Chipper & Zistle

I got these shiny Chippers from Mario at Wax Heaven recently. Ain't they purdy?



That last one is a jumbo sized box topper. These three cards got the honor of being the first ones I loaded into my collection at Zistle. They send me a Beta invide a while back but I just got around to setting up an account this weekend. I've only messed with it for an hour or so, but it seems like a decent place to catalog your collection. It's easy to enter new cards in the system and it's one click to add an existing card in their database to your collection. I'm having some issues sorting and actually finding the cards easily, but I really haven't played with it enough to get the hang of it yet. It's still in beta, so there are links to give them feeedback everywhere. I've only put in about 15 cards so far, but I initial impression is favorable.

I've been looking for a way to catalog my Chipper Jones collection for a while (I've been putting it into a spreadsheet up until now, blecch) and I'm going to give this a shot. I'm getting jealous of everyone bragging about their Cansecos and Mattinglys and Lincecums and I want to be able to throw out a nice big number for my Chippers too. Give me a week or so to really get my mitts into it and I'll give a full report.

Now I just have to join Carboard Connection and find a new e-mail account for trading and I'll really be in business...

careful.... all of my spare time, you know, the time I don't have to begin with, has been spent on Zistle.
It sucks you in man.... and there's no getting out...

Welcome to the Zistle club. As the good Captain said, "It sucks you in man..."

Best thing is that they (Ashley and Josh) are responsive to ideas and suggestions.

Organizing my Chipper collection was one of my stated goals for this year. So if Zistle sucks me in that's a GOOD THING. I need to spend more time getting them all together. I'm strictly limiting it to Chippers though until I have every last one cataloged.

The bulk of the cards that I have added to Zistle (of the cards I own) are my Hershisers. I have added quite a few others, just to build up the database.
