Folks,

I have been absent and without input for so long that these words will have meaning but to a very few.

I found a home here at Trading Card Central in 2006. To say that it was comfortable would be the understatement of this quarter century. The fine members of this site not only understood my obsession, they reveled in it.

I found a community that was tight, committed and fired-up. Y'all made me a better collector. I didn't think that was possible. Each and every member that posted here made me appreciate the enormity of the power of the internet and its potential.

I have found collectors better than me, more hard-core than me and ultimately more obsessed than me (tough act to follow, there).

You folks, the members of Trading Card Central, have carved a genuine, deep and profound influence on my life. That is not an overstatement, it is a fact. We may collect cardboard with pictures of men on them, but ultimately, we, the members of Trading Card Central did it better than anyone else.

I resign my duties and responsibilities to Trading Card Central.

I salute you one and all. never forget this . . .

Collect Hard!,
RGBII

Richard,

I can only thank you for you leadership during your time and our resulting friendship. As fate would have it, we joined Trading Card Central the same day. Who would have thunk it?

Thank you for your time and dedication to TCC and it's members. Speak soon.

Bob

Thank you for your outstanding service over the years, understandable action with whats gone on (or lack of) around here. I've taken over a web site with less traffic than here but it's been a tight little group over the years, drop by & say hi now & then (not trying to spam here just didn't want a friend & a great member of the hobby to totally disappear, the site is http://www.thecollectorsgroup.com/forums/index.php
a couple, maybe more guys from here post there once in a while. It's not much right now but I hope to have the time to put together another option for those that care.

thanks again

Richard,

Thank you for your "time served" and dedication to TCC. Especially all the behind the scenes stuff that we in the public TCC community don't see. You are one of the TCC team members who helped keep this site (and online community) going when things seemed like they were ending when Bob disappeared.

Thanks for all that you did here Richard, it was not unnoticed. Hate to see you go, but totally understand also at this point (as have had same thoughts for awhile now, as I"m wondering why I bother many days trying to keep a site afloat for an AWOL Admin). Being stubborn can only take me so far. See you on FB, unless you quitting that crazy place too, with it's diverse set of fanatics wink.gif laugh.gif

I still remember the day when a newcomer offered me a Sammy Sosa autograph #d out of 21 for a whopping $20. I thought to myself: "Who is this guy?" and "Is this too good to be true?".

I eventually took the deal, and it was the start of a great friendship. Richard, you have presented yourself as a class act time and time again, and TCC would have been lost in the last few years had it not been for your leadership. You made the site enjoyable again, and put tons of your time into holding it up.

I feared this time was coming. Are you going to continue collecting as life allows it?

Can't say that I blame them, actually. You were part of the backbone of this site for a long time and it's quite disturbing to see you leaving something that you cherished so much. I also seem to recall a time where you might have ignored some resignations too, or at least argued against them until they were no longer valid. tongue.gif

I know life gets in the way, sometimes, but I sincerely hope that you are simply leaving the team and not collecting all together. It would definitely be a sad day for the hobby to see you go.

Thank you, Mr. Matthews.

I'll pop in from time to time, have do doubts. The site and its members have had way too much impact for me to ever dream of disregarding either.

No sir(s), gentlemen.

It is the real deal. I simply don't have the initiative to
be a part of the leadership here anymore.

I should have done this months ago.
