The TCC Collector Zone reached another major milestone today as we have now completed 1000 collector-to-collector transactions including both sales and trades!
First, on a personal note...
Like many of you, I have made wonderful additions to my personal collection because of my transactions here. From Pirates to Steelers to Kenyon to Clemente to Maxiell to U.S. Presidents and so much more, many of you have helped along the way. From AU cards to GU cards to inserts to parallels to base cards, the "golden" packages have both come and gone.
From one collector to another, thank you! I look forward to many more transactions with many more of you in the days to come!
Now, on an overall note...
While this is certainly a major milestone, it's just the beginning and an opportunity to reflect, make some changes and grow.
Overall, our first 1000 completed transactions have been rather smooth. The number of "bad" transactions is very, very low and most - or all - have either been worked out or continue to be handled.
In addition, we're always looking for ways to further improve the flow of transactions so that they are easy to create, track and close. We continue to find that some transactions are just left hanging - likely closed but never confirmed as closed. That is something that will be changed.
So, you can be confident that we're simply going to take a brief moment to enjoy this milestone but then we're going to make a significant effort in the coming days to take our tools and policies related to collector-to-collector transactions to an even higher level!
