    Old Player Collector Thread = Missing Player Collectors?

    Looking through an old thread and I was getting frustrated with the "Photobucket No Image" thing, so my attention turned to the names who posted from that old thread. I wonder where these people are? Did they even say good bye before they left???? Any of these guys lurking?? If anything it was a good trip through FCB memory lane.

    @predatorkj is still around, but I don't think he posts much. He sold me a Marwin Gonzalez card about a month ago.

    Like most things, people can by cyclical on their interest and involvement. I recognize several user names right off the bat, others not as familiar. Maybe some or gone for good and maybe some spend more time on a different site. The sites themselves are ether same way. This is my third site "home", where the last two either became uninteresting or traffic slowed to the point of boredom, but I still pop in to 2-3 other sites from time to time.

    I'm here ! On all the time - Just lurking in the shadows

    The slight concern from 1 person of my whereabouts may have been a game changer...

    Sorry, I haven't been around much lately. Slowed down on buying cards for a while. I'm getting the itch to get back to it again though. I have to step back and take a break every once in a while.

    Glad to see you guys around still! I don't post that much, so I am barely one to talk, but I am always partial to the player collector camaraderie. Of course, the three people on my block list still post all the time. Sadly, they're not going anywhere!

    I'm not really around. I'll eventually come back to collecting, and a still do a little. For me my second kid (who's now almost 6) becoming a toddler was the earnest fade to being active on message boards.

    Not hard to understand. This market is making it harder and harder to stay interested, at least for me. Still clinging on, but have shifted my collecting focus a fair amount and cut back too. I am on the verge of the biggest step towards ending my collecting career, which is focusing only on a few subjects of interest. When I stop buying Garvey stuff though, it's over.

    @Gwynn545 I'm still big into collecting Oswalt. I don't use Photobucket anymore because it isn't free.

    I'm on Flikr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/24691365@N08/?

    And I have my website: http://royoswalt44.com/

    I unfortunately don't visit this site much anymore.

    That is actually sad, in a totally self-centered sort of way, thinking of all the time and effort (not to mention money) put into it, and to have it wane because no other reason than "it is getting boring". Not saying that is you exactly, but I think about that for guys who have virtually collected everything there is to collect... for Gwynn, I can't imagine that would happen unless I win the lottery! Glad to se eyou around somewhat still, and maybe something will spark you back full force! (The no-logo, Donruss, multiple-parallel crap not doing for you either, huh?)

    Photobucket is a joke, and had ruined most of the great threads on this site. I have not even tried to transfer all my pics over anywhere else because I'm gun-shy now. Glad to see you around a bit still!
