Jerry's Rookie Shop having a "summer blast party" Saturday

Jerry's Rookie shop — a sports card and memorabilia shop at 3021 W. State St. in Boise — is having a special event Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Here's the scoop:

  • Special prices
  • Special raffle tickets for each purchase
  • Everyone gets a raffle ticket for showing up
  • They're selling 40 boxes of Finest Football cards for $150 apiece

Jerry's is asking people to pay cash if possible, and with debit card as a backup option. They'll take credit cards if they have to, but no checks.

Check out their Facebook page for more info.

This is a really good use of this blog in lieu of a full ad.

The purpose of the blog

You've left a couple similar comments on this blog before. So, I would like to address your concerns:

The purpose of this blog is to inform readers about retail businesses opening or closing, special events, sales, trends, tidbits of info and anything else that folks might want to know about.

It is not an advertising platform, and I determine as a reporter what fits in the blog and what doesn't. The basic criteria are, "Would I want to read this?" and "Will our readers find this useful?" I also try to keep the content as varied as possible so there's something for everyone.

You are absolutely welcome and encouraged to tell me about anything you'd like to see in the blog.

Something closer to Payette.
