Winters can be frightful in Minot, North Dakota but one local collector will have some warm memories of great pack pulls to get him through it.
It doesn’t matter if you live in south Texas or the far northern reaches of the Upper Midwest. Lucky packs can be found anywhere.
With the nearest pro teams several hours away, Ross Rodriguez has to be content watching most of his pro sports on TV and connecting with the players through his hobby. The Minot, North Dakota resident patronizes a local card shop operated by a friend as he tries to build a collection he says will someday wind up with his children.
Rodriguez plunks down some of his extra cash at the shop whenever he can, and lately it’s proven to be money well spent. At least the local newspaper was impressed enough to offer up this feature story on his run of success.
