    E31 - The Tide is High in the Hobby

    E31 - The Tide is High in the Hobby

    Leighton Sheldon of Vintage Breaks and Just Collect hosts a jam-packed hobby-based episode that talks about the current state of the hobby. Leighton talks about using the high tide of the hobby to sell out some of the "back shelves" of your collection to fuel a fund that puts you in a position to capitalize when a sexy collecting opportunity comes along. Selling off some of your less-revered cards can help you get used to letting go of pieces, and reward you with the ability to purchase that upgrade that comes your way easily, instead of scrambling for funds. We also discuss the grading backlog and how it might affect the hobby and we rail about redemptions.
