Rublemizers Sports Cards, Comic Books and Collectibles

Rublemizers Sports Cards, Comic Books and Collectibles moved Sept. 1 to 3160 S. Campbell Ave. The store, which sells comic books, sports cards and collectible toys, operated for two years at 1960 S. Glenstone Ave. Owner Danial Ruble said his lease was up and he decided to look for a more visible site. The 1,000-square-foot Campbell Avenue space, which is shared with Double Play Sports, is about the same size as the old location, but Ruble said it affords more wall space for merchandise. Relocation costs were about $2,500, said Ruble, who works by day as an exterior masonry subcontractor. Hours: 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone: (417) 882-0070.
