I was digging through some old emails, and saw a convo with my friend Laza-Russ from May 2006 about sportscardrevolution.com.

Anyone remember that? Smile

The original (b*sucks site) was even better, but I think that domain is also lost.

I thought this would be a cool thread, if people posted any original screenshots, graphics, text, threads, memories, etc. from the old sites or HK in the beginning. Just in case some dork (such as huss) decides to add us to Wikipedia. Wink

I had a screenshot from the day we were hacked, but my work computer lost it. Sad

Anyone else care to share?

I love this place. Smile

I = founding father.

Haha.

All started after Beckett revised their rules to accomodate their own sellers and stopped allowing selling on the boards. It began in a chatroom..the rest was history...

It took about 10-14 days of being the only one of 'us' still posting on Beckett when Dan (kid) sent me an email to tell me where everyone escaped to. At that time it was the B-sucks site, but soon changed to the SCR and then we grew and grew and grew. The rest is HK history....

I remember the whole thing like it was yesterday!

Me and damian were talking on AIM about how lame beckett was with their new rules with no selling and no posting ebay links/etc. So we decided to make the beckett sucks site along with a few of us here. Then when an admin/owner of beckett found out about the site, lawsuit was threatened so we changed it to the SCR (sportscardrevolution site) That lasted for a little while but the board itself, the layout, was sort of lame. And I think the name was kind of long. Then I remember damian showing me a sample of this site, and once it was in effect I was the first to join here.

After that its all history Very Happy

Paul invited me to BS, then it was SCR which lead to so many user names with SCR # XX in it and the Viva La Revolution motto. Then one June afternoon SCR was done and HK was born and the hobby hasn't been the same since.

Oh and Paul got stupid and we got shut down for a week which lead to some great duels between the enemy on the beckett boards.

Which we won...don't forget that! Even though we all got banished for 60 years, we still won.


I'm gonna add some history.....

The Beef Boards, practically all the posts were Mac, Dep, me, hussluh, jdc, and mastershake(think sac, sk8er, and a few others would sometimes joined) and we'd just have random beef and lengthy discussions "fights" about what ticks us off. Good times, until there was too much 'Beckett Bashing' in there.
We even tried to bring back the infamous Locklear thread.

I never got banned over there, I just ripped JRSmithCollector a new one at the time.

You can't talk beef board without OJ and ChosenOne either. That board got killed because there were too many threads that lead to fights amongst members that got personal than a place to just vent. HK is better without it

Wow, can't believe I forgot about OJ and ChosenOne.....mainly because OJ had alot of beef LOL...Blame Canada? Wink

and HK could use some more beef, but more of this variety
