Hi! Doug Linn of Quiet Speculation here, bringing you interviews with the top minds in Magic finance. Each week, I’ll be bringing you an hour-long interview with people tapped into the MTG Finance community on every level. Whether you’re a Friday Night Magic hero with a binder full of staples or you want to make this hobby pay for itself, there’s plenty to learn in each show.
First off, this episode was recorded live at a PTQ – I tuned up the audio as best I could but I can’t work miracles. Nick was very patient with me stopping the show several times when it got too noisy around us.
This week, my guest is Nick Becvar of Affinity For Cards. Nick has made a profitable niche of selling at PTQs. If you want to get into dealing but you aren’t ready to commit to a day job, Nick sets out what it requires. You’ll find out:
-The sweet spot of sales for a one-person operation
-Why you need events to get inventory
-The one and only card that Nick wants to hold long-term
-What’s in his “box of shame”
-What kind of shipping problems he’s encountered with over 5,000 transactions under his belt.
and plenty more!

As you’ll hear in the interview, Nick finds his subscription to Quiet Speculation to be essential for making money on Magic. If you want to find out more about QS, you can click here.
