Hi guys,

I've been searching for the Ross Bertram books that have been out of print for a long time.

This website is listing both of them : https://www.boardwalkmagic.com/

Are you familiar with this site? Does it look legit to you?

Thanks for your help,

L.

I haven't ordered from Boardwalk Magic, but it is a "real" shop with an actual location (tiny, inside an arcade) that I've passed by. They were closed at the time, otherwise I would have stopped in. I've met the owner and have friends who know him much better than I do, and I've never heard anything bad about him or his way of doing business.

Based on everything I know, I wouldn't hesitate to trust him or the shop.

Not sure I follow, Tom.

If anyone has more direct experience with the shop, of course, I hope they'll share it.

Edit to add:
Lucas, I did find a couple of concerning reviews about online orders through them, including this one which seems to indicate unavailable stuff showing as available or some kind of bug in their backordering system as of a year ago. It might be worth reaching out to them via their contact form to make sure they actually have the Bertram books before sending any money along.

I just meant that you are familiar with it so it should be good.  Not a fake shop.   You're right in your second post, although I don't order much anymore, I'll always ask if it's available for immediate shipment.

Thanks to both of you for your answers.

I've sent an email to see if they are answering about the availability of the books.

I'll let you know.

The books to be legitimate must be hardcovers.

As a matter of fact I don't.

I guess I'll wait to find the Bertram's books later.

I thank you for your help on this topic, I'll keep everyone posted if I ever get an answer from them. They might be busy.
