WOW!!! That article is sweet!!!!!!! Very cool Skatalite!!. I have a room in my basement with a desk and some shelves where I do all my card collecting business. I'm going to print that off and hang it up over my desk.

I still have that 1988 Topps Complete Set sitting on a shelf next to me. That box is busted up pretty good, but here are some pics...

The corner is coming apart here, but I just couldn't bring myself to take the cards out and put them in another box. This is their home. Stay in your home cards, stay in your home!!

Here you can see the tick marks and labels I made when I seperated them into team sets. Right now they are in the box by number, so 1-???? Who can guess? How many cards were in a Topps Team set in 1988????

Also, here's a pic of that JD Drew jersey card...

Nothing special, but you'll notice if you go to my bucket, it's in the PC. Not going anywhere, so don't ask, LOL!

Thanks for the honor TCC. I am very undeserving, but am honored nonetheless. Also, great work on the article, it's quite awesome.

Thanks Tom. What you did was really nice. I'm glad that there are members like you here at TCC. I know it didn't cost you much, but it meant a great deal to me. So, thanks for being so generous.

This is my point exactly. People that choose meaning over value. Youre right, it cost me less than a fast food lunch to get that card, but it means more to you than that dollar value. Much like my appreciation of my HOFers, the value is nice, but the meaning behind them is better. Fantastic writeup and article on you as well.

Well-deserved recognition of a great member of TCC! You deserve it Jeremy. Keep doing what you're doing! Shout out to Richard for a fine job on the article. -Vickie

Thanks everyone. I printed the article off and hung it on the wall in my card corner. I downloaded it to my phone and showed it to the wife. She's not too pleased that I gave Richard a picture of her after having gone fishing, but I think she looks pretty darn cute. She got a kick out of the article though, so once again, great job.

LOL, I did buy them all up. I'm sending them to my family and friends. I will start up the caption contest again. I ran out of cards I wanted to use and haven't had time to look for some more. The summer is also hard to keep things on schedule like that because we are gone alot. So, at least look for me to start it up again in the fall.

I don't see anything there that says, "Custom Member Title". Does everyone have access to that function?

Thanks. Me, my dad, and my wife caught those in Lake Texoma down in Texas. The little picture at the top of the newsletter is cropped from a larger picture that has me holding up a very large salmon I caught on Lake Michigan just outside of Grand Haven, MI. My favorite hobby outside of sportscards is fishing, and I've gotten my wife to start enjoying it as well. So, that's always good.

I don't know if they are doing that anymore. I haven't heard anything, anyhow. But it's a great honor nonetheless. I wonder who is going to get it for April?
