Topic: Other Non Comics Works
I met Laura Rosenberg of PSA.com at the recent 2009 Long Beach Comic Con while she was at the PSA vendor booth.
Even though I don't 'collect' sports cards, I still have some from my 'youth', plus several non-sports cards sets of comic book characters and TV shows. So I made the time to check out what PSA had to offer in third party grading for cards as I knew that PSA has a good 'rep' in the industry. (I had not seen them represented before at other comics cons.)
Laura pointed out the current issue of the SMR (Sports Market Report) magazine, and it immediately was one that I wanted! The cover had one of the 1966 Batman TV Show Cards featured in a PSA encapsulation. So I got that issue to read later.
I'm glad I did! There was also a back of the magazine feature of the 1966 Green Hornet TV Show card set! I'm a 'little' excited about the upcoming 2010 Green Hornet Film as well. So this article and the Batman cards article were good reading for me!
And neither article was about sports cards in this 'Sports Market Report' magazine! That's why you can't judge a book (or magazine or comic, etc.) by their title!
Here's what else is in this November 2009 issue, (of course there's Sports Cards info!):
•The Baby's Set – The Top 1975 Topps Football Set
•Taking My Hacks: Stretching the Truth
•A Note About Pricing
MARKET REPORT PRICES
