New Sports Card Talk Show “The Hobby”

WGR 550 AM Saturday 8-11 AM EST

WGR 550 AM Saturday 8-11 AM EST

Well, it’s about time that we had a talk show that transcends the normal daily banter of sports and delves into the sports card and memorabilia market.

Mike Schopp of WGR 550 AM in Buffalo and co-host of “Mike and The Bulldog Show” is beginning a new Saturday morning show called “The Hobby” The show will feature an array of experts and enthusiasts within the industry shedding more light on a variety of topics relative to the sports card and memorabilia market.

The show is slated to be on from 8 AM to 11 AM EST on Saturdays and is available for podcasts or listening online.  It will also have online archives available for downloads.  “The Hobby” has its maiden voyage set for this Saturday September 6th. 

Schopp is, himself, a collector and his newfound passion for the hobby is compelling.  I had the distinct honor or taping a brief show segment with him talking about baseball prospects and the nuances of the online marketplace.  While my interview skills are as raw as an 18 year old pitcher in AA, I am humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to share some opinions on the show.

I, for one, think “The Hobby” has the potential to be a big hit not only in the Buffalo area, but on the national scene as well.   Our beloved hobby can definitely use a shot in the arm connecting with various media outlets in an effort to attract new collectors to this exciting hobby and market.

Show your support for the show by listening in.  Mike is also very accessible via email and is open to listening to various ideas for show topics and discussions.
