Baseball card dealers are sprouting up at big league ballparks, where they’re finding a captive audience among the kids who had been drifting away from the hobby.
Can it be? A story about the new-found popularity of baseball cards?
As part of MLB’s new and exhaustive plan to reintroduce its fans to cards, the league helped create card kiosks at about a half-dozen ballparks, including Safeco Field in Seattle, where over 28,000 packs were reportedly sold in 2006.
Some stadiums are still card-free zones, but it’s a start. No price guides, no $500 boxes. Just packs and a lot of interested kids. What a concept. More–including audio– from Seattle Weekly.
