The other day, I stumbled on a podcast dedicated to sports trading cards, Sports Card Radio. I like podcasts. I like sports cards. I thought the show sounded like something I would enjoy.
The first episode I listened to was episode #146. Host Colin Tedards talked about the Industry Summit, the official sports card and collectible trade conference, held annually in Las Vegas. Evidently Tedards and his brother were banned from attending this year’s show by its promoter, Kevin Isaacson, for “a couple things” they said about last year’s show.
He began talking about the Industry Summit at around the 14:30 mark.
I don’t know what he said about last year’s event, but he said in this podcast that anyone who purchased a booth at the Industry Summit was an idiot. He also said Isaacson was an idiot. He also said that if you do go to the Industry Summit, don’t talk to the idiots who work for the sports card manufacturers because they probably only make $35,000 a year. He then instructed his young listeners to stop the podcast and tell their moms that they want to work for a sports trading card company where they can expect to make $35,000 a year. Tedards then said that if the moms have any sense, they will encourage her sons to go to college and get a better job.
Here’s a clip:
If you can make $35,000 a year cutting lawns for a landscaping company, more power to you.
I highly recommend Sports Card Radio. It’s highly entertaining.
