On today's show, I give my takes on some topics, news and products I've seen cross the wire recently. First I discuss the Upper Deck Basketball exclusive license with EuroLeague basketball. Next I discuss Collector Crate - which I declined a free box because I wanted to give you a non-biased opinion of the business model. I talk about the details of Panini Black Friday promotion. Finally we discuss the 14/15 Panini Prestige Basketball product being exclusive at Target and costing as much as $200!
On today's show I answer several questions that listeners have sent me over the last few weeks. I discuss the Leaf Cal Ripken Jr Ironman set. We discuss some collecting tips including bartering, how age/gender effect collectors and what are the best cards to collect if you are looking for a safe investment. According to Bloomberg - Topps has over $200m in debt with a large chunk due next year. I discuss if that's cause for alarm, or something Topps can manage. Lastly I discuss some tips on how to become a successful webmaster.
