Bring Egg Salad Guy BACK! — Marty Krim, Master Set Collector — at The National 2022

Bring Egg Salad Guy BACK! — Marty Krim, Master Set Collector — at The National 2022

August 6, 2022

It all started with an egg salad sandwich — albeit the BEST of his life — and now Master Set Collector Marty Krim finds himself somewhat of a sensation after the 2022 National Sports Collectors Convention in Atlantic City, NJ.

The National is all about the people you meet, and Marty is proof of that. We decided to share our entire interview with Marty because it had a lasting impression on us and is packed with wisdom for card collectors in all categories.

After 10 Nationals, Marty says NSCC22 was his last. But, we're thinking a movement around #BringEggSaladGuyBack may be enough to convince him to come to Chicago in 2023.

EXCLUSIVE Interview with Josh Luber—Fanatics, Topps, zerocool and What to Expect in the Card Market

August 2, 2022

What is the Fanatics effect going to be on the trading card market? When we produced our first SlabStox Market Report last month with ONE37pm.com, there were plenty of unanswered questions. We wanted to get you the answers and had the chance at The National in Atlantic City to talk with Josh Luber, Chief Vision Officer of Fanatics Collectibles and the founder of zerocool. We asked many of the questions you have on your mind. And Josh provided plenty of straight-forward answers. Here’s a peek into what’s to come from Topps, Fanatics, zerocool and the hobby in the future.

00:26 - When will Fanatics play big in what Topps is releasing?

1:38 - With basketball and football licenses coming, how long will it be before we see Fanatics' touch on the products?

2:07 - Will the blind-Dutch auction model work its way into Topps sports card releases?

3:27 - Will the blind-Dutch auction be the only method to get zerocool cards?

4:07 - How broad is the definition of culture cards?

4:44 - How long will it take the card market supply chain to catch up?

5:32 - Delayed releases annoy me as a collector.

6:47 - Is Topps, Panini or Bowman Chrome dead?

7:38 - What can collectors expect from Fanatics two years down the road?

8:48 - Will Fanatics grade cards? How streamlined will the experience be?

9:53 - What should the local cards shops expect from Fanatics?

11:33 - How hard is Fanatics going to push on global expansion?

13:03 - Luber's Passion Project: Culture, Commerce and Finance
