Beckett deal when he kind of sold this
company not kind of he did in in 2005.
um and we're gonna we're gonna I don't
want to say deep dive it but I guess
sort of Deep dive at some questions on
my mind in Danny's mind as well and uh
it's gonna be fun we're probably gonna
learn some stuff as as much as we we
know about it right talking to the
person who's right there on the front
lines of the that transaction sure we'll
learn some other things whatever you
know Dr Jim is willing to share we're
going to be respectful of his privacy
you know that is personal dealings even
though it's public knowledge it's still
his personal uh transaction so we're
going to talk about that uh and it's
going to be interesting I believe uh to
say the least so every other week

see you guys again let's Go Round The
Hobby verse and catch up on this week's
hobby news
all right not a huge bunch of stories uh
this week but remember we got to cover
two weeks of ground now because we do
hobby quick hits two times a month
rather than four times a month uh with
card benches uh bursting under the scene
so got three stories today in the hobby
news Fortune uh the big one Aaron judge
home run number 62 ball turned down
three million dollars Corey humans
should have took it I said it then just
had a feeling and based on the final in
the Golden's auction obviously uh I was
right uh some other people said the same
thing it got 1.5 million dollars versus
uh via Golden's auctions uh air quotes
Joe from Wisconsin a memorabilia uh
collector high-end obviously memorabilia
collector uh was the buyer he was quoted
as saying he was very surprised that bid
held up and won but the happy yeah he'll
take it and so
you know unless and then maybe a little
greed there uh now listen don't you know
don't cry too hard for core humans you
know for the price of a Texas Rangers
Yankees game ticket uh he caught that
ball and and sold it for 1.5
uh on on Golden's auction so Roi still
intact but you know cut his profit
margin down in half and then you factor
in all the auction fees and and and that
sort of thing even even more so so uh
just the lesson and
I guess Greed for lack of a better way
to put it uh there uh Mickey Mantle
cards continue to
uh you know bring big money the actual
rookie not the 1952 tops that people
think is this rookie but the 1951 Bowman
a psa9 just sold in Memory Lanes
auctions for
3.19 million dollars and that shattered
the previous record of 750 000 so this
copy uh brought four times more money
than the previous uh sold version so
there you go and let's close out with
upward X signing a young player to an
exclusive contract 17 year old Braden
Yeager uh from the CHL team Moose Jaw
projected to go in the top five of the
2023 NHL draft he's a goal scorer and he
signed an exclusive card deal
memorabilia deal and Auto Deal
[Music]
all right so we're gonna say deep dive
the December 4th uh collectors Fest Mega
show number 85 try saying that 10 times
uh fast again uh we have about four to
six shows at the New York State
Fairgrounds run by promoter Lynn Lake he
does one of those is called the mega
show which is 250 tables and an
accomplices not only cards but toys
collectibles uh games uh other stuff
outside the sports card realm as well he
had this year he had the Ghostbusters
car there he had the Tardis from The Who
and he also had uh Stormtroopers Darth
Vader R2D2 was rolling around on the
floor as part of the Star Wars uh
Brigade there as well great show well
attended I believe over a thousand
people attended I've done shows now
since age of 15 so I got to do some math
here and uh 48 years a couple years I
didn't do any shows but over 40 years of
setting up at shows but this time was
the first as a bulk subber for SGC
promoter Lynn asked me if SGC would be
interested in coming to the show as a
you know to take Subs but not big enough
for them and then you know I asked them
you know about bulk subbing and doing it
at the Syracuse shows and and here
locally and uh we we worked out those
terms and so it was my first foray into
doing that and I want to give a shout
out to my friend Nick Brower who uh a a
a n collect he's gonna he'll be on the
show at some point he's getting the
storm up and running he uh he said hey
John you know we don't normally set up
together but you know if you're going to
do that STC thing uh maybe you know Lynn
could set us up in the same area that
way I can keep an eye on your stuff if
you're tending to SGC stuff or vice
Versa right I can help with the SC table
if you're tending to your stuff and so
Lynn Lynn set us up that way and worked
out great and I was able to sort of wear
those different hats Nick helped out as
well so shout out to him uh got triple
digits in submissions going to S uh GC
and uh at the time of this recording
they are there getting graded and they
will be as as she sees on top of stuff
getting stuff back quick I will probably
have those you know in a matter a few
days here and uh funny story with that
so I I intake these cards uh from other
people right for SG submissions a lot of
them and you know this was Sunday and so
