Sam had decided to move on from the comics store and so put it up for sale. Sam intended to use the proceeds to open a video store. He was too trusting of the man that bought it. He told me the guy was a close family friend, who hung around his house a lot. Once in possession of Iron Horse, the man immediately moved every bit of stock to a warehouse and closed the store. He kept all those books, cards and such, and never payed another dime to Sam. Sam tried to get it all back, but the legal paperwork was lacking and nothing could be done. Broke, Sam moved back to Texas and set about rebuilding his life.
