Card trading software
I was browsing through some trading lists of people thinking to myself what an inmense job trading is. How nice would it be if we had a (online) software system in which we can just add all our cards we now list here, press a magic button and have our haves / wants automatically matched with other uses generating all possible trades...

Maybe I'm just daydreaming or maybe something like this allready exists. What are the opinions here?

There is an application like this that a site uses for trading gaming cards. It works very well.

He tried to expand the service to include standard trading cards but didn't get enough usage to make it worth the effort.

This made me think of something else...is there any software or a website where one can keep track of one's collection so that, say, before a convention you could print out a list of cards you either had or were looking for...a sort of online checklist? I could have sworn this question was asked and answered here some time ago but I couldn't find anything via a search.

edit: now that I think about it, I could always just go to Jeff Allender's website and print out the relevant checklist...

OK, I don't remember the specifics on this but, back in my sportscard collecting days, I do recall that certain programs were available just to keep track of your sportcards. I think you subscribed and you would receive updates for new releases.

I think the whole thing probably didn't get very far off the ground because of the explosion of sportscard sets, parallel cards and inserts. The database became so large that it was not worth it.

It would be a smaller database for non-sport cards if anyone wanted to try it, but the updating for new sets would still have to be done. Perhaps some people have set up personal inventories, but that's not the same thing as a software program.

I noticed the other day that Artbox has a nice checklist set up for their cards. I just don't trust placing my checklist with the company that took more than a year to put up their website. Razz

Hi folks,
We use software from a company called CollectorZ

They have a package made for organizing and tracking comic books, but it works extremly well for trading cards. it is very customizable and flexible. We've used it for about 4 years now and have many thousands of cards and images in our databases with it. I have asked them several time to release a version called 'Card' collector, but alas once you get past the word "Comic" it is really nice. They're web site is Collectorz.com
Happy Collecting!
Joey

This looks interesting indeed. I don't know if they have it or if there are plans for it but the most essential thing would be the possibility to search for trades.
