For episode 44, Geoff Moes (@ThallidTosser on Twitter), Nat Moes (@GrandpaBelcher), and Josh Chapple (@joshchapple) join David P. Baum, longtime owner of a card and comic book store in Northern Ohio. He doesn’t have a personal Twitter account, but (Pop! the store has one, as well as a Facebook page and Discord, if you’re interested.
Here’s the timestamped table of contents for your listening ease and enjoyment:
02:29 – Dave Discovers the Magic
17:39 – The First “Grand Prix” and SandCon
32:18 – Origins 1995
Total runtime – 45:39
As just a taste of the content, here's one of the first things we talk about: Dave gets his first boxes of Unlimited from a sports card dealer and sells them at a little sports card convention without knowing what they are. He opens some starters and “auctions” some singles, including Demonic Tutor. Did he sell a Black Lotus?
I'm sorry that my misplay affected you so much, its the only thing you remember from the event.
That's not true. I remember a lot and can watch the rest on Twitch. I also remember the match that had 30 minutes of shuffling.
The videos from each round are also up on YouTube under the Serious Vintage channel. Check those out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH-ba9DN4YQ&list=PL3klcfmNMPqH5nH3w4bJV3RIdUoZSOKMx
My money’s on Josh “CoffeeCup” Chapple, “The Late JC.” I know what he’s playing and it is hot.
Also hype for Twaun P. Pwnertown and Mark Trogdon showing up out of nowhere. I’m hoping for some creative solutions out of those two.
And it’s J. Pare’s M.O. to not play for years and then 5-0, 10-0 the Swiss.
There’s no shortage of talent here, but all of it is drunk. Should be a great time.
