    Anyone up for an edition of the "Traveling Box"?

    Seems like its been a very long time since one of these have been done. Bascially, we load up a flat rate box full of autos, jerseys, inserts, misc cool items that might fit someone else's collection better than it fits in yours and it travels from person to person with the hopes that everyone who takes leaves as much or more inside when sending to the next person. Participating members would need some type of moderator approval and I'm sure we would need a larger list of specific guidelines etc. Anyone up for exploring this?

    I want to see this happen only because I love the drama.

    Anyone remember these from the old Beckett boards? These always start out with the best of intentions, turn into a train wreck and make for great reading.

    In all seriousness though, best of luck with this. For the sake of the boards, I really hope it runs smoothly

    The old Beckett boards and FCB aren't the same. There won't be any drama with this group bc only members we know and have shown to be trustworthy will be allowed to participate. We've done this a few other times and have ha d no issues. Sorry to disappoint.

    I am game too. I have a pretty massive unsold inventory from which to share.

    If this is going to be a thing I'd love to get in on this. I spent my spare time this summer going through my collection and pulling out hundreds of cards in top loaders w/the intentions of selling. Game Used/Autos/90's inserts & RC's. I was going to start listing on eBay soon but this seems like such a superior and fun idea. If we get this going please let me know I'd love to be a part of it!

    I don't know Danny. I honestly would have liked to see more interest from some long timee members. Thought a mod might have jumped in to comment. Not sure. I would like it to happen though.

    So how does it typically start off? Should one person step up with the initial box seeding? If no one else is up for it I could probably make it happen. I have some inventory that hasn't been selling and some really nice, rarer duplicates that could make for a good start...say the word and I can put in a couple hours this weekend to start pulling stuff!
