Tired of vintage I see. So how about inserts and short prints?
Wayne! Not sure how I missed these... truly AWESOME my friend... truly AWESOME!!
Tired of vintage? (shining head) No...not at all...
...or are you saying you want to trade those old, faded, torn and crumpled cards of yours for some nice, new shiny ones?
OK, how about that Carl Yastrzemski card, the one with a torn corner and writing on it? I have some really shiny cards I might be willing to trade....rrrreeeeaaally shiny ones, and not a spot on them!
My gut says you're going to decline the offer lol
I don't know what I'm more impressed with... your extensive collection or the fact that you spent the time and effort in getting everything scanned!
Do you also inventory your cards in a spreadsheet of some sort? Jeez, I'm thoroughly impressed by how methodical you are.
Your right I wont trade any of these. LOL
I made about 10 scans a night over the past 2 years. I update every month with my box breaks and trades I have made I will get caught up here soon to.
It sure makes it easier to enjoy your cards without handeling them 1 by 1 and taking a chance of damaging them as well. I have an entertainment center that holds about 20 cards and I roatate them out once a month. My kids, family and friends know that touching them are off limits.
I suggest you take a few moments, and read the rules of the site, especially #3, the one you just broke. This is strictly a G-Rated site. Randy has messaged you in regards to this post.
10 scans a night over the past 2 years is absolutely ludicrous. You are truly a man with a passion! It really boggles my mind the amount of man-hours that must be. I guess it's true what they say about "labour of love".
Are you making headway with your collection? Is there a lot of scanning left or have you pretty much gotten caught up to the incoming rate of new material?
Yes, I did receive and acknowledge the message Randy sent me - my apologies, I won't use curse words (even obfuscated) in the future. I was just truly surprised at the extent of T-206's collection.
There were several youngsters on the old board that were 12-13 years old, and although they most likely hear swear words at home, and on the school playgraound, we certainly don't want to promote it on here, especially since the parents of those youngsters were supervising them while on the site. In case we still have any underage members, we will always be strictly a G-rated site. That is pretty much common knowledge on any message board. If you wouldn't say it to your Grandma, you don't say it on here. Thanks for your co-operation, and understanding.
What if my grandmother is a particularly lewd person?
I'm kidding though, and I very much understand your desire to keep things clean around here. I'll make sure to keep my language in check and again I appreciate the warning as opposed to being banned outright or something like that.
Thanks, I am almost done. I still have more cards to scan and present but we coming to my box breaks and trades over the last year soon. These something like 5,000 cards scanned right now out of my 16,549 PC cards although most of them wont be scanned right now but maybe sometime in the future when I am retired or board. LOL
back to some vintage
I recognize quite a few of those. I have a few meself.
Another great assortment Wayne... pretty soon you will need to build an addition onto your house just to have a place to store all these cards!
thanks guys , Maybe this thread will turn into a Beckett organizer for trade cards.
For example do you have a scan or pick of the card and the reply will be "Go to T-206 PC Thread there is a scan of the card in there" LOL
