Who was

Wayne Alan

Wayne Alan was a decorated war hero turned fervent trading card store owner. He approached his passion with the same valor he demonstrated during his service, curating his collection with a keen eye for detail and unyielding work ethic. Every card told a story, and each of his pristine collections was a testament to his commitment, diligence, and meticulous nature.

As a father, Wayne's patience and wisdom guided his son through the world of trading cards, as well as life itself. Inspired by his character, he created Wayne Alan Grading to honor his father's legacy, and to uphold the standards he lived by. Each card we grade here at WAG embodies Wayne's meticulous eye and indomitable spirit, preserving the integrity of the card and the values of an exceptional man.
