Show #234 Topps/Panini Shut It Down + StockX + MSFT or Fleer?

On another quarantined edition of The Sports Card Show Podcast we are joined again by Ryan @SportsCardNews. We discuss Topps & Panini delaying products because of the virus. What impact has it had on the Hobby? Is previously released wax selling better? Colin talks about a site he’s been selling Topps baseball boxes on. We each give brief Amazon updates, since it’s paying most of the bills at the moment. We discuss the 2020 and 2021 National Sports Collectors Convention. There was discussion about buying Microsoft shares or 1986/87 Fleer basketball boxes – and why collectors have the wrong idea about which is a better ‘investment’.

Show #232 @GaryVee Haters – Confronting Pack Searchers – Heritage/Optic + More

On today’s show we discuss some of the new sets that have gone live including 2020 Topps Heritage and Optic Basketball. If you feel these sets are overpriced or out of your budget, I give you some tips on how to acquire the cards. Sports Cards are RED HOT!! Like stocks, homes or anything for that matter – it’s probably a good idea to be a SELLER in that type of market. I’ve seen some recent social media postings where people are confronting PACK SEARCHERS at Target/Wal-Mart. I tell you why that’s a REALLY BAD IDEA. The NFL draft is coming – I give you my prediction on what type of class it might be. Finally our main topic is GaryVee promotes the hobby on a daily basis – and is often criticized for it. I run down collectors WHO WANT HIM STOPPED and tell you what I think. As always, today’s podcast is sponsored by NO ONE! Enjoy!

Show #231 Blowouts Blowup! + Topps Conference + Breakers Are SCRUBS!

On today’s show we discuss the 2020 Topps Industry Conference with Ryan @SportsCardNews who attended the even for the second year in a row. We discuss what types of things you could expect if you attend the show in the future, including giveaways, athlete appearances and takeaways you can learn. We discuss an altercation between Tom Fish, owner of Blowout Cards, and Ryan in the hallway. We discuss how group breakers are the “scrubs” in this industry – mainly because they care more about being liked than making money.

Show #230 Setting A Hobby Budget + More

On today’s show I talk about setting a hobby budget – mainly because I saw a tweet last week that really made it evident people aren’t doing this. Basically a guy said he could have bought a Jordan Auto and LeBron RC for how much he spent on breaks – instead he had base he didn’t even want. So I walk you through the 3 steps to make sure this doesn’t happen to you! Even if you’ve been collecting a long time, this episode is for you – but especially if you’ve just gotten back into the hobby or are starting for the 1st time. I then talk briefly about the Class Action Lawsuit against PSA/PWCC and more. Baseball season is coming soon. I give an update on my store and Amazon sales in 2020.
