A Tampa native, Kravitz started the challenge at a show in Clearwater, Florida by purchasing a Bo Bichette rookie card for a buck. The card was short-printed, making it worth $15-20. He sold the Bichette rookie to another collector for $12, and the snowball began to form.
He began navigating the room, and before he knew it, that George Washington morphed into Benjamin Franklin. For the rest of 2022, Kravitz would work on the challenge sporadically when making content at shows. This included pit stops in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City, home of last year’s National. Before he knew it, he had accumulated thousands of dollars worth of cards, ranging from popular rookies to rare autographed pieces.
How did he do it? Kravitz’s answer is simple.
“Just like any other work environment, you have the opportunity to network and meet people,” he said. “For me, it was about being patient, being consistent, and having fun throughout. There were shows where I didn’t do a single deal for the challenge, but there were shows that really brought it along.”
Instagram was another powerful selling tool for Kravitz. During our interview, he mentioned that he executed some deals while sitting on his couch, which minimized travel expenses.
Now, 10 months later, the King of the Cards is sitting on an impressive five-digit collection. Let’s take a look at some of the bigger cards from the dollar challenge:
