This "contest" was inspired by previous "Chains" most notably the contest/link "The Chain" by Marc (msw_sportscards).

THE CONCEPT: is very simple I ship off a package to the first person in the list of participants, that person after oohing and aahing at the contents picks one, two or more cards (how many they please if any) from the stack, replaces those cards with different cards and ships the stack to the next person on the list. If they wish they may add more cards to the stack, provided only cards are shipped, (Marc's original chain got some snags when people started adding memorabilia and full card sets to the package making shipping costs phenomenal) 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. Hopefully I will then quickly start up a new chain to keep this fun process ongoing.

Last chain the main rule was the replacement card had to be a different year from the card it was replacing. That doesn't need to be followed this time I think it confused things a bit more. Most of the time the replacement card will be a different year anyway.

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 time limit for how long you keep the chain stack, but try to keep things moving so it doesn't get stale. The last round averaged about a week (6 to 7 days) turnaround time which was good. Holiday shipping caused a bit of a delay but nothing major.

Delivery Confirmation is not required but it is requested so that the group can track where the package currently is.

This probably goes without saying but when your turn is getting close please PM the next person in line to get their mailing address if you don't already have it.

Justin et al,

sad.gif Sorry guys I haven't started this round up yet. Hadn't had time to load up a package. This took the back seat to a bunch of other things at this time.

I don't have much in the way of Basketball so there will be very little if any Hoops stuff.

I'll see what I can do this week.

Okay, got the go ahead from Kirk to restart this, but not sure what members would want back in, so I will wait till July 1st to hear from anyone who has any interest in joining back in.

Here's the scans, not much, but good for starters, add any extra if you want for the chain, like basketball, only one card, so any donation would be great, and hopefully we can keep this going a few rounds!
Try to replace the card you take with same BV, Auto for Auto, GU for GU, RC for RC etc.

huh.gif OH OK Paul. Thanks for reviving the chain for this round.

So that means there is a slight change in the chain order:
Sam instead of sending to me you will send the package to Justin (Boston5761).
David (ajerhead18) you will now be sending to me instead of Paul.

Guys keep me in the loop via this thread or PM when you send/receive the chain package.
IF you are the next to receive make sure the guy who currently has the package has your mailing address, and of course when you have the package make sure you get the mailing address of the next guy on the list. Remember that I will be the last one to receive.

bajmurray
I received the package a couple of days ago.

I decided to keep 3 cards:

Justin Verlander jersey
Matthew Corrente Auto
Colton Sceviour Auto.

I have added in the 5 cards in this scan:

Needless to say, the bottom 2 are with Sam in mind!

The package will go out to WCSF next week!

Thanks for the update Brian. Those are some cool additions.

First post getting status update.

Package received!

I've decided to take only one card: the Redskins triple GU. I've replaced that with...

A Bowman Brady Quinn auto, #/199! I did a bit of research and hopefully, this is still a bit of a "targeted" addition.

Cards are re-packed and will be heading out shortly.
