Sports trading cards have skyrocketed in value over the past year or so, creating a newfound interest in the classic cards among sports fans across the country.
Yet after that apparently led to a violent altercation in a Target parking lot last week, the retailer has decided to get out of the game — at least, temporarily.
Target confirmed Wednesday that starting on Friday, all MLB, NFL, NBA and Pokémon trading cards will not be sold in stores “out of an abundance of caution.” The decision comes days after a fight over trading cards broke out in a Wisconsin Target parking lot.
The cards will still be available for purchase online.
The victim, per the report, has a concealed carry weapons license. No shots were fired. Four men were later arrested and taken into custody on battery, strangulation and disorderly conduct charges.
It’s unclear what cards specifically they were fighting over.
