    The Bench Hall of Fame - Primus Member

    With a couple posts this morning - I have hit that magical 10,000 post mark (proving just how much hot air I am full of) which elevates me to the Primus wing of The Bench HOF (10,000 posts/1,000 trades). If my math is correct - the 42nd member to be exact.

    Seems like the perfect opportunity to say thank you to all the great members here. Too many great traders to try and list all of them, but thanks to all of you, my collection (and now my sons collection as well) has grown and will continue to grow exponentially.

    This is the one place I have that when life or work just gets a bit too frenetic, I can jump on here and find a bit of salvation, if only for a minute or two.

    I am looking forward to my next 1,000 trades and next 10,000 posts.

    Thank you again to everyone on the site - it truly is a great community!!

    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader. Please be patient: I love trading, but I don't have enuf time for it, so it takes me a while.

    Check my site: http://www.freewebs.com/frankpell/ for wants and trade items.
    "CMB"'s will be ignored. Sorry.

    10,000 posts/1,000 trades? I'm pretty sure the highest HOF wing I will ever reach is the Beavis Wing which is one level above my current Butt-Head status.

    Congrats on this!

    Any congratulations that invokes Bevis/Butthead is a good one! Thanks. Felt the same way when i started on here - just getting to 100 posts seemed like an eternity.
