Workers with a little extra cash are finding Cloud 9 Sports Cards and Memorabilia in Odessa, TX to be a good place to spend it.

Of course, it takes more than a few collectors from out of town to make a shop work. The current owners try to make sure they keep the customers happy, whether they’re buying a T206 star Hall of Famer or a 10-cent common.

The local paper was in to talk cards with the folks who make it go–and the loyal customers.
