The 2010 "Benchies" are still a few weeks away. So, it is time to update your collection stats and web sites, finish those sets and organize your team collections. The rules will pretty much be the same as in years past and I am adding a new division! As always, the "Benchies are open to regular members in good standing. This means 20+ trades and have never been suspended, AND have a perfect 5.0 trader rating!. The 2010 "Benchie" Awards categories are: Super Collector, Player Collector, Team Collector, Set Collector, Best Vintage Card, Best Modern Card, Best Theme Collection, Best Graded card, Best Football card, and...Best Non-Sport card! I will make a thread with the official rules, format for entry submission, and the deadline to have your entry(ies) in by in a couple of weeks!

Always a great time to see some really AWESOME collections. I look forward to this every year. Get those sites and buckets updated and send in those submissions!

Tal, THANK YOU for running this again. You always do a great job!

Now, off to make some wantlists and get my www updated. Maybe this year could be the year? :rolleyes:

I do not care how you get the pic, as long as the card is yours, in hand.

Was a tough matchup last year in the Theme Collection category. Best of luck to you this year, Dewayne!

Hi,
Just curious,.
My question is that my Non-Sports card has to be videoed through light.Its from the 90's and is part of the "Tri/Di-Flex" cards when they hit.Its like the "Sceenplays" that came out back then.
A scanner will just draw a blank.
Are video's allowed on card submissions?

Yes it is a newbee question I will admit,

Thanks,
Clint

I have never heard of that type of card or can even imagine what you are describing, but sure if you can upload a video to photo bucket or you tube I will enter you in.

Thanks,..
It's a cool card but its transparent and as to be held up to a light and tilted to see the action,.
I'll try to get it submitted by the deadline,.

Thanks for your quick reply,
Clint
