I make a case for the Anaheim National of 1991, the largest attendance and the first to really feature corporate promos. Rich, on the other hand, has a sentimental favorite. Finally, we both hope the next one is the greatest!
438 - Allure of Dollar Boxes, Part 1, with Rich Klein
Dr. James Beckett: Sports Card Insights
Rich and I discuss why we find it enjoyable to work our way through big boxes of random cards at a show knowing all are being offered at the same price - we find we are looking for different "bargains" mostly non-overlapping.
He's an encyclopedia of hobby knowledge but on his 2nd appearance on the show, we learn a little more about Rich Klein the person & how it all started. PSA is doubling its size & there's a new vintage price champion. We announce the $50 1 of 1 Card Shop Break Credit winner--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sportscardnation/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sportscardnation/support
I sit down with Rich Klein a hobby veteran of of over 40 years who worked at Beckett for 20 years, written blogs for GTS and Sports Collectors Daily, currently works at COMC and has been going to National since the 80's so he has seen it all. This will be an insightful discussion about the state of the hobby today and how its evolved over the decades, why everyone is so far behind in terms of grading and shipping and the difference between collectors then and now, working at Beckett, working at COMC, hosting card shows and then some. Viewer comments and questions will be in play so please join us. Wednesday August 26 @ 10:00pm ET, 7:00pm PT--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sportscardslive/support
