My favorite story derives from this very thread and RGB as well. I edged out aceecards in anessay contest, by a slim margin. As a result, Richard sent me a 1933 Goudey Rogers Hornsby. It was a bit beat up, but the prettiest thing I've ever seen. It inspired me to be moregenerous with the members on this site and indirectly to the creation if The Chain. I returned about a month ago after about a 2 year vacation from the hobby. My contest.thread Let's Start.with a Cousin is.an homage to this very thread. I have learned to not worry so much about making a.buck through the hobby, but rather promote it. That is due in part to Richard's influence on me.

One of my top tcc memories and there are a lot of them, but i gotta say it was the late night 3 hour conversations on the phone with johnny5, jaytucc,zimbow, and bee. First id call j5 than he'd 3 way vallen who would 3 way tucc or bee. We'd just talk for hours about each other, sports, and thered always be a trade or 2 made. For awhile we had a pretty strong bond but 1 by 1 we all fell off the site. I definitely miss making fun of them on the phone laugh.gif

Why not one more, featuring our own trading card king aceecards. Im not afraid to now say that at 14 years old i did some stupid things online. But in 2006 i decided to get very serious about collecting and i wanted on this site. Everyone said no. Except for mr emerick. He took a gamble. He told me that he would give me a 2nd chance. Thats where the story really begins. 22,000 posts and 600 trades later here i am, but with no lack of presence from acee. Over the years we made over a dozen trades. Hes sent me "surprise" extras in packages. And even just today i mailed him all the contents of my 2 A&G blasters to help his set building. Weve always looked out for one another. In 2011 i was banned by a power happy former team member for joking around with my bestfriend johnny5 on a thread. I just let it go, moved over to the bench and ebay. One night i was laying here thinking of how much i missed the site and all my friends so i messaged steve on facebook with my desire. Without hesitation he responded your account is now active. Ever since i strive to help out other members with free cards for their collections, advice they need and anything else i can help with. All thanks to the man i learned from, Aceecards.

Chipster,

That brought a tear to my eye....really. Cmon, is that the best we can do? Who else? Someone has to have some great stories, like the time I traded Johnny 5 a Mickey Mantle bone chip for some Pamela Anderson signed silicone. Or the time I traded RGBII an A&G wood mini made out of Blackbeard's peg leg for a piece of his toupee. Let's go guys....gonna have to bring it harder than that!

Okay, mine is short but sweet ........ I found this site while trading cards with various people all over the web and started some cool friendships over the years BUT never met anybody in person. Well; one day I'm at a card show in Nashville and I overhear this dealer talking to a bystander and he says, "I got this card from a guy on TCC and he collects Jim Thome card. He was referring to OUR trade." that was a surreal moment for me cause you never think you are ever going to meet the people on this site and then you happen to run across them at a Tennessee Titans practice, card show, or mall.

I found TCC back in 2008 when I was 13 years old. I was in middle school and going through a time when I was trying to figure out who I was and I didn't have a lot of friends. But I had collected baseball cards since I was three and I had a friend who collected baseball cards, so I made baseball cards a big part of my life. TCC was such a friendly, and child-friendly, community that I felt like I fit right in. I remember the excitement of getting home from school and logging on to TCC and having new PMs from people I was negotiating trades with. The TCC community really helped me through those years.

But my favorite memory has to be winning a contest on this thread. The contest was to build your dream team with the cards of each of the players you would put on the team. I had a Rogers Hornsby Triple Threads relic, a Babe Ruth bat card, and a Stan Musial autograph that made my entry one of the better ones. I was so intent on winning, though, that every time I would PM someone about a trade, I would tell them to make sure to vote in this awesome contest that was going on. Looking back at it now, it was a little dishonest. But the amount of joy winning that contest brought to 14 year old me was priceless. Richard gave me a Roger Clemens Autograph /10. I remember he signed a piece of cardboard and inscribed it with his signature "collect hard" and I kept that piece of cardboard in the front of one of my binders. I bragged about the Clemens auto and the RGBII auto to my collector friend for weeks. I don't think there has every been a time before or since then that collecting has brought me so much joy. The notion that someone could be so kind and generous to me just for the sake of being kind and generous was humbling. Both Richard and Shawn were sort of collecting gods in my 14 year old mind because of this thread. Winning that contest and following all of the other contests on this thread will be a part of collecting that I will never forget.


Thank you so much for the contest! I have been in the process of selling the bulk of my collection (as in the 30,000 base and inserts I have) since I can't take of it to college with me, but I would love to see this thread and this site make a comeback. They are still two of my favorite things and I would be excited to renew my participation in them. Thanks again for the contest!


Bring me your Stan Musial and St. Louis Cardinals!!
