OK so you've seen the deal or rather the contest/link "The Chain" by Marc (msw_sportscards) and the New Part 2 Well this starship Captain is trying his hand at a link.

The Concept: When I start off this link I will send a minimum of two cards a fairly recent card (2000s or so), and an older card (Pre-1980s probably 70s). When the next person gets the cards they choose what they want and then replace with either:

A "Newer" card that is at least one year newer than the card they are keeping.

Or an "Older" card that is at least one year older than the card they are keeping.

The replacement card can not be the same year as the card that is being kept. If you choose to take more than one card you may do so, just replace each card you took with either a newer card or an older card.

They may replace just one of the cards, or both/all if they want, but in keeping with the nature of the Chain if you take something you must replace it. If not the chain may die before being completed.

Hopefully each person will provide a little bit of a range to choose from, it would be sad if the next to last person in the chain is stuck getting two 2012 cards and has no choice but to send "older". I don't think that will happen but it might be possible.


NOTE: Please verify you are still in.

This looks like fun people, lets get some more folks on board....

Any more interest in this?

Or RGBII's Link?

Or WestCoastSkinsFan's Link?

I hope the chain isn't rusted already.

Looks cool. I am in.

Count me in! "Start up" packages being sent out this week. Waiting to see if we have any stragglers wanting to head their own chain.
captkirk42
OK I got beyond tired of not seeing this thing happen so I'm going to start it up no matter what. I will send out a package to the first person after me the weekend after Thanksgiving (Maybe even that Friday if I get up early enough)

There is still time to sign-up if you haven't yet. I will add you to the end of the list. The Deadline to join this link will be Turkey Day (Thursday 22 Nov.) at 11:59 PM

Remember you can take one card and replace it with either a Newer or Older card the next card has to be at least one year newer or older than the card you took. The replacement card cannot be the same year as the card you are taking.

You may also replace more than one card up to how many you want so long as each is replaced with either a newer or older card.

Once the sign-up list is closed Turkey Evening the last person on the list when they get the package will send it back to me (unless I've heard back from Marc the originator of this Round 2 of the chain).

This should be interesting.

For those in or from the US Happy Thanksgiving.

There is still time to get in on this boat. The way things are shaping up it looks like it maybe a little small but that is OK. Also looks like Sam might be the first recipient of the package we'll find out sometime on Friday I'm guessing.

I've got to figure out what to load as the first round.
captkirk42
Anyone else? Any more confirmations?

Since I didn't put stuff together I will try to assemble a small lot this week sometime and hopefully ship on Saturday.

New deadline to sign up Noon Friday 30 November.

Thanks Spencer still got you.

All - Looks like I might be able to get a package out tomorrow (Sat 01 Dec) not guaranteeing it though.
captkirk42
Any new takers?

I haven' heard back from a few folks from months ago to see it they are still in I'll move them to the end of the list to get things going. If they still haven't checked in by the time they are on deck I'll request whoever has the chain at that point to send it back to me.

I've got 9 cards so far I was thinking about 10-12. Most of them are newer cards from the last 5-10 years (ack one is an 11/12 card Oh well), there are a couple of older cards. There are some relics (GU). Not sure if I'll add an auto or not. There is at least 1 card from each of the Main 4 sports, so far most of it is Baseball. Don't think I'll have it completely ready by tomorrow. sad.gif
captkirk42
OK I have a small lot of cards ready for this and I have scanned them. I'll post the scans Friday (tomorrow) evening or sometime Saturday (when the package will hopefully ship out).

Verified chain members are listed on the first post in blue, when the package gets to the last verified member it will be shipped back to me.

Remember replacements for any cards you take must be a different year than the card you took. When the package gets to you please mention which card you are taking. Then tell us what you are replacing it with so we can track what is currently in the package.

When you receive the package check to see who is next in line and PM them for their mailing address if you haven't already.

Please post to this thread when you have received the package and when you ship it out.

