    Random Acts of Kindness!

    Random Acts of Kindness
    This is something in today society we just don't see much of anymore. I remember as a kid .I lived in a small town and people were always helping their neighbors. Well here at THE BENCH I see Random Acts of Kindness all the time. And its one of the many things I love about our site. So I decided to start this thread to let all of you who have experienced a Act such as this from a fellow trader. I know alot of the traders who do it ,dont do it for any accolades ,they do it because they love the hobby and the site. So if you have gotten something sent to you out of the clear blue ,and had no clue it was coming, share you experience with us. Looking for recent Random Acts Of Kindness. And a big Thank You to all who support our site daily.
    Randy

    I will start it off with someone who has done so much to help so many traders on this site and that would be hdjstuff .Duane has helped so many of us with our collection through the box breaks he does. He knows who I collect and has sent me some real nice stuff .Duane thank you so much for taking care of us traders. And thanks to Tim aka Tal for the great Rose cards. There are many others who have shown their kindness to me. You know who you are and I appericate you all.

    I thank all of the people that have sent me free cards that I put on my wantlist. Some nicer than others, but it's the thought that counts.

    The_Quarter_Box (AKA Frank) Just sent me two SI magazines from the late 80's. One has a nice article and ad of Rickey Henderson. The other one is real special to me and my family. I would put some scans up, but that would ruin the surprise for my Benchie entry!

    Duane has sent me all kinds of Bradshaw cards, an unopened pack, and even a Sam Perkins Auto that I made a comment about...had no idea they just showed up...great guy...I've tried to talk him in to accepting something in return or at least letting me repay the postage, and he will have none of it...he deserves the highest level of kudos for being so generous...I really appreciate it.

    Ah yes, there have been a number of generous members who have sent me things. One even still remains a mystery to me, although they may have told me they were sending something. Unfortunately my mind is failing me. It's not that I didn't appreciate everything that was sent my way, but I have had so many transactions over the years here and on ebay, they all start to blend together. I'm sorry to say I couldn't recognize everyone by name still.

    I read in the past and continue to read about these acts and feel good to see it happening. Keep up the good work all.

    I have received all kinds of help and free cards ever since I joined 'The Bench'. I never collected cards before I retired. My son had a bunch of cards from the late 80's and 90 stashed in my garage. I decided I would try to finish the sets.
    My quest for that goal led me to 'The Bench', where with the help of all the kind members, I finished up all the sets. Many times with free cards.
    In doing so I became a set collector and really enjoy the hobby.
