Way back in 1998, I came up with the idea of creating a database for collectors to track when they mailed out a letter to athletes asking for an autograph. I went on to launch autograph request tracking as the key feature on SportsCollectors.Net in 2000 and it has been such a helpful tool for collectors. So many of us have been able to track my own successes and failures, and see how our collections grow.
Earlier this morning the SCN community hit a pretty significant milestone with 2 million successes tracked in our system. For context, the community of 1000's of collectors enter an average of over 300 successes each day. It still sometimes blows my mind that so many folks enjoy using this system and what we have accomplished as a group.
To show our appreciation, I am extending the subscription of 100 members by 3 months. We will be randomly selecting 100 active subscribers who have entered 10+ successes in the past 90 days. If you are selected, you will receive a message from us with the details.
I'd like to thank everyone for all your contributions and for making SCN what it is today, you are all amazing.
I am a huge 1980's basketball fan and love the Star basketball sets!!!
The 1984 Star set was the first and it was loaded with some key rookies from 1982-1984 (since 1981 Topps was the previous issue). I was psyched to see a dealer breaking up a near signed set with 254 cards
and thought it would be fun to share the results:
