Version 2.0 Now Available

The revised and updated version (2.0) of The Modern Hobby Guide to Topps Chewing Gum: 1938-1956 has been uploaded to The Internet Archive (in a DRM-free PDF version). The link at right will take you to the Internet Archive version as I am scrapping the upload.

Please note the checklists are still a little wonky in their formatting and a quick fix is coming, so if you plan to download version 2.0, I recommend waiting a couple more days for version 2.1.There will be a print-on-demand version available at  Watch here for further details.
