**ROUND 2 IS NOW LIVE**
I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be listing 100 "Andre Dawson Auctions" every week starting this Sunday, May 9th. The auctions will start at 8:00 PM EST. They will load every 2 minutes until all 100 are complete.
I plan on listing at least 100 each week through "The Hawks" Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. I'm hoping to be finishing up at the end of that week.
Please feel free to pass the word around to as many people as you would like. The more exposure I can get the better!
I am offering a shipping discount to members of The Bench! You only pay shipping for the first item you win (the highest shipping charge will take presidence). You will pay no additional shipping charges for winning multiple auctions! This is a "per invoice" deal only. You must wait for me to send the invoice and respond back with your Bench user name and I will adjust and resend the invoice. Again, this is a per invoice deal.
Place some bids! Bid them up! Win some auctions!
Some of you may remember the April Fools Day Joke I made about selling off my Andre Dawson Collection. I can promise you this isn't another attempt in hopes to "April Fool" you. It looks like the day I never thought would come is here.
My wife and I found out a week ago that we will be having our first child. Being out of work this past year pretty much depleted our savings. Although my work situation has improved, like for many people it is not as good as it was. I've thought long and hard and decided this is what needs to be done to get us back where we were as soon as possible.
When I told my wife my plans she almost cried. I could see the tears in her eyes when she said "but you love it so much". I think she is more upset about it than I am. She has always been great with me collecting now that I think about it. Although she has used the phrase "playing with your baseball cards" a few times. Everyone knows we don't play with them!
Although I could have NEVER imagined that this day would come and as much as I will miss it, I'm confident this is the right move to make at this time. I've always been an "all or nothing" type guy. Just cutting back or selling some of it would never work for me. Damn OCD!
As of right now all that I will be keeping for sure are items that are personalized to me. Everything else will go the way of eBay or here at home, on The Bench. I would love nothing more than to cut the GREAT members here deals on any of the cards they may happen to need, but the truth is that most everything will be going to eBay for the simple fact that I need to maximize the sales of my collection.
This will not be a fast process as I plan on making it last through Andre Dawson's HOF Induction Ceremony in hopes of feeding the frenzy that comes along with it. At least I'm hoping there is one that comes with it!
I want to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE that has ever traded or sold me an Andre Dawson card. My collection would have NEVER reached what it has become without you folks here and it was nice to have people to share it with. I don't think even Peter (Champs96ws) could have ever imagined how SPECIAL this place would be when he created it.
*As I mentioned this will be a long process, so you won't be getting rid of me any time soon! I doubt I will ever leave this place to be honest. I hope it's around for my child to enjoy!
