The headline for this article pretty much describes what I want to talk about perfectly: "My husband blew our son's savings on Pokemon cards."

Turning Your Pokemon Collection into a Nest Egg w/ David Persin (Part 2)

Today I had the honor and privilege to have on none other than David Persin onto the podcast! He was such a gem because of how extensive his knowledge is from collecting to actual investing so he has a very unique perspective to explore. We go after a lot of different things when it comes to Pokemon but I think his mindset demonstrates that regardless of how you collect, there are fundamental success principles that will help you along if you are trying to turn your collection into a nest egg.
