"I think more emphasis should be paid to "interesting" collections and not just those accumulated by mere financial brute force.
With all the attention paid towards "Going Green" this year, whether it be hybrid cars, solar houses or small carbon footprint living, I think it's time for CGC to recognize oddball registry sets and collectors that have taken the hard road and tried to pull together collections that can't be built just by pulling out a credit card. The registry has plenty of BSD collections, without scans, that just aren't that interesting to look through. What's the big deal about a list of numbers? I say, get imaginative and stop using registry point totals as a measure of a collections uniqueness and intrinsic value. #1 registry sets, especially those owned by dealers, are a yawn. Come on, amigos. Come on Scott and Harshen and Mark. Get with the program and give some recognition to those low point total collections that aren't just accumulations of big number pressed books! Make the Registry Awards Interesting Again!
Go Green! :-)
BTW... I had no idea this would end up on the CGC Chatboards. I was as surprised as you guys! If they want to cut me off from posting on the CGC Boards that's fine. But that has nothing to do with having registry sets.
