Sports Card Strategy Show: What To Do With Your Vintage Sports Cards, Loving The Game Of Sports Cards, NFL Predictions 2021, Don't Get Stuck With The Next Laurence Maroney!

One thing I've realized I'm missing in my Sports Card Content Strategy is a long form podcast. I really enjoy Sports Cards Nonsense and Card Talk, and I have become inspired to create my own long form show.

So I recruited my longtime friend Nate Murphy to co-host a show with me. Nate is a great guy, very knowledgeable about all kinds of sports topics, a past fantasy football champion, and an avid sports talk radio listener. Nate and I also used to host a fantasy football show together back in Michigan in 2006 at a Sports Bar called Norm's Field of Dreams.

But even better than that show was our ability to have phone conversations daily that, if recorded, would have made phenomenal content.

So we've connected again to create content, this time centered around our re-entry into the Sports Card hobby after 30+ years.

In this episode, Nate talks about his history collecting cards, his ability as a kid to keep wax boxes sealed, how many he still has left sealed, and which ones are the most exciting between he and his dad.

Nate and his dad went from collecting cans after U-M football games, to buying packs, going to card shows and buying sealed boxes, now fast-forwarding 30+ years to wanting to figure out what they've got value wise - not for the money necessarily, but for the fun.

The Sports Card Strategy Show hits on the balance between the fun of collecting, to the fascination of flipping and investing.

In this episode we also talk about the importance and art of negotiation at card shows, to the ability to recognize patterns in the modern card market and start to make plays.

We really dive into what to do with your vintage sports cards like 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. Rookies, etc, and how freaking fun the game of sports cards is.

Who's Hot Right Now and Why! Which one of these guys is the next Laurence Maroney?

Mac Jones
Trevor Lawrence
Justin Fields
Immanuel Quickley
Bol Bol
Killian Hayes
Jameis Winston
Teddy Bridgewater
Wander Franco
Vlad Guererro Jr.

And at the end of the show we make some NFL predictions for 2021 and what they mean for which players and cards to target.

This kind of strategy will be continued in future episodes of the Sports Card Strategy Show.

Thanks for watching and listening!
