SCF's 10th Birthday Contest #3 - SCF is #1 Because...
On March 3, 2003, the world changed forever – Sports Card Forum was born and today we want to celebrate 10 years of being the very best hobby site on the ‘Net! We also want to say THANK YOU to our valued members who have helped pave the way to make SCF the #1 destination for collectors. The Hockey boards are some of the most engaging and active sections of the site, and so we want to offer our collectors a number of contests where they can win some fantastic card prizes!
As part of SCF’s 10th Birthday, we want to know why you think that SCF is the premier destination for online hockey card trading. Tell us what separates SCF from other sites, how it is that you came to believe that this is your online home for card trading. All you have to do is say a few nice words about SCF and you can score the following card:

SCF through the knowledge and generosity of its staff and members reminds us that we're all in this hobby together, that life isn't all about the everyday drudgery, that we can escape into the world of Jean Beliveau and Bobby Orr or Ryan Smyth and Manny Malhotra or RNH and Brendan Gallagher. That we all may be unique with different PCs, but deep down we're all the same 11 year old kid ripping open a pack of cards :)

A memeber since 2008, Started collecting back in 1989, Internet, what was that back then? For me anyways, but I stopped going to my LCS when my son was born in the year of 2000, from there in 2007, I found my Hockey collection in the attic, I went online and typed Hockey cards, and found Sports Card Forum!
So in Awe, I joined up, wow, where was this when I was collecting, I was lucky if I landed a Red Wings hit in packs at the store, Trading? Lol! best trading I can do was the Card Shows once a month here in Michigan!
From that day I joined, I have the best Red Wings PC that any Wings fan could ever have, thanks to SCF and its great members here!
Thanks SCF! Happy 10th Birthday!

I've only been collecting for a matter of months and SCF and it's members have taught me so much that some local collectors in my community think i've been doing it for years. I can't express enough how AWESOME SCF has been to me. It's staff and members have been here for me since day one. I've used just about every avenue of informational sources on SCF and not one has failed me to this day. I've never given any thought to checking out any other sports card forum and never will. THANK YOU SCF FOR ALL YOU DO !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Simply put, SCF is #1 for one reason, the mods. The community here is amazing, but that's no accident. These guys not only put their own time and energy into making this a great place to trade, they are probably the most levelheaded group of moderators on any trading site anywhere. The community is great because of the vigilance, effort and ability of the mods and they deserve full credit for SCF being the #1 trading site out there!

The community is the number one reason that makes SCF a great place. It is a great place to trade, buy and sell, but my favorite forums are the box breaks and the show and tell. I may not ever be able to bust a case of The Cup or acquire some truly high end cards, but I love living vicariously through those who share their collecting experiences. I enjoy so much seeing the cards people add to their personal collections, and get to share in the excitement when they land that whale! Keep on sharing everyone!Collecting Doug Wilson, Ron Francis, Gordie Howe, T206 Baseball Cards, and Horse Racing Cards. Teams I collect are Chicago Blackhawks, Hartford Whalers, and Chicago White Sox.Hidden Content
