A small thanks of appreciation to Jeff at 2x3 Heroes

As most can probably relate, life often times takes over and we get backlogged on completed trades and the packages start to pile up. A week or so ago, I received an unexpected package from Illinois. I basically have a good idea of what trades and online purchases are coming in, but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what this could be. When I opened up the package, there were a few cards inside and a note from Jeff at 2 by 3 Heroes apologizing for not checking my wantlist on an earlier completed trade (Sorry for being too lax for posting the results of that trade). The included cards were a couple of '14 Topps Golds and '13 Gypsy Queen Minis that I had previously listed on my wantlist.

The cards were beside the point. From my years of online trading, it's been my experience that a trade is made and that is the end of it with that trader until the next time. For Jeff to go out of his way and re-check my wantlists and send something out "just because", well I am definitely not used to that. One of the things I have realized since I have started this blog and reading other blogs is that there are really a lot of good people out there who collect cards for the pure hobby aspect of collecting and are always glad to help out other collectors without a second thought. I would like to thank Jeff and other collectors like him. You guys definitely make the hobby much more rewarding.

  1. My pleasure. I am trying to not be a hoarder collector. If it's not something I really want, it's useless in my collection. Especially when I can find someone that really needs it. So I would rather give it to them. It's a win-win for everyone.

    So keep your want lists up to date, people. And then make sure I have your mailing address. :)
