Eric Norton
Eric Norton

Eric has been collecting cards since he was seven, buying singles with his allowance from the lone card shop in his hometown of Springtown, TX. Ever since then, he has been hooked on the hobby. He has moved all over the country, but spent the majority of his adult life just outside of Seattle, WA, where he served in the United States Army at Ft. Lewis, WA. After his military career was completed, he began working for the Seattle Mariners selling game used memorabilia where the love of the hobby was reignited. Currently, Eric’s collecting interest revolve around picking up cards he had in his childhood that he let go of at some point, and Seattle Mariners third basemen, Kyle Seager.

Paul got his first pack of cards at a birthday party in 3rd grade and he is very thankful he went to that party!!! He set up at his first card show at the age of 13 with his dad and has never really looked back. For over 25 years now Paul has been involved in the Hobby in one form or fashion. From doing his own sports card shows to working at a Hobby shop back in Maryland to even helping a friend run his booth at the National Card Show in 2003. From eBay Stores to Facebook groups and other forums he is everywhere in the Hobby. Paul now lives in Midlothian, TX with his wife and 3 kids! Working at Beckett is like a dream job for him. And being on the Radio is icing on the cake!
