The Baseball Card Shoppe in Madison was flooded recently and the owner Tom didn’t have flood insurance (his carrier dropped it just this past year) An estimated $300,000 of losses occurred. See the pics below. Read the stories from The Wisconsin State Journal and the Sports Collector Daily. If you feel inclined to donate some money I’ve set up a GoFundMe for Tom. Click here to help out.
I recently got back into collecting cards this summer and was really bummed when I saw the damage. It had become a spot my 5 year old daughter and I would go together on the weekends.
