  • We have been working hard on a partnership that will provide some important new functionality and I was hoping to have it all ready by now. Hopefully it will be ready by the end of January or early February 2013.

    SCN is far and away the best resource and community in the world for Sports Autograph Collectors with nothing else even close. You guys make that happen. Take care everyone and I really appreciate everyone's continued support.
