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.

Rules
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.

Brandon,

I intend this to be self-regulating. I would hope that each member of the chain will keep the spirit in which this was created. With that said, I realize some of the younger collectors or people who aren't able to get cards of this caliber will be able to obtain something and give within their means. I would hope that everyone will take what they want and add what they can. That is in part why I will be recharging this every time the package makes its way back to me. In addition, I will use random.org to rearrange the order every round after the first in order to give everyone a fair chance at the recharge.

Dontcha just hate it when you know you have something and can't find it? I can't find the Sandberg RC but I think I may have a suitable replacement. Stay tuned for details (and scans).

Marc,
An interesting idea Please Add me.

This reminds me a little of the old (and now lost I think) Lucky TCC Nickel from a few years back. A different concept though since that wasn't a chain just a "pass it on at some time".


[Need to remind myself to track this thread biggrin.gif ]



What I Collect
I'm mostly about the Washington DC area (and Baltimore) Sports teams and Vintage plus Non-Sport.
