This "contest" was inspired by previous "Chains"
most notably the contest "The Chain"
by Marc (msw_sportscards).THE CONCEPT:
Very simple I ship off a package to the first person in the list of participants, that person after oohing and aahhing at the contents picks one, two or more cards (how many they please, all or none) from the stack, replaces those cards with different cards and ships the remaining stack to the next person on the list. If they wish they may add more cards to the stack, provided only cards are shipped. No Large memorabilia or full sets. Then the next person does likewise (the oohing and aahing, the picking, the replacing, the shipping) until the package gets to the last person on the list who after the aforementioned sequence of actions (the oohing and aahing etc...) then returns the package to me the originator. Hopefully I will then quickly start up a new chain to keep this fun process ongoing.
The only real rule is if you take something out it must be replaced with something approximately equal in value, quality, cardness.
There is no specific time limit for how long you keep the chain stack, but try to keep things moving so it doesn't get stalled for too long or completely stopped (Like last round UGH).
Tracking is not required but it is requested so that the group can track where the package currently is, or if a problem occurs.HOW TO PARTICIPATE
: Leave a comment in this thread showing your interest in participating. THEN send a PM to me (captkirk42) with your contact information and mailing address (TCC handle, full real name, mailing address, email contact). If you don't PM me with your address and contact info you will not be added to this package round.
Members from the last package are welcome to participate in this one as well.
Participating members must have no restrictions or member limitations (Must send first, current transactions only etc...), and should be a fairly consistent regular poster with a current posting history here on TCC.
Lets try to get at least 10 members participating.Sign-Up Deadline
Sign up for this package chain is NOW OPEN and will run until Thursday 31 October 2013.Package Sending Order
When the sign-up deadline has passed I will randomize the list of participants (minus myself the chain originator and "terminator") the standard three times via random.org. I will post the order and then ship out the package to the first person on the list. At that time I will also PM each member with the name and mailing address of the member they will be shipping to.
