WE'RE DOING SOMETHING NEW AND WE WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF IT!
Competitive Card Collecting marries together several skills and passions. The ability to correctly predict the short and long term successes of athletes from various sports.
The ability to recognize an undervalued item within a store or marketplace. The timing to acquire the item before its value increases and hold it for the maximum time possible and moving it before its value decreases.
We see Competitive Card Collecting as a mix between Fantasy Sports, Stock Market Trading, Thinking and acting like an Entrepreneur, Sports Gambling and Golf. Why Golf? The others make sense. Golf is a game in which you can play by yourself, competing against your previous progress - and/or compete directly against others. Competitive Card Collecting is exactly the same way.
As such, NoOffseason.com is introducing the concept of Competitive Card Collecting and conceiving the first ever Competitive Card Collecting League. The Competitive Card Collecting League will officially launch on January 1, 2022.
The remainder of 2021 will be spent building a community of people like you, who are interested in constructing and forming the league, it's structure, scoring system, and results.
If you'd like to be part of building the Competitive Card Collecting League as an official associate, please fill out the form on this page and we'll contact you.
OUR INITIAL CONCEPT
Each calendar year starting in 2022, participants in the Competitive Card Collecting League can submit a "line-up" of 15 total cards that count towards the official scoring results.
15 Submissions must be made between January 1 and March 30 of each calendar year.
Then, they lock in. This is considered "the research and draft period."
The remaining 9 months of the year are the "live scoring period," which include the final results published on December 31 of each year.
The scoring system is currently being built, and we want and need your feedback, but essentially it is going to be based around the initial price you purchased a card for, and it's increase in value since you purchased it.
We envision locking in the top value at which the card sold for on eBay during the calendar year.
For example, if you purchase a Zion Williamson Panini Adrenalyn Ungraded Rookie Card in March for $15, and on December 31 of that year, the highest it sold for is $55, you'd get points in the Competitive Card Collecting League based on that increase.
This, plus your other 14 submissions would result in your final score against the rest of the field.
In addition to feedback on the scoring system, we need help on the following:
- How to ensure competitors actually buy and own the cards they submit
- How to ensure competitors don't buy their own cards for better standing in the game
- Any other thoughts on how to make this fun and exciting
Why are we doing this?
We're just dudes in our 40s that love sports and collecting sports cards. We also love competition and know that raising the stakes a bit always makes things more exciting.
We also want to build a community; and we want you to be a part of it.
