The Details of Zistle

I spent some time Friday adding some cards that were missing from Zistle's database. 1991 Collect-A-Books and 1991 Score. I've got a lot more to add to the Score checklists.

I was chatting with Ashley (one half of the Ashley and Josh team that is Zistle) on their live chat feature and she asked if I'd tried out the Detail feature yet. Nope, I said. I stepped away from the chat for a bit, finally found the correct icon to push and I was off to the races.

This is a screen shot of part of my collection. It is free form entry for the details. I've decided to add the Where, How Much and When elements. Unfortunately, I can't do that with some of the cards I've had for 20 years or so.

Ashley and I talked some more about Zistle. She swore me to secrecy, so I can't tell you what she said, but the mad scientists are cooking up some very cool things in the Zistle labs.

Some of the things that they have rolled out in the past month or so are:
  • Live Chat
  • Forums
  • Detail View and Notes
  • More cards added
There's always minor tweaking going on, and the Zistle team is quick to respond to questions or comments.

If you haven't checked them out, I'd urge you to look.

Overall not too bad for a couple of young kids and a dream. And it is free.


  1. I poked around there last night. I hadn't been in a while and they really have been doing some big things. It's a little time consuming, but I'm trying to finish off putting on some scans, etc. I agree, they seem like a neat couple.

  2. I really like Zistle. It's going to take a while for me to get my cards on, but I'm workin' on it! :)
