A Master Class in Sports Appraising: Episode #4 of the CSG Podcast, Collect This!

Posted on 8/25/2022

Two of the hobby’s best cover the evolution of appraising and grading sports cards and sports memorabilia.

This week, CSG Vice President Andy Broome and Simeon Lipman from PBS’s Antiques Roadshow join Collect This! host Alan Goldsher for a fascinating discussion covering the evolution of appraising and grading sports cards and sports memorabilia.

“Andy and Simeon are two peas in a pod when it comes to evaluation,” says Goldsher. “They’ve known each other for years, and their natural rapport and respect for one another’s ridiculously deep pool of knowledge made for a fantastic chat.”

Goldsher continues, “One of the coolest aspects of our talk is all the terrific advice they offer collectors who want to become appraisers or graders. Sure, it’s a long journey that requires a whole lot of work, but Andy and Simeon make it sound so fulfilling and fun that it’s a journey folks might now be willing to take.”

New episodes of CSG's sports card and collectibles podcast Collect This! will drop every Thursday, and can be heard on Apple, Spotify and all major podcast platforms. For more information, write [email protected].
