Default But seriously. . . .

are there really folks who get excited about the PSA Achievement Medals? Like grown-ass men I mean. Seriously. Maybe I'm missing something here.

Steve - I have respect for you just from reading your previous posts, but 'grown-ass man' is a phrase that should be left to those that are not...it has been my experience that those are the ones who use it the most often.

I'm guessing you are better than that. - oh, and I agree with you about Achievement Medals the new first cousin to the participation trophy.

I got a PSA Participation Award.
Does that count?
Kinda “cut your own ribbon out of a sheet of paper” thing.

I wouldn't care if it wasn't for the thousands of dollars in cards they're giving out to promote it on social media.

What you should be asking is do actual men use corny, juvenile terms like "grown-ass"?
What's next? Are you going to ask what individuals on here are "keeping it real" with their collecting?

Intelligent post Steve...

Only facebook groups that put "keeping it real" in their title are worth a damn.

I have found it is not generally a good idea to rain on someone else's parade.
Registry is fun for a lot of folks.
