I have such mixed feelings about Time travelers in Berkley. This store does have an amazing amount of inventory, and in my several years of varous collecting, i have never not found what i was looking for in this establishment, there is so much, that you might indeed get overwhelmed. So that is the good news..now the bad, The store is run by the nastiest man in the buiness. I think they based comic book guy in the simpsons after Mike the owner of Time travelers. He is a rude, nasty, cold, and ( did i mention rude). Ive seen Mike belittle young kids that were trying to get a fair price on games they were trying to sell to him, and more then once when i was only looking to spend a few dollars in his store, i was basically dismissed, and ignored. Most of his long time staff members are also as nasty as mike is, but if your owner is that rude to people, then who is telling his staff to act any differently.
Its really to bad that Time travelers is the only game in town anymore with that much inventory, because i hate giving my money to mike and his band of slacked jawed staff members, as i said at the start, very mixed feelings about This store and staff, Its like sleeping with an ugly woman...it feels good when your there, but youll hate yourself in the morning.

you remember when you were a kid and walked into toys-r-us for the first time..? well thats what it feels like walking into time travelers.

I have been coming here for years (mainly for magic cards and tournaments) and it is one of the best collectibles/comics/card game stores around. i have a feeling all of these people bad mouthing time travelers are competing businesses because i have never experienced bad customer service nor seen someone else being treated poorly by the owner or staff while i was present. they are knowledgeable on the products they are selling, have some of the best magic prices around (example, for magic card packs they sell 7 packs of whatever is the newest expansion for 20 bucks... try and find somewhere else that does that) and offer fair prices on things when youre trying to sell to them. the only "negative" thing i can agree with is that they do have lots of stuff thats not organized but thats not a big deal. most of what people would be looking for is going to be clearly displayed and if its not then roll up your sleeves, dig through a few boxes and stop whining. i dont even know if i could call that a negative, i think of it as they have so much stuff they cant even display it all.

anyways, all in all its a great store and I would suggest anyone in the neighborhood stop by and check it out atleast once.

Nice little place, good selection of comics and toys. They only really stay current on comics, I went looking for D&D 4E books and the closest they got was AD&D. If your looking for older collectibles or any comics, stop here. Good selection of rarer comics too. I don't know a thing about cards but they had a lot of Magic under glass and 2 games were going on at tables set up. The owner was never rude to me, a little gruff, but always helped or got someone else to help pretty quickly.

PROS: huge collection of comics, lots of toys both for collecting and playing, amazing setting for CCG (ex. Magic the Gathering).

CONS: dusty, disorganized, high prices, next to nothing buying price offers. the owner is just plain rude and obnoxious.

Time Traveler's does have a great selection of comics and toys, both new and used.

However that does not compensate for the owner, who is one of the most rude, hateful individuals I've ever come across in retail. He has absolutely no manners or respect for his customers.

I shop there sometimes but only as a last resort when I can't find what I want somewhere else.

Pro - Huge Selection of comics
Con - Most poorly organized "Huge Selection" of comics that no one wants in the area.

I dont know what the other reviewers were talking about, but the staff was anything but friendly.

Time Travelers comic book shop has been around for years. I first visited it 17 years ago when I lived in Royal Oak, and it is still going strong, which not many comic book places have lasted this long.

They have an enormous comic book selection, both used and new. I sold them comic books many years ago, but have only been in there buying in recent years.

The staff is very helpful in looking for what you want, which is good with the volume they have. They carry some of the more avant garde comics as well as classic Marvel and DC.

You can also buy trading cards, beanie babies and miscellaneous comic related items.

PROS: Huge selection, great staff
CONS: Hard to look through all the stuff they have

This is a really cool and HUGE comic store with lots of books, magazines, collectibles, and rarities. I love browsing through the japanese comics and seeing the sheer amount they have! I always find something I'm dying to buy and even new things I didn't know existed yet! Definitely a great place to buy amazing rare items and comics.

Time Travelers has an incredible amount of comic books, memorabilia, sports cards, and other miscellaneous items. They offer both used, collectible, and new items in a large store format. The drawback is that it is not entirely user-friendly. It's sort of intimidating for the casual shopper, just due to the sheer volume of items.

We love this place. My fave dish is the "Mexican Flag" which is oh-so tasty. Not authentic Mexican, no, but who cares? It's in a great location, we hardly ever have to wait, and it's good.\r

The salsa- you'll either love it or hate it.

I moved to Michigan about three months ago, and wasn't familiar with the area at all. I had left all my friends, family, and more importantly, my Magic The Gathering hang-out store back in Austin. So when I first got to Michigan, my first order of business was to find a new Cards/comic shop where I could just go and play Magic, and buy the most recent cards. I called around, and discovered that this was the largest store. So I called, and the service was great over the phone, answering all my questions. When I got there, however, I was flashed awkward and almost dirty looks buy the customers AND workers. I looked around the store, and wasn't too impressed by the lack of cleanliness in the store. There were piles of junk (aka collectibles) piled literally all the way to the ceiling. However, I wasn't there for the collectibles or comics. I was there to play/purchase MTG cards. In this aspect, the store was THE best store! Even better than back home in Austin! There were plenty of tables to play on as well as PLENTY of cards to purchase. I also discovered that they offer fair prices to purchase cards. The only problem that remained was the dirty awkward looks. After revisiting the store about five times, the looks fizzled away. Turns out, only a regular crowd goes there to play MTG, so an unfamiliar face was something nobody was expecting. Now, I'll swing by Time Traveler's one or two times a week, and although I may not be the most popular ""regular"" there, I still feel welcomed. The service is top notch. I DEFINITELY recommend this store to ALL Magic players! Five>***** 5

I can see why there are mixed reviews on here. Let me try to clear things up so people can make up their minds.\n\nParking- It was common sense to me that there was parking in the back. Parking is easily marked and close to the back door which is clearly labelled.\n\nCleanliness- It is an absolute pigsty. Packed to the ceiling with random crap that I am sure is overpriced. Really disappointing to see some of the stuff they have butchered up the way it is.\n\nInventory- They do have an impressive collection of crap. Can't deny that. If you are looking for something inparticular, I am sure it's there. You just might need to repair or sterilize it first.\n\nService - The younger of the male employees is quite helpful. Greeted me nicely and answered all my stupid questions without making me feel they were stupid (hey if I knew the answers, I wouldn't be there right?). \n\nThe other, older male employee is not really the type of person that should be in the service business. He clearly hates talking to people and may be a little bitter about how his younger days went. I tried to be nice and evoke some type of response, but I got an assembly line of one-word answers and a complete, overwhelming slap in the face of disinterest.\n\nOverall- I kind of expect uncleanliness and anti-social employees in a comic shop so my expectations were low going in. The one employee is very nice and takes my focus off the rest of the store. The other employee makes the piles of junk swell. But, they probably have what you need and it's in a good location where parking is NOT an issue.\n\nI would definitely recommend it, but please, just remember... you are entering a comic store, not an Abercrombie & Fitch. Expect to be welcomed by bummers.

I have been calling game stores in the area to find a box of M12 cards, and most of the places that I had contacted wanted 100USD or more, excluding tax. When I called Time Traveler's, I didn't even ask directions, I was provided with a simple, accurate location of the store. When I visited Time Traveler's, they wanted 95USD plus tax, which is five dollars more than the internet price. So instead of having to pay shipping and tax, I essentially paid what I would have paid over the internet and was able to take delivery the same day. \n\nWhen I walked into the store, a heavy set man greeted me,""Hey how are you, I'll be with you in just a minute."" while he was busy with a customer. I was in and out of the shop in about five minutes, so I really didn't get a good look at the rest of the store but, I can tell it is expansive, one of the larger game stores that i have ever seen. \n\nIf you are looking for a fair price and quick service for your collectible wants, Time Traveler's is the place to be.\n\nPros: Massive selection, fast service, good prices.\nCons: Very dimly lit. Although it adds to the ambiance of the store, I guess.\n\nAlso, parking is located behind the store.

Horrible shop, with loads of dusty crap that they sell back for high prices. For collectors: cards, toys, collectables - you can find anything they have and more at a much better price, any day, any time via online searches. Save your money and don't support these slime balls, as it only contributes to them taking advantage of more unsuspecting young kids and adults.

The parking is perfect and convenient behind the store. Some might be too feeble brained to find it. The parking in rear signs obscure the view of the back lot. They are not false people. If they do not know you they dont pretend they do. They answer direct questions directly. And they got stuff. My son loves the joint.

