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!,
