Card companies take note of this post

Rate this Entry
This post of a blog is simple for all the card companies to take note. Sure I could have posted this message in time for this years National Convention I thought to wait until prior to next years but, after reading someones else problem I figured I might as well do it now while its fresh on my mind. First off I will applaude part-time member and a great person that is great with insights and judging the way he handles things in his area I hope he sees this blog and replies to me back in either a private message or next year if I see him at the National he remembers me. This person is Dr. Brian Price of In The Game. Why do I applaude him simple he and his staff he has working with him they have knowledge on everything they have made unlike some companies. This where I wish the other card companies would take note so if there is a question of a product they have someone on hand that can answer all the questions about that product and not just hire someone that has no knowledge of things prior to their hiring. Case in point I went to the National in 2011 and asked Topps during a Q&A session why they created a checklist of a product and not produced certain ones sure the product in question was 4 years old at the time and they didn't give a defined answer they did a lil sing and dance routine to avoid my question the old smoke and mirrors trick if you will that might work if I was young collector but I am not one. Another case is if you create a High-End Market Product that includes GUed Patch cards make notes on every subject that you cut up Identify the player how hard is it to create a data base on product see the sample I created maybe you could use it

Product Name:BoFleeDonToppUppeChroPlatium of 2012
Players Name: John Smith

Number of cards made from patch for product XX/10

Released Product date: June 30th 2012
Product Developer:Bob Johnson

Now with all that done I don't mind if any of the card companies would take note and if they want to hire me I wouldn't mind it. I am not the most techincal savy minded individual to work on a computer but with a data base like this might help and in the long run on it might be helpful to collectors so if there is questions on a card or cards that are being sold on ebay we can identify them as legit cards and not fakes. Thanks for reading.

    One question I would have is when it comes to redemption cards, ones that autographs end up never getting signed for would be, what do they do with the actual cards? I can't see them holding off on having them printed along with others that actually get signed in the particular set. If they do hire you, please see what you can find out about these!
