The Cardboard Connection Announces Acquisition of Popular Sports Card Forum

The Cardboard Connection is happy to announce the acquisition of one of the web's most popular sports card forums, Card Collectors World. The site, which officially changed hands last week, has been migrated to the domain and rebranded as The Cardboard Connection Card Collectors World.

Countless fans of The Cardboard Connection have requested the addition of a forum over the last year. I originally had no intention of starting a forum, but changed my mind about halfway through this year's National Convention due to the overwhelming amount of feedback I received from readers who wanted the site to add a forum. I can't think of a better foundation on which to build our online community then Card Collectors World - who have in two short years built one of the most highly regarded forums in the industry.

We encourage all of our readers to go and sign up for the site's new forum at This weekend we will announce the first of many forum-exclusive wax box giveaways to kick things off.

We are already in the process of redesigning and improving the functionality based on member feedback, so expect lots of new improvements to the forum in the coming weeks and months. You can check it out for yourself by going to the forum's new homepage located at

Thanks to all our readers for making this possible, as without you there would be no Cardboard Connection.

Mike Smeth is the CEO and Founder of The Cardboard Connection. After collecting baseball cards as a child, he took a 12-year hiatus from the hobby. One muggy summer day in 2006 he unexpectedly came across his childhood card collection while packing up for a move. He began sorting through them so he could sell them on Craigslist. Somewhere between the 3rd and 4th box, he rediscovered his passion for collecting and hasn't looked back since. You can find Mike on Google+ and Twitter @mikesmethcc.