I'm ready for this Kirk! .smile.gif Shoot me a pm with your address, this will be fun, too bad I'm last

Maybe someone will stumble upon this while the package is still making the rounds.
captkirk42
Package is on its way to Sam for its FIRST STOP.

As it it the height of the shipping season due to the holidays the package may from time to time get delayed between destinations.

Each participant can take up to a week to decide what to take before shipping the package to the next stop. Please let us know if there will be delays.

D'oh! wallbash.gif Sorry I shipped using a regular bubble mailer, I didn't think about using a box that could be reused for each shipment. I was rushing things a bit to make sure I got to the post office today. Oh well maybe next time.

OH here is the DC#: 03122860000010526866

Sam let us know when you receive the package. Tell us what you are taking and what is going in it's place.
WestCoastSkinsFan
I am the king of salvaging bubble mailers, so no worries. I eagerly await the package!
WestCoastSkinsFan
Okay! I've received, and decisions have been made. I have taken four cards. And I went with a theme: all cards I used as replacements are of the OLDER variety.

First off, I took the 2011 Johan Santana Limited GU. I don't collect much baseball, but he carried a fantasy team of mine back in the day, and I've always been fond of him since then. I replaced it with...

2010 Bowman Buster Posey RC

I also took the 2011 Clay Bucholz Heritage. Reasoning? No idea. Just wanted to add some older cards, such as...


user posted image
1981 Donruss Reggie Jackson

Not a huge one, but a kind of neat one from 30 years ago. I also took the 1990 Score Warren Moon, and replaced it with...


user posted image
71/72 Topps Jim Lorentz

I can't even remember how I happened upon that one, not being a hockey collector. But hey, what a better place than The Chain for it to find a home? Lastly, I took the Phil Simms Score. My stepfather is a big fan, and he'll always appreciate a card of his. For my replacement...

user posted image
1960 Topps John David Crow

I felt like it would be nice to add a new "oldest card" to the lot. So there you have it!

Mr. Murray has a group break package coming from me shortly. These will all be going along for the ride!
captkirk42
Cool replacements Sam. And Wow that was fast decision making.

bajmurray
Package has arrived!

It is now located approximately one mile from the home stadium of the BCS Busters---Northern Illinois University Huskies!

I will take a couple of days to decide, but at least one move will be obvious (thanks Kirk!)

Brian,
Cool glad that will work out.
captkirk42
double post not intended. Was trying to edit first post, guess I hit reply instead. UGH.
bajmurray
I have made my decision! I have taken the following 2 cards:

user posted image

The Kovalev is going into my Canadiens PC, and the Butkus will be passed on to a Bears fan in my area.

As replacements, I decided to go newer to replace the Kovalev, and older to replace the Butkus.

user posted image

The Jamie Benn is from 2011-12 Artifcats, and the Gilcgrist is a 1966 Topps AFL.

The package will go out to HUGEEAGLESFAN tomorrow.

Merry Christmas, all!

I decided to add these...

redwing40

redwing40
Ok, I have made my choice's!

Also took another Hockey card, I dont have much vintage, so I took the 70 Topps Jim Lorentz, I'm going with newer and adding this 98-99 BAP Auto Jamie Huscroft!

user posted image


And last, sorry for the Big Pictures, I really need to fix that! I took the 70 Tim McCarver from the Phillies, some of you know I was really born in South Philly and have family there, so this one will go to my Dad!
going with newer, Think 82 Topps? Sending both of these! not knowing much on other than hockey, I hope I did good on the trade for it

No problem Paul you had priorities that were way more important than the tiny pieces of cardboard that we pass around to each other for some bizarre reason. biggrin.gif

I'll mark the first page as package on way to SS, MD
captkirk42
Paul,

Package arrived today Tuesday 22 Jan. Thanks for the extras some of them will work their way into my PC some of the others into the next chain.

Thanks to all of you who participated in this round. Hopefully the next round we will have a few more people. I'll wait a few weeks before attempting to start another round up.

Hopefully we can get a few more folks interested before the next round starts. I need to figure out what to put in the next package. I'll post a new thread for the next round in a few days and plan on starting things up early Feb.
