Happy 21st Birthday for SCN

21 years Last week marked the 21st Anniversary from when I publicly launched SportsCollectors.net allowing collectors to join. It's been a pretty wild ride and I thought I would celebrate a little bit on the site's blog.

21 years is a long time and lot has happened to me personally:

  • I learned to program and build things
  • I met my AWESOME wife and got married
  • Welcomed my daughter and son
  • Changed day jobs and moved homes more than a few times
  • Red Sox won 4 World Series, Pats won 6 Super Bowls, Bruins won in 2011
  • My collection has grown and improved. A LOT!!!


  • I'd like to thank everyone who has been along with me for the ride. I am continually amazed how many folks that joined that first year are still regular contributors and such a big part of our community. Also, by how often many of you proactively reach out to help and do nice things for other collectors. Through SCN, many of you have become my personal friends and have brought me such enjoyment sharing your passion for collecting.


    Here's a silly graphic I made with some highlights along the site's progression:

    NEW FEATURE: Filtering & Sorting for Signings
    Friday, March 5, 2021

    Comments: 1

    Over the past 6 months, we pretty much always have hundreds of Upcoming Signings on SportsCollectors.net. So we have been interested in continually making this area better for collectors and promoters

    SCN member Goofy2 suggested on our message board:

    when new private signings are added under the specific sport, it would be nice if say that the list of signings can be sorted by date so we know the newest ones. Right now, they're sorted by last name, but it would be great if the newest ones would be at the top

    While we already offered the ability to sort all of the upcoming signings by date, we wanted to make easier for members to find and to allow them to the filter the list.

    Enhancement - Filtering by Sport & Team + Easier Sorting

    On our Signings page, you now will see 2 dropdown lists (shown in the screen below):
    1. "Filter by" where you can select a Sport
    2. "Sort By" where you can sort the list by Signing Date, Player's Last Name, Promoter's username, or the Date, Newest Signings posted

    signing_filter

    Once you filter by Sport, you then will see an option to filter by a team:

    NEW FEATURE: Signing Icons

    Private signings continue to grow in popularity on SportsCollectors.net, so we want to help members not miss out on signings they would be interested in

    SCN member wlbolton made a good suggestion on our message board:

    So I from time to time will go over my want lists (player and set) and poke around to see if there are any recent successes from those players. Is it possible to build something that will put like a notification box that shows an upcoming signing coming up for that player?

    [b]Enhancement - New Icon[/b]

    Today we introduced a new icon in various areas of the site:
    icon_Signing Denotes there is an upcoming Paid/Private Signing. You can click on the SIGNING icon next to their name to see details.

    Here are some example screens where you will see the icons:

    Player Search screen:
    signing_icon_search

    Card Set detail screen:
    signing_icon_set
