Podcasting has been hot, and is still on the rise if you can believe it…and might be a leading content creation platform for a long time coming. Add in the sports card boom of the last couple of years and you have sports card podcasts growing just as popular.

Why? Because as this very baseball card blog can attest to, newcomers have a lot of questions, and rightly so—there doesn’t seem to be anything straightforward when it comes to “the hobby.” And while I love written content and answering everything from what is a PSA 10 to how do you get a card graded, being able to listen to experts talk about all things cardboard certainly has its place and time.

Even the experienced collector can listen to a podcast and be engaged by the opinions expressed by experts, players, industry insiders, and owners of card shops to help them chart their next moves.

So, we have gathered some of the best and most visible podcasts available, taking into consideration their traffic, subject matter, social media followers, and more! (Know of a deserving podcast, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or find me on social at @ballcardgenius.)

1. Card Talk Pod

Card Talk is a weekly podcast, delivering new episodes every Wednesday about, well, trading cards! What seems to make this podcast great is the focus on card education and pulling back the curtain on everything listeners need to know about their favorite hobby and/or how to make money on the side with cards.

2. The Uncut Sheets Podcast

Perhaps my favorite show name on the list! On a more serious note, though, a podcast choice is a serious commitment. Whether it’s the to-and-from work commute or the downtime during lunch or before bed (that never seems long enough), dedicating an hour is a big ask.

It’s for that reason I encourage you to get as familiar with the hosts and their backgrounds that you can, because there is a good chance a lot of that expertise will flow through to future episodes. With Uncut Sheets, you have Alex, who is committed to educating on fake reprints and cards, and bringing light to scams, and Jordan who isn’t afraid to ask the hard-hitting questions. As a show in a a live and recorded Q&A format, I can’t imagine a better card-talking combo.

7. Golden Age of Cardboard

And while we surely love Luka and Lebron cards, let’s not forget about vintage. A Bench Clear Media production, this podcast is all vintage, all the time—and I love the way they describe that…”there are no chrome cards here…” I certainly love me some shiny, and could gaze upon a superfractor all day long, but I also grew up with junk wax and loving vintage, so I’m all for it.
