My passion for collecting started at a young age, with an early love for Batman comics and Pokemon cards. The experience of embarking on these adventures served as a catalyst to turn to trading cards. As a young teen, I moved on from Pokemon and into playing sports, and in turn collecting sports cards. Basketball cards and memorabilia became my main focus - Some of the fondest memories I have are from opening local card shop wax, chasing greats such as Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, and Michael Jordan. Pokemon has always held a special place in my heart, not just from nostalgia, but from a deep rooted bond with my older cousin, Eric, who shared the same love for Pokemon. In 2018, he was unfortunately taken from us and from then on, fueled my passion for the hobby even more, to keep his memory alive with everything I do. As many collectors do as they exit adolescence, college and career building take priority. After spending a few years working in sales in both startup tech and professional sports, I entered the real estate investment & development sector. During this time, I started dipping my toes back into the world of sealed product, graded cards, social media, and networking as a fun diversion from the corporate world.
The side hustle and passion turned significantly more serious in 2019. In January 2021, 21 Prime Investments LLC was officially founded and serves as the operating vehicle behind the Magic. With over 10 years of experience in the sales and corporate world, and 20+ years of collecting, Magic City Hobbies strives to maintain a first-class service and professionalism with warm and welcoming atmosphere. MCH offers middleman services, consignments, grading, and high end sales/purchases. Some of the main tenets of MCH are integrity, transparency, communication, plus an open door to foster long lasting relationships with my clients in the hobby. Part of the thrill of having this platform is being able to assist collectors in achieving their own personal goals and building their collection. Being able to meet many of you through conventions, meetups, transactions,, and other events has been one of my favorite parts of collecting. Looking forward to having you all along for the journey.
