So, what caused Target to suspend trading card sales? The restriction comes after a fight over trading cards for sale broke out at their Brookfield, Wisconsin store. Local police say the altercation ended after a man who had been attacked by four other individuals pulled out his gun. Out of an abundance of caution, Target made a decision at the corporate level to suspend all trading card sales. While this Wisconsin incident was the most severe fight Target experienced, the retailer has cited multiple fights over baseball cards for sale at locations around the country.
