|Because you deserve it.|
First off let me thank Fuji from The Chronicles of Fuji. He posted somewhere on someone elses rant about Topps 5 Star with the idea that Topps should have started a one star club for those of us mortal card collectors. Screw Topps. I'm starting my own one star club.
Your probably asking yourself how do I become a member of this awesome new club and what do I get?
Well first if you collect anything from anywhere you're already a member. Don't want to be a member that's ok too, you can opt out at anytime. At no time are you to write an essay for me to read, however feel free to post something on your blog, if you have one, or comment on something I post. Second you don't have to spend anything to be a member and I sure as hell don't want you to keep receipts, they're evidence, burn those suckers before the wife sees them!! I do not want references from you local LCS, but if you do have a local LCS that you love make sure you tell the owner you appreciate his business and all the enabling he does for your addiction. And most importantly you may bash or praise any and all card manufactures and their products.
How much does this awesome club cost? $750 a year, I know it's a little steep, but thanks to a large contribution from the Yount Collector, you really should all be followers over there and here if your not already, dues are waived for the first 75 years and then you get the free senior lifetime membership.
What do you get for being a member? You get to download this awesome membership card. You get to bitch about whatever you want. You get to collect whatever sport, set, team, or player you like. You can enjoy the efforts of the entire blogosphere about the hobby(s) you enjoy. You get to participate in contests, discussions, and trades with your fellow hobby enthusiasts. Pretty much everything you enjoyed before this extremely inclusive club, but now with a cool membership card.
We accept anybody and everybody. So come as you are.
Now that you've passed the extensive interview process feel free to get on with your life.
