Interview with John Reichard- sportscardorganizer.com
First of all I want to thank you for taking the time to do this interview.
John: It’s my pleasure. Thank you for your interest in my website and my software program.
Q: What motivated you to start your “sportcard organizer” site?
Had you been a collector yourself?
A: I began collecting baseball cards back in 1978. In the early 1990s I began using a simple Excel spreadsheet to catalog my collection. By 1996, I wanted something more than just a spreadsheet to keep track of my collection. While I don’t have a programming background, I began to teach myself Microsoft Access, a database program. Shortly after that I created a program using Access that met my needs. But it was not until 2002 that I decided to make my program available to the public. I was showing my cousin’s husband what I had created for myself and he said that other collectors would be interested in my program. So I made some changes to the program to make it usable to the general public and started sportscardorganizer.com to sell the program. After some initial success, I made some more changes and added features, and in October 2004, I released Version 2.0. I am currently in the final stages of development for Version 3.0, which has even more features, an easier user interface, and a more professional look and feel. It should be available later this year along with a redesign of my website.
Q: The product you sell is software for the collector, how unique is your site?
A: There are obviously other software programs out there for the sports card collector. One of the reasons I am proud of my site and the program I have developed is that I believe most of the other programs out there are limited in what they can do versus what my software can do.
Q: What are some of your favorite cards and in which sports are they?
A: By the late 1990s, baseball card companies were releasing more and more sets. I used to solely collect complete sets. But it got to be too difficult and expensive to try to collect every set produced. So I turned to collecting cards of one player, Wade Boggs. I was always a fan of his, so I set out to try to get as many different cards that have been made of him. I currently have over 2,400 different cards of his. While I haven’t grown my collection of him as much lately, I would have to say that I have one of the 10 most complete Wade Boggs collections in the country.
Q: What is the rarest card you own or have come across?
A: I have 14 Wade Boggs cards that are serial numbered 1-of-1.
Thank you for answering these questions and good luck with your software program.
