    Super Collector Criteria & Application - Player Collectors

    Welcome to the SCF Football Super Collector Hall of Fame Forums
    This Ad will be removed when you a member of sportscardforum.com



    To become a Football Super Collector Hall of Famer, you must provide the numbers and breakdown of your collection and meet the following requirements for the classification you are applying. Please apply using the application form provided at the end of this document.

    Player Collection Applications


    To apply for and reach Player Collection Super Collector status, applicants must meet all 5 requirements or 1 of the exceptions in order to be accepted. These numbers are set high for a reason.

    1st Requirement- Percentage Owned
    Based on the amount of cards produced of a given player, you must provide the amount produced along with how many you have. For example using the chart below. If I collect Steve Young, and he has 1799 cards. I need to have 50% of those cards. So I must have at least 899. You do not need to count 1/1s towards the total. They are viewed as more of a bonus.

    Quantity produced / % you must have (changed %'s)

    Your player must have 200 cards produced of him to be eligible, as players with low production runs may be too easy to obtain, for previously entered members, they are Grand-fathered in.

    200-250- 90%
    251-500 - 75%
    501-750 - 60%
    751-1000 - 50%
    1001-1500 - 45%
    1501+ - 40%

    2nd Requirement- Auto/GU Owned
    Must have at least 15% of auto/gu the player has produced.

    3rd Requirement- Rookies Owned
    Must have at least 60 rookie cards can be rookie of any level base, insert, gu, auto. In cases of a rookie having limited amounts of cards produced, we will accept exceptions on this, on a case by case basis. However if your player has a significant amount of rookies more then 60, do not expect to be given an exception.

    4th Requirement- Not too much Base Owned
    Base cards cannot be more then 60% of entire collection.

    5th Requirement- Proof
    We will need to see pictures, so please link your photobucket or website. If you are a Super Collector, we assume you would want to show your collection off! Let's see it! You should have the better portion of your Autos and Jerseys pictured at the very least. General pictures of binders or cases with base are acceptable.

    6th Requirement- Post Count
    You must have 300 posts on SCF or more to apply, those already in are exempt, but too many people are coming and posting with a handful of threads and never return.

    Exceptions
    These 5 requirements may not be entirely possible in every case, depending on your collector style. We realize everyone collects a little differently. Here are 2 exceptions to consider. If you are applying via one of the Exceptions, please explain which one and give us enough info.

    #1- Too Many Cards Produced Exception. If the player you collect has entirely too many cards produced of him, we will consider an exception. If you own 2,000+ cards of a specific player, no more then 80% cannot be base/insert, you can apply through this exception. Therefore you need at least 400 Auto, GU/Memorabilia, Rookie, 1/1. Provide info.

    #2- Too Few Cards Produced Exception. If the player you collect has been in the league for at least 5 years but had received little hobby attention and has less than the 200 cards, but more than 50, you may apply but your percentages will have to follow these guidelines: 95% for players with 51-100 cards, 90% for players with 101-199 cards.

    #3- High-End Collector Exception. If you do not collect all cards of a certain player and maybe just collect Autos or Patches of a certain player, we will allow those with a Book Value of $15,000+ (with at least 100 Cards of that Specific Player Minimum). 1/1's and no book value cards can act as $bv50, but no more. Provide info. While we do not see this as a true Super Collector by our definition, we realize everyone collects differet things for different reasons.

    Restrictions


    With all of these ways of becoming a Super Collector, we do have some restrictions before you can be accepted.

    #1- You, the member, must be in good standing with SCF. Must Send First members will have a hard time achieving this status unless you are new to the site. Stay in good standing on SCF to enjoy all the perks we have to offer.

    #2- If applying for a player collection, your player must have completed his rookie season, and 2nd season of cards must be started to be produced.



    Final Comments


    We realize these requirements are a lot, and hard to reach. We also realize everyone has different budgets to put into their card collections, as well as depending where you are in your life the amount of time you can put into a collection. We also feel that getting a list and knowing the information we are asking should be something a Super Collector should be seeking to know about their collection anyway. If you do not meet these numbers, it does not mean you aren't a great collector of that player/team/set. However, we have set these numbers to be a challenge to reach, and so that not anyone can get the title of Super Collector.

    The Sports Manager of the site and the Football team will decide on all applications.

    General posts will not be accepted, give us the information we ask for, or you will not accepted

    You may re-apply if you are denied. However, if you are denied, you are not able to re-apply until a month after you were denied. Build your collection bigger and better and come back! This is not a title we are going to be giving out, if you are denied, you are denied. Sending PM's declaring why you think you are a super collector, or simply because you have the best collector of that player you are aware of do not mean anything. Enjoy and Have Fun with this!

    Lastly, if you give incorrect numbers to the point of blatantly lying or copy images from others, you will be suspended and/or banned.


    *SCF Staff reserve the right to waive any requirements if a significant enough reason is provided to bypass any requirement. PM's welcome.

    If you feel that your collection meets all of the criteria listed here, then Please submit your application using this form: APPLICATION FORM.


    If you feel that your collection qualifies using the exemptions please use the "If you wish to add, list anything else. Here's your last chance:" field.

    Lastly, please read this SCF Article explaining what a Super Collector is. If that sounds like you, we want to see your application!

    If you have any questions, please contact myself or WVColtsfan via PM. Please do not post your applications/questions in this forum.
