  • CK - how they started, and their growth into one of the largest vendors in the space.
  • CK's operational structure - Policies and procedures, card grading, etc.
  • Discussion about being a large vendor in current market. Is it becoming more difficult? Online vs large LGS business?
  • Large vendors hosting events and their own tournaments (CFB, SCG primarily). Is this something CK has ever considered, or is considering for the future? Why or why not?
  • "MTGFinance" What is Damon's perspective on this niche market of speculating on magic, and magic as an overall investment vehicle.

  • Is WOTC in danger of threatening the secondary market?
  • With WOTC's product shifts, is CK having to revise their business model in any way, or is it business as usual?
