Football cards forum is approaching it's 3rd birthday and we have a nice online community of collectors both young and old from all over the world.

Has being a member of this forum (or any other football card collecting forum) had an effect on your collecting hobby? If so let us know.

For instance.....

Has the trading helped you complete your sets?
Has what could have been the latest collecting 'fad' (quickly forgotten!) become a more longer term passion?
Do you feel part of a community at all or is this just a place to pop into get the latest info and dissapear again?
Are you spending more since being a member on your collecting than before you were a member?
Are you more likely to complete a collection after finding FCF than before?
Is it important to feel like you are in a wider community of collectors?

Let us know your experiences and how being a member has effected you or not!


It would be greatly appreciated if you could find a couple of minutes to complete the poll at the top of the thread, your answers could really help the long term success of the forum.

Probably one of the most important is finding out new sets. I have never heard of 'Futera' before or 'Jersey Cards'. Thanks to the forum I have, and I know are quite rare!

Also valuations, I am really dopey at valuations and always scan your and check if it as the card I want and value.

I <3 FCF!

Its definitely made me a better collector. I wouldnt have gotten any of the rare cards I have if it wasnt for the forum. I think it made me want to finish the set because I can share that experience with other collectors then. It is definitely a community, you can talk to anyone and we all have our own opinions to share..
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FCF! :)

FCF has massively effected my collecting hobby. Before I found the forum I collected all the Shoot Out and first couple of MA series. I managed to find out about the LE's through a person I bought off on ebay but wasn't really aware of events etc.

By using the forum I have managed to complete many trades for my MA collections as well as learning about many other card collections that I might not normally have known about. Through finding out about new collections I have massively expanded my areas of collecting and even ventured into individual player collections, trying to find every card/sticker released worldwide for the players I have chosen.

Card collecting has now turned into my main hobby and I can put that down to FCF, knowing that anything I need to learn about collections released I can find right here. This is all down to the contributions made by the helpful members on here - without people posting information the forum wouldn't exist. I am in touch with some great, friendly people who all have the same passion for football and collecting as me and that makes the hobby even more enjoyable.

I think we should all be grateful to Tollyman for creating this fantastic place to talk and trade and to the other mods who put a lot of hard work into making the forum a success.

FCF has helped me more than I could imagine...

-I have completed sets that I thought I'd never see completed
-I have gathered a whole array of foreign cards which I once had no knowledge about
-With the help of the fantastic community, I am now able to keep one step ahead and I am able to know what to get and where to get it.
-I have managed to get a LOT of help via trading and helping to build up my sets
-I have saved money as well. Instead of forking out about 100 quid a year to complete the set, I can now just buy a box and a half and will be able to complete it from there.
-I am also more able to decide whether or not I should collect sets or not with help from those who already do.
-I do also take more care now with swaps. Whereas before they would be on big piles on my desk, they are now safely tucked away in binders.

I do not visit the site very often. Most of the discussions are about newer cards and it seems driven by certain sponsored companies.

I prefer to collect vintage cards and trade with collectors. Most of the new cards here I can buy for lower prices or get free on the internet. I like the history of older cards - not interested in the "gaming" of newer sets.

I think this site is good for youngsters (age 5 to 10)

Sure no doubt. :D

I read this site maybe 4 times a year, and when I tried to complete the survey, none of them applied, but I couldn't choose a "none of the above" option...

Similar to Copa7 in a way. The forum is mostly about Match Attax and there is little hope of completing the older collections I am trying to finish (1970's-1990's) because a lot of people on here simply weren't born.

However, there is no better resource for completing the newer series than this forum. I wouldn't have completed Adrenalyn BBVA 10/11 without the help of many people on here and getting all the limited editions would cost a heck of a lot of money without some great people to trade with along the way.

It's always brilliant when you can trade with people from lots of different countries and start to collect their local collections too. I don't know anywhere else where you could just as easily trade with people in Australia, Romania & Spain as you could with someone who only lives an hour away and still have a hassle free trade. This is where the forum is above and beyond the rest.

FCF is a great card collecting website. I have completed Match Attax 10/11 thanks to FCF and it is a very helpful site. FCF is a great site and it is probably the site I most go on when i'm on the internet.
I hope FCF grows bigger (but not too big!) and has more kind and friendly members joining the site.

I feel very relaxed when I come on FCF because it is a very welcoming site and as I have said it has helped me complete sets through nice and kind members.

Thanks FCF :cheers

You guys crack me up! :clap

For Tollyman's feedback - this forum has been amazing for me. I've gotten to know so many awesome people through it, and got myself so many cards I didn't think I stood a chance of getting otherwise. I wasn't really interested in the Match Attax collection, Futera etc before I joined (in fact, I only collected Liverpool cards/stickers previously), but the enthusiasm on here is infectious - it was a bit of a passion before, now it's an obsession!
