Chris Olds Moves to Beckett Media

Beckett's tapped an outsider to join their media operations. I noticed this message on the Sports Stuff blog with the Orlando Sentinel newspaper:
This is the final Sports Stuff entry for Chris Olds as he is joining the staff at Beckett Media, publishers of Beckett Sports Card Monthly, Beckett Baseball and several other hobby magazines.

I don't know what Chris' role will be with the Dallas-based Beckett team. From my perspective, it seems Chris' reception in the blogosphere isn't very warm. I remember reading quite a few back-and-forth comment exchanges about who posted stories first and who was reading the other person's blog for information.

Maybe Eric from the Beckett blog will stop by and give us some information.

Chris lifts stuff from a lot of people. They are not too fond of him - obviously.

I got an email from Eric... I guess he'll be editing two mags: baseball monthly and the graded investor card magazine (which I disagree with on so many levels).

I wonder if the Orlando Paper will hire someone to take over that blog?

Wow, look at how he destroyed Eric's hard work on the Beckett blog in just two days? :/

Well, that didn't take long:

That's pathetic. I don't know what else to say.

Or perhaps they both received the SciFi hobby newsletter in their e-mails today.

But if someone on your blog roll already has it posted first, then credit them.

I can understand if they both got them but Trader Crack posted it a day and a half before C.O.

13 of his last 14 Blog postings have zero comments as of 1:50pm Thursday. Not that my blog is anything to brag about, but I'm not the leader in the industry either.

I don't think Elon, Pepper, or Eric had that kind of run.
