I'll be straight with you: I found TCC while Googling for free online price guides. Naturally, my first couple of posts were price checks, but once I stumbled around the site I realized, 'hey, there's more to this place than people with price guides.' And that's when it began. Now I'm 3,500+ posts into my career here and can't say anything but good things about the joint.
Now, I have tried other sites and am a member of other sites, as most of us are. But I've noticed something: I frequent the other sites for their marketplaces. In contrast, I frequent TCC because it's a second home. Though I've seemed to suck TCC dry of Gary Payton cards, I still keep coming back for more! And why? Because of the people.
First and foremost, you've got Bob. He interacts greatly with the members and manages the site to make it fit for everyone who visits. Second you've got the TCC Team. No joke, they're probably one of the best group of old men I've ever encountered (c'mon, laugh!) They care about TCC's users and always are excited for the latest pack pulls, steals and Show and Tell entries. Last, but certainly not least, you've got the TCC members themselves. Of course a Web site is nothing without visitors, and in this case members; but I think TCC has outdone itself with the kinds of options, activities and spunk it offers hobby enthusiasts young and old, and that's why it's become one of the most popular hobby-based Web sites out there.
There's a great governmental system at work here: our leaders look to the masses for direction and act upon it if they feel it is best for the greater good. What more can one person ask for?
One thing is for certain, and that's TCC will always be my stomping grounds. It's a web-based home away from home and I don't think I could ever ask for more.
