Thanks for visiting Jersey Coast Collectibles!
Let me introduce myself. I am Ed from the lovely state of New Jersey. Lovely? NOT!! LOL!!! Unfortunately, with todays economy, I am stuck here in this godforsaken state for the time being. They say the grass is always greener, but I am sure no matter where you go, there are problems. So I just hang in there.
I grew up on Long Beach Island on my father’s Marina in Surf City and spent countless days and nights on the water. Fishing is my first passion, and I still spend countless days and nights out on the water.
Besides fishing, my second passion is collecting sports cards and sports memorabilia. I have been collecting since I was a kid. Back in the days of the ole baseball cards in the bicycle spokes! Sure don’t see that much more, now do we? I am in my 50’s now, and have amassed quite a personal collection, that I just don’t have the heart to part with….yet!
I started out selling on Fleabay back in 1999 just to move some of my excess cards, and to make a little extra to buy more for my personal collection. It was fun at the time, but with the fees and policies so out of control on there, I left and opened up my own shop and have never looked back. I do run a few auctions from time to time, but that is few and far between. I use Fleabay now for cheap advertising. LOL!
I go to as many card shows in my area as possible looking for deals, and I also purchase high end items from the bigger auction houses from time to time. When I find a good deal, I break it up and pass it along to my customers. I have a full time job. This is just a hobby for me, it’s fun, and it’s good to know that the people buying my items are going to appreciate them for many years to come. And its nice to make a little profit too!
I also carry a large variety of premium hobby collecting supplies. From toploaders, team bags, card savers, and card sleeves, to hard to find vintage screw-down holders, the newest version of magnetic card holders, or premium acrylic card displays, you’ll find what you need to keep those trading cards protected and well displayed. We also carry a large selection of memorabilia holders and displays. Our inventory doesn’t stop there, we stock a full inventory of items from BCW, Pro-Mold, Ultra Pro, Cardboard Gold, and Ball Qube. These companies are the industry leaders in the protection of comic books, gaming cards, coin collections, currency collections, postcards, photos and more.
If you do not see what you are looking for, just contact me and I will be more than happy to see if I can help you out.
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about me, and I hope you enjoy shopping in my little store.
