As someone who was relatively new to the hobby I had tons of questions, but was having a hard time finding trustworthy and straight answers online. I was an ETR subscriber already, so when I heard they were coming out with a podcast dedicated to all things sports collectibles I was excited. I didn’t know much about Gary and Cody, but they have been exactly what I was looking. Both bring a wide array of unbiased knowledge that really helped someone like myself gain a better understanding of how every aspect of the hobby operates. Putting the podcasts up on YouTube is also a fantastic visual resource. I know it’s not as mainstream as the others, but as a huge hockey fan I hope they discuss some hockey cards and the market sometime soon! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening, and can’t wait to keep learning! Keep up the great work fellas!
