Where is Bob? When I was active from 07-09 or so he owned this site and was actively on. I dont see him anywhere. Did he sell this site to someone? Is he ok? Is he selling girl scout cookies? Can someone tell me where he is? I like his posts and insight on the hobby. Just curious.

I believe this site will survive as long as everyone contributes. What I mean is have everyone engage or participate in conversations. At this moment I have plenty of time on my hands and am trying to focus on bringing life back to TCC. I cant do it alone. Its a community effort not just a CZ Team thing or Admin thing. Its everyone involved. As a member of the CZT I am stepping up to the plate to try and tackle this issue of low activity. I wish I could help with all issues concerning this site but only a few CZT members are blessed with the main controls. So my powers are limited. I have recently proposed many ideas to the team to turn this ship around. Hopefully some of the ideas come to fruition.

As for the hobby I believe its what we make of it. To start off true collectors do not bust boxes to try to get more than what they paid for it. Only gamblers do that. Collectors bust boxes to get their favorite players/teams cards. Too many people worry about making their money back. You will be dissatisfied probably 90 times outta 100 if thats what you do. We should collect for the fun, not the money.

As for Bob, I think this site will do fine without him as long as its in the right hands. He built this ship. Its up to us to guide it and keep it afloat. I agree with redwing40 about making some changes with the CZT. If some dont have the time and the passion they should step down with an invitation to come back when both the time and passion return.

I wanna touch base with a comment edgerrin32 brought up about people who want only the hottest things. I am a card show promoter going on a year now. From the experiences Ive had so far there are still old school collectors and dealers out there. I could not believe how popular vintage is to this day. Making money at card shows is all about demand in your area. What might not sell in one place might sell at a show 50 miles away. You can only reach so many people at a card show. Thats the advantage of the internet. Not so much overhead compared to a LCS. To me, a card show is not about making profit off renting tables out. Its about the fun we experience. Talking to other collectors. My goal as a promoter is to get more kids involved into the hobby. Not to make money with the hobby but to have fun with the hobby.

To sum up what this topic is about....we dont need Bobs presence to keep the ship sailing. We all have the power to keep it afloat. All we have to do is click on the "New Topic" button or the "Post Reply" button. Thats it. But its up to the CZ team to make sure its running smoothly and rid of all the kinks that could harm our ship. I see a turnaround for TCC in 2013. Im gonna do my best for the community.
