A new high-end card shop has opened in the shadows of the New England Patriots home stadium.

Along with the usual array of unopened products and graded cards for sale, CardVault features a massive walk-in steel vault to house some of the shop’s most expensive cards, a lounge area with plush seating, multiple HD TVs and a sound system for game playing or music from guest DJs who will appear on occasion.

The business is operated by Big Night, a Boston area company that is involved in a variety of entertainment projects including a case and box breaking business.

Located in the Patriot Place shopping center at Gillette Stadium, the 1,600-square-foot facility offers consulting services including rare card procurement, grading submission services, appraisals, collection audits and other options. They’re planning trade nights, pop-ups, athlete/celebrity signings and meet-and-greets.
