There’s a new documentary film on the modern world of sports cards.
According to Vertical Entertainment, which has distribution rights, Behind The Card “highlights a large unregulated industry’s path from card creation to the end buyer, capturing manipulation of the card market, card theft, online scams, new technological innovations and the unity of family and friends through a 100+ year history.”
The one-hour, 36 minute film includes interviews with card shop owners, Panini executives, Beckett’s Jeromy Murray, collectors Rob Gough and Steve Aoki, Josh Jacobs of the Oakland Raiders and others.
The film was set to open in some theatres in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Detroit and Minneapolis on Friday, Nov. 17 and available on-demand via Apple TV.
It was written and directed by Chris Fitzjarrald and produced by Jeremiah Rounds.