I do not know where to start - I was greeted as I walked in the most amazing store ever. It was a combinations of old and new - a collectors delight. I asked alot of questions and the staff, when not busy, took alot of time answering for me. The prices seemed kind of high on the older stuff but when I did my research I found that they were actually reasonable - I think I thought it was high because of lack of knowledge or actually being cost consious. This place had so much in it that it took me awhile to see everything that they had. I really imagined buying holiday gifts for the future as I shopped.They had alot more then any other store in Michigan. I noticed they were buying alot of items and the salesman told me thats how they get the nice selection and good prices buy buying from the public instead of mostly from the original company - makes sense to me. I found everything was organized nicely and the selection was spectacular - 4000 amazing square feet of merchandise.\r\n \r\n I noticed the person before me said \r\n\r\n THE WORST ""STORE"" EVER!!!\r\n\r\n I thought to myself - this person cound not have been in Time Travelers to have said that ??\r\n\r\n best, Jerry Karr

I actually travel the country visiting comic and game shops as part of my job. It's a great way to earn a living and it makes me very happy... usually. In my 20 years of experience as a comic book collector, I never dreamed a store as unprofessional as this ever existed.\n\nFirst, calling this place a ""store"" is generous because it implies that it a legitimate business, owned and operated by educated individuals, when in fact, nothing could be farther from the truth.\n\nSecond, it implies that the location is even shop able. The product is not at all easily accessible in neat organized displays, but rather lost in dusty heaps of damaged product. I have been to garage sales that are better merchandised and frankly, as a collector, the mangled products are disgusting. It broke my heart to open boxes only to find bent cards, broken toys, and comics that were neither bagged nor boarded.\n\nThird the prices are OUTRAGEOUS!!! The collectibles market is like the stock market, it fluctuates over time. Any single product's value rises or falls based off the principles of supply and demand. As demand goes down so do the prices, except at Time Traveler's, where prices remain at each products all time high no matter how out dated or obsolete. They even charge above suggested retail prices on current regular retail products. I pity the poor fool who pays their ridiculously overinflated prices.\n\nParking is horrible. You are better off finding some place down the street to walk from your vehicle (and shop).\n\nLastly, I have NEVER, EVER, witnessed such HORRENDOUS customer service in any business any where! The staff is overtly hostile to customers and they are not joking with a smile on their face either, they flat out scream and yell at anyone who dares interrupt their surfing the internet, hanging out with friends, or ask a question about the rows and rows of product that is hidden away behind the counter. They do not hesitate to make it clear that they neither need nor want your business over the merest perceived slight and frankly they don't deserve it.\n\nIn summary, I could not possibly give this business a positive review in any category. They are ignorant, rude, and overcharging their customers for inferior product. You the reader would be best served taking you money somewhere, ANYWHERE else.

Ok for everyone who hasn't been to this shop, they have the following:\n\n-Collectibles (New and Used) of any kind\n-HUGE collection of MAGIC The Gathering cards\n-ANY old trading card (YuGiOH, Pokemon, World/Warcraft)\n-thousands of Comics, prolly every comic ever made\n-Movies/DVDs of variety\nPlay tables on Friday nights for Magic tournments/casual playing/hangout\n\nThey Buy Magic Cards too. Take in your cards, they look through them, and give fair prices, however, they only buy Rares and Mythic Rares for good prices. Bulk/uncommon/commons...good luck. They stock alot of modern Magic cards. They do NOT match buylists from websites (e.g. MTGfanatic, TrollandToad etc...) uhm as far as the prices, they only go by the employees knowledge, they search some values on the computer (sometimes). I sold a 'Wrath of God -Portal' for $11. so yeah they only look for rare cards.\n\nAlot of reviews on this page are negative, prolly because they got ripped off because they weren't knowledgeable. As a first time visitor, I was very pleased. It is a very cool store. The parking is behind the store (but they have a back door entrance, so I don't know why people complain)

Pros: Greastest selection of all Magic Cards/Comics

Cons: Hard to find items due to huge selection

Okay, so there aren't 50 employees, waiting to serve your every need. He's just a SMALL business owner - NOT Wal-Mart. I think the owner does a VERY GOOD job - given the CRAPPY economy that we've had in Michigan, for years. He makes MOST of the new product available every week. If you want to ensure you get something, he takes advance orders. If you were under his amount of CONSTANT stress, you'd get grumpy, sometimes, too - and, if you come in with an attitude, you're likely to get it thrown back at you (like, I suspect, a couple of people who've commented here did). You Reap what you Sow!\n\n\nRunning ANY small business is TOUGH, nowadays. And, from *my* experience, collectors are about the most difficult to work with. He DOES buy collectibles. However, he's NOT gonna pay you anywhere near what he hopes to get for it (it's a BUSINESS, after all). The Collectibles Market is worse than the Stock Market, lately, with it's Downs, Ups, and even more Downs.\n\n\nFor over 30 years, I've known Mike, the owner; and, yes, like most people, he has his bad times. But don't let the fact that he has flaws (like MOST humans), stop you from visiting his well-stocked store. If you can't make it to his store, check out his web site or the eBay listings.\n\n\nHave FUN!!!\n\n

