Very nice gesture and way to pass on the generosity. I would like to nominate pensauto77 (Brad) because he has always thought about others throughout the years. He has sent me many low numbered Paul Stastny cards and is always on the lookout for more. The best part is he does it from the kindness of his heart and just enjoys helping a fellow collector out with their collection. Another great quality he has is patience, I tell him that one day a nice Skinner card will show up at his door and he just says, "whenever man.....no rush". There are many trustworthy and loyal members on here but I feel that Brad is a great person and should be rewarded or at least recognized for his kindness.Looking to trade for Paul Stastny, Matt Duchene & HOFer Autos.
Total Paul Stastny Cards: 165/720

i’ve had encounters with a ton of amazing collectors and traders on this site that has heloed me with my personal collections over my time on the site. It came down to three amazing members that i have traded with either a lot or they traded in my favor because they knew i would appreciate the card more than they would.
First the runners up, the #1 member would have to be cygnusx1, he had a Galiardi card that my gf had been looking for, for awhile and he was nice enough to hold onto the card for me for a few weeks until i could get what he wanted. #2 and this one was tough, as he deserves it just as much as the winner...Mnum is the second runner up. Mikee has been an absolute class act in every trade we have made, he is a guy who just loves to trade cards so it makes him one of the easiest guys to work a deal with or just chat with!
Alright now for who i think deserves the free card, Tivo32 even though he is a yucky Bruins fan lol. I hsve been lucky enough to work with him on two different occasions and both time he has added two huge pc items to my collections, the second trade was actually eith my girlfriend for my bday present where he took a huge loss on the card just so it could join my Ducks pc, which is why if anyone deserves to be rewarded it would be him.
Also, grest idea potvin! its always nice to see generous members like yourself it reminds me why i love this site and trading in general.

Flyers12 sent me a really nice Gartner Auto HIT to my HHoF Auto collection. Why? Because I needed it and had nothing he could use so he sent it. Here's to some good karma for a great trader. I understand sending a couple base cards or an auto but a HHoF Auto? Really nice.

I hate the Habs.
In 1966 after the Red Wings won the first 2 games from the Habs, the Habs awoke from their coma to beat the Red Wings 4 Straight. Now Roger Crozier won the Conn Snythe Trophy, the first one given to a member of a losing team, but that still did not stop me from throwing a Brick through my Dad's 1964 Zenith Black and White 26 inch TV.
If you were to send me this Gomez card, I would stomp it to death, set in on fire, then bury it.

I second Tivo for the many reasons DnJ talked about and also nominate 87sluggo.
Sluggo has helped out numerous peoples' PCs for free, as well as an all around awesome person to deal with. Great person for the community :)
You could be nominated yourself ;)

Me, I'd turn around and nominate Flopfish for the amazing amount of trivia in his head, he can analyze and answer just about any question on this board and he's always good for a nice comment about someone's new Show n' Tell.
