Hey Dr. Beckett, do you know why the Beckett podcast has not been on lately?
Learn from one of the hobby GOATs
"Insights" is a great name for the podcast. For your sports card education, why not learn from one of the legends? Getting back into the hobby, this is one of the podcasts that has really helped me catch up with what is going on today and balancing it out with historical references and perspective.
My favorite podcast
I love to hear the old stories of collectors and card shows. Also love to hear the sober opinions of a legend (Dr Beckett).
