The struggle is real, but I love what I do. No pain, no gain. Last Thursday, I posted an article titled "Losing sucks." It felt good to get some of my thoughts and frustrations typed down in some organized format. I hate losing. I am determined to do what it takes to win. I did not intend for the article to sound like a complaining sessoin (which rarely helps anyone) but more of a transparent look into where we are right now. I feel like sometimes we only focus on the bangers
We've always been a transparent company. Let's get real. I am a competitor. I remember losing a baseball game when I was 7 years old and I was devastated. From little league through college football, I have lost a disgusting amount of games. I was upset about each one. "It's not the end of the world." "You'll get them next time." "It wasn't your fault." I have heard it all. While those sentiments may be intended for encouragement, the truth is that losing still sucks. True co

The biggest show in the country this weekend - you read that right. J&J All Star Sports Cards has been running a phenomenal card show in Fishers, IN ever since I got back into the hobby in 2014 (and many many years before). It is at that show that I met the Big Brother to Brothers In Cards - Indy Card Exchange owner Andy Albert. Both Jeff and Andy have been talking about doing a big show for years. COVID through a real wrench in the plans back in 2020. The time is now. We ann
The end is near for some greats. The future is bright for others. Why do I care about who will be good 5 years from now? I own a sports cards business. We think about this all the time.
5 years ago, Patrick Mahomes was a rookie that nobody cared about. We literally sold one of his Select RPAs for $100. That card is now worth 10X what we sold it for. The reason 2027 really sticks out to me is because I believe the "old guard" of NFL quarterbacks will be completely gone by then

Huge marketing fail - don't do what we did. Times are tough. You will be hard pressed to find a small business thriving among the problems our country is currently facing. But every good entrepreneur recognizes that this is not the first time business has been hard. We must adapt and find ways to keep things going. Finding a way to reach our customers while continuing to provide a quality service is still achievable - we just have to make it happen. In March of 2021, we raise
Who wants to get more packs of Prizm for $30 each? 2021 NFL Prizm kept getting pushed back. We planned on using a hobby box in April, then it was pushed to May, and then pushed to June. We felt the best way to honor what we said was to send out redemption inserts so that our customers knew they would be getting a pack of Prizm later on. The time is now! If you got Prizm in the box you ordered from our website, you should already have that new tracking number in that email. If
