About Us



Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about me, the owner of The Rookie.  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!

The Rookie is located at 9992 Swanson Blvd in Clive, Iowa.  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.

Our phone number is 515-255-4675 or you may reach us by email at:

One of the biggest things that stands us out against our competition is the excitement and frenzy of the original Bid Board.  For years, The Rookie has been the hot spot to allow collectors to bid on some of the hottest merchandise in the hobby.  Each week the Bid Board is new, freshly stocked and ready for your bids.  The Bid Board closes each week on Saturdays at 2:30 pm.  This is always a highlight for customers as it is a planned weekly event for our customers.  Come join the fun!  Other activities include our new Birthday Party celebrations and Mystery Boxes.
