For everyone asking "Is there anyone..."?

SCF has a tool for that:
http://www.sportscardforum.com/scf/location/page/1

Type in the city and do a search and you'll likely come up with a bunch of names. They may not all collect hockey, but at least you'll have a list to start from.

ANOTHER idea... find a friend who is in your town, but isn't on SCF and get them on SCF!

Up Up Up.

Never know how long this strike might last (could be very short). If you get a trade in early, you can have a high chance at winning some packs!

i dont think that tool works very well. I searched my city,state and no one exists it came back. Which obviously isnt right because im pretty sure im not dead yet. But just searching by city and not adding the state i came up with 4 other people.

Its text sensitive.

for example, let's say someone lists their state of NY instead of New york.

If you do a search for new york.. guess what? The person who says NY doesn't show up.

The same applies in reverse. If you search for NY, only people who put NY will show up. anyone who puts New york won't.

Its not perfect, BUT if you really want to find someone, you can. we are working on making it better. This is a relatively new tool

Time to get those trades going. Remember, post a photo of the cards traded and who you traded with from SCF! If they aren't a member, sign them up! We love new members!

Didn't know I needed a picture but thank goodness I posted a thread with a photo of the cards I traded earlier (http://www.sportscardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1414241).

I can assure you though, I wouldn't lie about a 25,000+ card deal. He took them off my hands in exchange for a bunch of supplies I needed. He only had 2 packs of top loaders on hand. A bunch more will be delivered when he gets them.

Oh, well, lol.

Your packages of cards were mailed this morning! With all the backlog, I hope that you get them soon.

Also, it turns out that I had one extra pack of Franchises, so one of you got a bonus. I don't know who though. :confused0024: It was just in one of the packages I prepared last night, but I didn't put in addresses until this morning when I took the video of the randomization.
