About Tuff Stuff’s Sports Collector’s Monthly Magazine:

With 20-plus years under its belt, Tuff Stuff’s Sports Collectors Monthly  is the hobby’s only all-sport price guide (baseball, football, basketball, hockey, racing and more). Why buy a guide for each sport, when you can receive insightful player profiles, in-depth articles on collecting, and the latest news on what and who’s "hot and not," all in one comprehensive guide?

History

Founded in April 1984, Tuff Stuff took its name from the "tough stuff" that retailer and original publisher Ernie White offered in his store. Tuff Stuff continued to help readers find the "tough stuff" through several incarnations, first as large newsprint publication and later as a glossy tabloid magazine. In 1990, Tuff Stuff changed to a standard magazine size with a glossy cover — which is how it remains today. In 2008, the magazine’s name was changed to Tuff Stuff’s Sports Collector’s Monthly.

Tuff Stuff joined the Krause Publications fold in 1999, which combined it with its own Sports Cards Magazine to create a pricing powerhouse. Krause Publications joined the F+W Publications lineup in 2002.
