My name is Anders Olson and I have owned the Rookie since October of 2005.     

I have been an avid baseball card collector since early childhood.  I am thrilled to turn my passion into my career.  It is with mixed emotions that I must admit I have a problem...I can't stop collecting!

If your kids don't like to go shopping with you, drop them off at The Rookie. They will be safe and we will treat them with the utmost courtesy and respect.

The Rookie has been a sports enthusiasts destination in Des Moines, Iowa area for many years.  The recipe for success has been primarily focused on customer satisfaction along with a clean, well organized store with a knowledgeable staff.  

We are proud to be able to deliver on our promise of competitive pricing and variety.  We proudly stock the latest products as well as items from years past. 

One of the biggest things that makes stands us out against our competition is the excitement and frenzy of the original Bid Board.  Come join the fun!
