HIGHLIGHTED FEATURE: Signing Habits of Active Players

A little bit of SCN History

Way back in 2009, I introduced the Players and Teams functionality on SCN in a blog post. I was really excited when SCN was the first (and still only) site to offer collectors the ability to easily see signing habits of players on specific teams for the 4 major sports going back to 1948.

I personally have enjoyed using this feature to help me figure out who to write to next with an All Time Red Sox project.

People collect Active Players!!!

While today's NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB players do not sign nearly as much as they did even 5-10 years ago (especially with the effects of COVID-19 on our society), there are still plenty of collectors who want to try to send newer cards to today's players. I don't blame them.

Over the past few days, I have had 2 collectors reach out to me asking for the ability to filter for only active players who sign TTM. I showed them a feature that they didn't know about to get this info (and now have hopefully made it easier for you all to find it too).

Seeing the latest signers by Sport and Year

As part of that 2009 launch of Players and Teams functionality, I added a pretty cool feature that returns the latest signers for all players who played in a game for that year. If you choose the most recent season, you should see active players sorted by who has most recently had successes reported. Below is a screenshot:

Latest Successes by Year

Making it easier to find Active Players who Recently Sign

On the Players and Teams main page, you should now see blue links for each sport labeled "Show Active Players".

In the screenshot below, you can see these links designated with the red arrows next to them:
