Baseball Team Collectors Group

Rate this Entry
The Baseball Team Collector's Group is a group of collectors who like to collect a specific team.

Basically once a month group members send each other a lot of a minimum of 20 cards of a specific team. To keep things organized and to keep members from having to send a ton of packages out each month trade partners are assigned each month by the group coordinator. Right now that is me.

There are only 2 real requirements:
The first one is that a minimum of 20 cards of the team a member collects be sent to them. If you are sending game used or auto cards then the 20 base card minimum is waived. Meaning if you send 1 auto and 4 other cards or even no other cards you are okay. The auto must be a certified autograph (no TTM autos will count toward the waiver).

The second requirement is that trades assigned for the month MUST BE COMPLETED (or at the very least already in process) BY THE END OF THE MONTH. If a member fails to send to their trade partners in a month they will be given a second chance the following month to send to that trade partner. If they fail to do that they will be dropped from the group.

Concerning duplicates. Duplicates DO NOT count toward the 20 card minimum. If you send someone 20 cards of Joe Average's 1999 Topps Chrome card #45 then you need to send 19 more cards that are not that 1999 Topps Chrome #45.

Trade partner assignments are usually sent out near the end of the previous month (ex. February trade assignments are sent out in late January, and so on.)

The MSF rule for SCF members applies. If a member has the Must Send First restriction then they must do so for this group as well.

Only one person is assigned to a team. Members if they wish may switch to a different team, provided that team is not already taken. The switch will be effective on the next month.
