Today on the program we are joined by www.cardshopfinder.com and we talk about the website and recently released Android Mobile Application. Be sure to check out the website or mobile app the next time you are searching for a card store in your area. I think this is perfect if you are traveling and want to know if there is a card store nearby.
Panini dropped the bomb on football collectors wallets the last few weeks with 2011 Playoff National Treasures Football and 2011 Panini Playbook Football coming out very close to each other. I think that Playbook might offer the better value for RC card collectors because you essentially have a 1:36 chance at getting a top name like Cam Newton, A.J. Green or Andy Dalton. National Treasures has more cards/content, but if you’re looking for rookies, Playbook might be the better choice.
Lastly, I was contacted by the folks at www.wax-eye.com about a new set of sticker cards they released called Cereal Killers. The set mimics popular cereal box themes with artist Joe Simko providing unique pieces of artwork you can stick anywhere. There are sketch cards inserted 1:2 boxes and other rare cards like magnets and foil cards. I think these kind of sets are cool because if you have someone you know that doesn’t like sports – they might get into card collecting with these types of products. Also, if you are looking to become a dealer or seller of cards – don’t overlook sets like this that can provide an extra source of income over selling only sports related items.
