Just a few days away from the NFL showdown that many believe could be a preview of Super Bowl LI this February in Houston, you’d imagine players on the Seattle Seahawks are busy watching countless hours of video in an attempt to try and figure out how Tom Brady does what he does, working out and just downright getting mentally prepared for what could end up being a really important game. 

And they probably are doing that, but one of the team’s linebackers, Cassius Marsh, has something weighing heavily on his mind that you’d have to hope he can put to the side before the Seahawks take the field in Foxborough this Sunday. 

His Magic: The Gathering card collection has been ripped off. 

According to Fox Sports, the collection was in one of the two backpacks sitting in Marsh’s car that thieves took off with after smashing the window. The 6-foot-4 linebacker who racked up his first career sack this year against the Miami Dolphins is basically lost without the them. 

Marsh has talked about how much he loves the role-playing game, telling the Seattle Times, “I’m a nerd, for sure,” and he says he’s been playing since he was 11. “How people like gaming, I like cards.”

Obviously having something you love taken from you is traumatic, and Marsh really does love his Magic cards, but there’s one more thing that we should mention, and that’s how the collection that was stolen is valued at about $20,000 to $25,000. While Marsh said he’d gladly hand over some tickets to the next home game and that he won’t press charges, it’s a pretty safe bet that whoever smashed his car window is checking eBay to see how they can unload those cards and turn a profit.
