Collecting Cardboard: JWW Sports Cards & Gaming – Fargo Monthly Magazine
Josh Wolters – Owner
Fargo is lucky to have two fantastic options for sports card enthusiasts in the area, each filling slightly different niches.
In 2020, the long-beloved Big Nick’s Sports Cards changed hands to Josh Wolters. He rebranded the storefront that sits in the basement of West Acres to JWW Sports Cards & Gaming, completing a transition period of about five years and a lifelong dream of Wolters.
“I worked for the previous owner, Galen Heinle, while I was in college,” Wolters said. “He came to my wedding and in my thank you card to him, I left a little note telling him that he should give me a call whenever he’s looking to sell. I was managing a Firestone in Minneapolis at the time and wasn’t the happiest I could be. He never called, but I did. I called one day and asked him if he was ready and he said yes. So, I moved back to town and we started what was supposed to be a one-year transition but ended up being five years.”
Like most people in the hobby, cards have been a part of Wolters’ life for a very long time. He started collecting sports cards when he was five years old and also had a big-time interest in playing Magic The Gathering.
That passion for multiple hobbies has led Wolters to create a store with a little something for everyone.
