It all started in 1986 for Chris when his mom brought home a pack of Topps baseball cards. From that day on he was hooked. Sports cards and sports became a life-long passion. At the age of 12 through his high school years, Chris worked in card stores and got an early, inside look at the sports cards industry. Chris’ early passion for sports cards turned into a career in sports and marketing. During his 18-year career in sports media, Chris served as a sports writer covering the Philadelphia Flyers for TheFourthPeriod.com, NFL Draft Analyst for multiple media outlets such as Scout.com, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, NFL Draft Scout, Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services, NBC Sports Philadelphia and PhiladelphiaEagles.com, and Sports Talk Show host for 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia.

In conjunction with his career in sports, Chris has been a marketing professional and graphic designer for the past 19 years. A native Philadelphian, Chris currently resides in Tampa, FL.
