Default Vintage Football Community - New Board

Hi all,

First, thanks for Leon for allowing me to post this message on Net54!

------

Hi all,

I'm reaching out to fellow football collectors to make you aware of a new collectors community I'm starting. For a long time I've been thinking about starting a football only forum where hard core football collectors can congregate and share. I feel now is the time to create one.

Vintage Football Community (VFC) is a community of football card and memorabilia collectors who enjoy each others company and want to talk about the hobby in a relaxed, stress free environment. It is an invitation only community so we can talk privately about issues and challenges in our hobby while also sharing our collections. Because I want this to be a COMMUNITY in more than name only, there is a posting requirement - but I've taken a different twist on it. Each member will be required to START a thread each month in which they share knowledge about a particular set, memorabilia item, player, team, etc from their personal collection. Videos, re-purposed blogs, podcast posts / discussions, etc. will count as long as knowledge and images are shared. Other than this, you can post as often or infrequently as you wish. Attaboys, welcome messages, social discussions, current football talk, etc. are all encouraged but don't count toward the goal of sharing knowledge.

Beyond posting, I expect members to have the utmost respect for one another and will not tolerate disrespectful discussions or comments toward members. We are not children.

If you're interested in learning more, email me directly and I can answer your questions. I know some of you may not want to commit to starting a thread each month and I can respect that. But I will be sticking to my plan to require new monthly threads as each member needs to actively participate for VFC to truly be a community! No lurking is allowed, as a thriving community is one in which everyone helps make it successful. As the Amish say "many hands make light work".

Contact me at jefferyepayne@gmail.com if interested and willing to abide by our posting rule.

Best regards,

Jeff Payne

Thanks Robert! It is great to have you involved.

A few members here have expressed concern about the posting requirement so thought I'd address it for everyone.

There are a couple of reason why there is a posting requirement.

1. The football community is fairly small as compared to baseball and I feel a football board can survive and thrive only if everybody helps create content. Otherwise the board will be a ghost town and won't make it.

2. Every collector has knowledge to share ... whether they even realize it or not! My vision is a community where sharing is the norm and everybody gives as well as gets. Of course some members with lots and lots of knowledge will share more and that is perfectly fine! Come and learn as you post.

If you are interested but are concerned about the posting requirement, PM me and we can discuss what you collect and how we can make it work. I'm confident that most anyone who collects football avidly and is willing to share, won't have a problem meeting this requirements. I can help if you have difficulty posting images too!

I want to echo this. Compared to others involved at VFC, I am somewhat of a small fish. I collect mainly 1960s, though I do have my eyes on 1950s and 1970s. There are other like minded collectors there. There is also a substantial pre-war presence that I am learning from. The same can be said for modern collectors as well. There may not be as many modern collectors there yet, but there have been discussions about modern issues. I have learned from them also. There is room for all types of collectors. Get with Jeff and come check it out.

Check out The Hobby Cave and Vintage Football Cards on facebook. They are both great sites with the Cave focusing on showing off cards while Vintage Football Cards is mostly a Buy/Sell/Trade site with lots of eye candy for sale.

Good luck and glad you are going after football now!

Just bumping this thread to give everybody an update.

Vintage Football Community has grown to nearly 80 members in the past 9 months but we are looking for more! The amount of football knowledge and content is incredible and if you are totally into football card / memorabilia collecting and/or research into the early days of american football, you will absolutely love this site.

Recently I reduced the posting requirement from having to start a brand new thread each month to sharing something in your collection or something that is going on in the hobby to encourage more participation for the community.

If anybody is interested in learning more and becoming a member, PM me and I can fill you in.

jeff

Default VFC is awesome

I joined as a member of VFC a few weeks after its inception. And I was invited as I was unaware of its existence. It was a great move. My focus on football is pretty narrow these days in terms of what I collect. Principally stuff that I collected as a kid back in the 60s. But I have found the expertise and material viewed on the site is simply outstanding. So many things I did not know even existed. Amazing. And it is just not cards. There is just tons of all sorts of memorabilia that is shared. A must to consider for any football collector.

Thanks Ken! I appreciate the feedback and so happy your are a VFC member. It IS the mecca of football cards, memorabilia, research, community, etc. and I'm so excited to see where it goes.

Most definitely looking for others who just love to talk football and discuss the hobby so PM me if interested in learning more about VFC.

I'm not going to lie, I like to lurk.
I also have a very narrow focus of what I collect. SD/LA Chargers player cards. ALL players. So I have been doing a lot of research into EVERY player ever signed by the team. Not sure I have enough knowledge to share BUT, as I said, I like to lurk.

Narrow focus isn't a problem on VFC. We have plenty of collectors who are very focused. But lurking is. I call it a 'community' for a reason. Everybody pitches in and helps in a true community. For a hobby board that means everybody posts, everybody encourages others, everybody shares, everybody participates.

You don't need to do that every day but most definitely every month.

But I think the information and knowledge on VFC is worth every second you spend sharing so its all good!

More than happy to discuss more!

jeff

If anybody is remotely even thinking about joining VFC...I urge you to give it a try. It is unbelievable in the things you get to see, learn and share! No drama to boot! Give Jeff a shout if you want to get involved in the greatest football forum going!

I've got to agree with Mike, if you collect football VFC has quickly become the best place on the internet for interaction, research and networking.
