OK so you've seen the deal or rather the contest/link "The Chain" by Marc (msw_sportscards) and the New Part 2 Well this starship Captain is trying his hand at a link.

The Concept: When I start off this link I will send a minimum of two cards a fairly recent card (2000s or so), and an older card (Pre-1980s probably 70s). When the next person gets the cards they choose what they want and then replace with either:

A "Newer" card that is at least one year newer than the card they are keeping.

Or an "Older" card that is at least one year older than the card they are keeping.

The replacement card can not be the same year as the card that is being kept. If you choose to take more than one card you may do so, just replace each card you took with either a newer card or an older card.

They may replace just one of the cards, or both/all if they want, but in keeping with the nature of the Chain if you take something you must replace it. If not the chain may die before being completed.

Hopefully each person will provide a little bit of a range to choose from, it would be sad if the next to last person in the chain is stuck getting two 2012 cards and has no choice but to send "older". I don't think that will happen but it might be possible.

NOTE: Please verify you are still in.

Package found its way to SILVER SPRING, MD (and the completion of the circle)

THANK YOU to all who participated. A new chain link will begin hopefully in a few weeks. Hopefully more folks will join that one.
