A Thank You To The Fletcher Group

Most of you have probably noticed the new SCU logo on the side to replace my little south park guy. As much as I love angry Gellman, it wasnt conducive to use outside of the blog. Matt Lange, a long time reader, approached me a few weeks ago and asked if he could do some work on the site to build a portfolio for his new job as creative director for the Fletcher Group. Of course I approved, and gave him some guidelines for what I needed.

The new “SCU Sleeve Patch” is absolutely awesome and should look great as the logo of the site. Thank you to both Matt and Amanda, they are truly a great design firm.
Here is a blurb from her about the company:

The Fletcher Group is a full service advertising agency located in Monroe, LA. We are proficient in producing for Radio, TV, Print, Motion and Still, everything under the sun. We have the title of “full service ad agency” but I feel as though we are like no other agency around. Let me tell you a little of how this place got started, and where we are headed.

A while back my friend and mentor Lee Fletcher started this agency. He was a huge political buff, wanted to base things off of political campaigns. Money was good, the firm’s name was getting out there, and it got to be where this place was the ‘go to’ place for your political consulting. Lee sadly passed away this past year after a battle with cancer, and it was up to us to continue his legacy. Since I had been in charge during his absence, Lee left the business in my stead. Although Lee is no longer with us, I adopted his goal to make our company the best on the planet.


After taking over, I invited my friend Matt Lange to come rock out as Creative Director. Matt previously served a year as the Creative Director for The Fletcher Group, winning multiple ADDY awards for television. Now he is back with authority. With Matt returning to The Fletcher Group, our spectrum of work has drastically changed as we branch out into many genres of marketing. A bulk of those new avenues are in the sports arena, where we are very proud to have Adam and the SCU be a part of. Needless to say, making our break into sports designs, and commercial sports photography, is definitely where it’s at.

Matt and I have the bases loaded, and we’re just hitting grand slams left and right. Not only are we doing it well, we want to do it for you. Thanks!

My Obligatory Year In Review

2009 was a pretty epic year for me, with good times had by all around me. Although there were some hard times in terms of the economy, in my personal life, things could not have been better. Although I hate doing posts like this, I feel that this year was a good enough adventure to put it in the blog just this once.

It all started with an explosion of awesome, as in the beginning of 2009 I had just gotten married, gotten promoted, and the blog and my collection were hitting their strides. The blog started 2009 at around 300 visits a day, and within weeks of the new year I was seeing record numbers at the site, and many people in the industry were even starting to take notice. In March, I had the first anniversary of the creation of SCU, and at that point I felt a keen sense of accomplishment knowing that I had kept it going for so long. I never expected it to go very far, and to have one year under my belt was crazy. I also started doing the blog bat arounds, which was meant to be a way to showcase the expansion of the card blogger network. Each time they happened, I found myself continually impressed with my collegues and their skills as bloggers. I think that due to the talents displayed on our sites, the card blogs have become just as much of a news source, if not more, for the informed collector base out there. Due to that fact, other sources have tried to keep up, and mostly failed in the process.

SCU Breaks also hit a chord this year with most of the people who participated, and the pulls we had were nothing short of fantastic. There was never any manufacturer involvement, just straight box breaks bought from the same places that everyone buys from. The highlight was probably the 2 box Prime Cuts break we did, with a Jim Thorpe/Joe Jackson pull and a ridiculous Cal Ripken Jr. pull. The recent 2009 Limited Football break was also amazing, netting us a low numbered Matt Ryan auto, a low numbered Percy Harvin auto, and a coveted Limited Letter auto as well. We also broke a few boxes of Upper Deck Exquisite (which we will do again), which were highlighted by a Chris Johnson Patch Auto, and a Walter Payton patch card.

Holy Hitter also organized the first monthly box breaking club, breaking everything from SP Authentic to National Treasures. One box pulled a Bob Waterfield cut auto, as well as a four color Trent Edwards patch auto, so you can see what I mean when I say that you should not pass up any of these opportunities in the future. He also managed an awesome Peyton Manning auto for the group as well as a sweet Bo Jackson, and a cut of Clyde “Bulldog” Turner and Sammy Baugh.

