As you may or may not have heard, the grand opening of our retail store experience is Saturday, July 30th, from 10 AM-4 PM. We're running a little series called "What to Expect...When You're Expecting a Memorabilia Store", and this is part 2: "What exactly will be for sale?"
With hundreds of thousands of items in stock, it's important to know that not everything will be on display (although it will be on site), and that some departments have higher inventory levels than others. It is HIGHLY recommended that you visit www.remixxd.com before you visit the store so you can see if we have what you're looking for. Do a search. Email us (email@example.com). Call us! (724-243-3546). I am, and by extension, my company, is by nature a people pleaser. We do not want to disappoint anyone!
Also, keep in mind that this is a new venture for us. We have a long history of selling online, but the store is going to be a brand-new clientele. We want to listen to you and learn what you want us to carry, and we will make it happen.
That being said, here are some sample numbers:
-We have nearly 30,000 different framed autographs and vintage advertisements in stock from all genres and dating back to the 1920s. The vast majority of our autographs have been authenticated by JSA, and if they haven't yet seen it, it comes with a LIFETIME money back guarantee.
Due to space constraints, a fraction of our framed inventory will be on display. If there is an item that you are definitely interested in, let us know ahead of time and we will have it ready.
-We have around 3,000 different action figures in stock from all major lines. All current figures will be on display. We buy our current toys and pop culture items factory-direct and get new shipments regularly.
-We have 700+ different Funko Pop figures in stock and up to 36 of any given variety. So multiplied out, we have thousands of them on hand. They will all be on display with the exception of chase figures which you can ask for or shop for ahead of time.
-We have approximately 1,500 vinyl record albums in stock. They will all be on sleeved and on display alphabetically, with an on-site turntable for listening quality. We also have around 200 autographed albums, framed and unframed, in stock.
-We have over 20,000 comic books in stock and on display. We are working to have all of them bagged and priced by opening day, but it's a Herculean task. The bulk are from the 1950s-1990s, but we do have thousands of modern comics as well. We do not currently carry new books, but are in the early stages of making that happen.
We have a very small variety of CGC graded books. Our inventory was much larger, but honestly, they sell quickly. This is a place where we know we need to grow.
-I hate to deliver this news, but we do not carry CCGs such as Magic, Pokemon, Dragon Ball, and Yu-Gi-Oh at this time. We also do not carry current sports card wax boxes.
All of this falls under the category of the resurgence in the trading card industry and the inability for distributors to add new accounts right now. Regardless of who you are or the size of your business, there are no new trading card accounts open for retailers at the moment. We tried and will keep trying. File this under "check back soon".
-We do have a growing variety of Anime figures and collectibles and we have many, many more ordered for the future.
-For card collectors: we have hundreds of CSG graded cards in stock, both modern and vintage, and showcased. Based on their company and turnaround time, we chose them to grade our more significant cards.
Outside of that, there are tens of thousands of cards that we are offering from collections we purchased at extremely low prices, especially in bulk. We just don't have the time to process all of them for online sales. I will be very honest: our sports card inventory has a lot of room to grow.
-We have around 200 different board games in stock, and it's a pretty even split between new/sealed and vintage. All are priced and on display.
-As for video games, we have most of the older system bundles in stock, but our selection of games has really sold down and needs replenished. We have some original Atari, Nintendo, Sega, etc., but we need to re-load.
-We have around 400 different beer tap handles in stock, with tons of obscure brands. These are not on display but we can access any you are looking for when you visit.
-We have approximately 5,000 vintage magazines in stock, including thousands of Life Magazine from every decade back to the 1940s, hundreds of TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, Mad, and many others. Right now, these are not on display but let us know what you'd like to see and we can access these for you.
-Diecast cars: we bought thousands of them in a collection last year (sealed and unsealed), but they are really hard to keep track of in our system. We are going to blow these out in dump bins beginning on Day One. If you are in to diecast you will want to be there for this, because this is not our area of expertise and there are sure to be some finds.
We are going to keep regular stock of any pop culture related diecast (Marvel, cartoon characters, Star Wars, etc) going forward, and they will be on display
-VHS: We have over 700 different in stock and in varying quantities. A small fraction of them are sealed. These are not currently on display but can be accessed quickly if you stop in.
Again, this is just a little guide, and just the tip of the iceberg. We have a pretty random inventory of collectibles, but once we enter a category, we like to have as comprehensive a selection as humanly possible. It's not easy to do that across as many categories as we carry, but we do as good a job as we can of having a diverse and interesting inventory.
