    Like everyone, Box Seat Cards is relieved that the store survived these last two years. COVID certainly made the early years of our store memorable. When Joe Coffman decided to take his love for sports trading cards and share it with the city of Champaign, he had no idea what a wild ride he was signing up for. Lock-downs ... Mask mandates ... the Christmas rush! Through it all Champaign's sports card lovers came to buy, sell and trade at Box Seat Cards.

    During the last two years, we have expanded our sports memorabilia and our stock of cards across all major sports. Look through our inventory, your hero is probably here just waiting for you. In good times and bad, we are always interested in growing Champaign's sports card & memorabilia community. Which is why we still make room for other avid collectors to display and sell their collections.

    If there is a positive side to lockdown, it's that kids had time to learn about Dad's or Mom's collection and got bitten by the bug themselves. Box Seat Cards still has our free card bins for young sports fans to start their collections. Whether you are young or old, a new fan or an experienced collector, Box Seat Cards & Collectibles is a must stop spot.
