    I happen to think that you still have it in you so let's focus on the positive and not the negative mmkay my friend?

    Btw way it's nice to see you make an appearance. So many of us have gone our separate ways to a degree over the years..

    And speaking of which, I suggest we all try and pick a day that would work out for most of our long lost friends to get back together for an Online FCB Cookout! It would have to be BYOB of course and maybe Chris could hand out some virtual prize giveaways as well!!
    Every once in a while I make an appearance, but great to see you around Randy.

    I'd be up for whatever Chris and Tim cook up.
    Hello again.

    Sounds delicious.

    I'll bring the family.

    If we start driving now, we should be there in 30 hours...give or take a few for bathroom breaks.

He's their sports spokesman and even Hanes couldn't get him to sign more than TEN autographs??? You know they made at least 100,000+ Hanes underwear packs with Jordan cards (is it 3 cards per pack?).
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I HATE STICKER AUTOGRAPHS, THAT WAS THE WORST CREATION IN THE HISTORY OF SPORTS CARDS!

    Brian Gray was the second dumbest thing created by the sports card hobby for sure!

    T.J. Schwartz was the third dumbest thing created by the sports card hobby.

    Mainly Topps/Upper Deck Baseball factory sets with special Inserts, or Cereal promotions that are easily opened so people open the sets/boxes with BASEBALL INSERT CARDS (or the Post Cereal card, 2002 Post mini bobble-heads, and so many others) and stick them in their pockets after opening every set/box in the store (and then making a nice free little fortune on eBay) like:

    Every time I went into my local Albertson's grocery store in early to mid-2002; kids were opening Post Cereal boxes and pulling out the mini bobble-head figures that were right on top of the boxes in plastic packages. Then I looked on eBay & sellers were getting $100 for the (10) figure set!!! I bought the same exact full set on eBay 3-years ago for $10.00 + $3.00 S&H??? Now knuckleheads want $10 each for some of the same figures again, but you can still find FULL SETS for $10.00. Go figure.

    1994 & 1995 Collector's Choice Factory Sealed Sets with (5) Gold cards or (15) gold cards respectively. Dealers wanted $50.00-$80.00 each for the 1994 Gold- Griffey, F. Thomas, and Cal Ripken back then and $3-$5 for COMMONS! I knew at least a dozen local collectors/dealers who were making Gold sets. These were just laying on top of the cards in a cellophane pack. So people just ripped off the thin plastic Topps shrink wrap seal & they had easy access to the packs, dumb!

    Topps did the same thing with very easy access to the special cards:
    1993 Topps Baseball with (10) ToppsGold, (3) ToppsBlackGold, and (9) '94 Pre-Production cards, 1994 Topps Retail Factory Sets with a 1995 Topps Finest pre-production, '95 Bowman pre-production & regular '95 Topps pre-production, 1994 Topps Hobby Factory sets with (9) '95 pre-production cards, (3) card Superstar Samplers, (1) ToppsGold AND (3) ToppsBlackGold, 1995 Topps sets with (10) Opening Day cards & (7) card Cyberstat set, 1996 Topps Baseball Factory sets with "Tri-Cards" OR pack of (5) Mickey Mantle B&W cards, etc. etc, Then the 2000's Topps Factory sets with the (5) card ROOKIES packs. 2008-2012 Mantle Gold Chrome Reprints, 2007 Topps with the Mantle RELIC cards, and on & on.

    Almost no one were buying the factory sets by 1994 in retail stores in Florida. They had already been opened by someone who stole only the bonus card packs or special cards!

    SO THESE WERE ONE OF THE WORST IDEAS ANY CARD COMPANY EVER CAME UP WITH!

    Man, wish I'd seen this earlier. But I must say that I absolutely refuse to travel in cars, airplanes or even ubers. This is because I deserve to travel only with the utmost style and comfort because I deserve it. So I've just checked on several different resources and explained to all of them:

    Do you know who I am?

    I don't know how to put this but, I'm kind of a Big Deal. People know me.



    The only place that didn't hang up on me said it would take me 19 hours and 50 minutes to arrive by Greyhound...so unfortunately
    I won't be able to make it in time! I'm bummed..

    Want to see doctor's notes too? Can you possibly be more of a @sshole?

    Be glad you are healthy, what did I ever do to you?

    Disabled canadian firefighters selling searched boxes of 2014 Bowman Draft, lousy graded cards in suitcases, and a random chance of a 2013 Bowman Chrome Kris Bryant Superfractor autos.

    Boy the peanut gallery is certainly drawn to certain threads like moths to a flame?

    My vote is for MetMouse as the worst thing to happen to cards. Hes probably 30 with kids now.
