ChannelFireball started out as a sports card store, Superstars of Sports. The owner and his son (current President and CEO, Jon Saso) took a chance on a fledgling trading card game, an unheard of thing back then. It was 1994, the game was Magic the Gathering, and the set was Antiquities. Since then, ChannelFireball has grown to become one of the largest online retailers of Magic: the Gathering, a premiere event organizer, and a source of top tier content.
Here at the Game Center, we do our best to carry on the fun and excitement Jon and his friends found 23 years ago in a small card shop in Downtown San Jose. We host daily events (for Magic, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh!), buy and sell cards, and have plenty of table space for people to just come in and hang out.
All players are welcome, no matter their skill level, age, or experience.
If you love games, we’d love to see you here.
