Cardboard Connection Radio

For over 11 years, one of the original online resources for sports collectibles and trading card information, Card Corner Club, has produced a weekly round-up of hobby headlines, interviews with industry professionals while at the same time providing a forum for collectors to learn and communicate with trading card manufacturers about their favorite hobby. In late June 2011 they merged with The Cardboard Connection, and the show was re-branded as Cardboard Connection Radio.

New episodes of Cardboard Connection Radio broadcast live every Wednesday and Friday night at 10:00pm EST through our page.
