Alright, so based on people's feedback here are some thoughts.

There are a couple of Secret Santa randomizers online, so that part should be relatively easy.
  • To participate, members would either have to be a board member for six months OR have 10 positive iTrader feedback. (I looked at the folks that have responded to this thread so far, and that seems to cover everybody. I put the "or" in because some folks have been board members for awhile but have fewer than 10 feedback.

  • Members would share three teams or players that they collect.

  • Item value would be set at a minimum and maximum (TBA). Could either be individual cards or wax.

In response to somebody's concern about not having a particular sport or product, do we want to have separate Secret Santa lists for each sport? Say, one for football, baseball, hockey, etc? Or, do we just want to have one big pool? Personally, I think it would be more fun to have one big pool, but I'm open.

Glad to hear that folks are interested. I know it'll be fun.

one big pool would be best. Anyone involved should be able to take the time to find a nice product for the individual the get in the secret santa even if they dont have any cards of that sport. We are getting a good jump giving ample time to find nice stuff to give out.

No offense, but I dont think it should be like that...I dont think it should be seperated...Everyone into one big pool. And if you get stuck with someone that likes fb and you like basketball, then go to ur hobby shop and buy some packs

I have an idea. Separate secret Santa groups for each of the four major sports. Members could be involved in as many of the groups as they wanted. Just a thought.

This sounds good to me. It doesn't matter to me if we have one big pot or 4 individual ones. The individual ones would give people a chance at multiple gifts and everybody likes gifts!

Looks like you'd need another transaction
How about selling me something nice for a buck and you can get that much needed feedback credit
