Sports Card Live #7 – All About Cards Interview
Show Date: March 12, 2013
Show #7 starts off with baseball in the air. Ryan is heading out to Spring Training to see the SF Giants in Scottsdale, AZ. Prices for Giants tickets were in the $60.00 each range, which is expensive for Spring Training standards. The World Baseball Classic is underway and the USA team is taking shape.
A bulk of the show is previewing the 2013 Las Vegas Industry Summit. The annual event held in Vegas gathers people trying to make some cash in the card game in a conference like setting. Held off strip at the Orleans, you have to pay $400 to get in and hang out with a bunch of dudes. There are many exclusive free items given away at the Summit which is a big draw for some attendees. Colin, host of the Sports Card Show, also comes on to give his thoughts on the Summit.
Ian from All About Cards comes on and talks about his experience at the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore. He says that any collector serious about the hobby should attend at some point in their lifetime.
