Why I'm NOT Renewing My Beckett Baseball Subscription

Yeah, I know. It's been a while since I've done one of these things.

Sue me.

Look, I'm not knocking Chris or Sooz.  But there's only so much content two people can put out in a month; and it's just not worth the $40/year anymore.

I let my subscription go about 5 years ago. I don't miss it at all. I do buy one Beckett Baseball a year, just for checklisting and trading purposes.

I can get more up to date information on the web than I can from Beckett.

When you held up those covers of months gone by, I giggled a little bit when I couldn't tell it they were Beckett or Tiger Beat. "Fishing For Trout"???

Oh, and Baseball Card Snob, go to BaseballCardPedia for checklisting purposes. You'll be glad you did.

how did you spend $4K+ in 09 when you were on the take?

Haven't bought a Beckett ever. It is and always has been totally irrelevant to my collecting interests.

I am not an avid enough collector to be a subscriber, but do enjoy picking up old issues at shows.

Hot List could be interesting from historical perspective in the future.

I cancelled my subscription in 2006/2007ish i don't miss it one bit. I found them to be pretty useless.
