PackGeek ep #127 | The Amazing Value in PSA & BGS 9s| w/ Mike Moynihan Host of Baseball Collector

Everytime I think about this it blows my mind. You’ll see it often on eBay – a raw copy of a card goes for more than the same card graded a BGS or PSA 9. There are so many examples of this! I’m here to tell you to buy the 9! Mike Moynihan, host of Baseball Collector, jumps on board to discuss this phenomenon.

PackGeek ep #121 | Hobby Shop Profile w/ Mike Becker of Playball Sports Cards in Arlington, TX

As a kid, I dreamed of trips to the card shop. During the school year, I was lucky to make it there once a week. While my memories will always be fond of the card shops of my youth, they pale in comparison to Playball Sports Cards in Arlington, TX. Veteran hobby shop owner, Mike Becker, has created a sports card mecca with his nearly 6,000 square foot hobby paradise – just a stone’s throw from the Rangers’ Ballpark and the Cowboys’ Stadium.
