our history

Collections can be a source of pride and enjoyment. At Nick's, we take great pride in helping you start or build a collection. We offer superior products at great prices.

We also offer a fun, laid-back atmosphere. It is not uncommon for parents and kids to browse the store for hours or for customers to come in and chat about sports.

In business at the same Coit and Campbell location for 27 years, Nick's has seen generations of young sports fans grow up in our store. We hope to continue to keep kids enthused and interested in collecting and enjoying sports cards and memorabilia.

Nick Redwine started collecting sports cards as a young kid in the 1950s in Oklahoma. He would go to the local grocery store and buy packs for a dime. After graduating from college, Nick rediscovered his collection in old shoe boxes and continued to buy more.

In late 1985, Nick and his wife Debbie went to their first card show, and their love for the hobby took over. They set up at shows in Oklahoma and South Carolina before eventually settling down in Dallas. The store has been in the same location since July 15, 1989 and is the only sports cards and memorabilia store left in Dallas.

In March 2016, Nick and Debbie sold the store to longtime customer and avid collector Dean Fuller. Dean became a customer when he would take his two sons, Josh and Jake, to Nick's when they were kids.


Ever since, Dean has focused his collection on vintage cards and all types of memorabilia. Before taking over at Nick's, he practiced law in Dallas for over 30 years.


To this day, Nick's proudly remains a family-owned business.

Fortunate to be in business at the same location for over 25 years, Nick's takes pride in being part of the fabric of the thriving North Dallas business community. With such great customers, we can't help but give back. We regularly donate items to non-profit or charity auctions.


Recently, the Sports Card Club, a group of 9-year-old avid collectors and Nick's customers from Episcopal School of Dallas, invited owner Dean Fuller to speak at a meeting. Dean happily provided the youngsters with advice about collecting, showed them some awesome cards, and gave each club member a famous Nick's Grab Bag.

"The owner helped me find the perfect gift for my husband. He didn't over sell or try to tell me information that he knew I didn't know to try and get me to buy something just because I thought it was priceless. He could tell I was out of my element and instead of taking advantage, he educated and was honest. A much appreciated quality in this world that lacks these morals and ethics anymore. An autographed photo on a plaque of Nolan Ryan and Pete Rose. My husband's eyes blew up the second he saw it. Thank you for all your help and not trying to sell me something I clearly knew nothing about. Many businesses could learn much for the way this man runs his business."
