What do case breakers do when they want more product from the card companies but can’t get it? They open up a physical shop.
The duo behind Live Case Break recently did just that in Canton, New York.
The shop is separated into two areas; one in the back with three computers and multiple cameras for their online breaks and the other offering customers the chance to buy cards and other memorabilia the traditional way.
The local newspaper wrote about the venture.
A University of Georgia student has been charged in connection with the theft of Bears’ rookie Roquan Smith’s game-worn jerseys and helmets. Landyn Shane Durham, 20, posted $22,000 bond after being charged with two felony counts.
He was released on Friday, according to this story in the Chicago Tribune.
No court date has been set yet.
