November 11, 2022 5 min read

In the sports card industry we have basically everything we could possibly need, and frankly, probably too much of it.

Why Some Athletes Autographs SUCK and What Can be Done About it?

October 25, 2022 5 min read

The sports autograph. It's the quintessential thing that any serious collector wants in their collection on a baseball, basketball, jersey, or anything else with their favorite team logo. Luckily for collectors, most athletes give a nice, quality autograph. However, sometimes the autograph quality is not what you would hope for from many of the newer athletes. More and more these days, we see athlete's signatures turning into scribbles (if they actually try), and just a straight line if they don't. Why is this? Why are autographs continuing to decline in quality? What can we do about it? Today, I'll tackle that and more.

Is the PSA TRADING CARD Slab Finally Dead?

September 27, 2022 4 min read

Is it finally time!? For a long time, PSA has offered an authentication option that let's face it, didn't mean too much for collectors. I used it from time to time for lower value cards, mostly just to get the card slabbed and autograph authenticated. I'm talking about the PSA slab that just says "TRADING CARD." This is the slab that only authenticates the autograph, not the card. Recently, PSA has recently lowered their pricing on their full service slab label, where they authenticate not just the autograph but also the card. Does this mean the trading card slab is dead? That's what we are talking about on today's episode.

More Items Being BANNED? Autograph Industry Changes and What YOU Can do About Them

September 09, 2022 8 min read

This has been happening slowly but surely for some time now, and it's almost even easy for it to fly under some people's radar because of how gradual it is, but the reality of the autograph industry right now, is this: There are so many items that are being outright banned, or seriously marked up in price to get autographed, it is becoming an actual problem in the industry, and to some degree, it even feels like collectors, the ones that really brought the industry up, are getting pushed to the side to cater to casual fans just so companies can put some money in their pockets.
