Don Norton collected non-sports cards when growing up, Davy Crockett, Mars Attacks and Civil War News were some of his favorites. After years of being away he got back in the game in the 1990's and now has a collection with hundreds of sets. His favorites are Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, James Bond and Menudo. Okay, just kidding about that last one. He began writing for Non-Sport Update in 2001 with the Cards Online column and began writing feature articles shortly thereafter. Besides cards, Don's hobbies include model building and collecting military insignia.
