This week Panini announced that they were going to invite select hobby stores to a "Prestigious Roundtable" to discuss things with a "Product Manager" .... Upper Deck issued some fun press releases this week so we discuss those as well.
Today we hold solutions sessions for Topps and Panini. Listen up fellas.
Might be a rough year for sellers this year ... when it comes to making a profit. Compared to the last few seasons, this years NFL and NBA rookie classes look weak.
There's 1 business in the Sports Card food chain that just takes money off the top without adding any real value. Those businesses should get squeezed out of this hobby. @SportsCardNews joins us again to recap the 2013 National.
Everything from cards to the card companies are for sale this week at the 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention, luckily for dealers there are tons of buyers lining up at the door each day to buy. For Topps, Upper Deck and Panini - the list of buyers (even who would buy the company for less than 1x earnings) is VERY small. Look for at least 1 of the 'big 3' manufactures to be BANKRUPT in 12 months - my money's on Upper Deck, but Topps & Panini aren't far behind.
Another 45min interview with my brother @SportsCardNews from the National.
Please don't listen to this podcast if you are sensitive to foul language - my Brother @SportsCardNews goes OFF during Day #1 at the National.
