A View from the Inside

The one thing that's been missing from the cardblogosphere is someone from the inner sanctum of The Hobby; someone who can look at The Hobby not just from the collector's side, but from the business end as well.

Steven Judd is such a person. He started out at Beckett as an analyst and has spent the last seven years in product development for Donruss, Topps, and most recently Upper Deck. (Among the products he's worked on for UD include Sweet Spot, Spectrum, and UD Masterpieces.) Now out of The Hobby, Judd has taken his unique insights to the internet with The Sports Card File.

You won't find wantlists, box breaks, videos, or any of that kind of stuff. What you will find is a side of The Hobby that most collectors don't understand and doesn't always get enough ink. TSCF is a fascinating read, and I urge you to check it out.
