The project began from a small baseball card trading group consisting of 28 collectors spread across 21 states with the idea of finding a way to share their wants with other collectors to help find cards that are geographically hard to obtain. It expanded to include a broader audience of collections on Twitter and collectors of other sports.
Card collectors want to help each other with their card collecting needs so they can fulfill whiles within each others’ collections. A solution to the problem would be to allow collectors to share and post their wanted cards through an online web application and empower them to fill requests from other collectors.
