America's Pastime is a storefront sports card business since 1989, selling vintage baseball cards,other sports cards,autographed sports items,sports gift items and sports memorabilia with our Bergen County store location for the past 16 years in Fair Lawn, N.J. We sell sports cards from all major sports from Vintage years through the present day. We also carry packs and sets of all sports cards. Our vast inventory includes all years of vintage sports cards from the '30's,'40's,'50's,'60's and '70's in baseball cards, also football cards,basketball cards and hockey cards as well as sports autographs, vintage sports memorabilia and non sports cards. But our focus has always been the vintage baseball cards from Tobacco era through Pre-War baseball cards to the '50's, and all sports cards from the '60's and '70's.
America's Pastime thrived in the late '80's and early '90's, survived the tough times of the 1994 strike year and the few years afterwards. The comeback year of 1998 with the Sammy Sosa/Mark McGwire home run chase brought the hobby back and we thrived again for a few years until the 9-11 attacks. Now with the tough economy we rely on our steady customers from our store location in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. Our regular customers from all over buy vintage sports cards, sports memorabilia and sports autographs from our web site and those that we meet at baseball card shows across the country keep us going and we appreciate all of you.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Elyse for over 25 years and we have two boys. My son Aaron 21 is a senior at Syracuse University. David, 18 runs track and does pole vault for his high school and also plays baseball. He is also a solid student in school and is off to Muhlenburg College in PA in the fall '13.
And of course, there is my third son Freddy Dunkin McDuff, the only one who truly appreciates me. He is our West Highland White Terrier who we spoil rotten. We have recently added a new addition, Lily, our Lab/Beagle mix puppy. Freddy is none to happy about this.
