I believe that many people are often afraid to answer these tough questions on what they would do if they were in charge of www.sportscardforum.com and would shy away from them. I, on the other hand, am not afraid because I know first-hand how the staff members on Sports Card Forum work and believe that my opinions may speak for others on the website. I would like to start by saying that if you agree or disagree with these opinions, please let that be known by posting in the comments section of this blog or on the More >

I have noticed over the past 10 years or so that all card collectors talk about are the “great pulls” and how much money they got for such and such card. Card collecting has always been a form of gambling, but I’m afraid the young adults with children are missing the most important aspect of collecting, the memories. I am 63 years old and raised three sons. Every time I look through our collection I have a memory. Every time I look at my old cards from when I was a kid I return to my More >

It has happened many times in the past, and it looks to be a recurring scene almost every other NHL game that happens. The hits. Not your average, clean hit, but the nasty one, which leaves someone lying down on the ice, face first, wondering “What happened?”
Just this week, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens met for the first time ever since they got into the huge fight which involved goaltenders Carey Price and Tim Thomas. All was going well until the hit happened. Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens had just dumped the puck More >

There are two different events that have changed the way that I view card collecting. I’ll describe them both here, as they reflect on the good and the bad experiences that I’ve had.
I’ll start with the bad. To begin, I believe that most people are good and that everyone deserves a chance to be considered good unless they prove otherwise. This especially applies to kids. After graduating from college, I had the pleasure of working a few weekends a month for one of the local dealers, selling at his table at shows. He was the promoter More >

After a first half of the season that didn’t quite live up to many people’s expectations, yet was still better than most other teams, the Miami Heat have experienced a huge slide lately. This is a really terrible time for them to be having such a slump because competitiveness is rising as the playoffs near, and the players and coach Erik Spoelstra really should be on the same page by this point. They’ve had more than enough time to gel as a unit, but they’re falling apart instead of coming together when it really matters. After More >
The Naked Pass By Alan Chen aka RiceBondsMntna2Rice
“ill pass” These might be the most dreaded string of words to grace our hobby. With nary a key stroke wasted on punctuation or majuscule, this familiar refrain has kept countless sports cards enthusiasts up at night. If you’ve traded cards online long enough, you’ve become only too familiar with this frightfully flippant phrase. Benjamin Franklin once observed; “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Evidently, Mr. Franklin never traded cardboard on the internet.
Sure, the variations on this expression that populate your inbox and trade threads can More >