Pros: Good Selection & Prices

Cons: Not a Library

Although upon entering Time Travelers you may find quite a wide selection of comics, trading cards, and other interesting items, be ready to have quite a struggle with the staff.\r\n\r\n The staff are terrible at helping the customer. Once while browsing the store, I witnessed a staff member being very rude to two little kids, who were simply asking him to grab a box of pokemon cards from behind the counter. Secondly, the owner is possibly the grumpiest person I have ever encountered in ANY comic/trading card store. The man carries a wire thin threshold of anger that can snap on the customer at any moment. I personally have experienced this myself, after asking a simple question I was brushed off with an, ""I have better things to do"" attitude. Third, don't ever expect to get any information over the telephone. Numerous times I have called in advance to see if they had certain items in stock. 9 times out of 10 I would get the generic response, ""You'll have to come down here and see what we've got"". Talk about useless, they might as well not even pick up the phone.\r\n\r\n The worst part about it is that once you get down there good luck finding what you are looking for. The store is just piles and piles of comics, cards and other trinkets. Once again, think twice about asking someone for help.\r\n\r\n In my opinion, it is highly advised you check out some other stores such as Warp 9, or Collectible Investments if interested in recieving a shred of customer service.

Pros: Large Selection of Comics

Cons: Unbelievably Rude Staff, High Prices, Disorganized

Time Tracerlers is a great place to go to find all sorts of old trinkets. The owner is a little sour but thats only until you get to know him, which then he becomes a pretty cool guy with lots of knowledge about everything. The card shop guy's are very smart about what they do. Magicwise they have very reasonable prices for single cards and have a large knowledge about decklists, single cards, new sets, and prices. They also have many other cards and are knowledgeable to in-depth rules of most games.

I was referred to Time Travelers by a friend who started me playing Magic: The Gathering, because it was the closest card shop to me, and the next nearest one was out in Livonia.\r\n\r\nThey have a very good selection of Magic cards, along with a selection of other types of card games, as well (such as Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Naruto, etc.). They employees also play some of the card games they sell for, and will order the cards for you at the prices they sell them for (which are quite reasonable for Magic, I'm not sure about the others) if they do not have the cards in stock (which isn't that common, but is useful if you're making a competitive deck).\r\n\r\nI honestly like that the employees are brutally honest. They give advice on how to play that I think is quite useful. The employees actually like to joke around with the customers (mainly the younger ones, such as the ones that show up to play Magic on Fridays/Saturdays).\r\n\r\nI can't find anything I really dislike about Time Travelers. The atmosphere in the store is a little bit darker, but that's part of the feel of many card shops. I would recommend this shop to anyone with a sense of humor that is fueled by sarcasm.

Pros: Staff that makes you laugh, good variety, good quality items

Cons: Parking is BEHIND the store

If you are a large, homely man with a sour attitude and a surly demeanor, why not open a comic book shop? That's certainly what the owner of Time Traveler's did! His store is nothing special. While it is stuffed with tons of different toys, comics, and collectibles that would make comic enthusiasts and kids alike drool, it is also stuffy, dirty, and a lot of the stuff in the store is just junk. He will offer his brutally honest opinion about the comics you are interested in and if you try to sell him stuff, he will rip your stuff apart before offering an insultingly low price for it. Although I'm sure you could find some interesting things in there, I'd be happy never to see the owners ugly, unfriendly mug ever again. Go to Warp 9 in Clawson instead. It's smaller, but much more shopper-friendly. After all, isn't that what a store is supposed to be?\r\n\r\n

Cons: The owner, the prices, the customer service, all laughable

I went there to pick up two books, I skimmed through each and the attendent basically told me to read them at home. He gave some lame excuse saying someone came in and read 6 books and didn't buy. I don't think a customer should be pressured to buy and go home. It's bad business. I wouldn't recommend going here. They need to understand customer service and realize that the more people are given the chance to read the books chances are they will buy the ones they plan to buy and maybe pick up a few more they never read or new existed. I'm not shopping there anymore.

My best friend worked there for over 12 years. They have everything you need if you're a comic fan. Plus they have tons and tons of collectibles, probably the biggest this side of the country.
