Was one of the only active football collectors on HK back when it started. Was a fun forum in its time.

Welcome back. Still a lot of fun to be had here.

I think a good chunk of frequent posters on this forum used to participate on HK - the basketball collectors especially.

I used to post on HK (Beckett also, but that was ages ago).

Thank you for the welcome. I know i was a day 1 hk member, like #102 or something lol. I remember chrispaulcollector, deekin, bddr i believe just on the top of my head. Dont know if anyone remembered but i was the guy that was like 400 pounds, lost like 200 pounds cause my dream was to be in the military, and my dream did come true. Reason why i left the hobby. I remember posting my progress for you guys on hk lol.

Yep I was on there as stang_crazy also did a lot of trading on there with a lot of great people. Still a member but I left the hobby in late 2012 and came back in 2017 to find it was a ghost town and I ended up here.

yeah, still HK member (same username as here) but, as you said, regrettably it's a ghost town since a long time. Was a great time there though !

Sold a ton of highend stuff on HK. Seemed to be a lot of ballers willing to pay up for rare items. It's a ghost town there now.

I’m an HK original. Same user name. Was also on Beckett eons ago, and newsgroups before then!

The site was fantastic for basketball specifically.

They also smartened up by a separate sub for league talk. That was great. It could potentially send over the countless Jordan/Lebron/Kobe versus threads. Then all the old bitter folks could discredit those guys, and talk about how much more dominant the 60s and 70s guys were!
