On the other hand, West's Sportscards (118 Ave, very close to Rexall Place) is quite the opposite. The store is chaos and the owner (not sure what his name is) is very friendly and helpful. The chaos of the store adds to the character of the place and they always have what I am looking for - no matter how small and insignificant. I went in yesterday and spent only ten bucks but was treated like gold.
Whenever Vancouver has the big show, they come to Vancouver to set up. I usually end up spending most of my money on them/their customers. Moe usually brings all his Nash cards he or his customers has and I just pick up the ones I need. Prices on packs/boxes are reasonable as well.
