Posted By: <b>Brian Weisner</b><p><br /><br /> Hi Guys,<br /> I'm getting tired of the board... I don't care what Jim C does or says...<br /> He is a small part of the Hobby... so why do you care what he thinks??<br /><br /><br /> Be well Brian<br /><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>rand</b><p>He is the MOST hypocritical person on this board. he likes to hide behind his computer but doesn't have the balls to call Doug or Kevin S (to pick out his trimmed cards). of course, we should all bow down since he has a "special deal" with joe orlando for his coveted psa 8 collection regrades.

Here's a baseball card. Nothing special, just a card from my collection that I like. It makes me happy, even though it's low-grade. Remember baseball cards? Anyone got any?<br /><br /><img src="http://www.swingbattaswing.com/page13/files/page13_blog_entry85_4.jpg"><br /><br /> <br /><br />-Al

Posted By: <b>John</b><p>Brian I agree, the fact he has his own thread is odd. It's really nothing at this point short of a dance hall where he's constantly crowning himself prom queen over and over and over. I used to think perhaps he really did have a passion about doing something good for the hobby, but at this point itís clear at least to me his intentions are self serving at best.<br /><br />Anyways I agree back to cardsÖI was very jealous to see how many of these Red Hindus you have as I have been going over my 1000+ T206ís and updating the super set list.<br /><br /><img src="http://photos.imageevent.com/piojohn3/ebay/websize/kleinow12.jpg">

Posted By: <b>DMcD</b><p>Feeling the love, Jim?<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/Jan08/Davalillo.jpg"><br /><br />Sorry for bringing it up but that <i>other</i> thread reminds me for some reason of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer sets up his apartment with Merv Griffin's furniture. Jim is just so damn <i>affable</i> in his thread (so long as you don't attack him anyway). It's rather comical and not to be taken seriously in my humble PSA2 opinion. Anyone get the idea he's not in on the joke? <br /><br />Edited to add: Dav scan scabbed off eBay. Don't own the card.

Posted By: <b>Brian Weisner</b><p><br /> Hi John,<br /> I'll be around town for a week, so Beers are on me... PBR is a bit rough, but we can fix that. I'll give you a shout in a couple of weeks and maybe we can hang at Wrigley or grab some lunch or dinner....<br /><br /> More Red Hindu's...<br /><br /> <img src="http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q257/hogan6g/Scan0019-1.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q257/hogan6g/Scan0016-1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Todd Schultz</b><p>breaking out the PBR? When in Chicago, you are obligated to drink at least one Old Style. Makes you appreciate a good beer (draw your own conclusions from that).<br /><br />BTW, while I may not care what Jim thinks, I respect his right to think it (even if I have heard it a time or two before).<br /><br />David, nice Vic D card. Would love to see a run of those over on the post-war side, as Vic was in quite a few issues.

Posted By: <b>Scott Levy</b><p>It seems almost redundant for me to jump on the bandwagon at this point. But I agree that this hobby is bigger than any single individual .. Jim included. <br /><br />I personally don't know Jim, at all, although I've gotta admit that typically people who cause this much of a stir are fairly influential/important or no one would listen in the first place.<br /><br />But I do know Brian W. and not only have great admiration for him as a collector, I consider him to be a pretty fair person and also a friend. So Brian....I got your back bud <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />Regards,<br />Scott<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Steve</b><p> I'm certain a hostile route wasn't Brian's intention of this here post.<br /><br /> The perceived "primadona's" input is effective in that it stimulates topics and manages to bring out our passion for these little pictures. I highly doubt these fellows come across as pompous face to face. <br /> Call it trolling, stubborness or insecurity, -it's just the internet... We're egotists. Most of you guys wouldn't concede an opinion you hold firmly either. It ain't the Bloods vs the Crips nor the Mints vs the Beaters. The mob mentality is mean and cheapens the purpose of the board, yet it continues. If we're unable to police our behavior, IMO after a couple of laughs and digs, the mods should reel us in. <br /> This guano clutters an otherwise hobby-important board. Steve F <br />

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>I understand the frustration of Brian in starting this thread. Believe me...I really do. As a moderator I guess I will moderate this thread. I very much agree with Steve, about 2 posts up, that we should get back to what this board is so good for..and that is talking about our cards, the history of the game, and the players that played it....And not so much of the plastic talk. If anyone has a problem with this thread being locked they can email me and we can talk about it....Otherwise lets get back to the hobby that 99.9% of this board enjoys....the cards we so love....best regards
