Thank you MW1.

I appreciate the compliments. I also find Vincecarder's analysis along with
(I believe) a 'delgadofan' interesting. I don't think a lot of people have put a
lot of stock into vc's analysis maybe because the cards are modern and the
audience is primarily a vintage card collecting group. I could be wrong though.

People that know me not just from the hobby end know that I am very very
detail oriented as well as analytical. Not a good speller or writer though.
HeeHee. I won't go into more details on a message board on my life. It's
boring poop anyhow.

I do have detailed analysis on red man cards. Most of the analysis was
the result of determining what to buy for my inventory. The analysis grew
do the inconsistencies I found with Psa and cert#'s, grades, accuracy,
and other related facts. Some came by accident after getting hosed
a few times. I've taken a back seat and stopped commenting on message
boards on a lot of stuff. Two reasons - The constant negativity hurts the
hobby and second - most people don't want to hear it. So for me it is
just have fun in the hobby and complete my sets - which reminds me
when are you getting me my cards I need!!!!!

I do find it interesting that due to your argument with botn last night
all is now good in Psa land in the minds of some on the Psa boards.
Interesting...

I also could of predicted this happening between you and Greg. I saw
it coming. It's unfortunate and what's done is done. I think it's best
to let it go for both of you. Just my .02 cents.

i agree with MW1...we don't often thank enough guys like Aconte and others who do the painstaking research and being concerned enough to pass it on to fellow collectors.

I have to echo Grillo's and MW1's comments. Aconte is one of the most consistently objective posters here and on the CU boards. Whenever I see a Redman card on Ebay I smile and wonder if he has it already. Keep posting Tony and try to broaden your horizons

Yes, Aconte does make a lot of informative posts. Another reason why I check posts here from time to time.
