|Card Sets and Wantlists on SCN|

If you collect signed sets or signed cards, it is extremely challenging to stay organized. It can be difficult to keep track of the cards you need and the signing habits of those players. I am a set collector and I have felt this pain over and over and over.
For quite a few years, members have been asking me for the ability to track the signed cards they are looking for in their collection. While you could start a thread on some message board or email around a spreadsheet, they're a lot of manual work and are terrible solutions.
Last year I launched SportsCardDatabase.com (SCDB), with the goal of it being a sports card reference (among other things). Since then, the project has continued to grow and so many of you are using it/adding information to it - thanks... So, now SCN is using that card information to solve the problems mentioned above.
This functionality is available for basic AND premium members.
Introducing the Autographed Card Wantlist Tracking:
Browse for the autographed cards you want by sport and set:
View the checklist for the set, with each card cross referenced with the signing information in the SCN database:
Track the cards you want (check off the cards you want and click the "Save to Your Wantlist" button):
The cards and sets in your autograph wantlist become part of your user profile (making buying and trading much more efficient):
All the card data is based off the sets in SportsCardDatabase. If you are interested in a set not yet available, you can go add the checklist to SCDB. If you see errors or inconsistencies between the two sites, please contact me.
We have quite a few big features in the pipeline that will compliment this new functionality. Stay tuned and please check back with SportsCollectors.Net often...
