I'm sure many of you have already had the pleasure to deal with David K. at some point on The Bench. He is a guy that has dominated the leaderboard in trading--he has won 18 Trader of the Month titles and in the All-Time Monthly Trade Totals he has 3 of the top 10 spots, including the #1 position with 212 trades done in one month!

He is also a very generous man. To date he has donated 1570 YSL cards to The Bench charity drive and holds tons of contests giving away free cards. Below is a list of the cards he has given away here in just the past year. The list is amazing and I even added in BV's to show these are some premium cards. I know David is a humble guy (he even requests that any nominations bearing his name for Bench Member of the Year not be included in the final voting) but he deserves his props for what he has done around here in terms of his generosity, trading and being a very positive Bench role model:)

Cards David has given away this last year--

2006 SP Authentic Auto Letterman "K" serial to only 75--$120

Here, here! I'm just thinking of his great contests with amazing prizes... I forgot he's pretty much donated 1/5 of the YSL set. Thank you, David!

I have a feeling this is going to be a VERY long thread!!! I have traded with David K many times and he is one of the reasons why The Bench is the BEST site around!!!!! Awesome list of cards. Thank you for all you do sir.

I have been a lucky winner of two of David's freebees. I have also made
many trades with David, usually to my advantage. This is the #1 trader
on the Bench, by far.

Thanks David.

David K. is a trader all members should aspire to emulate. That's why I nominated David for Bench Buddy of the year. I sure hope he accepts. I wish David all the best for job well done.

1570 YSL cards. That is a staggering number there! Makes me feel a little guilty to charge anything for any of my stuff now!:D

The Bill Gates of the card world! Thanks for everything David. I have won a couple of your contests myself and made at least 1 trade with him as well, so thanks again.
