One of the draws to my new job in Kansas was less travel. At the peak of my career from a travel perspective I was going 2-4 nights/week about 3 weeks per month. Since relocating here over the summer, I think I have only gone on 4 trips, less than 1/month. I have been trying to limit the trips as much as possible - for example I flew out to Los Angeles last week and left on a 6:40 AM flight on Monday and returned on a 6:25 PM flight on Tuesday. The quick turnaround didn't allow me to stop by my old LCS even through I drove right by the exit.
However, about 5 weeks ago I traveled to Sacramento for a couple meetings and made a week of it. I decided to stay a little longer so I could visit my mom and a couple of friends in the evenings. I also found time to look for any card shops. I believe there are a few in the area, I happened to track one down near the down town area. It had a couple good yelp reviews.
When I entered, it was dominated by non-sports stuff. Lots of comic books, Magic and Pokeman cards, etc. They did have a few packs of sports cards on the wall and a display case. The display case had some stacks of Giants, A's, 49ers and Raiders but was pretty disheveled and disorganized. Most of the Giants I could see were already part of my collection but I saw this guy peeking out:
