In this episode we talk about:

- W of the Week
- Buy of the Week
- Sell of the Week
- Audience Q & A

L - Eric on Instagram DM’d Paul about Skyler Thompson. This is Paul’s L of the week because Skyler isn’t a good play. The card would have to be incredibly rare and at a good price point.
W - Saw a post from Topps on Twitter, "Everyone holding a 2022-23 Bowman U Chrome Victor Wembanyama green parallel auto redemption /99 is invited to meet us in San Antonio, where one lucky collector will be chosen at random to win Wemby's iconic 1st Card I Ever Signed"

Buying - Arch Manning, Paul Skenes and Dylan Crews. Buy auction only, not buy it now on the cards. Marvin Harrison Jr. Anthony Edwards rookie kabooms.
Selling - Trey Lance. Brock Purdy. Sam Howell - Andy says hold and don’t sell.

L- Trey Lance because of the trade to the Dallas Cowboys. Andy is trying to get out now with the cards he has.
W- Rookie Premier Holo Cards, pro uniform rated rookie. Print run was 250-500, very rare cards.
Buying - Tua, Colt McCoy, Jahon Dotson.
Selling - Dalvin Cook, Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Rodgers.

Lefty - Shohei Ohtani in the news. Tore his UCL four years after reconstruction surgery. Now is the time to buy his pitching cards.
W - Kendall is low key obsessed with looking for a particular card. Picked up 3 Carlos Alcaraz cards at $250 a piece. Also looking out for Ben Shelton and Jannik Sinner.
Buying - Lefty is buying MLB cards that are on the way up. Chourio, Evan Carter, Spencer Jones.
Selling - Jalen Hurts.

Dr. Chad Guell
L- Chad missed the show and tell show last week. Mike Trout and the Angels is an L of the week for him.
W - Delvin Cook signed with the Jets and the cards are up 20-30%. Made some profits and won strongly.
Buying - loves flipping where he can get in and out within 30 days. Trevor Lawrence, Jalen Hurts. All cards Chad mentions are down several percentage points but now is the time to buy because they will come back up.
Selling - Ja Morant Young Dolph/Tuhey card. This card has had several hype cycles where it goes up and comes back down over the last 3 years. Chad will buy them back for pennies on the dollar.

Audience L of the Week
Ohmyshoes has to go to work
Ryan Borusky got back a Tua Optic from PSA. Cracked an SCG 10, looked perfect and it came back a PSA 9.
Craigs Cards 11 says his L is Trey Lance. Bought a bigger Rookie Peacock Choice 2 days before he got injured.
Card_Vibe - bought a Lamar Flawless RPA for 1k and sold for $1.4k and the same card sold for $2250 this week

Audience W of the week
Craigs cards 11 sold Jackson Holliday Blue Wave auto PSA 10. 4x return after grading. Lefty says to hold onto your Jackson Holliday cards.
Jr shoes - got a 2012 NBA Hoops Damian Lillard PSA 10

Strategy - Hyper-relevancy drives a lot of the purchases. Buy the cards that aren’t all the hype.
