The TCC CZT, Membership, & C & G Teams would like to announce Shawn (sasports) as Trading Card Central’s Member of the Month for June 2008!
Shawn is currently serving our country as a member of the Army in Iraq. Despite being so far away from home, Shawn remains very involved in collecting cards. Shawn spends his free time trying to achieve his goal of creating a card shop. This goal has been hard for him so far, as his profession keeps him on the move. However, Shawn has began work on an online store at http://www.sasports.bravehost.com/ . So far, he already has a list of football singles for sale!
Shawn also stays connected with the hobby through his membership at Trading Card Central. Since joining TCC on July 07, 2007, he has accumulated over 3,000 posts and has completed a total of 72 transactions. Even though he is overseas, Shawn still tries to add to his transaction total.
Shawn also contributes to TCC in other ways. In March, he created player collection topics to keep track of which members collect certain players. This is a very helpful tool for the player collectors who use TCC to add to their collections. In a recent Hobby Talk topic, Shawn asked members to show off the best pieces of their collections. With the help of prizes donated by Collector Zone Team member RGBII, the topic turned into a large contest. After all was said and done, Shawn picked the winners for two amazing cards: game-used cards of baseball Hall of Famers Roy Campanella and Lou Gehrig! With a book value of $200, the Lou Gehrig bat card became one of the most memorable contest prizes in TCC’s history!
As a collector, Shawn is a huge Oklahoma Sooners fan. He collects cards of all former Oklahoma Sooners football players, particularly current Minnesota Viking running back Adrian Peterson.
Please join us in recognizing Shawn as the June 2008 TCC Member of the Month!
