Create Transaction

For added enjoyment, listen to this while browsing the thread !- link provided by RGBII

I am starting a collector's chain of brotherly love. By doing so, I am creating a package that contains 1 Vintage Card, 1 RC, 1 GU, 1 AU, and 1 Insert card. I will send this package to the 1st person who requests to be on the list. When that person receives, they may, then, take one card and replace it with another one. Then they send it to the next person on the list, and so on and so forth.

1. Request to be added to the list. By doing so, you agree to add a card from the same category from which you took a card. i.e. GU for GU, AU for AU, etc.

2. You must add at least one card to the package but may add more.

3. You must post in this thread when you receive and let everyone know what you are taking and what you are adding.

4. You must agree to send with DC. This way we can keep track of the package.

5. You must have at least 10 completed transactions to join the chain.

6. You may not join the chain if your user id is red. If you join in good standing and at a later date your user id is set to red, you will be removed from the chain. Depending on the violation, you may be banned from the chain permanently.

7. Once you receive the package, you have 7 days to ship the package to the next person on the list.

8. I know we won't have a problem with this but by joining you agree to let me and anyone else in the chain publicly humiliate you if you break this chain. In other words, if you make off with the stuff, you will be outed on this site and every other site.

9. When the package makes it back to me, I will take 2 cards, replace them and add another card from each category. At this time, the second round will begin and each person will take 2 cards and add 2 cards, and so on and so forth for each subsequent round.

Create Transaction

OK...the much awaited and long overdue 2nd round is about to begin with some new rules and a new twist.

New Rules

1. Each member who has expressed interest in being part of The Chain is now head of their own mini chain.

2. You should create your own thread and PM me with a link.

3. I will send 1 card to the head of each mini chain.

4. You will then be set upon the task of perpetuating your chain.

5. You may contact members of The Chain and send to them, other TCC members, members from other sites, or unaffiliated collectors.

5.5 You may keep the card I send you or pass it on. Keep what you want and send what you want. This eliminates the shipping worries as there will be no bulky,all-encompassing package. You only have to send what you want to give.

6. The same people may be a part of more than one chain. The same people may be multiple links in the same chain. However, there must be at least 10 links between before a link may receive twice as to avoid the same 2, 3, or 4 people just sending to each other.

7. There will be 3 prizes awarded for 3 categories:
Longest Chain- The head of the longest chain will receive a prize package.
Most Generous Link- This will be judged on a received vs. given basis. Will receive an ebay gift certificate.
Most Referrals- The member who drives the most traffic to this site will receive a free slot in an upcoming box break.

8 Each link should post in the respective thread what they received and what they are sending.

9. Be good stewards of the hobby, be generous, and, most importantly, have fun.
