Stale Gum on Hobby News Daily

A couple of months ago, I ran into my friend and fellow Hobby Hotline co-host Danny Black, who was starting a new Hobby news website.  I asked him if he was interested in a bitter and cantankerous former baseball card blogger who could contribute one or two 800-1000 word screeds a month.

Surprisingly, he said yes.   

Anyway, my first article for Hobby News Daily is up, (I didn't come up with the headline.)  and if you were familiar with what Stale Gum was in the pre-blog years (all six of you), you'll recognize the "Chris' Notes" style format immediately.  Believe it or not, I actually praise Topps, before shitting all over them for the steaming pile that is 2022 Topps Chrome Sonic.

And after you're finished reading my first article, check out the rest of what's up on HND.  Technically, we're in "soft launch" mode for the rest of March, but there's some good stuff up there already from voices you may or may not be familiar with.
