No problem. I only listened to a little bit. I've been up since 3:30 AM and don't have the attention span to sit and listen at the moment.

@DrWatson LOL!!!

@KingNampa At about the 18:00 mark, a panelist asks Steve a question and he says "I understand you are moving to Texas?", or something close to that. Steve responds with "Dallas". No real details about the move are discussed.

@Jesse_O thx. So Beckett has offices in Dallas, right? Are they just downsizing and moving in with Beckett?

Called it. Absorbing the company.

I SERIOUSLY doubt they are downsizing!! It would make more sense that they want to be physically closer to Beckett. Especially since the signature verification is now done by Beckett. Later in the interview, Borock talks about meeting with people to examine a magazine sized holder for comics. Since Beckett already has a magazine case, I'd imagine that they are looking at combining the best of both companies. But that is purely speculation on my part.

It is actually in an area known as Flash Flood Alley.

So, all of the graders and such, are going to pick up with their families and move? Or different people will be hired?

That has to suck for many people. I am sure CBCS has many employees that don't make "pick up and move" money.

For once, kaptainmyke might be right. (Okay, maybe a couple of times before.)

This Beckett thing gets hairy-er all the time.

Yes speculation. But all the employees based in Florida are not going to get relocation money, so I assume they will have to shed some staff when they move. Possibly use Beckett existing staff or hire more.

@KingNampa I would imagine that they will hire and train some people in Dallas before the move so they can hit the ground running. Heck, it'd probably be cheaper to fly a few people from Dallas to St. Pete's for a week or two just to ensure they are up to speed.

Remember Dallas is home to Lone Star Comics aka mycomicshop. There are a TON of comic geeks that have been around the hobby for years there!!! I'd think the pool of potential graders would be larger there than in St, Petes.

I hope there won't be any disgruntled graders before the move.

You are thinking of Houston. It doesn't flood in Dallas.





This will make shipping the materials for slabs cheaper from Houston.

I lived in Houston for 30 years and made many weekend trips to Austin and Dallas to party with brahs. Dallas floods. All the time. The freeways are terrible and get flooded. I'm not talking out of my ***
