Located in beautiful downtown Kelowna, British Columbia, Player’s Choice Sportscards & Collectibles is the ultimate destination for sports collectors in Western Canada!
The store has something for everybody: an inventory of over five million cards, all the latest sport and non-sport product releases, a wide range of autographed memorabilia, customized canvas prints of top stars, and many rare and unique collectables.
Whether you’re looking for the last elusive card to complete your set, or for a prime centrepiece for your man cave, Player’s Choice has what you’re looking for!
The store opened in July 2005, and quickly earned a reputation for being one of the premier hobby shops in Canada.
Due to its location in a popular destination city, Player’s Choice has attracted many superstars to come through its doors for in-store autograph appearances. Such luminaries as Jean Beliveau, Johnny Bower, and Gerry Cheevers have appeared in the store and delighted fans of all ages. On top of that, private signings with the greatest players in the game like Gordie Howe and Guy Lafleur have provided collectors with amazing memorabilia that will be treasured for a lifetime.
For the past decade, Player’s Choice has had strong relationships with several sports card manufacturers, earning Certified Diamond Dealer status with Upper Deck.
The store’s owners, Dean Draginda and Jason Wobshall, regularly attend major industry events where they can provide insight and feedback to the card companies, as well as expand their own wealth of knowledge and experience. Most recently, Dean and Jason attended the Industry Summit in Hawaii, and over the years they have travelled extensively to trade shows in Toronto, Edmonton, and other major locations in North America.
Player’s Choice is located at 470 Cawston Avenue.
It is just around the corner from Prospera Place, the home of the Western Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets. The Kelowna Rockets team has produced such NHL stars as Shea Weber, Jamie Benn, Leon Draisaitl, and Josh Gorges. If you’re a fan and collector of any of those players, or the teams they play on, you can count on finding some amazing cards and other collectables in the store.
It has been a tremendous honour for Jason and Dean to be involved in such a business for more than ten years.
They have many special events planned this year for their valued customers, including autograph sessions, contests, spectacular trade nights, and much more.
Kelowna has a wide range of sports fans and collectors, and it has been their pleasure to be Kelowna’s hobby shop of choice–and they look forward to continuing to grow with you!
