    That's a long time. The Blowout boards are a lot like Beckett's was. A lot of young collectors and "investors" who never get further than those boards for learning about the hobby or the sport.

    I remember Beckett being extremely protective of their book values as copyrighted material, so if someone came and asked what the value of a certain card was, you couldn't just say,"$10," you had to say it was "between $9.99 and $10.01" and people actually got suspended for posting book value. Which is odd, considering that that was the one place where they literally owned everything that was posted.

    Then the new owners tried to monetize everything, because they realized too late that buying a magazine in the late 00s was a roadmap to oblivion. I can't believe they still publish it. I guess $10 for a bunch of irrelevant data still sells well enough. When they started getting involved in trades, and so many good contributors left, that was the end. It became a real stinkburger.

    10 years later, Beckett still doesn't learn. Beckett changed their blog/news page to a new format and it sucks. BIGTIME.

    In 10 years, I referred zero people.

    Do I get a prize for that?

    How many had me on their block list?

    Remember when I posted customs? Or when I didn't have kids? Or stayed in an insanely smoky room in Cleveland?

    Hello old timers.

    Hello old timers.
    Hello Mike!
    I remember your Customs that you did an awesome job at! I remember you before and after kids. And I do remember your complaining about that smoky room in Cleveland.
    And we always got along great so you were never on my block list my friend!

    Anyhoo, good to see you're still here!
