What's some of the most useful information for collectors? Simple - checklists!

Until now, collectors found themselves searching across a number of web sites in order to track down trading card checklists. Some of this data is available free of charge while some sites only make this data available once you purchase other data such as price guides.

Well, this all just changed! Jim (jrlenox) and I are pleased to introduce OpenChecklist.com!

So, what exactly is the purpose of OpenChecklist.com? It is a database and Internet-based tool for holding trading card checklist, want list and inventory data so that it can be shared with collectors around the globe.

Here's our mission statement:

"Our mission is to create and maintain a master database of up-to-date and accurate trading card data. To support this mission, we will develop industry standards for the communication and transfer of trading card and set data over the Internet. Using these standards, we will further develop and support the development of applications to support the hobby and trading card collectors.

To further encourage the collecting of trading cards, our commitment is to provide free access to the trading card database for all collectors and at all time."

Can you imagine the online collecting tools that would benefit from such a massive database of checklists? Well, we have! Here are some of the tools that are now available:

Checklist Browser/Search - provides the ability to browse and perform simple searches on data for all types of trading cards.

Collector Profile - allows a collector to register and list their personal collecting interests. Search for other collectors by region or area of interest.

Collector Want List - allows a collector to take any checklist item and add it to their "Want List" which appears on their main collector page and can be linked to from anywhere.

Collector Inventory - a simple inventory system that shows cards you have available to trade or sell.

In addition, initial versions of these tools are also available:

Automated Trade Manager - matches cards between the Want Lists and Inventory of all registered users.

Collector Feedback System - a "one-stop shop" to list your accounts and feedback with other online auction and trading sites so you can take your trading credibility with you. Linked with your Profile, Want List and Inventory and the Automated Trade Manager, this will quickly become the most powerful trading tool on the Internet.

OpenChecklist.com is a major project that has been planned and worked on throughout most of 2005. At this time, we are providing TCC Collector Zone members with a "sneak peak" prior to our official launch next month. We simply ask you to please visit the site, register and provide feedback.

If you're ready to see what this is all about, then please visit:


In addition, please be sure to check out our all-new OpenChecklist sub-forums including:

OpenChecklist - Home for OpenChecklist members.

Checklists - Discussion of all issues related to trading card checklists.

Tools and Services - Discussion of all tools and services powered by OpenChecklist.

Feedback and Suggestions - Provide feedback and make suggestions about OpenChecklist.

Have fun!


Please note that we are currently working daily to update our extensive database of over 1.29 million trading cards. In fact, expect new checklists and functionality to be added throughout 2006. Also, look for future announcements about new TCC features that will be powered by OpenChecklist!