got them all you know got my system set
up got my code and got the package with
all these cards headed sg's way on
Tuesday uh Tuesday afternoon and uh you
know ensured well protected well packed
scented priority so send it Tuesday
right uh priorities two days now it was
Tuesday evening or you know towards the
late afternoon so even at three days
that would make it arrive on Friday
right two days it's Thursday Friday
would be three days well let's track in
and all of a sudden it's in Charleston
Carolina on Friday and doesn't look like
it's getting to Boca Raton Florida uh
you know probably till Saturday at the
earlier well it it tracks but it doesn't
move it's like stuck in Charleston the
date just changes each day and I'm now
my my nerves are shut right these are
not my cards these are a lot of other
people's cards these are a lot of
expensive cars and I'm I'm worried like
why isn't this moved in three days uh
and you know thinking all the worst case
scenarios right what if the packages
damn cards are missing what if the whole
box itself is M.I.A now I have insurance
and uh we can you know that's an episode
Another separate I could probably do
about collectible insurance but you know
I'm insured but I've never had to file a
claim I don't know how it worked because
you know most insurance companies try to
find loophole so they don't have to pay
you know the complete value or or much
as they you want them to and so I'm
thinking all these worst case scenarios
I'll I'll make the story shorter you
know I called us uh USPS kind of told
them the Dilemma they put a search on it
and then I noticed it started to move
again I'm not saying because of that
phone call but it did start to move
again and it did arrive in Boca Raton
Florida to SGC headquarters eight days
after I sent so two day priority got
there eight days later now we know what
time of year it is right Christmas time
big shipping season with president that
stuff uh packages from businesses uh to
to uh retail customers so you know very
busy time of year that you can expect
delays but this was kind of
nerve-wracking and scary but it is there
there they're in the process of grading
that it was really fun doing that at the
show and seeing some of these cards you
know I won't get into all the Gory
details uh after doing it the first time
I did learn uh something that I will
employ at the next show where I take SDC
bulk sub will actually make my life a
little bit easier as well so so that's
in Boca Raton those are getting graded
the show like I said over a thousand
people it did make news uh for another
reason you know Lynn Lake the promoter
put a sign on the door you know eight by
ten sign that said that basically you
know collectors shouldn't really sell to
other collectors and they can sell to
dealers and that should be you know the
only selling should be dealer to
collector collector uh to dealer um and
a lot of people someone someone took a
picture that put it on social media and
it went viral it was making other rounds
people were given their opinion one way
the other and it's funny it really seems
split about 50 50 on people who agreed
with the flyer and people who didn't
agree with the fire and thought it was
in poor taste now we're gonna have Lynn
on sports car Nation so I don't want to
get into a lot of it here on this
episode we're going to speak to the man
uh directly but I've known him long
enough I believe you know it didn't come
from a negative place I think he was
just trying to protect his dealers who
set up at the show and and keep it fair
to collect too but again we'll have that
conversation on Sports Carnation uh with
Lynn himself but I just wanted to kind
of give you a little back story there as
well so a thousand people attended so
the sign didn't scare up scare off that
many people I'm just kidding there uh
traffic was pretty good uh the HTC Subs
were were strong I thought for
especially for the first time out it was
funny and even though the show's done
I've gotten some emails and private
message people couldn't make it to the
show showed it wanted the sub business
as far as selling cards was pretty good
uh you know I've done three shows there
in like the last four months uh the
first one was really good sort of record
setting for a local show then the second
one was bad you know better than the
first one then the third one oh I did
four in like five months and the third
one was solid uh but didn't didn't reach
the level the first two and this one not
including the SGC portion just my my
Newman Sports Card side of the house uh
again a good show very good show and uh
you know I joked with you know I
mentioned my friend Nick that set up in
the round with me um you know we were
joking during the show because he did
pretty well too you know we were just
being sarcastic saying yeah I guess the
Hobby's dead kind of saying it out loud
where people could hear it in twerk or
you know banter with us and that sort of
thing so um you know good very good show
and you know the hobby again is not dead
are there people leaving it sure there's
some are there new people coming in you
