[QUOTE=jimssouvenirs;3538081]Glad someone else said it before I had to :)!

I know, though, that unfortunately around here it does NOT go without saying.[/QUOTE]

Sadly you're right :(

It's not so much the pc teams that I am thinking of, as much as the random teams.

Wow to think people are already trying to sell slots and sell cards, unreal.

DannyShakes 10-25-2012 10:43 PM

To be honest with you after seeing you doing this awesome gesture I opened a box and prime and have away every hit of my box in a contest. I just gave away a $105 box I would be pissed if I saw him turn around and sell them cards but it just happen to be he called the Ronnie Hillman so I doubt that's leaving him lol

Nobody has tried to sell slots and cards yet. One person tried to buy a slot to this, but that is all so far. And some people posted about giving things away and having me mail them to someone else, but since I am not charging anyone for postage, I'm not really into it. And after seeing some things posted here, I winted to nip all this in the bud before an issue arose that would make me regret doing this in the first place.

If I get in, it'll be tucked away with all my gifts I was given. Even if I got out of cards I'd keep the gifts. Great gesture here.

such an awesome gesture!!!

There is another free break going on hosted by Houdini. Here: [url]http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/baseball/388780-houdinis-free-2012-bc-box-group-break-random-team.html[/url]

He is the first person to ever do a free group break on this forum that I am aware of and it's terrific that he is doing it again. Great job by him.

Have you ever sold a card out of your pc? (yes or no) -No (Most likely will in the future for various reaseons)
Have you ever given a card away? (yes or no) - I give away free base cards sometime in my ebay auctions. I don't typically add anything above base cards because since I'm still getting back into the hobby I value some of the "worthless" inserts a little more than I should:)
Have you ever joined a group break? (yes or no) - Yes

How long have you collected for? - Started collecting in 1993 when I was 5 and continued till I was about 14 in 2002. Recently started back up!:D

Is there anything else you'd like to add to assist us in making our decision? - Thanks for doing this! I always appreciate when people can step back and realize the joy of giving back! Whether that's volunteering at schools,food banks, church or even to members here, often times that joy of giving back greatly outweighs the joy of receiving. So even if you don't select me, I appreciate you doing this for the great bo.com community and hopefully everyone involved has a good time!

Have you ever sold a card out of your pc? (yes or no) - No. The only way I would sell my PC cards is if I got desperate for cash.
Have you ever given a card away? (yes or no) - Of course I have. So, yes.
Have you ever joined a group break? (yes or no) - No, but not because I haven't wanted to do so.
How long have you collected for? - Off and on since I was 5-6 years old
Is there anything else you'd like to add to assist us in making our decision? - Simply put, I've never been a part of a group break and it would be fun to finally be part of one. Plus, whatever cards I ended up getting would stay in my collection and not ever be seen listed on eBay unless:
1. The card could fetch enough coin to take a trip to visit my family down south.
2. I ended up with a PC card that someone else could use to finish his rainbow.[/QUOTE]

I've been struggling to decide who to give the last slots to. There is a person that I want to include, so I thought of a different way to add a slot without using a slot. So Ilovethelakings (everett) I have decided to give up my random team, and give that to you. Because you've been a good friend to me, and I want you in this.

Pretty sure this is some of the nicest gestures I have seen in a long time. Maybe since I last watched pay it forward.

Glad to see all the generosity going around the forums this month. Especially with the holidays coming up.

Everett just won my free box break tonight, lol talk about luck!

hxcdavidjones 10-26-2012 12:12 AM

If I ever come by enough money to do something like this, I would. When I get my severance pay from getting hurt in the Army, and my disability from the VA I will. I know I have not really established a reputation here, but I can only hope to take on positive role such as the OP and many of the members on this site. I hope everyone has a great break and tons of fun! Congrats to the members selected and the members who get selected to participate!
