Happy Birthday! – Sports Card Info Celebrates 5 Years

Photobucket

Five years ago today I founded Sports Card Info.  At the time sports card blogs were in their infancy with only a few that had been around for an established amount of time.  It all began when eBay allowed users to create guides for other collectors.  How To Spot Fake Sports Cards That Are For Sale was the first guide I put together and it took off.  Eventually I stopped writing eBay Guides and started up my own blog – Sports Card Info over on Blogger.  After five months on Blogger, they locked me out of my own blog because they deemed it as spam.  That’s when I moved Sports Card Info over to WordPress.  Its been here ever since.

Within the last five years, Sports Card Info has obtained sponsors from Dave & Adam’s Card World, Orange County Sports Cards, Atlanta Sports Cards, Lil’ Teammates, Bleacher Creatures, OYO Sportstoys, In The Game, Panini, and Press Pass.  In fact, Press Pass sent over the first product Sports Card Info ever reviewed – 2009 Element Racing.  All of these sponsors help keep Sports Card Info going.  I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a lot of products and using many of the “hits” in weekly contests.

By far one of the coolest things to happen was having OYO Sportstoys turn Sports Card Info into it’s very own collectible minifigure.  When Sports Card Info began back in 2007 I never expected something like that would happen.  Maybe someday it will get it’s very own baseball card.  Weirder things have been put into packs.  But nothing can really compare to the steady stream of products I get to review and use for contests.  If it weren’t for all the daily viewers, Sports Card Info probably wouldn’t exist.

Lets hope the next five years are just as successful.  I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people since starting this blog.  Thanks for checking out Sports Card Info!!!

  3. Congrats on 5 years! It’s a great milestone as so many sports blogs have come and gone. Your weekley contests are also a testament to your generosity considering that you pay for shipping when you send them to the winners. Keep up the great work, and here’s to continued success!
