    Sold my collection...getting out of collecting...

    ...no silly not my Mark Brunell collection, but this set (below). Since 2005, I have bought and sold 100s from the 2004 SP Legendary Cuts Significant Fact Memorabilia Set which are all serial #1/1. Although each card is indeed a #1/1, the print run for each card was anywhere from 5 to 99...

    Happy to say, that I accepted a Job offer to work for COMC. I start Tuesday!!!!

    Brian, Please pass my concerns along to COMC's hierarchy. In less than a week it will be October and COMC is still screwed up beyond belief...I had over a hundred different searches before the problems with Beckett happen. At this point, neverly SIX Months later, less than 1/2 of the searches...

    Why I Will NOT Accept Another Trade Involving PWEs

    Honestly, the only time PWE should EVER be used is if the card is EASILY replacable by the sender! Otherwise, opt for a bubble mailer for protection.

    Happy to say, that I accepted a Job offer to work for COMC. I start Tuesday!!!!

    The site is still a huge mess right now...what's the honest/realistic time frame for all cards to be correcfly id'ed??? Searching for specific cards/insert sets is impossible right now.

    Best card chatter these days

    Wow...everyone has hit most of the key points of the sites listed so far. Blowout - flame/bullying/troll heaven. FCB - mainly baseball SCF - decent for trading, but not much in the way of discussions CU - 90% talk on graded, unopened and wrestling cards. TheBench - used to be my goto for "card...

    eBay non paying buyer

    Leave the "positive" feedback (ie: "buyer did not pay") BEFORE closing out the non paying case. I keep forgetting to do that as well. It helps just a bit when you realise the buyer has a history of non paying.

    I offer you fair market value for your collection... do you sell?

    To answer the OP's main question, you have see what your TRUE intention of your "PC" is. If you honestly enjoy what you collect AND are financially secured, then it's a simple "NO". If you ever elvaluate/re-evaluate your interest level in your PC OR money is tight or in need, then I would...

    What happened to this card? What is causing the damage?

    Just recently sorted my cards and came across this: Here's the before scan - about 2-3 years ago: Here's the NOW scans/photo!!!! What happened? The damage is underneath the surface of the card!!! Card is in a penny sleeve and a correct size toploader stored in a box along with other cards...

    Should I just do it?

    I'm not much of a grader - having never submitted anything to get graded, so I would just wait it out and get one off ebay (and outbid mrmopar, of course :) )

    Some dufex goodness that came in today

    Duflex technology back in the mid 90s was the BOMB! Football had many set with duflex that are still some of the most eye catching!

    Anyone ever just want to walk away from collecting?

    Walk away -never! But I did loose a bit of interest for a month or so after my player got benched back in 2003. However, when that happened (benchiing and subsequently traded), more cards surfaced and I was quickly back in the game. Since then I love getting each addition as much as the next...

    Beckett Marketplace is a joke

    Burbank comes up a lot. PROS: Massive inventory with lots of hard to find items. CONS: Older stock (90s-early 2000s) has been there for a decade. In addition, most of their items use stock photos or NO photos at all! Also, getting card specifics from their customer service is next to...
