dodger items for bidding.
Gagne is my boy so, I had to pick this one up. He has a nice drunken, lumber jack beard going on. I hope Gagne gets a job with the Dodgers as a coach someday. Gagne can teach the young ball players how to use roids yet still have a beer gut.
