Mark (Avsbruins65) Introduction

Discussion in 'Member Introductions' started by avsbruins65, May 15, 2012.

  1. Hello to all fellow collectors, my name is Mark and I am originally from Rhode Island. After serving in the US Army for 22 years I am now a Department of the Army civilian working on Fort Carson Colorado, living in Colorado Springs. Growing up I followed the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, Nordiques and Celtics. Been a fan of these teams since my early years and since there move to Denver in 1995 I am a Avalanche fan. Still follow the Pats, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics. I am a member of many collecting boards and frequent them when time permits. I have been trading and buying cards since 1974 and have over 60,000 cards available for trade or sale. One of these days I will completely catalog them. I have been on eBay for many years and have a feedback rating of 2133/100%. When I trade I always package the cards in a penny sleeve, top loader and team bag, (size permitting). I also ship in a bubble envelope. I consider myself a honorable trader and someone who can be counted on to complete any trade.

    Welcome aboard Mark! We're glad to have you. It also looks like on your first day you've found a flaw with the site. Looks like I never properly resized that Avalanche logo when I uploaded it. :lol: I'll get that fixed, though, as soon as I get home.

    Again, welcome to TCZ. If you have any questions, or would like to suggest something for us, feel free to drop me a PM anytime.
