 I would like to propose an idea that I talked to another member here about the other day for quite some time.

I think we should form a group of collectors who are willing to go to major MMA events in their local area and pick up items for other group members, whoever picks up the items would sell them to other group members at or very close to the cost to buy and ship them.

I know a lot of people here already do this and mucho thanks to them for doing it!!!! but it would be freaking awesome if we could double of triple the # of people who do. When the UFC goes to England, Australia or Europe they almost always do a local version of the event poster *rare*, having connections to those would be great and I know just from the UK guy's thread that they would like a reliable way to get hooked up with stuff from here in the states too.

This idea also comes from my intense hatred of the way aseenon runs theufcstore.com, it kills me to send my hard earned dollars to them and i'm sure some of you guy's who got dicked around with on the Rio's can agree too.

If your in just post what area you can cover. We could probably use 5 to 10 guys for Vegas or Cali, so don't be afraid to double up on the same area. If a bunch of events go by in your area you haven't gone to one I guess you would be out, but we'll deal with that on a situational basis. I know we all have lives that trump this poster collecting game.

I'll edit this first post ever time there is a new member.

So who wants into the poster mafia?

1. chip guy - Minnesota 

2. Coop - Indiana and sounding area 

3. billy bufflo - the great province of Quebec 

4. kimuralock - CT (if ever) and New England 

5. aces taylor -  Seattle-area, maybe Portland too! 

6. RitchieGreaser - San Diego, Los Angeles and some of Vegas too. 

7. fightpimp - NYC and Boston 

8. Jeepdog - Florida and where the airplains will take him! 

9. Gem city - Ohio. 

10. Rew96 - Alberta 

11. Dawggy - DC metro area

12. thegreatpigeon - UK/western Europe

13. Dino -  Chicago maybe St. Louis and Milwaukee

14. bigbubbano - NYC/Boston maybe Canada.

15. aznbala -  Portland and Seattle

16. jadawg69420 - Texas!!!!!!

17. JKING - Omaha, NE (if ever)

18. Malcolmdogg - Toronto area and Montreal

19. Mayhem13 - Ohio and local stuff

20. ricksongjj - Ohio and anywhere else he can!
 

21. bongwater7654 - Boston

I go to a lot of local shows but the big shows don't come my way to often either... hopefully when one does the stuff will be sought after and the guy who always takes can give back big time! It's still good to have someone in every state, province and region.... maybe not Kenya Africa but someone in Sweden would be huge right now!

I'm down for the DC metro area. UFC on FX 3 is coming back to my alma mater (GMU) in May, after being at the Verizon center in DC in october. Seems more events will be coming here from now on. Once NYC legalizes, I'll be heading up there as well.

I'll do it, but don't really want to for big orders. There's times were I just don't have the cash to front unless it's given before. I've traded and bought posters for board members here.

I'm here in Chicago, but travel to St. Louis frequently also because of family. Milwaukee isn't far either. I attend every major org that comes here or surrounding states.

 I vote Chip as the Treasurer of the Mafia, he will keep track of the cash that we all send to him and then disburse it to the buyer before the event so they "have cash" and don't have to font it.

Since Ohio is covered, plus I always have a hard time graphing/buying at big events cause of how strict they are with where media is at all times..

I can offer up all NE ohio local events...not sure if anyone is interested but there are local shows up here with UFC vets Forrest Petz, Jeff Cox, Jason Dent,Dan Bobish and current UFC fighter Stipe Miocic all the time..and the posters are always cheap at shows Phone Post

If you are a well established member here i.e. blue name, multiple smooth trades and a solid ebay track record you should always be fronted the cash by the person wanting to buy.... unless it's a really new guy like thegreatpegion (nothing against you) the new guy should front the cash and earn his stripes by picking up stuff for members.

Sound cool?
