This week we have our question of the day that wonders if people actually collect sets anymore. I ask because 2010 Topps Football came out recently and its a type of product that leads to set building. The responses are read at the end of the show and a lucky fan forum member even wins a free pack of football cards.
We actually opened a box of this for a contest we had at the begining on the month where over 30 fan forum members each got a pack of cards. The cards are nice – you only get 1 ‘hit’ in a hobby box, however you get Gridiron Code Give-A-Way cards where you have a chance at many Topps Cards from the past. One of our members redeemed his code for a 1950’s era Topps Football Card!! Pretty Cool! Similiar design and feel to the 2010 Topps Series 1 and Series 2 Baseball + Gridiron Code Giveaway is a nice addition to the product.
Check out the press release over at Card Corner Club about a new place to sell cards. Its interesting – seems like they only charge you if the item sells so it might be a good option for sellers and buyers. Probably worth checking out if you a serious collector looking for more outlets to buy and sell cards.
Schwab.com – If you want one of the best deals in investing – this has to be one. I even told this to a friend of mine that owns his own brokerage account (in a foreign country) and he was impressed. Basically you can sign up for a Free Checking account, which is pretty cool because you get an ATM card that they refund all ATM charges you rack up during the month – I got over $15 back last month! 🙂 You also get a free brokerage account where you can trade Schwab owned ETF’s (I’ve purchased SCHB & SCHG) with NO COMMISSION!! That’s right no fee to trade buying or selling. Pretty cool. No minimum investment or balance, no hidden charges, checking account pays intrests, free checks, ATM Fees given back – this is the best deal in banking.
Google’s new priority Inbox is actually pretty cool! Its a step to make that one of the best e-mail programs available. I think its now better than Yahoo by a longer margin – but Outlook is still a great product from Microsoft … I just don’t use it.
Question Of The Day: Have you ever tried to complete a ‘set’ of cards (either insert, parallel, base..ect) If you have – give us some examples – If not – why?
