An Unexpected Phone Call Leads to EXCITING News!

As some of you know by now, when I was in Baltimore for The National, we had the opportunity to interview Dmitri Young, which you can see here. He was there on behalf of Memory Lane Auctions who he had consigned his 500 HR Signed Baseball Collection to. Dmitri owns one of the most comprehensive vintage rookie card collections ALL of which are graded at PSA 10's. The collection includes names like Stan Musial, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Harmon Killebrew to name a few. He was very friendly and genuine and yoyu could tell he was really enjoying the experience of attending the show.

3 days ago, I received a call from his manager/agent stating that Dmitri really enjoyed the interview and talking cards and had actually listened to our radio show last Friday and had really enjoyed it. I was obviously flattered, but then he stated the unexpected. He said, "Dmitri wanted to know if you would be interested in having him on the show as a regular guest?" Well I am happy to say that starting next week, 2x All-Star and die-hard collector Dmitri Young will be a monthly recurring guest on our show. Collectors are free to call in and he said he is really looking forward to "talking cards with other collectors."

Pretty cool, eh?

Awesome news! Maybe he can talk shop with Neshek at some point on the show. It should be really interesting to hear things from the perspective of someone in the game.

That totally beats Chuck Garfien telling me that my Bill Melton card creation will be on the Sox post-game.
