    Racing Supercollector

    This Ad will be removed when you a member of sportscardforum.com


    A Racing supercollector is a collector that has a passion for their type of collecting. There are two types of collectors in the racing community.

    1. An individual driver collector – this type will be determined by the size and commitment of the members collection. Your driver must have a minimum of 100 cards that have been in production. You must have 95% if not all simple base and inserts of your driver. You must have at least 75% of the available numbered cards of the individual driver; this requirement should also include some of the EBay preview cards and also a good amount of Beckett Sample cards if available to the driver. The applicant must be able to show a considerable collection of the drivers race-used and autographs with in the collection, to be able to show at least 75% of these cards are a true testament of ones passion for their driver. They should also be able to show a part of there collection that is not related to trading cards’; Die cast, press kits, post cards, and any other unique items of their driver. 1/1’s should also be an intricate part of their collections.

    2. Set collectors – Set collectors are a unique breed of collectors. There is literally millions of racing cards available all set into thousands of different sets. To be able to have the distinction of a Set Supercollector they must be able to show not only that they collect every master set but also the many of minor sets there are. Many top manufactures have produced minor sets of NASCAR. From Kraft to Craftsmen, Valvoline to Castrol, AutoZone to Holiday Inn have printed sets of drivers. These sets are going to be what determines a supercollector. To be able to claim that they have 75% or better of all race cards printed is something to brag about.

    To become a SCF Racing Supercollector we ask that you first submit your request along with documentation of all requested items above. Be ready to show scans of your Ru’d and Auto’s along with scans of your lower numbered cards, previews, reds, 1/1’s, etc. Links to your photobuckets, websites, etc are required. They must show an update to there collection every two months within their application post, this will show the additions from at least one new release, in some cases there will be two releases in this time.

    If members have been declined for this award they have the right to re-apply to each category of a supercollector once every three months. If they have applied and found to not have the requirements for a driver collector then in three months they can reapply. They could apply for a set collector in between though.

    All applicants will then be taken under review by the Racing team and General Manger of the site. All decisions of the racing team and general manager will be final.

    . Individuals determined to have the merit of sporting the accolade of supercollector will be able to show this award with a specially designed badge in their honor. Also every one honored will have their own personal thread with a history of how and why they collect. A general Q & A will be sent to every member chosen for this honor.

    Please post your application in the specified thread set up for this. Here is the link to the thread also listed as a sticky located in Around the Track forum.
