    Talking SCF Writing Contest Sponsored by Dacardworld.com


    Last year, SCF held a contest in which the entrants had to write a biography of their favorite player and present some of their best cards. This year, our contest is sponsored by Dave and Adam’s Card World who have graciously accepted to provide us with a box of Donruss Gridiron Gear 2008 for the winner. To enter, you must write an article about one of the following topics:

    - How did you get into collecting? - Tell us about your humble beginnings as a collector

    - Your childhood memories about the hobby – Did you use to trade cards at recess? Was your best Christmas present a case of cards?

    - What do you like the most about collecting? – Is it the people you’ve met online, the challenge of completing sets or the chase for that untouchable white whale?

    - Show and Tell about your most prized personal collection item – You look at it every day, you love it, tell us why, when you got it and how etc…

    - Tell us about a card which is valuable to you for reasons other than monetary – Does it depict someone you know? Or perhaps someone who has had an influence on your life?

    - Your favorite card and why you like it so much – Don’t leave anything out though; when was it made? Which company produced it? When did you acquire it? What is its print run? Etc…

    - Your best experience in the hobby – Did you receive any unexpected gift in the post? Did you ever get to meet your favorite athlete and get their autograph? Did you attend a card show that was special to you?

    I will definitely enter this contest.... I'm going to college for journalism and switching my major to it. So this would be great practice and i just have to see what to write about.

    Plus it can go to my blog and hopefully get more followers.
