  1. 2011 Happy New Year and another season ended.

    It has been a fun place to be here at SCF. I have met some really amazing traders and the fun hasn't stopped.

    The industry has gotten complicated, less products from numerous brands, faked patches, overpriced quad cards, the whole nine.

    I've kept it real over the years of collecting. I still take any and all Minnesota Vikings. I take my trading very seriously and I strive to just make deals without thinking of values according to Beckett and what not. Not that I am saying ...
