Sports Card Live #5 – @WildEagle Interview
Show Date: February 26, 2013
Dan is missing to start the show so Doug and Ryan ramble on about several different subjects. Ryan mentions a story about almost winning a Rickey Henderson game used jersey, even though he got outbid, he still got to meet Rickey that night. Doug pulls up a list from Bleacher Report with the Top 10 Most Unusual Game Used Items. They include Curt Schillings bloody sock and Ty Cobb’s teeth.
Topps shut down it’s customer service Twitter Account @Topps_Support. What does this mean for the company which is already struggling with it’s customer service? For some people, this was one of the only ways to get a hold of Topps, as they have notorious wait times if you try to reach them by phone or email.
Hockey expert Wild Eagle comes on to discuss some of the latest NHL products to hit the market. An interesting thing of note is that ITG decided to not persue a NHL license this season in part due to the lockout.
Doug (correctly) picks that 2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball will be a hit with collectors.
