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.

Show #227 Leaf Suing Sports Card Radio?? DA Scam? Listener Q’s + More

On today’s podcast, a company blow-hard threatens to sue Sports Card Radio AGAIN! Hint: He’s threatened to sue me before!

NFL Rookies blow ass … sort of. Lots of QB’s going down for the count Eli, Big Ben, Cam, Luck, Darnold, brees, Trubisky are all hurt or basically retired.

Did DA Card World scam me out of $600 of Topps Series 2 Jumbo Boxes??

I took a trip to Southern Hobby in Reno, I briefly tell you why I did so and how it was “cheaper” than having the items shipped.

I take a look at some top MLB players base Bowman Chrome rookie card prices. It’s going to give me a good idea what I can pay for up & coming players, and which one’s are already pricing in greatness.

Ronald Acuna $25
Pete Alonso $19 2006 BD
Judge $16 2013 BDPP
Carlos Correa 2013 $1
Mookie Betts  2014 $4
Juan Soto 2017 $5

Alex Bregman $6
