Rudy On The Racks

Just a quick post to let you know that the newest issue of Non-Sport Update should be hitting newsstands now, if it’s not already out. This is the bi-monthly magazine about collectible trading cards that don’t feature sportsball players on them. I’ve been a contributor to NSU for over 25 years now, and it’s still a treat to see something with my byline available on magazine racks.

The cover feature is an in-depth look at the next set of Star Trek: Discovery trading cards. There’s also a great speculative piece on missing cards from a 1957 Topps “Hit Parade” set; a look at a 2008 Donruss celebrity set; a profile of sketch artist/cosplayer Lindsay Greyling and  much more.

This is the annual preview issue, which gives collectors a heads-up on what to expect from the major trading card manufacturers over the next twelve months.

And my contribution is a detailed look at RRParksCARDS’ second set of Ultraman Trading Cards.

That’s all in the new issue, plus there’s all kinds of news, the regular price guide feature and a cool bonus trading card that previews an upcoming set on Roman Emperors.

Look for Non-Sport Update at your local newsstand or bookstore, or order it directly from the publisher. 

And that is this week’s self-horn-tootery from your humble PopCulteer.
