    What brings you here day after day?

    I'm sure for most, there are a variety of reasons why you spend the time you do visiting a site like this, but for this exercise, you can only pick the ONE PRIMARY reason. I'm curious, given the likely meager sample size this may receive, but why do you come back here day after day? It's mostly curiosity and maybe the answers could help shape a better site for everyone.

    If I can only pick one I think it is the wealth of knowledge on this board. If I don't have the answer for something I can be sure someone here does.
    I do like the ability to talk on topic with fellow collectors, and off topic with the degenerates in the night thread. Sharing my highs and lows of my own collection and seeing some of the amazing cards in others.

    I like the discussions, seeing cards that others have, hoping to find a lead on my Holy Grail, and sharing/learning interesting tidbits about cards that I collect. Oh, and Tanner's fun stories!

    Mostly 5 and 4.

    A good chunk of 3, though I have a blog and do brain dumps sometimes.

    I've had a little of 2, though I don't really put myself out there much.

    And I can't say much for 1. Other than cgilmo and mouschi, I couldn't tell you anything about any users. I don't follow who posts what and who holds what opinions. Even though I have been on this site for over a decade I don't really participate in a social mode.

    It's been a long time since I've been here. I'm making a comeback though...mostly because I love Gilmore.

    I'm planning on trying to fill in some missing pieces to my Rolen PC and finally finish this 1999 SP Signature autograph set I've been neglecting lately.

    Thanks, fellas. It's nice to see some old names here still.

    I could never give up on that set. Far too many kind people here have contributed to it. Now I need to scan everything again. Apparently Photobucket took a dump during my absence and the scans from that set (and my Rolen PC) were all lost a few computers ago.

    Seeing the "love" given daily in the "Anything Goes" forum is like a fireside warm hug from a lovely lady with a soft blanket around her...

    From my side...

    - No prospect of obtaining cards to help my collection. This isn't the place to buy/sell/trade.

    - Not seeking validation in a social media sense. This isn't the hotbed of rumors or hot takes!

    - Interacting with a group of genuinely good guys that share a common interest. Yes. This is the FCB wheelhouse.

    - Killing time, mostly late at night, typing away on my little keyboard and contributing a little something to the online universe of my collecting habit? For sure.
    Collecting Roberto Alomar. Over 4000 unique cards, but always looking for those I'm missing!

    I joined here because I could see it was a stellar community with a wealth of knowledge and a healthy disposition. My primary focus on FCB is as a lurker but I read every thread that I find interesting, which happens to include the player collector threads. The majority of my posts go into my Adam Dunn and Mystery Cuts threads because those are 2 of my main focus points as a collector. When I see player posts in the 90's threads, early 00's, Bagwell, Griffey, Henderson, etc. (seriously, every player thread, I've read every post) I just click and pop some popcorn. My favorite part of this hobby are the long-term collectors, the people with focus and dedication.

    It used to be because it was a support group for legalizing midget mortal combat, now, I donít even know.
