I don't know football that well. Can somebody figure out what his set is worth. Maybe we can all chip in and send him the value of his set so he can keep it??? Somebody that knows Carlos could be in charge of holding the money as it comes in. I'm not swimming in money but I'll throw in $25.00

Easy one... $25.00

...and if you found you still had to sell it, then so be it...
But I think each of us would love to help out in any small way we can.

I don't do paypal, but a simple mailing address would be fine. I'd be happy to help also.
Carlos, we don't know each-other but I sense you'd do the same for others. Be strong and laugh whenever you get the chance. Best,
dgf

Carlos, go into debt, pawn off your neighbors t.v.,wash cars on your lawn, do not, I repeat DO NOT sell this set. If you're doing it to buy more cards, I understand.
These doctors and insurance companies can wait.

WOW...this is beyond words. I don't know what to say. Speechless!!!

I must say that I do love this set and would hate to see it go. But this just doesn't seem right to take money and keep the set.


Really...I'm speechless...I don't know what to say.

Thanks

Think of this as the board's collective effort to keep a great set together. That's what we want to see. Paypal info please.

Carlos,

You have been a valuable member of this board for quite some time. From my vantage point, it doesn't seem right that you have to sell the set. If each of us donates $25, I would look at the set as a gift from the members of the board for all you have done.


Regards,


Alan

Guys,

Really I can't do this... The amount that I need would far exceed your very kind donations. SMR on this set is nearly $20,000. Although you gifts would help, I'm not sure that it will get me out of this blackhole. Therefore, I can't guarantee that in a month or two I will be right back where I started from.
