That's the correct phrase and I like it! It sums up what we're trying to do here. wink.gif

Since the update was posted just over 10 days ago, we've added another 35 new members. Plus, yesterday was the highest traffic day ever for the entire site.

I'm really working this week to finally dig out from the hole that was created by my vision problems during much of June, so look for alot of news releases and articles to get posted over the next few days. biggrin.gif

TCC - 23,508 (up)

As an update...

Yesterday was the highest traffic day ever on the TradingCardCentral.com site and, with over 5 days to go, this month is already our highest traffic month ever.

Things are getting more and more busy all the time. wink.gif

Yes. The user name would be either "TCC" or "tccstaff" on other boards. In fact, I still visit a number of boards at times and you might even see me posting once in awhile. However, my time elsewhere keeps going down as things here are picking up. wink.gif

Time for another update...

Current Alexa Traffic Rank numbers (updated 7/28/05):

NAXCOM - 6,377 (down)
Beckett - 7,346 (down)
SCS - 22,073 (down)
TCC - 23,368 (up)
Upper Deck - 42,045 (down)
eTopps - 46,438 (down)

Looks like only one site was up in the rankings this time. biggrin.gif

Add to this the fact that we have 56 new members in just over the last 20 days plus the fact that Tuesday (7/26/05) broke the record for most traffic on the site yet again! This is getting FUN! biggrin.gif

Things are about to get even more interesting as well... wink.gif

The site has really come a long way since I became a member...and that wasn't very long ago. For my part in this...I've been doing a little trading on some other sites recently...and based on my the growth rate that this site is showing...I can see us easily catching up and surpassing sites like SCF and SCS. We've got a good solid core of collectors here..and this site has a ton to offer.
