About Us

Rich Layton has been collecting cards since he was 6 years old. He used to collect with his father, who helped him build a card shop in the attic of his childhood home. Rich’s friends would come over and they would all trade cards together. As he grew older he stopped collecting, but quickly remembered what he loved about collecting when his wife, Sara, came home with a box of 2011 Topps Series 2. 

Rich started to do research and saw how different collecting was from the 80s and 90s. He ended up on YouTube watching group breaks and thought ‘I can do this and bring something special to the table”. Laytonsportscards.com launched in September, 2012 with breaks from their small apartment in Cape May, NJ. All of Rich’s hard work and determination helped LSC grow and their very first hobby shop was opened in December, 2012. 

Layton Sports Cards relocated from New Jersey to Florida and grew from four team members to twenty and continues to grow. Our 7,000 sq ft facility opened in September, 2021.  Come visit our shop in Apopka, Florida, just outside of Orlando.

Mission Statement:

“At Layton Sports Cards, we share our love of collecting in a family friendly online environment”

We have always believed that collecting should be enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds. That is why you will not hear our group breakers use offensive language. We choose to keep our live chat rooms PG. We respect the rights, differences, and dignity of others.
