I am new to the chip collection "hobby". I spent many years in the baseball card collecting hobby until I left due to many negatives. I would just like to take this opportunity to recognize a person who have gone beyond the call of duty to make me feel welcome in this hobby. #1 is Gene Trimble. Gene has taken much of his valuable time tio talk with me in finding my way in this great hobby. I spent some time while in Vegas talking to Gene at the Fiesta. He took time out of his busy work day to talk with me about chips.Gene never fails to answer my e-mail no matter how many times I bug him! So hats off to a great ambassador of a great hobby. I only hope we can all work to keep it that way. Thank you Gene!!
