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! wink.gif

I agree. Thanks to everyone as well, including you Bob! But I'm shocked there isn't something for the people who completed the 1,000 transaction...

It is by far the smoothest ship that I have seen sailing the seas of sportscard trading.... I have been docked here for a month and have lowered the anchor.... I have had a blast in my first month here and it is because of all the adds here that far surpass other sites... The people are great and the communication is even better.... I hope to see 2, 10, 25 and 100,000 trades here!!!

Oh I have no idea. Is there a way for me to even know that? I was just thinking since you gave away a gift to the 100,000 post it would be similar for this.

There are many, many additional members that host contests/giveaways and provide cards from their collections as prizes! Just wanted to make sure that was mentioned. wink.gif

That was my point...Anyone is free to step up and award prizes for things they see fit... We all have the opportunity to improve aspects of the site with our active involvement and prizes supplied by fellow collectors... I was trying to say that it is not just the responsibility of Bob to step up and provide the prize....

Way to go everyone, it's summer now so we should be making a lot more trades since we won't be as busy...let's shoot for 2,000 by the end of the summer at least

You have to go back and count every single one, combining both sales and trades to get to the thousandth. And tell us who had the first, 250th, 500th, 671st, and 750th to make it interesting biggrin.gif

It's been very nice to watch transactions get posted, transactions get shipped and transactions get completed. Nice, smooth and easy flow by so many of our members lately - just like it should be.

Great job! wink.gif

I think I'm the only one who hasn't contributed in trading as of late. sad.gif

But, that might change a little on Tuesday, if possible.
