Non-Sport & Entertainment Trading Card News from Non-Sport Update is a sister-publication of Non-Sport Update magazine. Our writers include:
Roxanne Toser did not throw away the cards belonging to her three sons. In fact, she encouraged them to collect both sport and non-sport cards. Through her sons, she became very involved in card collecting. Beginning in the mid-1970s, she became a mail-order dealer and was one of the few women in the field. As both a collector and dealer, she became very well known. The time seemed right for publishing a glossy non-sport magazine in 1990 and she became the Publisher of Non-Sport Update — the first magazine of its kind. She published the first comprehensive booklet on Wacky Packages and paved the way for others to follow suit. Besides the family-owned huge collection of sports and non-sport cards, Roxanne collects nodders and/or bobbing head dolls — of course, non-sport related. In her spare time, she attends bead shows and makes jewelry.
Alan Biegel began collecting non-sports in 1990, with the acquisition of a Mars Attacks reprint set he chanced upon at a local antiques fair. Since that time, he has amassed a respectable collection that spans six decades. Specializing in cards from the 1950s & 1960s, he feels that no set is truly complete without a wrapper to go with it. Alan began writing for Non-Sport Update with Volume 10, Number 1 (1999) and has had at least one article published in every issue since. In April 2002, he was featured as the subject of a Philly Non-Sports Show promo card. Alan assumed the position of NSU‘s Editor-In-Chief with Volume 13, Number 6 (2002).
Harris D. Toser began collecting non-sport cards in the mid-1970s. He helped start the Toser family-run non-sport mail order business with the release of the firstStar Wars card series. He has been a full time Non-Sport Update employee since 1991 and has been the administrator of Non-Sport Update’s online forum, Card Talk, since its inception in 2000.
