About Tidewater Cards & Collectibles

Tidewater Cards & Collectibles has been in the trading card business since 1977, when Topps released its first run of movie cards on the blockbuster 'Star Wars', and has never looked back. After years of buying and selling at trade shows across the country, TCC joined the online market in 2000, and has been selling to dealers across the globe.  

Originally starting out exclusively in the "non-sports" card business during the late 1970s, TCC branched out to the baseball card market in the early 1980s, and then to football and basketball in the mid to late 1980s.  Since then, it has sold everything from minor league baseball sets, to unopened wax boxes, to graded memorabilia and autograph cards.  Whatever the hot trend is in the hobby, TCC will dabble in it, but still prefers to specialize in oddball, regional, and one-of-a-kind items on individual players and teams.
