Cornwall - Jan. 21, 2012 - Dave Tierney is a Bank Manager at the Bank of Montreal, he is married and a father of five children, and he is also a small business owner. Tierney has partnered with local school teacher Steve Briere, and they are the proud owners of Dave & Steve's Sportscard Shop located at 812 Pitt Street (Unit 44 in the back) in Cornwall Ontario.
"I have been business partners with Steve Briere almost 3 years. Steve was one of my good customers and brought his expertise selling on eBay to the business. Our shop now focuses on three areas - the Shop, eBay (user name ottawa-valley-collectibles) and trade shows", explains Tierney.
The store carries mainly hockey and baseball sports cards and supplies, wax boxes and packs, new and vintage stuff, jersey's, soviengners, and memorabilia.
This is Tierney's third sportscards shop since 1990. He not only sells sports cards, but he collects them too. Tireney is a Toronto fan, and Briere is a Montreal Canaidens fan.
"I am a lifelong Toronto Maple Leaf fan and Steve is a lifelong Montreal Canadien fan which is the way it should be as our shop consists of roughly 50/50 Leaf/Canadiens fans."
Steve & Dave's Sportscard shop is not the house of commons, as some great hockey cards have been sold at the shop, and some amazing cards have been pulled out of packs.
"I have sold a couple of 1966-67 Bobby Orr Rookie cards which in my opinion is one of the most well known and valuable cards in the market. Our customers have had some recent big pulls (cards they have opened in packs) including a Bill Barilko 1/1 autographed card, a Michael Jordan Autographed card, a dual signed Sidney Crosby card and a Napoleon Bonaparte memorabilia card."
The shop offers a place to meet other collectors, sit down and open a box of cards and enjoy a hockey game on TV.
"We have a huge selection of Jersey cards and Autograph cards, many featured in our on-going, regularly stocked 5 for $20 promotion at the store", says Tierney.
Dave & Steve's Sportscard Shop is located at 812 Pitt Street Unit 44 (around back of the City Centre Plaza). Their hours are Monday to Friday from 7 to 9pm and Saturdays from 8am to 5pm. On Sundays you can often find Dave and Steve at Trade shows.
