Collector Q&A:

NAME:

Charles Brandon

Location:

Las Vegas, Nevada

Favorite Sports Memory:

I remember rushing home from school October 15th 1986 to watch the NLCS between the Astros and Mets.  I was so ecstatic to see Billy hatcher hit a dramatic game tying home run in the 14th inning and remember being so dejected when the Astros lost in the 16th inning. I cried.  It was the best game I have ever witnessed, yet the worst too. Here is a link to said memory.

Favorite Teams:

MLB-Houston Astros, NFL- Houston Texans, NBA- Houston Rockets

Who do you collect:

Gary Carter, Carlton Fisk, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens

What do you want to see more of in the hobby:

I want to see more competition in the licensing area. I feel this would breed more innovation.

What do you want to see less of:

I want to see less use of Relics.  The market has become flooded with millions of single color swatches.

Favorite product of the year so far:

My favorite product is 2012 Topps Allen & Ginter

Least favorite product of the year so far:

My least liked product would be 2012 Topps Triple Threads
