Hobby veterans Mike Berkus, Bob Wilke and John Broggi host The Traders Speak. All 3 hosts have been in the hobby since the Ď70ís and are not known for their shyness.

This is the group we hear everyone in the hobby talk about reaching. We are reaching out and making collectors out of them."

"The Traders Speak" is off and running. Each weekís show discusses sports collectibles and their values. Within the first 5 minutes, people are clamoring to call-in, ask questions and remind the hosts over and over again, "Man, this show is great!"
