(Part 2) Collecting Pokemon (and drinking) like a Lawyer w/ @pokegalofficial

For this episode I brought on Anna from @pokegalofficial and let me tell you, she is a gem. She's a long time (20+ years) collector with a BEAST collection. I'm talking vintage booster boxes, modern booster boxes and dozens of full binders. She's been doing this for a while and she knows her shit ;) This episode was really fun because we of course talk about Pokemon, but we also get sidetracked and somehow ended up also discussing our own personal ghost stories. Yes, her ghost story creeped me out. This episode is silly and fun, so I hope you enjoy!

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.

(Part 2) How to Use Fortnite Cards as an Investing Tool w/ Rob & Joel from @R3Rips and @Modern_card1

If you're a long time listener, you already know that I have a habit of talking about Fortnite cards, so today, I had on Rob (@r3rips) and Joel (@modern_card1) to talk about Fortnite. Rob made this episode really special because he is our first gamer perspective into Fortnite. He knows the skins, he knows why things are popular, he knows what'll pop once gamers really start penetrating the market, so it was really great to get his take. This is part two of our conversation.

(Part 2) CONFESSION: I'm a Grown Adult and I Collect Pokemon Cards w/ Will Gabriel from @silentwill_

A lot of the Pokemon hobby right now has been centered around the monetary value of cards, which is great because there are a lot of things people need to learn and be exposed to when it comes to thinking about hobby collecting from a fiscal perspective. I mean crap, that's what this podcast was built for! But today I want to do something different because while talking about the money isn't a bad thing, I don't always do a good job of balancing the fiscal perspective with the purely collector perspective. So in this episode, I brought on Will Gabriel (William Gabriel if you want to make him a prince) from @silentwill_ and we do talk about some financial and investing topics, but we also do a LOT of talking about Pokemon from the perspective of being a grown a$$ adult buying Pokemon cards. This is a bit of a departure from our normal programming so I hope you enjoy, thank you! :)

My Thoughts on Beanie Babies (and why Pokemon is FUNDAMENTALLY different)

Last week I was hanging out with family and I was unceremoniously outed as a Pokemon investor/collector and then was proceeded to be ridiculed. Ughhh....at some point we've all been there and was put in a position, to "defend" our purchases even though the people we're talking to won't be convinced otherwise. So today, I decided to take that incredibly annoying conversation into a learning opportunity for any of us who maybe sometimes have moments of doubt with Pokemon.

Meet the Data Scientist Keeping the Hobby Honest - Tom from @pancake_analytics

Get ready! This podcast episode I had the pleasure of bringing on Tom from @pancake_analytics and we get super data nerdy.

We get into Data Science, Machine Learning, Models, AI and we apply it to hobby collectibles!

The #1 Topic in Pokemon Collecting that NO ONE Talks About

This is a topic that's near and dear to my heart that gets hardly any love or attention from the hobby overall and that is data literacy. It's a very important topic to cover because data fundamentally has very persuasive qualities and with the lack of complete and accurate data in the hobby collectibles world, I want to share go through a few topics in the hopes that you will be less duped by the bad data out there.

Why I Stopped Buying Graded Cards...(kinda)

In this episode I got into a bit more detail as to why I don't incorporate buying slabs into my main buying strategy for investing Pokemon cards. Now, that doesn't mean I stop completely because there are opportunities I do and am willing to pounce on, but I go into depth why I for the most part stay away from slabs (even though they're my favorite part of the hobby).

Three Expensive Lessons I've Learned as a Collector

As they say (I don't know who they is) you learn more from your failures than your successes, which is true even with hobby collecting.

So what I want to do for this week's episode is go over three expensive lessons I've Learned as a Collector.
