It's still in a very early testing and planning stage, but (as far as I'm aware) the first UK based podcast devoted to Non-Sport Trading cards and related stuff should soon be making itself available! UK CardCast (as it will be called) will cover the whole gamut of non-sport, from a UK perspective, and will hopefully include reports on some of the major, and not-so-major, shows.

Our first test is Collectormania 10 in Milton Keynes next weekend!

Doctor Who and the Railway Generation...

Last Bank Holiday Weekend, I was in Milton Keynes. Yes, I know how to live the high life!
The REASON I was in Milton Keynes is because a friend had invited me to go to the Collectormania show, held at the Milton Keynes shopping centre it probably has a fancy, expensively consulted upon name, but I can't be bothered to look it up - it's a shopping centre).
This was as good an excuse as any I could find to test out my recently acquired digital camera, so I accepted the invitation.
Below (hopefully) a couple of the pictures I took at the show, which had appearences from a wide range of TV and film stars.

I took a lot more pictures; these can be found on the NonSport Update magazine 'Card Talk' message board:


One for the "OddBall" section - the UK tabloid newspaper The Mail on Sunday is offering 'free' X-Men 3 "Power Cards" - 20 this weekend and 20 next weekend. Based on the imminent X-Men 3 movie, each card depicts a character from the X-Men universe with details of strengths, super powers, weaknesses etc. Very much in the style of the Top Trumps card game.
The cards appear to be exclusive to the newspaper...

Quiet... Too quiet...

I've been neglecting this blog, mainly because I haven't had anything new to post about. No money, you see; if I don't have any spare cash to buy cards with, I don't have anything to write about!
Of course, I COULD write about the 'freebies' I've been getting - Inkworks, for example, will send you 'Internet Exclusive' promo cards for their new sets if you send them an SAE (or, if outside of the USA, an IRC)
Here are the latest cards to arrive from Inkworks -
