Default The Good Guys of BO comp - V2

Some may remember a comp I did a fair while back which was aimed at focussing on the good deeds people do for each other around here. Basically, I am looking for people to post about something that someone has done for you that is over and above the normal day to day deals and actions of the boards.

For example, some may have sent you a PC card for free, or may have pointed you to an auction for a card you have been hunting for a while, or just may have been a great person to talk to!

I will choose a winner from all the posts over the next few days and send a card to both the poster and the person they are posting about!

Just a way to look at the positive parts of the site again!

Big shoutout to drob50 for contacting me via pm for a TC Jonas Valanciunas rookie roll call auto /5 without his help I would have never imagined I would get this close even though I am still 1 card away from it's completion but in my mind it's already done. I hope your knee is treating you good buddy! and you were right they do look nicer in hand then in scans.

Definitely going to Nino_013. Dude has been huge helping me with my Melo PC. Even though he collects Carmelo he has kept an eye out for me and pointed me in the direction of rare cards I need even before he has them. Honestly can't thank the dude enough. He has been awesome and turned into a great friend from it as well.

Also definitely gotta be santosdegollado. He has been collecting longer than me and had some melo cards that I still needed. He agreed to sell them to me to help me try and complete my chase. Huge thanks and shoutout to him for that. He also collects melo and was willing to short his PC to help mine out.


There have been a few others helping me, but they definitely went above and beyond. My melo collection wouldn't be anywhere near what it is without those two

Drob50 is a great guy and was willing to bend over backwards helping me complete a super high end deal in his native Australia.

Alex Lazarevich is another great member. He always gives it straight, hooks you up with extra PC cards and ALWAYS takes the time to respond to posts and PMs and answer questions regarding anything in this 'hobby'

3 quick individual posts...

mrlaker --> was looking to sell the cavs in a 12 box case select gb and he told me a story about how he got the redskins in 2 fball nt breaks and was given great offers like me...
basically he convinced me to keep them and think about the positives outweighing the negatives and how id be kicking myself if i sold them...

long story short out of the blue helped me out and told me his opinion

78yankees --> i asked him about 2 days ago if a shumpert new select auto was ft/fs
knowing i pc'ed shumpert he said he would send me the card no prob askin me for my addy

well appreciated and so not necessary but very thankful and nice deed

lastly,

drob50 --> posted on my thread when i was looking for distinctive ink prestige auto sets that he had the gordon hayward... i didnt have any pp at the time and could only trade and he offered to send me for free and asked for my addy

so unnecessary and very appreciative once again....

thanks all 3 of these members

I'm going to mention Derek (dmogull)!

He held a comp a little while back that I happened to win. The prize was huge, including Rose and MJ GU's, some other individual cards and heaps of base sets from releases I never got to see (prior to me getting back into the hobby)

Even though I am in Australia, he refused to accept any money to help with the extra postage and when it arrived I saw that it cost him $50 to send! WOW!

Very generous!

Xarzy, Knicker Please and Fraser9698 are 3 guys i consider friends and great members of this forum. From the start, they have been and are always available to offer advice, opinions and help when/if needed. This won't win the contest, but who cares. They have helped me in numerous ways and i have and continue to enjoy their friendship...Also, BO member Ibsa, although a fruitcake (j/k) hooked me up w a huge pc card a ways back and when he's not being a clown, we have some good convo's and dude is a good guy....*Special shout out to onlythefinest. He sold me one of my "I never thought i could get this card in my wildest dreams" card. He had a chance to sell it for more, but he knew how much i wanted it and he didn't take advantage of that. Rather, he appreciated my being a true collector and fan of this player/card and sold it to me...He remains a good friend to this day.

Awesome!

aww to kind man! I love all my aussie brothers on the board! they are the most laid back, funny, honest collectors, I truly love them all! Drob50 of course, he's sent me all kinds of cool stuff like cards, vegemite, and best of all tim tams! and of course all kinds of awesome dominator safe swag! Khouzza also before i had EVER spoken a word to him messaged me about a card he wanted to send me for free! great people!! my other aussie boys who are great guys include crackberry, petro, onofrio, aussielaker, gohansmy, brentus777, karlsta26, motiv8dan, 2011postman, tab1980, shaun, kiwi, heafy...probably more sorry if i missed you! Can't speak highly enough of the aussies man, they truly are great members - and if you ever get a chance to do a deal with one of them, don't hesitate just because they are down under! and i am ALWAYS available to be the middle man in a deal like that if any one is worried about it.

as far as the US members, my boy gonygo - prob my best friend on the forums, we shoot the #@#@#@#@ all the time, and actually meet up and hit up some knicks at MSG...plenty of good guys here tho, sesmarine04, xarzy, randomcards, nateadams02, jbmets95, Chitown_85, penny1fan, johncaso....so many more good guys, i could name 50 more - those are just off the top of my head and im sure i missed a couple!

so if i have to pick ONE id go with, and its hard, gonygo for US (only because i've actually hung out with him lol) and AU to mix it up from Drob (because he's the obvious choice and definitely the man) i'll go with Khouzza for the hookup without having EVER spoken to me!

CrazyMJ helped me track down the Orlando Johnson TC 1/1 Black Auto I've been searching for for months...

And SPAuthentic84 bought me a frozen lemonade for my half birthday. What a guy.
