In this episode I brought on Joel from @modern_card1. He is a collectibles investor with positions in Pokemon cards (vintage and modern), Football cards and Fortnite cards! I brought him on to get his perspective regarding investing in modern Pokemon cards specifically because a lot of investors are very averse to them. I may still prefer vintage cards, but he offers a lot of information regarding investing in modern cards if you'd like to diversify your Pokemon investment.

Here are some topics we cover:
- Pokemon balancing between print runs and pull rates
- Gold Charizard coming soon?
- Learning from sellers remorse and staying the course
