The Mistake By The Lake hosts this years 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention. There’s a line out the door, VIP tickets are sold out – but dealers, employees and those working the show are hot under the collar. Ryan describes some heated moments at the Topps Booth – and the Blowout Sports Cards booth. Problem for them, there’s a long list of hobby “insiders” who have fallen on hard times directing heat at Sports Card Radio. We discuss trashing on Mike Smeth from Cardboardconnection, Mark Sapir at Topps, Josh Cade (Uber Driver), Breakers, and more.
