The story also features photo's of the current location as well as great stories about such subjects as the naming of the store.
A lot of people ask me why I named the store Attack of the Baseball Cards, said Mandy. While spending an evening with friends, my task for everyone was to come up with a trade name that would start with an so I would be listed first in the phone book. We blew out names for almost an hour before getting tired and moving on to watch television. Well a PBS channel happened

                                               

                                           

to be on with the cult film Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Someone said that we should call the store Attack of the Baseball Cards where you can have giant baseball cards chasing people down the block. Everyone laughed except me and I took that idea to the bank. In fact my first ads showed me covered with baseball cards with only my face and hands sticking out. Needless to say, the name stuck and no one ever forgets it.


ATTACK'S WEEKLY BOX BREAKS ARE BIG HIT!!!
