MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Cooper's Art Projects

I saw a great thread on our message that I thought was worth sharing here on the site's blog. Last month a long time SCN member bobbystl posted the wonderful art projects his young son Cooper has been making and getting autographed.

he wrote:

My son Cooper wanted to cut up some of my old cards for a project. He started doing a Cardinal team cutting up all kinds of premium late 80's cards. I got the idea to send a couple of his projects out to Hall of Fame players. Cool returns so far.

I thought it was really cool that Bobby's local newspaper featured Cooper in a story:

As a parent with younger kids stuck at home during the COVID-19 isolation, I thought was an amazingly cool way to get Cooper interested in baseball and our hobby.

There are lots of great details I love:
  • how he has put a colorized hat on top of some the Hall of Fame plaques.
  • the pictures of the character nicknames (Penguin for Ron Cey, Cobra with Pirates hat for Dave Parker).
  • the colored in background on the Juan Marichal & Cecil Cooper pics.

NEW FEATURE: Track Fees with Requests & Successes

What we had was useful, but could be better!

Over the past few months, I have noticed more players requiring signing fees and I was sending out fees to more players. To this point, sometimes members would write in the comments of their request that they enclosed a fee or donation (as shown below):

This format allowed members to enter valuable information to the community, but it became inconsistent. Often folks left out this information and many times they did not include the amount of money they sent.

Enhancement - Fees with Requests

We have added a field where you can enter the fee or donation amount sent with that request: The red box in the screen below shows the new field where you can supply this information:

In addition, you can now see the new Fee column throughout the site that displays individual request details. The red box in the screen below shows the Fee Column on the page that lists all of your Requests:

Update to our Basic Membership
Sunday, June 14, 2020

Way back in 2002, we decided to launch 2 levels of membership:
  • Basic Membership - free with limited functionality including the latest successes over the past 14 days
  • Premium Subscription - gives access to all features available on SCN

    We have spent some time reviewing the behavior of our memberships, the state of the hobby, and value proposition of our subscription offering. We have decided that we will continue to offer the basic membership (that will continue to be FREE), but it will now have access to successes that were from the previous week. Let's look at an example:

    Since today is 6/14, basic members will be able to see successes between 6/1-6/7.

    If you would like to see the full success history (including the newest + older successes) and be part of the best community of sports collectors, then our yearly subscription at $14.99 is for you! It is both extremely affordable (we haven't raised the price since 2005) and it's the most comprehensive resource available for collectors. Many thousands of users are part of this community and contribute regularly.
