How to Fortify Your Pokemon Investment Portfolio w/ Dan & Travis from


I don’t think we’re in a Pokemon bubble, but whether you feel safe or not, you ALWAYS need to do things that mitigate your risk. Your financial advisor would advice you to mitigate your risk with your normal investments, so why wouldn’t the same apply to Pokemon and hobby collecting investing? In this episode, Dan and Travis from go deep into many Pokemon investing topics that will help you fortify your Pokemon collecting. 

Here are a few of the things we talk about that will do that: 

  • Finding ROI’s in Pokemon 
  • Verifying sealed packs
  • Graders recognizing unique qualities of cards
