1. Matchmaker - a single page that will show you your best options for trading and buying.
2. U.S. Coins - a new collectibles option on beckett.com. Collect, organize, trade, buy, and sell coins through our new U.S. Coin database.
3. C2C Selling - a restructuring of our current Trade system to make trading, selling, and buying between collectors a breeze.

also, the search tricks would be nice if they would universally through the site
for instance: in the opg, i can search for partial words, or even numbers. this is usful in numerous ways. say i want to search for a carl yastremski card from the 1970's but i dont know what year it is from. i can search for "197 carl yast topps" (because who wants to try to spell yastremski) and it will pull up all of yaz's topps cards from the 70's. also, it's nice for shortprint A and B variations. if you have a stradburg topps card #661, bur dont know which variation, if you type strasburg 661, all the variations come up. if you just want to be lazy, it's helpful: if i want to find say a "2007 Bowman Chrome Draft Draft Picks Blue Refractors #BDPP57 John Tolisano", i can just type 2007 bow blu ref joh tolis" and get my result
that capability is not available in the org. though in the org we search for things using parenthesis (which is similar to the vertical bar search in the opg)
