Welcome to The Riptide Report

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

All of us here at 528 Collectibles are so excited to launch our blog, The Riptide Report. The Riptide Report will be dedicated to all things sports, cards, box breaks, and collectibles. Our mission is to provide informative and engaging content for collectors and enthusiasts alike. We believe that the Riptide Report has the potential to become a hub for collectors from all over the world to come together and share their experiences, opinions, and expertise. We invite you to join us in this journey, and to be a part of our growing community.

Who We Are

Whether you know us from our store or from our online breaks, we wanted to take this opportunity to reintroduce ourselves. At our core, 528 Collectibles is a family-owned business born out of the shared dream of four brothers. As is the case with any brothers, when the oldest gets into a hobby, the younger brothers usually follow suit. It all started with collecting baseball cards and Pokémon cards, and soon after expanded to basketball and football.

When we first started 528, it was born out of that love for sports and collecting. We never could have imagined where this journey would take us. We started with just an Instagram page, then built a website, opened a physical store, and now, we're even launching a blog. It's been an incredible ride, and we've come so far. But you know what? We're not done yet. There's still so much more to come.

Since embarking on this journey, we've had the pleasure of forming amazing friendships in the industry and have built a team of passionate collectors and enthusiasts. Our team is comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds, and we hope to bring a fresh and distinctive viewpoint to the world of collecting. We are all eager to share our knowledge and experiences with the community.

We believe that collecting is more than just a hobby. It's a way to connect with others, relive fond memories, and celebrate the achievements of our idols. We understand the thrill of opening a new pack of cards, the satisfaction of completing a set, and the excitement of finding a rare card. Our goal is to share that passion with others and to continue to build a community of collectors who share our love for the hobby.

What We Do

With the Riptide Report, we are dedicated to providing the best possible content for our readers. We understand that sports card collecting is a complex and constantly evolving industry, and we strive to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and developments. We plan on covering a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Trading cards: We will provide detailed reviews of the latest trading card releases, as well as tips and advice on how to build your collection.

  • Collectibles: We are going to cover a wide range of collectibles, ranging from autographed memorabilia to Funko Pop.

  • Industry news: We plan to keep our readers up-to-date with the latest news and developments in the sports card industry.

We are excited about the future of the Riptide Report and look forward to growing our community and providing the best possible content for our readers.
