What is a Collecting Club ?
Collecting Clubs are an important segment of the collectibles industry.
The combined knowledge base of their membership is usually the backbone of knowledge for your collectibles.
Many club sites have become key resources for the collectibles industry.
But what exactly do these clubs do?
- They provide information to the collector via research, study and documentation. Not only do they cover club activities, provide access to insider information, and ‘breaking news’ for your favorite collectible, but they provide a wide array of information to the collector – offering photo galleries, a history of your particular collectible, photo features of members’ collections, proper identification, and more.
- Many clubs are the industry watchdogs for ethics violations and reproductions.
- They provide information and advice to new and established members alike in the areas of managing their collections, storage and display, and convenient ways to insure your collection properly.
- Many club websites offer Forums and Discussion Groups for those having specific questions about their collections, and to share information. Chat Forums are held weekly where members can participate in real time.
- They offer networking opportunities, the ability to buy & add to your collection, as well as trading and selling your collectibles, and Annual Events. Many club sites have become key resources for the collectibles industry.
- The most important thing they offer is the establishment of personal friendships, often on a worldwide basis, with people who share the same interests, and friendships that can and do last a lifetime.
Being a member of a strong collecting club can personally make you more knowledgeable.
