If you’ve tried to submit cards to grading companies in 2021, you know it’s been a bit of a hassle, to say the least.
Personally, living in Spain presents its own whole other unique set of challenges related to maneuvering in the sports card hobby.
Like many of you, I still have hundreds of cards sitting at PSA headquarters in California. And like many of you, I saw a video by Sports Card Investor in April that gave a behind the scenes look at SGC Grading. …
It may seem silly but I’m always jealous of all of you and your Mail Day content everywhere.
Living in Spain and collecting American sports cards, I don’t get Mail Day, ever.
But this summer, on my return to the US to visit family and friends, I was able to actually open some packages.
Let me know what you think of this guy!

For those of you just getting back into the hobby of collecting sports cards, there’s a lot to learn, trust me!
I just re-entered the hobby this year after a 30 year hiatus, and I’ve already literally written a book about how much I’ve learned — available on Amazon at https://nooffseason.com/book …
And that book was ONLY about what to do with your OLD card collection, never mind all there is to learn about the new ultra modern cards that seemingly come out every week now.
Back in the day, the card companies like Topps, Upper Deck, Donruss, Score…
My son Max and I have had an absolute BLAST this summer ripping boxes and packs of sealed wax. Some of our favorites have come from Chronicles Football.
But we haven’t got a Tua rookie yet. Will this FINALLY be our day?

When I first decided I wanted to sell sports cards online, I had nothing but road blocks.
eBay wouldn’t accept me because I live in Spain but wanted to ship from a U.S. address.
Acquiring cards was difficult, shipping cards was impossible due to my location.
Then I found PWCC. Not only does PWCC store your cards in a vault for you, but they list them…

My son Max and I went to visit Chris at Nash Cards in Mt. Juliet, TN after the Nashville Card Show on July 10, 2021.
It had been nearly 30 years since my last visit to a Local Card Shop.
Much like my trip to the Nashville Card Show, I had ZERO expectations of Nash Cards. …
I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know what the strategy was going to be when I started buying sealed wax directly from Panini in 2021. It’s not cheap, but I just knew I wanted it.
When I bought this box of high end Panini Basketball 2020–21 Absolute Memorabilia cards I didn’t really know what the best cards would be to pull, and at the time I thought I’d probably just be able to flip the box for a profit.
The card market has changed a ton since then, and continues to change on a daily and weekly basis, just like…
As many of you already know, my family and I moved to Valencia, Spain in Summer 2018. I run a couple of different US-based businesses, and all of our family is in the States, so we travel back quite a bit.
I returned to “The Hobby” in 2021 in a big way, and have been wanting to experience everything from actually having a great “#mailday,” to ripping product to even attending card shows.
For some reason, I tend to struggle integrating what I’m super-passionated about hobby-wise as an individual with family time.
For example, I’ve always loved playing golf…
One thing I never realized when I got back into the Sports Cards Hobby, is just how much my kids would love it and want to be a part of it.
I mean, it completely makes sense. I became addicted as a kid, saving up my money for sports cards every week and making a trip to the local card store with my parents to buy and rip as many packs as I could.
Recently, not only my 11 year old son Max, but also my 10 year old daughter Samantha has really gotten into it with me and has…
If you’re just getting back into the hobby of collecting sports cards again, you might have quite a few questions about some of the new products you’re seeing, and why they’re so expensive.
Let’s be clear, there’s a difference between buying products on the second hand marketplaces such as eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Etsy, and even new ones like StockX, StarStock, etc. and actually buying them directly from the Manufacturers like Panini, Topps and even Leaf or Upper Deck.
Second hand marketplaces resell basic product at a large mark-up, because the market will pay the asking prices due to the…
