Saying goodbye to a legacy

This Saturday there is a very special card show in the Seattle area.

For the past 21 years there has been a monthly card show at the Totem Lake Mall. However, the mall is being torn down and re-built. So this will be the final card show of what some have reported as the longest running monthly sports card show in the nation.

This card show is basically in our back yard. It is only about 5 miles from our office.

To commemorate the final show, we will be offering $10 of extra store credit for every $100 you put in your account. Simply come to the show and drop off a check, cash, or money order with Steve Hollander, and we will put 10% extra into your account.

Hope to see you there!

Manage Inventory Improvements

Now that more and more people have large inventories of cards for sale, the Manage Inventory page has been getting slower and slower.

So, I fixed it. 🙂

The page should be much faster now.

I also made the following changes for changing asking prices.

  • The “Set Price” button got renamed “Save Price”.
  • I hooked up the “Save Price” button so that you can simply hit the Enter key after typing in the asking price.
  • I added an error message if the asking price is not more than 5% of the book value.

We have had a couple people accidentally price cards very low because the decimal point was in the wrong place.

I also added a Go to page text box to help people with large inventories jump right to a page deep in their inventory.

I also made the card description hyperlink launch the card details page in a new window so that you don’t lose the context of the card for which you are setting the price while you review similar cards for sale.
