Im from maine and its hard finding his cards but this site has helped alot in 1 year and 1 month i went from 3 base cards to what i have now with help with card shops and shows

    Ebay costs money, trades cost money, buying packs costs money, having trade bait costs money! It is only my opinion, but I think you are eliminating some truly great player collectors only because they don't have the financial resources to be considered a "Super Collector".
    It's true that this hobby costs money but here is an example for you. I collect Negro League cards from any player. So far that list is up to 108 players of which I have acquired 395 cards--I have only bought 50 of those cards(2 sets from Ebay). All the rest came from trades or freebies people sent out.

    I also think that people are passing judgement a bit early. Only three SC's have been announced so far. I'm kind of spreading out the announcements due to my time and the voting process. I think you'll see a decent range of collections that make it to SC.

    Plus, it's not like we can run obtain financial records to see what people can or can't opend on cards

    One thing is we don't compare your collection to other Nixon collector's, we judge each collection on it's own merits. If you'll look in the General Talk forum and read the posts for the three SC's you can see some highlights from their collections. You have a very good collection but you may see some differences between yours and theirs.

    I think someone mentioned making the SuperCollectors stand out a little more from the current HOF bold status. What about changing the font color for the SC's? Make the SC members red, or blue or something. Just a thought.

    I agree. Just scrolling through the list of player collectors it is hard to see who is a super collector. Users who have all caps in their username look like supercollectors. Maybe a separate list at the end of the supercollectors and who they collect.

    I assume you don't have a site to display those. Check this one out http://www.gracecollector.com/, as your collection would look superior displayed this way or in a similar fashion. I wish I had the technical "know how" to do one like it myself.

    Kind of an off the wall question. If I submit a collection and it gets turned down is there any way to find out how close it came to qualifying? If so I might have a better idea of when to resubmit it rather than wasting everyone's time by resubmitting a collection that is way out of contention.

    I will send in a white envelope with toploader if sending one or two moderately priced cards. You can do the same with me. I can't afford the postage to send every single time in a bubble mailer. Thanks.

    We are not using set standards for voting because there are so many variables in player collecting. What I would recommend to anyone who got turned down is to look at some of the collections that were accepted and compare. If you have a smaller percentage of total cards, then try and raise it some. If you do not have many GU, then try to add some more. Same things with autos, etc. Also, to anyone turning these applications in, make sure you have a wantlist or havelist. You will not be considered without one.

    Suggestion for distinguishing the supercollectors... how about just adding the title above the avatar and below the name... example, mine would be:

    ragtop12
    H.O.F.
    Barry Bonds Supercollector (or Barry Bonds SC) or somehting like that
    Then my picture of the avatar

    Just a suggestion.
    Obed
    Please excuse delays in shipping. I do mail at least 1-2 times per week. So please be patient; you will get your cards!

    Trading ONLY for Pirates autos I need, any/all Forrest Griffin cards, 2010 Topps and 2010 Topps Heritage (for son's 1st sets!), Nicer Steelers cards (GU/AU/Ref/etc.), all Troy Polamalu, and Dean Palmer I need

    Ok, sound advice. I am not sure I was clear in my question. Will we be able to get a vote percentage or count like in MLB HOF voting? If I missed by one vote and added 25 cards I might try again the next month. If I missed by all but one vote I would probably wait close to a year and try to significantly improve my numbers before resubmitting.
