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. 

On today’s show we discuss the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and why he was so extraordinary. 

On today's show we discuss the changes we'll make to the show in 2020. You'll find more in-depth episodes at www.sportscardradio.com/premium Going forward, this podcast will be (mainly) shorter and less in-depth. Today I discuss Luka Doncic and Zion being hurt. A former NFL player being accused of card trimming. Brian Gray goes off again! And with 2019 in the books I hope it was your best year ever. In 2020 the goal is to MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT! Merry Christmas and Happy New year! See you again in 2020.

Sports Card Radio Premium returns this week to discuss the latest meltdown by Brian Gray of Leaf Trading Cards. He recently appeared on a low-rated & “3rd tier” hobby podcast and MELTED DOWN over comments made by Sports Card Radio. Gray even DM’d the Zillow value of our parents house, which was not only strange but further evidence he has become UNHINDGED! Later we discuss our year selling on COMC, Amazon & eBay - letting you know our sales totals and strategies for 2020. We answer listener questions about Amazon and making money on websites. 

Sports Card Radio Premium debuts! Joined today by @SportsCardNews

Today we discuss COMC's return policy. We LIGHT UP a few bloggers who chose to comment about a return policy that not only is good for buyers, but is in-line with COMC's competitors. We scratch our heads why they didn't post about the TRIMMING SCANDAL. We discuss some techniques we've used to sell over 100,000 cards on COMC, while being profitable. 

Finally we give updates on the Ripping Wax & Leaf Trading Card "Lawsuits". And there's a way to enter to win a 2019 Topps Archive Signature Retired Player box on the show. NO SCRUBS!

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
Cody Bellinger $7.50
Alex Bregman $6

Listener Q’s wrap up the final segment, but I go off topic quite a bit during the segment.

 

On today’s show we discuss some strategies I’ve used to sell on COMC and Amazon. Finally we conclude the show talking more about the card trimming and PSA’s latest conference call with investors.

Here are some topics I discuss about buying/selling on COMC.

  • Always make offers
  • Auto accept 20% off
  • Be the lowest price to sell fast
  • Port Sales
  • Buy in the offseason for baseball (Nov/Dec)
  • Sell heading into NBA season

Here are some things I discuss about selling on Amazon.

  • Just start selling
  • Don’t be scared of competition
  • Seasonal items
  • Sell in categories with low return rates
  • Sell items that are tough to find
  • Sell items that are replenish-able
  • Search for items out of stock
  • Expand to Canada
  • Apply for Seller Fulfilled Prime

Here is what we discuss about the Card Trimming 

  • Greed will keep cycle rolling
  • PSA basically points finger at PWCC
  • High end cards is a small market

Ryan returns for his annual appearance on the podcast, but this time he didn't go to The National. 

Today on the Sports Card Show Podcast, we discuss the latest in the card trimming scandal - including the Washington Post confirming the FBI is investigating. PWCC’s finally lawyered up and it’s gotten REAL quiet around the hobby. Brian Gray, Brent, even Gary Moser was talking - now it’s crickets. Finest, Pro Debut, S2, Stadium Club go live with a quickness. I’m interest in seeing if the prices hold over the NSCC or if discounting sends prices lower in the coming weeks. NBA Draft & Free Agents really shook up the NBA. I’m really excited about the NBA season, and I think it will be a fun season to follow NBA trading cards as well. I have a COMC wishlist! I go through about 5 things I hope the site adds soon. The NSCC is coming, and hopefully despite the FBI investigations, people on the show floor have a good time. Finally we discuss the 4th P in making 2019 your best year ever! You need a plan, process - and have patients. But what separates real winners from losers is PROGRESS. However progress can come in many forms - including failure, so embrace progress no matter what happens. 

Colin and Ryan update you on the biggest scandals currently in the hobby. Huge update to the Gary Moser and PWCC trimmed graded cards scam. Looks like the finger pointing has just begun. Joe Clemons and Leaf Trading Cards has some explaining to do after more revelations that a former BGS & current Leaf employee gets a shocking percentage of Black Label and Pristine cards.
