Show #203 Auto-Panini Dak Prescott Scandal + Amazon FBA Updates

This week we discuss the Dak Prescott “Auto Pen” scandal involving Panini America. We discuss the language in contracts signed by other Panini signers – and why it places all responsiblity on Panini. We discuss why Dak Prescott might have done this, and why it might not make sense to have used an auto-pen. Beckett Grading certainly comes out smelling like roses, as they essentially turned away business for the sake of authenticating.

Later on in the show I give you an Amazon FBA update – including the first few hours of Amazon Prime Day. If this is any preview of how the holidays will go, it’s going to be an explosive Christmas season for me selling on Amazon. I discuss my trip to Las Vegas, blocking Panini butt kissers on Twitter, and more.

Show #202 Time To Move Back Home With Mom – COMC Raised Fees

Today’s show highlights COMC’s recent fee changes. Some fees went up, some actually went down. It demonstraits a shift in the market COMC is trying to go after.

The company has a massive moat around their ‘low-end’ card business – it’s unlikely any challenger will emerge to take that business away from them. So in order to capture the market COMC has less of (higher-end cards) the company has adjusted fees to encourage/discourage certain cards from being sent in.

We discuss if the alternatives are better, or if paying the extra 20% to list a card is worth it.

We discuss why liberal politicians in Washington state might be to blame.

I discuss why anyone with any investment savvy would salivate over COMC’s business model – but scoff at UD/Topps/Panini/Leaf’s business.

I give an Amazon FBA update.

I update my $100 COMC card sales.

I try to encourage all these guys living at home with mom to get some new skills and earn more money.

I’m doubtful many are capable of pulling that off – but I tried.

Released May 18, 2017

We have a jammed packed edition of the sports card show podcast where we discuss multiple topics that have happened in the sports card hobby over the last few months.

Blowout cards was hacked and their reaction was typical.

Panini left patrons of the Industry Summit hanging with no black boxes. A 1/1 card was released that had Mitchell & Ness tags – which probably can’t even be player worn, let alone game worn, as the card indicated.

We discuss sending your cards into COMC.

A breaker blatantly stole cards on camera.

Our off topic/make america great again segments covers my best tax write-off.
