The Upper Deck Awards: Nominate Your Favorites Now!
Posted On 23 Mar 2010 / 2 Comments
When we started UpperDeckBlog.com about a year ago, a big motivating factor was to get involved with the passionate online communities that are dedicated to the hobby. Whether it's opinionated blogs, forum communities or box breaks (a great concept that has been around for years), there are so many ways for collectors to get involved, and make their hobby into a shared experience. We've been fortunate enough to bring some of the top hobby bloggers on board here to do features for us, but we also monitor forums, blogs and box breaks closely, so that we always have the pulse of our customers. It's something we take a lot of pride in, and we were happy to see Voice of the Collector rank us #1 in the industry for social media last year.
To recognize the best of the hobby community, we officially launched the Upper Deck Awards yesterday. In case you missed it, here are the basic details:
