April 2004 Collector of the Month Award
Congratulations to Denver Forshey of Valencia, PA for being named as the
April 2004 Collector of the Month!
The TCC Collector of the Month Award recognizes collectors for their contribution
to the trading card hobby and their demonstrated interest in the hobby.
Denver has been collecting trading cards for over 20 years and has a collection
of over a couple of thousand cards. He collects trading cards for baseball,
basketball, football and hockey. However, he is most interested in hockey which
helps explain his favorite athlete and team - Jaromir Jagr and the New York Rangers.
In addition to Jagr, he enjoys collecting cards of Randy Moss as well as autographed
cards. His collection also includes bobblehead dolls.
One of Denver's most prized cards is the Hideki Matsui signature (2004 Upper Deck Signature
Stars Blue Ink HM - limited to 324) he recently pulled out of a 2004 Upper Deck box. Says
Denver, "I paid $65 for the box and the card is worth $250 (Issue #229 Beckett
Baseball Card Monthly Online Price Guide)." Denver was happy to tell TCC about
this nice pack pull which is included in our
Collector Pack Pulls section.
When asked about some of his reasons for being interested in the hobby, Denver
explained, "I love to collect and it is my favorite way to pass time. It
is always fun to let other people know just how much fun it is to collect
trading cards. Plus, it would be nice to help people who are just starting
with the hobby know what stuff to collect."
Denver went on to further say, "I'm looking forward to being involved in the
TCC community of collectors. One day, I would even like to own my own card shop and
will be happy to help other TCC collectors looking for advice and suggestions or to
buy and trade cards."
