John Miller of Docking Bay 94 in Coconut, Florida reports that a local Walmart store is already selling the Magic: The Gathering--Battle of Zendikar release ahead of the official street date.

I had heard from my customers that the local Walmart's put the new Battle of Zendikar out for sale a few days ago.  Today I got a picture confirmation from one of my customers.  I know nothing will ever happen to the Walmarts and Targets that break street dates.  Why doesn't Wizard go after the third party distributors who order and stock card products at theses chains?????

How is it that my distributor can't even send it to me until one day before release, yet it's at Walmart 3-4 days before release?
