But not me. I loved them both. Actually I still do.
Now before you break out the tar and feathers, take a few seconds to hear me out. I'm a fan of their articles... not their price guides. Seriously. Some guys read Maxim... others have the Wall Street Journal. But there's nothing I'd rather read on the pot, than an old copy of Beckett or Tuff Stuff.
And last month, I finally ran out of reading material. So I headed over to eBay and picked up a "lot" of 13 magazines that included these seven issues of Tuff Stuff Jr.:
If you're not familiar with Tuff Stuff Jr., it was a sports card magazine targeted towards kids in the early 90's.
I've been flipping through the first issue the past week and was pleasantly surprised by the content. In fact, I'd highly recommend picking up some of these issues if you enjoy any of the following:
Reading Interesting Articles
Collecting Uncut Sheets of Cards
(This sheet was actually from issue #4, not #1)
Looking @ Top Rookie Card Lists
Flipping Through 20 Year Old Price Guide Values
Reflecting on Old Sports Ads
In all honesty, it's probably not worth spending the $4 to $6 people are seeking on eBay. But if you're patient, you can find magazine "lots" and end up spending less than a buck an issue. At that price, you can't go wrong.
So it's time to come clean...
Who did you support? Beckett, Tuff Stuff, both, neither, or other?
Happy Friday everyone and sayonara!
