Partner with COMC for more pics
-This is actually some other OP's idea, but I thought it was a good one. As I understand it, Beckett has a relationship with COMC that allows them to use Beckett BVs in their listings. -Why not work something out that would allow Beckett to use COMC's extensive photo collection? Should be a slam dunk. This would add a lot of value for subscribers.

-I can picture a sweet itunes-style app where we could scroll through our cards like itunes album covers.

RE: Partner with COMC for more pics
I'd be surprised if the partnership goes past what it is because are they also partnered with other forums like blowout cards.

RE: Partner with COMC for more pics
Even if the COMC thing didn't work out, I wouldn't mind of they allowed "trusted members" of the community to upload cards with an option for other members to "flag" incorrect/suspect/poor quality pics. (There could even be an option of indicating that the pic hasn't yet been officially confirmed). Once a card was flagged, the pic could automatically be removed pending administrative review. There's a huge untapped market of free, willing, and trustworthy labor out there. I see how some people might look at it as pandora's box, but to me, it's better than the alternative of "no photo available" staring at me in my Org. I think it would be easy enough to revoke posting privileges of someone who proved to be less than trustworthy.

I think we have the option to upload pictures of our cards. At least we did on the old site.

We do but I think they are just "sitting there" waiting for someone from Beckett to approve them

RE: Partner with COMC for more pics
I like this idea....as I often use COMC to find pictures of cards that I can't find on here and what not.

And it is sitting there in our organize, trade page and/or sale page.

To the OP, you are bloody and flaming marvelous! Keep this up and Beckett might just support this idea into implementation.
