Benjamin Miller and Michael Diaz-Griffith Curious Objects

Only a small number of people have the resources and wherewithal to collect Hepplewhite furniture or Paul Revere silver, but plenty collect baseball cards, including Randall, the voice behind the viral video The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger. With some fifty thousand cards in his collection, Randall has a bead on the entire field. As this month’s Curious Objects guest, he shares with Ben some of the things he’s learned about collecting strategies and changes in the baseball card genre.
