Joe B returns to the podcast to talk Star Wars Card Trader with Bill and Joe R. They discuss Expanded Universe, trade strategy, tips, trivia, Pokemon, CDs, and lots lots more.
San Diego Comic Con is under way and the Hasbro Black Series Fan’s Choice poll, as well as some recent Legends news, has got the hosts contemplating the role of Expanded Universe characters within Star Wars canon. Lots of very good phone calls, some from last week’s lost episode, spark conversations that vary from Janes Addiction to Pokemon Go.

The Trade Federation #64
Last week there were some technical difficulties that resulted in a lost episode, so this week’s episode, with special guest Joe B. AKA JB1127, is packed with extra phone calls, lots of laughter, and an uncomfortable look at Darth Talon.
For some reason we didn’t even touch on the one topic we planned to discuss: Open Edition cards. If you want to know how to see the counts, contact Joe and Bill (and LightmanX5) on Reddit or Twitter, and they’ll let you know. Hopefully they’ll remember next week.
