A while back, I had the idea of putting together a promotional video for TCC that would be uploaded to video hosting websites like YouTube and Vimeo. For reasons beyond my control, the most progress I made in that project was accumulating photo submissions.

Since members have expressed concerns for how activity has dropped, how about we exercise our creative juices in an attempt to rejuvenate the hobby?

The contest can be broken down in multiple ways, but the main focus is to look at the hobby in a positive light.

Some Topics:

1. Why join TradingCardCentral.com?

2. Hobby Tips
----- Proper Storage and Care
----- Proper Shipping
----- Precautions When Buying/Selling Online
----- Organizing and Keeping Track of Your Collection

3. "Trail Mix"
----- A Collection of Iconic Cards
----- Card Designs: The Good and The Bad
----- A Collection of Cards with an Interesting or Funny Graphic
----- Great Cards of the Greatest Draft Busts
----- Through the Years (A look at a brand from its inaugural year to present)

Some Mediums:

1. Videos
2. Songs
3. PowerPoint Presentations
4. Graphic Design
5. Updated Blog

Of course, these are just a few of the many possibilities.

The entries will be primarily judged on relevance, content, innovation and appeal.

I would like to create a contest that absolutely every member that has 5-10 minutes of spare time can join. So here it does.



Over the years, I'm sure many of us sports fans have met players in person for autographs, etc. So this contest is super simple. Describe your most memorable experience of meeting a player in person. What player did you meet? When/where did you meet them? Was the experience good or bad? What made it memorable?

Now, I know there may be some members of this forum that have never met a player in person. If that is the case, what player would you like to meet and why?

Your answer can be a few sentences or a full page. It doesn't matter. The point of this contest is to share your stories with others and for everyone to be included if they wish to be.

The winner will be chosen via random.org. This will give everybody a fair chance of winning no matter how good your stories and/or writing skills are. This will also allow everybody to have fun and not be worried about having the best entry.



Thank you so much for the contest Richard and Shawn!!


Bring me your Stan Musial and St. Louis Cardinals!!

rtsjr had two submissions, I went with the first as
his entry due to fairness to the other contestants.

Pretty sad turn out here, folks. I'd really like to keep this
thread going but with participation at this level, my
interest is rather limited.

Shawn (sasports) and I will dialogue and
announce a winner sometime tomorrow evening.

He is seven hours ahead of us so communication
can be sporadic.

Thanks to the nine contestants.

While we work out the details of the winner.....I have a little somthing to say.


WHY?

Let me explain:

Who has seen "Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid". Great movie! Anways, to recap the movie, there are some GINORMOUS Snakes that eat people whole because of the Blood Orchid being a "fountain of youth".

Well YOU, the members of TCC, are this snakes blood orchid! If you want the snake to keep slithering, you will have to participate more! Richard and I are racking our brains trying to come up with something that will increase participation but it isn't working! I mean, come on, Really? HE GAVE AWAY A ROGER HORNSBY!

We need more participation! Start telling your friends! I mean, who dosent like free stuff! ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS POST SOMTHING! Its not that hard! Lets get off our fourth point of Contact (look it up for you youngsters that dont know what that is) and get this site back running full force!

This "Snake" thread and TCC depends on you!

It's so sad that this thread isn't more lively. I remember a couple of years ago this was the biggest thread on the whole site.

I hope we can somehow restore its glory!

After some back and forth on the contest
ideas, Shawn and I came to this conclusion . . .

These were the two that stood out.

cbware88

sportscollectoroz

Due to the ease for all members to get
involved, we chose cbware88's contest
idea as the winner.

Thanks to all of you that did take the time
and effort to send entries. We appreciate

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I will be coming home soon (VERY SOON). When I get back to the states, I plan on starting up the Donation Drive again!

For those of you who are too lazy to read back through all 306 pages ( laugh.gif ) this is what I mean. Richard and I accept donations of your Autos, Game Used, Serial Numbered, and Rookies and we host several smaller contests using them as prizes. Meanwhile, we have a MONSTER contest going that takes some time and give away somthing nice! I am thinking somthing along the lines of an unopened box? ohmy.gif

So start putting your stuff together that you want to dontate and once I return I will start accepting them. Richard will be sitting on the sidelines for this one as he ALWAYS puts way more into this than I do!

Its my turn now! biggrin.gif

Shawn,

That sounds cool. I've got some GUs and maybe some other stuff I can donate to the cause.
