For those of you who collect cards and other items, the Beckett price guide is the magazine that lists all the prices and hottest collectables. The most recent issue, available at Borders in the magazine section, is dedicated to Spongebob's 10th anniversary. As part of the magazine, there are "top 10 fan sites" listed--among them, our "rival" USB, but both "SB Mania" and "The Mermalair" were listed.

The guide also mentioned a SB Trading card series 1 and 2 produced by Topps. The full issue has pictures of both card sets as well as the prices. If anyone is interested, I'll scan some of the pages and post them.

Also on newsstands, the TV Guide magazine's Winter issue is dedicated to SpongeBob.

Wow. That is awesome.

Probably our first recognition in something that's not published online, as far as I know.

Ha... even though Mermalair is part of SBM, it's listed as a separate site! WE WON TWICE! :P

I'm sure we all want to know, Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants, how does it feel to be the next big thing?

;D Fantastic.

It's like Marvel. Even though it's owned by Disney now, you don't consider it to be Disney. :P

When I saw the Mermalair screenshot, I thought that the site had been re-designed and I had no idea about it! But when I saw the same for Sarah's SB Shrine, I knew it must have been something to do with the printing, or the photocopier.

Shame on them for putting SpongeBob.net on there, we all know the site for being a sell-out and hardly updated. -.-

That's terrific! The list seems pretty fair, except for USB being ranked higher than SBM. I wouldn't have included SpongeBob World or the SpongeBob Fan Club, since they haven't been updated in centuries, but I guess there's just not enough active SB fansites anymore.

Keep up the good work, SBM! :P

Thanks for mentioning this. My scanner is currently on loan to someone else so I wouldn't have been able to get a decent scan of it anyway--it would have been a crappy photo.

Too bad SBR isn't on anymore... It would've made the list for sure.
