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

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.

Thanks Marc! VFC is really rolling after 15 months and I couldn't be happier with the amount of interaction and content on the site. We are averaging around 60 new threads started each month so lots of interesting topics and information is showing up every day.

Just a great bunch of football collectors focused on the hobby while being respectful of each other.

Lots of great stuff going on on VFC.

Vintage Football Community (VFC) just passed its 2 1/2 year anniversary and we are going strong with close to 125 members who talk football cards and memorabilia all day long. Do lots of fun stuff as well like secret santa, fantasy football, super bowl pools, playoff predictions, football quizzes, member get togethers (when COVID allows!), etc.

Bumping this thread to see if anyone new to Net54 is a hard core football hobbyist that would like more info on joining VFC as it is a private board. If so, PM me and I can give you the specifics or look at earlier posts in this thread for our general rules.

Hi Jeff:
Great idea. I would like to join but I have a problem scanning - don't have the capability to do so. If that is a requsite I guess I am left out. I have a lot of FB that me and my son could contribute but... What do you think ?
Thanks and take care.

I collected a little bit of everything growing up, when I was first introduced to cards. Eventually, I settled on baseball predominately, like many. Not ever sure why. My interest in the games were mostly through the cards anyway. I would catch games here and there in baseball, football and basketball. Can't say I have ever watched a hockey game from start to finish.

Ebay made collecting easier in many regards, but harder in some. Budget minded collectors have so much to choose from, but in the end, only so much to spend. Unlike a shop, where I might look through all the cases, I don't find my self actively seeking out most non-baseball items, but I do have a deeper interest in the oddball, especially local team stuff from when I was a kid (Seahawks, Sonics, Mariners). Things like 7up cards, Team issued fan mail postcards, Nalley boxes, Fred Meyer photos, B&W 5x7 and 8x10 early team issued player photos). Sometimes something will just catch my eye and I will want it. Some of the stuff off the top of my head outside of the Seahawks that i really enjoy with football are vintage cards signed (70s -80s are where I know the most about the players), Hi-C posters, vintage Raiders & Vikings, Slim Jim Discs, Sugar Daddy cards.

I would probably enjoy seeing threads and images, but not sure I would have much to share. Most of my football pick-ups these days are fairly few and far between. I should focus more on the signatures though, to catch up with baseball!

Thanks and take care.

Hi Sealmark,

Do you have a cellphone with a camera? VFC supports taking photos and uploading them onto the site right from your phone if that helps. I tried to find some forum software to use for VFC that would make posting pictures as easy as possible.

Can't say I have ever watched a hockey game from start to finish.

Ebay made collecting easier in many regards, but harder in some. Budget minded collectors have so much to choose from, but in the end, only so much to spend. Unlike a shop, where I might look through all the cases, I don't find my self actively seeking out most non-baseball items, but I do have a deeper interest in the oddball, especially local team stuff from when I was a kid (Seahawks, Sonics, Mariners). Things like 7up cards, Team issued fan mail postcards, Nalley boxes, Fred Meyer photos, B&W 5x7 and 8x10 early team issued player photos). Sometimes something will just catch my eye and I will want it. Some of the stuff off the top of my head outside of the Seahawks that i really enjoy with football are vintage cards signed (70s -80s are where I know the most about the players), Hi-C posters, vintage Raiders & Vikings, Slim Jim Discs, Sugar Daddy cards.

I would probably enjoy seeing threads and images, but not sure I would have much to share. Most of my football pick-ups these days are fairly few and far between. I should focus more on the signatures though, to catch up with baseball!
Great info, Curt, and sounds like you have some great stuff and would have plenty to share. We don't just share new pickups but talk about lots of sets, players, teams, leagues, etc from all eras so your current items would fit right in.

For any collectors that are think of joining you’d be joining a great bunch of guys with a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend it if you’re into vintage or just a football collector.

Thanks Joe! Yes, looking for more hobbyists who enjoy the football aspects of the hobby. Whether its cards, memorabilia, etc. its all good and welcome. Also all eras. Interesting in including those who do research into football history or blog on football or do anything interesting in the football hobby.

We are building a great group of hobbyists who love to talk all things football and hope some more from Net54 will join.
