Havem't been on here much. Seems the autograph section has become a shell of its former self so I just haven't felt like posting. I think the proliferation of Facebook groups has unfortunately killed a lot of independent forums like this one and plenty of others (and has had a giant negative impact on the hobby as well).

Anyways, everything to round out 2018. Easily my best year in this hobby: I ended up getting close to 1500 items signed myself (1476 to be exact), plus picked up another 300-400 in trades, purchases, pack pulls, and gifts. I had my biggest single month (270 in August), two-month span (528 in July/August), and three-month span (767 in June/July/August), and a record long streak of daily mail successes (25 delivery days from September 13 to October 12).
