His former podcast, Star Wars Collectors Galaxy, was a favorite collector focused show of mine for the last year. Vintage was a huge reason why that was. Just brings just as much interest in the area of modern as well as vintage. He a knowledgeable, nice guy, who has a great presence behind the mic. Give him a listen…
