Beckett opens weekly Wednesday chat room on Facebook page

f you enjoy reading the Beckett magazines, follow the company on Twitter (@BeckettMediaLLC), read and contribute on their message boards, and watch their box breaks on YouTube, then a chatroom should be the next logical step. After all, who wouldn’t want to interact with the people who are on top of the sports collectibles hobby?
Beckett junkies, rejoice.
Beginning tonight and every Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time, Beckett media will be launching Chatter Up, a question-and-answer session with Beckett baseball editor Chris Olds. You can find it on the Beckett Media LLC Facebook page.
It will be a simple, real-time chat. Olds is a knowledgeable guy with a newspaper background (which makes him more knowledgeable in my opinion, of course ...). He has a good grasp of collecting trends and sports in general. You are certain to learn something—or just be entertained.
Beckett is even hinting at chatters winning some “cool stuff” each week.
If you are passionate about collecting, it can’t hurt to check out “Chatter Up.”
