WHO ARE WE?
Simicards is a family owned and operated small business that deals in the selling of sports cards and more. We have been collecting sports cards for 30 years and have been in the selling business for 25!
Over the past couple of years, we have been able to build a large selection. We have more than 650,000 cards in our Beckett Marketplace store while our eBay store has over 2,000. Every day our inventory grows. With over 2 million cards in the warehouse still waiting to be sorted for your collection, we are always buying and offering newer product and old. Our goal is to offer you the largest selection possible, for a fair price and unbeatable customer service!
My name is Tony Velarde. My grandfather was a sports fanatic and introduced me to his love of sports. I began to familiarize myself with the teams and players and eventually became a fan myself. I could remember sports stats and trivia on the back of the cards by heart and could call them out whenever someone mentioned a player or team. As I grew into my teens, I began collecting sports cards. Through my years of collecting, the words of a wise man resonated within me. He shared a secret that would grow my collection for free. To this day, his secret has rung true! So began my business venture...rest in peace Max!
During the card collecting craze of the 90's, we had three card store locations in the South Bay of California. My first store was located in Torrance. After my parents moved to Simi Valley, I decided to follow and purchased one of the oldest card shops in Southern California, Baseball Cards Etc. of Simi Valley. The store was a common stomping ground for the local collectors. Unfortunately, we closed the location for various reasons, but mainly to spend the time with my mother who was ill with cancer. After her passing, I went to work for a large card distributor to learn a few more things in the business. I still had a large selection of cards in my possession and I wanted to gain some knowledge about the changes in the hobby. With my inventory on hand and a new found knowledge of the World Wide Web and eBay, my family and I decided to make use of the invaluable internet by launching simicards.com
Simicards.com offers you a one stop location for all your sport card collecting needs. In addition, we offer unbeatable customer service! I have found that it is crucial to know who you are doing business with and how your products are handled and cared. With the help of my wife and four kids, we work tirelessly buying boxes, sorting and pricing our large inventory so that our customers can select from a large variety of cards that are authentic and in their best condition.
We have many ideas and plans for this site down the road. This was the first step! We hope we can take it together! If you have any questions or recommendations, we'd appreciate your feedback!
Please enjoy your search through our vast selection and we look forward to serving you!
