We have a jammed packed edition of the sports card show podcast where we discuss multiple topics that have happened in the sports card hobby over the last few months. Blowout cards was hacked and their reaction was typical. Panini left patrons of the Industry Summit hanging with no black boxes. A 1/1 card was released that had Mitchell & Ness tags - which probably can't even be player worn, let alone game worn, as the card indicated. We discuss sending your cards into COMC. A breaker blatantly stole cards on camera. Our off topic/make america great again segments covers my best tax write-off this year + welcome to LA Lavar & Lonzo Ball!! 


We cover multiple topics in this 'comeback' edition of the Sports Card Show podcast. We discuss what areas of the baseball card market that are booming. Could that include 1990's 'junk wax' era cards as well? I give you an update on my $100 COMC account and what I did to generate $70+ in sales last month. I give 3 specific NFL 2 year players that I like - one I will be buying cards of soon. We briefly discuss the NFL combine. Finally we close out with some business idea around estate sales & garage sale finds. Lastly our Make America Great segment talks about how I'm willing to pay more for my fruit/veggies if it meant higher wages. 


An extended episode of the Sports Card Show Podcast, where we touch on 8 different topics. Included are discussions on the Panini Replay Prizm Mosaic replacement set/boxes that are being offered up by Panini as a "make good". Topps Trancendent baseball was one of the most expensive products of all time - does the hobby really need to go this route? Steve Grad (the Pawn Stars Autograph expert) has moved to Beckett. Has Steph Curry peaked? 2017 Topps is almost here, we discuss what that set means to the hobby. Topps website was hacked, and it was warned beforehand. I discuss my 2016 COMC results from my $100 account. Briefly touch on the LA Lakers - and more. 


On today's show we discuss a variety of topics from around the hobby. First I give you an update on my COMC $100 account Black Friday sales. Various topics about PSA/BGS grading cards is discussed - including price fixing for high-grade cards and a million dollar idea. I discuss some of the 2017 NFL draft prospects, including one running back in particular. Panini Replay was a flop and collectors are awaiting an announcement from Panini. That and more.


Miracles happen, weed is legal in California and Trump is president. PSA has been blazing hot fire for 6 years. COMC has Black Friday coming up. Chicago Cubs stars have been lighting up the Arizona Fall League for years. 


Today's show is a bonus episode hosted by Ryan. We go into the new $27,000 product Topps announced. Upper Deck ePack angering long time users. Beckett wrote a story about 50 Group Breakers to know in 2014, how many are still in business? Plus many more thoughts about the sports card world. 


On today's show we discuss a range of topics. We start with Topps' announcement of the Topps Crossover set. Now that Topps is out of the Football card game, what is Panini's flagship product? We discuss listing on COMC in Q4 to take advantage of the fee structure. I talk about web traffic vs conversions - something Mike Smeth public defenders must not know about yet. 


@SportsCardNews and Colin make a RARE back2back appearance on the Sports Card Show Podcast. You know something HUGE must have happened for us to interrupt our summer for more sports card talk.[caption id="attachment_6357" align="alignnone" width="300"]Mike Smeth Owner Of Mike Smeth Owner Of[/caption]This time it comes from website The owner/self proclaimed "CEO" of the website is Michael Smeth, aka Mike Smeth. Apparently for a few years he's been stalking victims online, including Panini's own Tracy Hackler!IMG_3193

On today's show we break down the collector demographic that made the trek all the way out to Atlantic City to attend the show. We talk about COMC's upcoming plans after Ryan spoke with Tim on the show floor. We discuss the Topps meeting held with collectors. Group breakers are discussed. High rolling in vegas and to Pearl Jam concerts. The owner of Cardboard Connection offered us gas money 2 years ago - now is too broke to attend the event. His booth sits empty while former employees work for competeting companies. Needless to say a full victory lap is in order when a clown like this GOES BROKE. LOL


Breaker Culture Website provides reviews & rankings of group breakers.

Upper Deck makes a bid on the NBA license. I discuss how the landscape could change with 2 licensees ... or possibly Upper Deck getting a small piece of an NBA license. gets daily hits on its website for people looking for 2016 Topps Football. Obviously the news that Panini has the exclusive NFL trading card license for the next (presumably) 10 years hasn't trickled down to all collectors yet. My guess is very few people who casually buy cards know about this yet.

Listener shows 1 day flip on COMC/ebay. Bought the card for $1 on COMC - then sold it later in the day on eBay (via COMC) for $8. And now has to do nothing else but figure out how to spend the money. Let other collectors complain/worry about COMC's customer service while you scoop the money bags that are laying on the ground.

Money Flowing to COMC from eBay sales will have a big impact on the hobby - as long as 20% cashout fee stays in place. In order to get top dollar in the future - you will need to sell into COMC's ecosystem.  Almost all eBay sales money flows into PayPal accounts - which can easily be transferred, spent & withdrawn to use for many other things than cards. COMC account balances are different because the money can only be spent on cards, blowout or cash with a 20% penalty. This will leave COMC sellers in a very lucrative position when all this eBay money (that used to go to PayPal) is now sitting in COMC accounts where the #1 cashout option is to buy more cards. Anyone not selling into this ecosystem won't get top dollar unless it's a premium/hot card - which are rare these days.
