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.
If you’re like many of us, you’re collecting Pokemon product you love while also building a nice, cushy nest egg.

For all of us who LOVE looking at hobby collecting from a pragmatic financial lens, you will absolutely love the conversation I had with Jeremy Padawer.

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.

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. But with where prices are and where values are going, these mistakes can turn into very expensive lessons. So what I want to do for this week's episode is go over three expensive lessons I've Learned as a Collector.
