All the major card makers have some sort of “Guarantee” on the back of autograph & memorabilia trading cards. For example on the back of one Tyler Eifert autograph/jersey card I have it states: “The enclosed event-worn material and autograph are guaranteed by Panini America Inc” However, upon searching the internet for this guarantee, I could only find reference to Panini Authentic items (which are typically memorabilia like basketball, shoes, etc - not trading cards). Don’t most companies put their “guarantees” in writing? Just search the internet for companies you know that guarantee something - and you’ll find a place on the their website which describes the circumstances the guarantee applies to. If Panini puts the autograph sticker on upside-down - does the guarantee apply? If Dak Prescott (allegedly) has cards stolen from him that are then auto-penned and sold online - does the “guarantee” apply then? Is the guarantee for the authenticity of the autograph - or for the quality - or both? How am I supposed to know when Panini (and likely other companies) don't state this on a website? We discuss this topic and more.

The Mistake By The Lake hosts this years 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention. There's a line out the door, VIP tickets are sold out - but dealers, employees and those working the show are hot under the collar. Ryan describes some heated moments at the Topps Booth - and the Blowout Sports Cards booth. Problem for them, there's a long list of hobby "insiders" who have fallen on hard times directing heat at Sports Card Radio. We discuss trashing on Mike Smeth from Cardboardconnection, Mark Sapir at Topps, Josh Cade (Uber Driver), Breakers, and more.

The Sports Card Show is now in its 10th year recording podcasts! Thank you to everyone that has listened over the years. On today's show we discuss the Topps MLB Exclusive licence being renewed. We discuss in general the state of card quality when in comes to photographs. We talk about how Panini has added several exclusive licenses in here in the US - but sales at the company haven't gone up. We talk briefly about the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland - more on that event on the next show. Finally we discuss having balance in your collecting life - so you don't all-out quit and leave the hobby forever.

There are a few sports card podcasts that have either re-booted or just started. One is the Mojobreak podcast, the other is About The Cards. On today’s show we discuss what will happen to 2018 Topps Baseball products now that it appears Ohtani is likely out for the season. I play a clip from a previous show that predicted the future. Mike Trout is one of the best baseball players of all time - what will happen to his card values over time? Which cards will be the most collectible even after he plays? We then briefly discuss the NBA draft & offseason.

The Sports Card Show Podcast returns from a few months off, I explain what I’ve been up to. (8:30 Time Mark) The 1st round of the 2018 NFL Draft happened the night I recorded this podcast, so I talk about the 5 QB’s that were selected. (35:40 Time Mark) Angles’ Pitcher/Hitter Shohei Ohtani is playing like a mega-star and his baseball cards are on fire - with gasoline poured on top. I’ve seen MANY hot prospects in my days ranging from Will Clark, Ken Griffey Jr, Ichiro, Albert Pujols, Derek Jeter, Mike Trout …. ect - Ohtani’s cards are reaching levels we’ve never seen before. I talk about the people that could stand to make a lot of money this season in the baseball card market - and I don’t think it will be the people who are trying to pull his cards. (48:12 Time Mark) I talk about how I’m going to prospect some NBA cards over the summer since most people will be on Ohtani and other stuff. (57:57 Time Mark) I talk about Brian Gray (Leaf Trading Cards) un-blocking me on Twitter. Finally I talk about how I don’t invest 100% of my assets in the stock market recently and why.

A Bloomberg article indicates Topps might be changing owners soon. We break down the information with @SportsCardNews on a BREAKING NEWS podcast. Read the full show notes on Sports Card Radio.

On today's podcast we discuss the 3 sports card "manufacture" conferences that will be happening during the first two months of the year. Upper Deck, Topps and Beckett will be holding these conferences - which one should you go to if any? Topps recently released 2017 Topps Transcendent Baseball, a product with a $27,000 price tag. Given there are 87 boxes made - that means Topps is asking the card community to fork over $2.35M during a time when we are buying gifts for others (or yourself like me haha). I think a product like this can be a regular release, however Topps' timing could be improved. During our annual New Year's Resolutions segment, I hand out advice for Panini, Topps, and Upper Deck for 2018. Finally on our Make America Great Again segment, I discuss my process to finding good stocks, I give you some podcasts I listen to and we discuss how you can make the new tax bill work for you.
