Show #207 Prizm Crash + 2018 NFL Draft + Staying Positive
On today's podcast we touch on a wide variety topics around the sports card world and in the world of politics.
First we discuss all the new card sets being released on a daily basis during the last half of the year. It's honestly got to be really hard to manage your cash flow - no matter if you are a dealer or a collector with this many releases coming out. I honestly think it would be wise to specialize in a particular niche - and look to expand into markets that require less cash-flow management like the new card market requires.
I purpose that there be some kind of Group Break Trade Association. Pretty much every industry has one, from Fantasy Sports, to the NRA - like minded people can come together often for the common good. I think group breakers could join forces and create standardize rules & possibly make it a better experience for the consumers who buy into breaks.
I give a quick update on my Amazon, eBay and COMC account sales. Honestly I'm saving most of this discussion for my new podcast at PowerSellingRadio.com - so check it out if you haven't already. I should have another podcast posted later this month.
2017/18 Panini Prizm first off the line NBA baseball box sales literally made Panini's website crash because there was so much demand. While I think the demand was a good sign for Panini - and the basketball card market in general, I saw a lot of negative reaction on Twitter & the Blowoutcard Forums of people who were rightfully frustrated with the buying experience. I share my idea for Panini next time they think they could have this kind of demand - and how it could lead to more sales & less frustration from collectors.
Sports Card Radio hired a full time employee. He's doing a great job - if you've noticed 3-4 new articles are being posted each day. That should continue for the foreseeable future.
2018 Football should be really good. I fully anticipate Josh Rosen from UCLA being the #1 QB on the board, followed by Lamar Jackson, Baker Mayfield, and Sam Darnold. I see a scenario where all 4 QB's could be selected in the top 10 picks - and possibly in the top 5 if there aren't any other impact players on the board (I honestly am not sure). It should lead to very strong sales of 2018 NFL football cards because I could see each QB being valued at over $100 each for autographs.
Lastly, our Make America Great Again segment, I talk about how you can follow the negative news on Trump .... or decide that you are going to make the most of the things you can. His tax reform bill (if passed) could honestly make you wealthy if you listen to the right people. Remember - 95% of Barack Obama's income gains benefited the 1%. You really think Donald Trump will be any different?? That means you can benefit if you know how to think/act like the 1%. If you only read/digest the negative news, I'm willing to bet you will see those negative things happen to you. Only you decide your outcome, not Donald Trump.
