    Back with a heavy heart

    My name is Chris but the football collecting community knows me as Chalkitup21 or Chalk. I've been a member of the forums for 7 years but have been away for about 3. I used to be a moderator and an avid trader, collecting since I990. About 2 years ago we have what they called a "thousand year flood". Almost the entire small town I lived in flooded with many of us losing almost everything we owned. My house got 4 and a half feet of water and I lost 50% of my sports memorabilia and about 95% of my card collection. My Malcolm Jenkins collection which I am in the Super Collector HOF for is gone aside from a handful of cards. Collections I had built since a kid were completely wiped out including collections I was building for my kids. I did however manage to escape with my Cameron Jordan collection fully intact and even though I am just getting back into the forums, I had already been adding more to it. I plan on submitting my Cameron Jordan collection for Super Collector status soon and I look forward to meeting new people and enjoying the hobby I have for so many years.

    Chalk- Welcome back to SCF. I am sorry to hear about the misfortunes you and your neighbors suffered. I wish I had some Jenkins cards or Jordan cards you could use, but I just checked and I have nothing of either player.
