Featured Hobby Blog: Stale Gum

Stale Gum is one of the hobby's oldest blogs. Operated and written by Chris Harris, the blog focuses on random commentary on a range of trading card topics. From angst about Topps' latest gimmick to reflections on junk wax, Harris has an opinion about all things sports cards. In addition, as the prototypical set builder, Harris uses his blog as a platform for conducting trades, complete with a section of want lists. The articulate intelligence and knowledgeable insight with which his posts are written are sprinkled with satire and dry humor. Subjecting his readers to the occasional profanity-laced tirades on perceived hobby injustices, Harris' Stale Gum was an early adopter of utilizing a blog to have his voice heard.
