News-Antique.com - Oct 04,2008 - The social network revolution has come to the sports memorabilia industry.
Sports Collectors Daily, online news source for the $1 billion sports collectibles industry, has launched a new network aimed at bringing collectors together (http://www.sportscollectorsdaily.ning.com/).
In partnership with Ning.com, the new, totally free network offers collectors the chance to join a group related to their specific collecting niche or start one of their own. There are groups for collectors of vintage sports cards and sports memorabilia, as well as those for current era sports cards and sports autographs.
Sports collecting forums are contained inside each group, enabling members to discuss pricing baseball cards, the value of signed collectibles, issues within the sports memorabilia industry, storing and displaying items or virtually anything connected to the hobby.
Sports memorabilia business leaders and other hobby-related companies are welcome to join. An 'events' section offers the opportunity for sports card show promoters to list their event free of charge.
Collectors have the opportunity to post photos of their collections or hobby rooms (man caves as some call them), share videos and chat live with other collectors.
