Month: August 2014
We are now on Instagram! Follow for another chance to win!
Apparently there’s this thing called “Instagram,” and it’s kinda a big deal. Forgive us for being late to the party, but we’ve kinda been swamped with the whole “invent-a-photo-management-site-for-collectors” thing. We are now on board, and to celebrate, we are giving away some beautiful cards from 2014 Panini Rookies & Stars Football and 2014 Panini Elite Football.
All you have to do is follow us on Instagram and post a comment on our first photo (shown below) to enter. That means we have THREE giveaways going on today…we will do a video and post it to the blog tomorrow with the winners of all three giveaways. Link to our Instagram: CLICK HERE
New “Bulk” IMG-Code Feature and Giveaway!
Good afternoon, fellow collectors!
I am excited to share an incredible new feature that is guaranteed to make your life as a collector easier! Whether you are sharing your personal collection on the Beckett forums or trying to sell some cards on the Blowout forums, anyone who collects online understands how cumbersome it can be to copy and paste dozens of “IMG-Codes” into your thread. Our super-simple new tool allows collectors to grab countless “IMG-Codes” all at once.
To celebrate this new feature, we are going to giveaway up to $150 in gift cards to your favorite retailer (online or LCS.) Here are the rules:
Post a thread in any forum using the new bulk-img tool to embed the images. Email us, tweet us, or FB us the link to your forum thread. One person, chosen at random, will win a $50 gift card to their online retailer or card shop of choice (assuming that company sells gift cards.) If we get more than 50 entries we will give away two extra $50 gift cards (three $50 gift cards total.)
NOT SO FINE PRINT: You can only post one thread per forum category, but each person is allowed to submit a maximum of three (3) entries. For example, you could submit two entries if you used the bulk-IMG-code tool to embed images in the Football forum as well as the Baseball forum. Or the Football B/S/T forum as well as the Football “box breaks” forum. If you’re not sure what this means, ask. Threads must include at least ten images to count towards this giveaway. Contest ends Monday, August 18th, after the Cleveland v. Washington NFL Preseason game.
Watch a video demonstration of this new tool below:
Without a doubt, it is the community that makes Sports Card Album what it is and we thank you for all of your support.
Collector Issues: Misleading eBay Titles
Every Friday we will post a collecting-related comic to the blog for your enjoyment. I’ve kept a list of a bunch of things I love about collecting and a bunch of things that really frustrate me as a collector. Peter Griffin’s “Grinds My Gears” segment seemed like the perfect way to vent my frustrations. Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to the Sports Card Album Blog!
We finally have a blog!!! This may not sound like a big deal to you, but I have been wanting a Sports Card Album blog for a really long time, mainly so we can share all the new features and updates we are doing on the website (and apps.) We have been mentioning our progress via traditional social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook, but relying solely on those to get the word out is pretty dumb for a couple of reasons:
- Not everyone is on Twitter & Facebook
- The people that are on Twitter & Facebook aren’t online 24 hrs a day
- It is virtually impossible for people to search through all our old tweets to see if/when we announced something (hard to see archives)
This blog is the solution to all of these dilemmas and a whole lot more. This blog will provide us with a better platform for our giveaways, it will allow us to bring you special (unique) content, and will allow us to share our thoughts (and progress) with you in a way that is easy to navigate and search.
We encourage you to sign up for our mailing list (in the right sidebar) so you are notified when we launch our updates. We look forward to sharing a lot more with you in the days to come and thanks for all of your support!
In the meantime, let’s kickoff the blog with a giveaway…simply comment below and you’ll be entered to win one of two SCA prize packs!
