Collectors are competitive by nature, but.... (Sat May 12 05:33:57 2001
There are also a lot of nice people in this
hobby. Sure, it's kind of a thrill to be bidding
against someone in the last minutes of an eBay
auction. It's also a kick when you manage to win
that pretty little piece of acetate after a hard
fought battle. But most people I've met in the
hobby are willing to help you out if they can.
With a few exceptions, the majority of cel
collectors haven't been fully consumed by the
dark side. :)
I don't know how many times a stranger has sent
me an email after finding one of my wishlist cels
on a retailers site. I've also seen many people
back off from bidding on auctions, because
another collector they know is bidding for a
wishlist cel. I try to do the same when I can.
The comradery within the cel community is what
keeps me in the game.
