    Talking How I found THE BENCH!

    It is interesting how I found The Bench!

    I had been out of cards since after my divorce in 2000 and after my marriage to a great lady who told me to take the time for my hobby, I began looking for people to trade with. I have been with AOL (aka AOHell) since 1994 and began by looking at the AOL Hometown pages. I found Bob D'Angelo's and several other guys who traded here (sorry Bob seemed to be the only one I remember at the time) and about two hours after that I went to the chat rooms and someone told me to look in the newsgroups. I went and there were a crapload of posts. So I grabbed the first one that said something about being friendly and it was a newsgroup post about The Bench. That was like the 10th time I saw the name and said that I had to try it out. Within days, I had made a trade or two and went off to the card show in Atlanta and met Troy. After that, the rest is history.

    So sometimes it takes more than one,

    I've been watching the Topps boards for a couple of weeks and there was a thread that consisted of a bunch of guys who were upset that The Bench site was down. I didn't know what The Bench was/is. Days later, a new thread was started saying that the Bench was back up, and people we're happy again. So I thought I'd check it out. So far, so good. I hope to get to know all of you and hope we can help each other out. --Sami

    Thumbs up

    I've been trading cards for years and someone from another trading group had a link to this site on his home page. I liked what I saw, so I decided to join. I am always looking for new avenues to improve my collection (or to help others out).

    When I was on Beckett, people were always talking about here, I didnt get around to coming here, dont ask me why, but I went to SCF, I was there for about 3 months because they were real friendly, then I got banned for PM spamming(never heard of spamming of PM)big whoop, dont miss that anymore, then I remmembered this board, came here, turns out I like it. I hope Im here for a very long time.

    When I first started online trading, around April this year, I was hit and miss. The first thing I did was type baseball traders in the google search engine. Alot of the pages I got had "The Bench" logo, but I did not know what it was. After doing a few independant trades I ran into David Rea who told me the Bench was a trading group. I ended up joining this and card trading fools, but I seldom go there due to the large amount of traffic that I get here. It was ordained by fate for me to find this place!
