5/17 Knutsen's Northwest Sports Cards

Okay, I've walked past this place millions of times. 
It's in the same shopping complex as Trader Joe's, Starbucks, Big Lots and The Freeze.
- like I said, I've walked by it a million times -

Coins, baseball, hockey, basketball, football, and pokeman cards and parnephalia run from $9.99 to hundreds of dollars.
Wow, people pay good money for this stuff.

My son was most excited about the Seattle Sounders card of good ol' hometown hero Kasey Keller. His card is going for as high as $300!
The entire back section of the store is full of Magic:The Gathering cards.

We got to hold another "powerful" card worth $695.00 - if only I could remember what it was for.

Fascinating.
What's your favorite card game?
