For this episode I had the pleasure to bring on one of my good hobby buddies James. I wanted to bring him on because I love his perspective and insight into the hobby. He's spent some time in the finance world so as a former day trader, he applied the same methods and principles he learned from doing that to Pokemon.

Here are a few things we cover:
- determining which sets to invest in
- buying raw singles and getting them graded
- finding pockets in the market with great ROI's
