Baseball is BUZZING right now between the MLB Draft currently going on (and making me feel old), the Home Run Derby tonight and then the All-Star Game on Wednesday…phew that’s a lot of baseball. Why not kick back and give your brain a rest from America’s pastime to check out our MVP Monday Jeff Berg!
What are you looking forward to this Summer?
Lots of shows and my son’s baseball games!
Love a good Summer show!
Do you have any hobbies? Rec leagues, art, music, etc.
Rec leagues, art, music, etc. – comic and toy collecting, video games.
Similar to my hobbies which consist of TikTok, Makeup, and Dancing! LOL
What is your favorite movie & why
Too many favorites to narrow down but a current favorite is ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
Not even lying… SAME! I may be obsessed with Tom Holland right now too. Totally ship him and Zendaya.
What superpower would you want if you could choose your own?
Flight, that way I can skip airports and come and go as I please.
Well when you put it that way… I may have to switch my mind reading dream to this
Do you have any pets? (include pics!)
Aw… 🙁 I have a toy poodle named Chase after Chase Utley
What are your favorite sports teams and why?
San Diego Padres. I’ve been a fan since the 1990’s. I was a huge fan of the 1998 World Series team and of course now with Tatis and Machado!
SORRY BUT… GO PHILLS
What 2 items would you want on you if you were stranded on a deserted island?
Phone and Wi-Fi.
Very GenZ response…
Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
– well normally I would say no but now hmmm….
LITERALLY NO. I am passionate about this one.
What’s your favorite product that we sell?
Love a good comic … but which one is the real question?
Do you have any collections of your own?
I have an extensive collection of comics, toys, dvd’s and video games as well as a modest collection of cards.
OKAYYY LOOK AT YOU GO! SUPER AWESOME!
Tell me about your background with DA/HP? What attracted you to work for us?
Will Mason recommended me (twice)!
Not once everybody… but TWICE!
What was your career before DA/HP?
I managed a GameStop and had numerous other less exciting retail jobs. I also co-owned a space at the Walden Avenue Super Flea for 8 years!
Awesomsauce! Great stuff.
Is there an achievement or contribution that you are most proud of?
I definitely love telling some of the stories of some amazing Star Wars buys, including one where we acquired a very rare figure that sold for crazy money.
I love a good story like this one… one that gives off some smiles and makes everyone so excited and motivated!
Is there a particular moment or time that sticks out about your experience here?
Too many to narrow down, but it’s always an adventure when we are traveling with Mike Carbonaro!
I am sure there is never a dull moment with him!
What makes you love your job?
Definitely it’s my co-workers. In over 30 years of working, I can safely say, I wouldn’t trade my co-workers here for any other job!
Why am I tearing up from this response… I LOVE THAT!
Thank you Jeff for all that you do! You’re the real MVP!
