About Music City Toys & Collectibles

2002

The Beginning

Music City Toys opened for business Easter weekend of 2002 inside the Hwy 111 Mini Mall just north of Cookeville, TN. Then known as Heroes & Legends, the focus was entirely on sports cards and sports memorabilia.  We had a 10’ x 10’ space filled with 100,000+ baseball, football and basketball cards and collectibles.

Expanding

Over the years, our inventory began to expand to encompass a wide variety of collecting genres including vintage and modern toys, comic books and pro wrestling memorabilia. Eventually a move was made to a larger space inside the Cookeville Mall in March 2012. There we continued to grow occupying a 600 square foot space and focusing more and more on the world of toys and pro wrestling.

On the Road and Online

In October 2013, we closed that location and began selling online and at various conventions and fanfests throughout the country. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone. The Covid-19 pandemic cancelled most all events and conventions and forced businesses to reinvent themselves. We spent the year re-focusing on utilizing our social media platforms to grow sales online and had a record year!

Our New Location

In 2021, the time was right to re-open a retail location. We hope you will visit our storefront located 40 miles east of Nashville in the quaint community of Watertown. In addition to our unique selection of collectibles and memorabilia, we will host in store autograph signings with special guests from the worlds of pro wrestling, MMA, movies, TV and sports. We look forward to meeting collectors from all over the world at our new retail home!
