“Baseball cards are cool again,” proclaims a customer visiting a new trading card shop in North Kentucky. But if you ask collector Gianmarco Castronovo, baseball cards have always been cool!

This past Saturday, Hit Seekers Sports Cards made their debut in the Fort Mitchell area of North Kentucky.  But the card collecting game is nothing new for the owners, Greg and Jake Rouse, a father and son duo.  The pair have been streaming their pulls online for well over two years now.  Opening a brick and mortar store is just the next step in their adventure of card collecting and selling.  The grand opening was a smashing success, with tons of fans pouring in to check out the new shop.  Locals are excited to have a trading card shop in their area that offers everything from baseball cards to TCG series like Pokemon and Star Wars.
