Each week, I like to interview a member of the Magic finance community about themselves - why they trade, what they like to look out for, and what strategies they can teach us. This week, my guest was Kyle Falbo. He's got an incredible strategy for collection buying that you just have to hear. It involves magical mystery road trips, for one! You'll find out:

-How to vet a collection to find on Craigslist to see if it's worth your time

-planning your tournament trips to pick up collections on the way

-The profile of people who have inherited their friends' collections, and how to find them

and plenty more!

You can listen to the interview here.

As you'll hear in the interview, Kyle finds his subscription to Quiet Speculation to be essential for making money on Magic.

Douglas Linn

Doug Linn has been playing Magic since 1996 and has had a keen interest in Legacy and Modern. By keeping up closely with emerging trends in the field, Doug is able to predict what cards to buy and when to sell them for a substantial profit. Since the Eternal market follows a routine boom-bust cycle, the time to buy and sell short-term speculative investments is often a narrow window. Because Eternal cards often spike in value once people know why they are good, it is essential for a trader to be connected to the format to get great buys before anyone else. Outside of Magic, Doug is an attorney in the state of Ohio.  Doug is a founding member of Quiet Speculation, and brings with him a tremendous amount of business savvy.
