“I always check this every week on youtube since I never check it out live. Decided to try podcast form this week. It’s still a good option, but youtube gets the edge because sometimes they show things and it’s nice to be able to look away from my video game or whatever else I’m doing to see what they show. That’s the biggest loss of podcast form.
If I had any complaint about the show as a whole is that they’re card knowledge doesn’t go much past basketball and a little football. I cringe every time they talk about baseball. They really just don’t know anything about it.
They were once talking about a Pete Rose RC and the Josh guy didn’t understand why a high grade copy is so pricey. Nevermind that Rose is the all time hits leader and one of the most popular and infamous players in the game’s history. You dont have to be a baseball expert to understand this.
When talking about the Wagner card. The Chris guy said its value doesn’t really have anything to do with him as a player, which is not true. He was considered the greatest SS of his time and either 1A or 1B alongside Cobb as greatest of the era. The rarity of the card plus his greatness and the story is why its so valuable. If he wasn’t so great, the card would have likely been forgotten long before it gained its fame. Thats more of an opinion. But an informed one.
Basically. I just wish they wouldn’t talk about baseball much if at all. It’s cool if you dont like it.
Last thing. Crossover drinking game. Take a drink every time...
Someone says ‘grail,’ ‘goat,’ ‘legend’ or ‘the hobby.’
And enjoy your alcohol poisoning”
