Ellicott City, MD


Since 1991, sports card collectors in the Baltimore-area have had a go-to shop in the DugoutZone. Located in Ellicott City, the DugoutZone is a family-friendly shop where collectors can always expect to have an amazing hobby experience. Owners Rick and Dianne Hubata have worked very hard to build a fun and active collecting community around the shop. Collectors flock to the many regular monthly events he holds for collectors of every experience level -- events like trade nights, pack wars, case breaks and the occasional in-store autograph appearance from a local pro athlete are incredibly fun for all who attend. Everyone at the DugoutZone understands that having fun is the most important aspect of the hobby and that is why we think this shop is one of the best shops in the United States and one we had to tell every collector who visits CardShopFinder about.


The DugoutZone is a hot bed for collectors looking for Baltimore-area team cards and memorabilia. The shop specializes in Baltimore-area teams and has an incredible selection of cards from every local team. The display cases are loaded with high-end vintage and modern singles, and if the shop doesn't have it, they go out of their way to find it for your collection. Every wall is filled floor to ceiling with autographed memorabilia from the Ravens, Colts, Orioles, and Terrapins, as well as Hall of Famers and stars from all the major sports. The shop carries all of the latest releases from all of the major sports and participates in every manufacturer's special promotion and holiday giveaways. The DugoutZone also carries a full line of hobby supplies and publications, team merchandise, and just about anything else the sports card collector could ever want or need.


The DugoutZone is a great shop and a must-visit when in the Baltimore area. Rick, Dianne, Phil, and Patrick treat each collector like royalty and will make sure that every member of the family has a great experience every time they visit the shop. The collectors who visit the shop on a regular basis are incredibly friendly and treat everyone who stops by as one of the gang. Rick also is very active in giving back to the community. This holiday season The DugoutZone will be hosting their 6th annual Winter Coat drive at the shop. The Winter Coat drive is an amazing event and we at CardShopFinder encourage Baltimore-area residents to help if they can by donating lightly-worn winter jackets and winter wear to the shop. If you can't make it to the store, please feel to contact Rick and help out in anyway you can. For information on the specific dates and times for the Winter Coat drive and the store's other events, sign up for the shop's email newsletter at, 'like' their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @thedugoutzone. We can't say enough great things about the DugoutZone -- it is an amazing shop and one every collector should make a point to visit any time you're in the Baltimore area. Your collection will thank you...
