Netflix has signed a deal with Goldin Co to bring a new reality tv show focused on the collectables industry to light. The show will focus on Ken Goldin, the founder of Goldin Auctions showcasing rare cards from the world of sports and Pokemon alongside other sought-after collectables.
In an Instagram Post, Ken Goldin shared the news confirming that the Netflix show focused on Goldin Co will be made with the help of Connor Schell (the creator of The Last Dance) and Brent Montgomery (the creator of Pawn stars).
Whilst the main focus of the trading card investment market in America is sports, this will be an incredibly exciting insight into the world of trading cards as a whole. For many Pokemon TCG collectors, we’ll get to see the behind the scenes of some of the hobby’s most elusive auctions such as the 1st Edition Base Set Charizard that sold on Goldin Auctions for $369,000 in 2020.
Bloomberg News has given us a bigger insight into the planned Netflix series highlighting the new trend for streaming sites to focus on reality tv. The article describes the upcoming show as an “unscripted series that will take viewers into Goldin’s weirdly compelling subculture of hawking baseball cards, signed jerseys and movie props.”
I’m sure we’re all aware of how addictive reality tv shows like Pawn Stars real are. Earlier this year we interviewed Gary Haase “King Pokemon” who made his name in 2016 when he appeared on Pawn Stars with his insane Charizard collection. A new Netflix show is a huge opportunity to turn even more eyes to the collectables hobby and who better to do that than the man behind the greatest sports documentary series of all time (The Last Dance) and the most famous pawn reality tv show (Pawn Stars).
I for one can’t wait for this show to release on Netflix. Hopefully, it’s entertaining enough so that our partners tune in alongside rather than having to fight for the remote!
Is a collectables reality tv show on Netflix something you’re excited about? Is Ken Goldin about to become a household name?
