Showing 101: Those Mysterious Yellow Cards, pt 1

Yellow NAN cards (officially "non-breed" cards) cover several showing arenas, so I've decided to split this post into three parts. As I did previously, parts two and three will cover common judging standards.

A collectibility winner, or a color class winner?

As far as NAN is concerned, a yellow card allows OF models to enter collectibility classes and custom finish models (plastic customs, custom glaze, and artist resins) to enter workmanship classes.

If, for example, an OF model is entered at NAN in collectibility via a yellow NAN card, does that mean the card was also won in a collectibility class at a local show? Not necessarily.

I’ve been researching this topic for a few weeks, but so far I’ve been able to find any sort of restrictions applied specifically to yellow NAN cards except that they are not awarded in breed classes. Those classes could be workmanship or collectibility to echo NAN’s divisions, but they could also be split and judged based on gender or color (although this is rare.)

Next week, I will cover common judging standards for collectibility.
