Colnect Welcomes the New Sports Cards Catalog

A much anticipated collectible category is making it's first steps on Colnect. The Sports Cards catalog is now publicly available on Colnect.

Sports Cards are a well-established, well-known and popular collectible worldwide and for good reason. Sports are a great device to bring people together both regionally and worldwide, through the admiration of the players, their effort and talent. Collecting is also such a uniting factor, bringing people together through their appreciation of the art and effort of building and maintaining a collection. Sports Cards, therefore, are a natural powerful union and we're glad to have them on Colnect.

2013 Matthew Boyd Select Australia card, from the new Colnect Sports Cards catalog
This category holds, at it's very beginning, 6,454 Sports Cards of 5 Sports, from Seasons raging from 1910 to 2013, from a variety of Brands and including cards with Special Features. With your help that number will grow quickly. Read more on how to make the catalog larger on our Contribution Guidelines.

This category has started at the wonderful and welcome initiative of collectors on the Colnect Forums. You are welcome to read the whole process on the New Sports Cards Category forum thread.

The category will be co-coordinated by Dana Levitas [Dana-Levitas] and Graeme Kilpatrick [nzexchange]. Thank you to all those who helped us make this category come true. A special thank you is owed to [neweden], without whom the category would have never come alive.

Colnect 2013 was Fun - version 2014 is going to be so much more!

They say that the way you start a year, is the way it will be for the rest of it. If that saying has any truth to it, judging by the amount of activity and newly added improvements, it seems Colnect is getting ready for a blast of a year to come :)
Lottery Ticket "Happy New Year!"
So what did we have in this year of 2013?

This year must have gotten some good luck when we celebrated our catalogs reaching 1,111,111 collectibles, which is seven lucky numbers one. Since then almost 300,000 additional items have been published on the catalogs.

This year had many new categories joining, from Lottery Tickets to Medals, from Drink Labels to Video Games, and from a familiar game changing Functional Cards to a the sister catalog to Teabags - Tea Labels.
Drink Label "Kruger Pilsner", from the new catalog
The New Year 2014 is now expected to bring with it New Categories that were waiting in the wings to be launched. We will have the highly anticipated Sports Cards category, and also Paper Clips, Milk Cup Lids, Kids Meal Toys and Music CDs. Many more were already suggested and are sure to join in the upcoming year.

Functional Card "Happy New Year", from the new catalog
There could never be too many helpful features and additions. In everything having to do with collectors and Colnect, the more helpful tools is definitely the merrier. We've just now added some cool helpful hands to the Inventory Notes. That's not the only feature we've added though, we did much more throughout the year. We've opened up the Personal Customs lists to all, so you can put your collection any way you'd like. We parsed the seas and divided the collectibles into Continents. We've made it easy to find items through Face Value. We sped things up with Quick Filter options. We've diversified the catalogs with adding Variant support. We even put a looking glass right into the catalog and added a Zoom into the pictures.
Medal "Lottery Ticket", from the new catalog
Each collectible category is unique and has it's own specific needs. Many categories got tweaked and improved, decorated and streamlined. You can see that on the Postcards category that finally had Theme Collectors give out a sigh of relief, Phonecards that has split in two, following much debate, and Hotel Key Cards that got a cool new Aggregation Feature added to it's catalog.

Our community kept reaching new heights, we have marked the occasion of having 56789 collectors on Colnect, and had the opportunity to thank the 666 contributors on Colnect making it a better place for collectors every day.
Tea Label "1 De Beste", on the new catalog
Finally, December ended on an especially heart warming note, when the wonderful Colnect Coordinators, were able to gift Free Premium Memberships to some 100 happy collectors.
Lottery Ticket "Happy New Year!", from the new catalog
Colnect has been preparing to welcome the New Year in style and festivities. It has been an eventful December, that will undoubtedly lead to an exciting January 2014, full of new features, new categories, more options and more collecting.
