Together, they discuss their experiences hanging out in Rosemont, Illinois, for the 43rd gathering of all things sports and collectibles. What did they find? Who did they run into? Was it really as hot and humid as everyone was saying it was? Overall, where do they see the hobby heading?
And, as a bonus...did Shawn get Lou to finally experience his first live wrestling event?!
Ray Schulte, the Director of Media Relations for The National Sports Collectors Convention, joins the boys to talk about the 2023 event in Chicago, what goes into preparing for the hobby’s premier event, who he’s most excited to see this year, his own personal collecting habits and the parameters of what makes a good collection.
The “most professional wrestler” (and multi-hyphenate) Brian Myers joins the boys to talk about growing up a New York Mets fan, what he collected as a kid (and now!), the rise in collecting during COVID, why he always roots for the “heel” and, because of that, who he’s most excited to meet at the upcoming National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.
New York Yankees beat reporter Bryan Hoch joins the boys to talk about growing up a Mets fan, what prompted him to document Aaron’s Judge’s historic 2022 season for his book 62, becoming friends with the family of Roger Maris, who they believe the real home run king is and, of course, that time his wife hit the stage and danced with Bruce Springsteen.
Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench joins the boys to talk about his battle against skin cancer, the excitement around Shohei Ohtani, whether or not he could have duplicated his stats on the mound (Johnny was kidding…calm down) and if he thinks Joey Votto could end up joining him in Cooperstown.
