Do you like trading cards?


Then you need to check out Non-Sport Update magazine, produced right here in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
From their website:
What is Non-Sport Update (NSU)? Non-Sport Update is THE magazine for collectors of non-sport trading cards (cards that focus on movies, television, sci-fi, comics, music, etc.--anything other than sports). The magazine is published bi-monthly in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Each issue is filled with features and departments focusing on the latest trading card releases, ads, our big price guide covering card values from the 1880s through today, and promotional trading cards. In our articles, we cover both old and new card releases. Inside the magazine, you will also find contests, a schedule of card releases, and much, much more.

Columnist Dave Thompson also sent this note along to me:

Hey, Comix Connection's Ken Ketterer is in the current issue of Non-Sport Update! It's in the "Non-Sport University" column, a piece done on the humble beginnings of some of the hobby's big card collectors. Ken was interviewed at the new Mechanicsburg store, where he clerks, stocks, advises and blares annoying classic rock music over the sound system. He's been into cards since he was widdle, and has plenty of good stories and tips on cards. I write the column for Non-Sport Update, the one magazine of news and resources for card fans who collect outside the sports realm. My "University" columns help "de-geek" the hobby for newbies and casual collectors; we want to help them jump right in without feeling like an outsider. Look for the issue with the cast of "Lost" on the cover.

So if you collect trading cards of the non-sport variety, check out this great magazine... it's got it all!

Widdle Ken hits the big time!! NICE!!

But to be fair, I have never heard him blare "annoying" music at the store. He listens to some good stuff!

Rock on!

Well, Dave-O's alter ego is a DJ, so I think he's pulling Ken's leg about them kids and their loud rock-n-roll.

...Well, if Dave-O finds Barry Manilow ,The Monkees, and Bobby Sherman "annoying",I will be sure to turn it down when he is in the store....tee-hee
