Does Walgreens Sell Football Cards?

Walgreens has carried football cards previously, but at the moment doesn’t appear to have them in stock. Walgreens does make it easy to search individual stores, so customers should be able to see when cards are back in stock either by looking online or calling individual stores.

Somewhere buried in my crawl space are stacks of football cards from the 90s and early 00s. I don’t know if they’d be worth anything today (probably not) but I doubt that they’re in good enough condition to be valued for much more than a few dollars. But for those that remain passionate collectors either as a hobby or an investment, there are plenty of places to look for high-quality football cards.

In this article, we’ll try to determine when Walgreens may carry football cards again and how to go about learning when they’re in stock. I’ll also provide some alternative locations where cards are currently available both in-store and online depending on your preferred shopping strategy. 

Key Takeaways

  • Walgreens has carried football cards in the past but does not currently have any in stock as of March 2023.
  • Calling individual stores or searching online is the best way to learn when they’ll have football cards available again.
  • Plenty of other stores carry football cards including nationwide retailers like Walmart and Target as well as online at Amazon and eBay.

Searching Online

Walgreens has an intuitive and easy-to-use website that makes searching their inventory easy. Ensure your computer’s location services are on, and the Walgreens website will automatically search the nearest stores. You can also change what location you’re searching by typing in the name of a city, state, or zip code. [1]

Does Walgreens Currently Sell Football Cards?

As of March 2023, Walgreens was not carrying football cards in stores. I searched numerous stores across the United States and none appear to be carrying sports cards at the moment.

Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, and other trading card games are being carried right now, so perhaps sometime soon they’ll resume carrying sports trading cards too.

How to Know When Walgreen Will Have Football Cards in Stock

The easiest way is to call the store and ask if anyone knows when the next shipment will be coming in. The exact timing and day of the week will vary from store to store so don’t expect to get the same answer from different locations.

In general, most Walgreens receive freight late at night or early in the morning before the store is open. This gives employees the chance to restock the shelves and take inventory without also having to provide customer service.

Searching online is always an option, but you won’t get the same information as you would by calling the store or showing up in person.

Where Else to Get Football Cards

Walgreens has stocked football cards many times in the past and likely will again at some point in the future. [2]

Until then, there’s no need to stress, there are plenty of places where you can find football cards. [3, 4]

Many nationwide retail stores like Wal-Mart and Target carry a wide selection of football cards. If going to the store isn’t your preference, you can order cards from home too. carries a wide range of trading cards including the coveted Panini Brand. [5]

It may be more time-consuming, but eBay is another good option if you’re looking for bargains, cards that are no longer in print, or a specific player or year. [6]

You’ll have to be pretty specific with your keywords and always vet sellers before purchasing to make sure you’re not getting ripped off. But it can be a great way to find undervalued trading cards and every now and then you may find something severely underpriced.


There’s something addicting about ripping into a new pack of cards, not knowing who you might get. Could this finally be the pack when you pull that priceless rookie card or your favorite player?
