Go GTS Live – The Hobby’s Web Show is a production of GTS Distribution. GTS is the industry leader for sports and entertainment collectibles.
When the show made its debut in the spring of 2015, it was the first live, video-based web show dedicated to the hobby. The visual nature of the sports and entertainment trading card hobby demanded a new medium to showcase new products, new, and guest interviews with industry personnel.
The show is hosted by two longtime collectors who have also been involved with hobby media for several years.
Rob Bertrand (@VOTC) was a content developer for Card Corner Club and co-host of the Card Corner Club Radio Show before the site’s merger with Cardboard Connection. Rob continued as host of the newly branded Cardboard Connection Radio Show and staff writer for the website before being hired by GTS Distribution in 2013.
Ivan Lovegren (@WatchTheBreaks) is the creator of the cutting-edge web series The Breaks, which follows the collecting fails of a returning collector. A social media savant, Ivan always has an opinion when it comes to the happenings in our beloved hobby.
The show aires live every Thursday night at 9pm EST, 6pm PST. It streams on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, Livestream, and Periscope. Weekly segments include Hobby Happenings – an entertaining look at that week’s hobby news – Hot in the Shop – a look at new product releases for the coming week – and live box breaks of newly released products with all of the hits given away live to viewers.
