The Modern Music Amassment of Jim Jackson
To paraphrase the old Kenny Rogers tune, "There’s some card for every collector, and Jimmy’s love was modern music." Well, it isn’t quite as catchy as the original, but the sentiment still rings true. Jim Jackson has built an outstanding collection of modern music cards and he shared his knowledge and passion with SMR.

Collecting the 1978 Topps Battlestar Galactica Card Set
Battlestar Galactica falls well-behind Star Wars and Star Trek in terms of popular 1970s Sci-Fi. Still, the cast was star-studded, and the show was enough of a hit to warrant a Topps trading card issue. SMR journeys with collectors to the end of the galaxy in their quest to build the perfect set!

Buy What Makes You Happy
What is the greatest hobby advice that a collector could hope to receive? Buy rookie cards – Sure... You can’t go wrong with vintage – Not bad... Non-sports is on the upswing – That might work... But the best advice that one could ever receive is also the simplest. Buy what makes you happy.