better believe so uh it's still
plentiful still numbers and there's
still transactions going down and by the
strength of those SG Subs people are
still grading cards uh and the Hobby's
still doing okay so you know like Paul
McCartney I think you say right uh my
demise has been greatly exaggerated so
um the Hobbies demise greatly
exaggerated as well is it what it was
you know during the crescendo as they
call it the crescendo no and um but uh
you knew that wasn't going to last uh
forever or you shouldn't know it wasn't
left for a rap so I know it felt like it
was gonna and there was times it went on
long enough where you thought the ride
would never sort of stop but uh you know
that's that's not always how it works so
very pleased with the show uh I have
some time off at least from setting up
at shows now uh because the next one's
not till March you know Siri accuse is
very is cold and snowy in the winter and
warm in the summer and where these shows
take place is at the New York State
Fairgrounds where obviously as the name
implies the New York State Fair is and
that's uh it gets seems to get longer
every year and so uh you know we don't
have a lot of shows in the in the heart
of Winter and he you know Lynn has to
schedule the shows around the New York
State Fair while the fair might be 14 or
16 days long there's you know a month of
prep and setup that goes into it as well
where you know he can't get the
buildings for the show and then
obviously after that so the schedules
not every month and then we have a
couple months where we have a show each
month and that sort of thing but you
know after that December Mega show which
is early December
um we you know there's usually not
another show for a few months uh two
months so that will be the next one I do
is I don't really travel anymore uh to
set up at show I used to I mean I do go
to shows every once while in Dallas or
I've made Toronto or whatnot but as a
dealer myself I don't do much travel
something I thought about maybe doing
every once in a while but uh haven't uh
haven't and haven't reached my healing
days in the last few years so always fun
to travel but also gets a little more
trickier uh the older uh you get so
again a very solid show had a blast
hanging out joking with Nick some
friends of mine came by and came behind
the table hung out with me my son came
by and grabbed me some food walked
around checked some stuff out so just a
good vibe a good atmosphere I brought I
brought some cards to Dan Ryan who's
local Dr and United States sports cards
on on Twitter and uh game a couple free
Green Bay Packer cards that I knew he
would enjoy and uh so that was that was
good he gave me a Clem lebine Auto I
didn't know he was gonna do that so uh
you know card shows there's something to
be said you know I always say there's
something to be said about a card show
right those in-person social
interactions talking to people
um and and even the transactions right
to to buy a card and get to see it and
hold it before you make the purchase get
to talk to the dealer you know haggle
maybe what price as a dealer get to buy
some cards from uh the customers that
being said though I will be honest um
I'm trying to think uh I didn't buy any
cards but I did make a trade with a
young man who was trying to they was
playing a contest with his friend they
both started out with the same card and
their goal was to trade up and at the
end of the show see who got the best
card uh from that car and uh young man
came up to me uh with a Bryce or I
should say bro Zach Wilson prism orange
scope prism rookie if you've heard
enough of my content you know what I
think of Zach Wilson as a quarterback
it's not good I even use the bus word I
think he's going to be a bus and this
young man told me the game he was
competing against his friend with and
asked about a couple cards first he
asked if I was interested in the Zach
Wilson and I was pretty strong in
telling him I'm not a big fan of Zach
Wilson don't believe in him but I'll
give this kid credit he was persistent
you know what we trade for he pointed to
a couple cards I wasn't going to give
those up for this card and but very
polite very respectful he tried to you
know be very persistent and then he
pointed to a Mike Trout game use jersey
card you know white as they call him in
Hobby napkin Swatch right I had 30 bucks
marked on the card and he said you know
would you do it uh for that and at first
I'm you know I'm like not really again I
don't really want this Aquos card and
you know I was like please I'm trying to
win this competition and you know uh he
got me he got me I don't think you know
he got me in a bad way like he he
convinced me to uh you know to make the
deal so I traded that thirty dollar
trout white swatch game use card for the
Zach Wilson R uh Panini prism uh prism
card and uh you know I don't know
value-wise are pretty similar so it's
fair in that regard again I don't
believe in Zach Wilson but kind of my
good deed for today I don't know what
the end result was of that that
challenge but uh I guess I did uh did my
part there all right thank you for