As for my Personal Pulls, I did pretty well. I had some luck with packs in the recent months, and the Mohammed Massaquoi red refractor auto I got out of 2009 Bowman Chrome was probably the best I had all year. The other cards in contention were the triple auto I pulled out of SPX or the Shadow Box auto of Chris Johnson that is on eBay as we speak.
Now that its December 31st and I am looking back, I definitely had fun in 2009. My favorite products of the year were either 2008 SP Authentic or 2008 Exquisite, as expected, although 2009 Topps Chrome was surprisingly wonderful. My least favorites, also as expected, were 2009 Triple Threads and many of the Panini releases this year, as the stale and sometimes outrageously awful designs and horrible concepts really got me fired up on numerous occasions.
We also saw some favorites of the card blogger network hang it up, and I still miss reading their view points day in and day out. One was obviously Mario’s recent goodbye at Wax Heaven, but also Dave’s departure at fielder’s choice. Both were big supporters of this site, and I always love seeing comments from both sporadically now.
My battles with Beckett continued this year as well, as they took their magazine to some of the most idiotic places, even I thought were impossible. The price guide and crap they put out on a daily basis is still awful and driven by the same factors it had been when the year started, and I am still disgusted daily with their arrogant propaganda they spew from all parts of their internet entities. However, I wasnt the only one who was raging against the idiot brigade this year, as Rob from VOTC took it to them at the National.
I also took it upon myself to explore other mediums that I could reach people this year, and I think I had more fun than I expected writing over at the UD Blog and for Tuff Stuff as the “Hobby Watchdog.” I hope that next year will give me new opportunites as well, with my eye on reaching as many new collectors as possible. I also have to highlight the wonderful relationship with Blowout Cards, as they have somehow become the biggest blogosphere ad wagon around. They were nice enough to let me be a part of their massive Black Friday sale, and I loved every minute of it. For the future, I want bigger and better, and god only knows what that may be. This site has been featured on Deadspin and Yardbarker, so maybe I can set my sites on more national audiences. Aaron Gleeman was recently brought to my attention as a role model, though I doubt my niche audience would ever grow to even a sliver of a fraction of what he gets.
Now a few thanks to people I owe some gratitude. First, thanks to the now 275,000 plus people that have visited this site. SCU, until recent holidays, got around 650 a day, which is almost double where I started this year. You guys are what drive me to spend the time on this site each week, and all of my successes are thanks to the support I receive. Second, on the other hand, thanks to the haters who seem to think that they are going to have some effect on the way I do things. My ass is a lot cleaner thanks to the toilet paper they seem to send me on a daily basis, its sure been nice to have your thoughts to use in that way. Im sure they are happy to know that they are just as much a reason why I keep on goin
g.
Of course, thank you to my wonderful wife, who actually admitted to me recently that she does read the site quite often, even if she hates football and only is mildly interested in cards. I have gotten her to want to open the packs each time I get some, so hey, thats a start right? Lastly, thanks to Russ, Rob, Matt, Dave, Mario, Sooz, Marie, Chris, Ben, Jeff(x2), AR, Chris, Pat, Toby, Shawn and the rest of my twitter buds, your suggestions, support and help have been greatly appreciated.
Here is to a happy and healthy new year, all the best from myself to you and your families. Thanks for making SCU a part of your day, I look forward to what is in store for 2010.

SCU Breaks is Back! 3 Boxes of 2009 Limited Football – FULL


SCU Breaks has been on hiatus for a while, but it is back and better than ever with 3 Boxes of 2009 Leaf Limited Football! Previous breaks have netted us some MAJOR pulls, and I think it is a cool little perk to get you guys a new way to get involved in the site.

In addition to my thanks for their sponsorship of this break, I would encourage you to go check out their amazing prices over at Blowoutcards.com.
The way this will work is you will pay a flat fee via paypal for two random teams, which will be assigned via random.org.

For all dual team cards, I will have a random drawing for those involved. Cards go to player’s team pictured ON THAT CARD. Vikings Favre goes to Vikings, Packers Favre goes to Packers. Questions on rules can be posted below, or search SCU Breaks at the top of the page.
PAYMENT: Please send all payments to gellmana@gmail.com via paypal, no checks or MOs accepted, USA readers only without contact first. I will not be participating in this break, and will perform all randoms and box breaks via youtube. Your spot is not confirmed until payment is sent.

Special Announcement!

What a year it has been in my personal life, thats all I can say.

Last year on the 29th I honestly had one of the best days of my life, hands down. My wife and I had a beautiful wedding back in Minnesota, and I have been very blessed to have a woman like her in my life. I cant say that enough. Its been a whirlwind year with the economy negatively affecting our lives, but to have wonderful success after the bad was completely amazing. As if the tornado that has been sweeping through our lives hadnt gotten strong enough, a second hugely exciting thing comes along and makes me forget all the tough times over the previous few months.
A few months ago we found out that we are having our first child, and now that we have told the whole family, I am happy to bring you guys into the loop. The baby, a boy, will be born this May, and I cannot wait to have a little guy to pass all my collection down to. It really sort of completes the circle, you know? I have always wanted to start a family, and I cannot tell you in words what it means to me to be able to do that.
Sadly, that also means that around that time, SCU is going to take a back seat to more important things, and im sure all of you wont miss me all that much. Hopefully by Thanksgiving next year, we are going have a new family, surrounded by the wonderful family we already have, as well as a great foundation to build off of now that everything is back to the way it was financially.
It has been a relief to have used this blog as a sounding board for my life, and I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to be a daily contributor here, both good and bad. I never imagined that things would go this direction, and I definitely have everyone to thank for the wonderful support.
I have no doubt that SCU is not going to fade away as long as I have the need to write, and it will take a lot to quiet my voice for good. Although the blog wont have the same frequency of new material, it will not stop being a place to come for commentary on the state of what is going on.
I want to tell you all that you, the readers, are one of the things I am thankful for this year, as corny as that sounds. I never really knew what to expect back in March 2008, but I am glad that it has gotten to the point it has.
Here is to a happy and healthy rest of this year, and a great 2010.
