Hey All,

sorry for the delay in responding, I've been out of state.

The backstory is that I was able to get in touch with the Atlanta champion Jeremy Tomashek and was able to work out a deal to buy his trophy and a few other items.  I've had this trophy for over a year and I was trying to get every last NWC item for quite some time but now I just want to consolidate my collection down a bit since I have tons of items.

I plan on selling most of my NWC items (some really rare unique stuff in there) except my grey cart and some select items I want to hold onto.

The backstory on this trophy is that the winner had it and held onto it for a couple decades.  Then when I worked out a deal with him I ended up buying his trophy.  These are estimated around $1.5-2k right now but since there aren't many sales it's hard to figure out a price point.  I bought the trophy directly from Jeremy and have held it in my collection ever since.  I'm not quite sure what else there is to say about this piece other than it's an awesome part of gaming history and every trophy is a unique item.

If any of you are interested or looking for specific rare NWC items just let me know.  Ultimately I'm looking at starting a family and I need to clear out some stuff.  I'm just holding onto my favorite games and most homebrew/repros for those that are curious.  I've also been playing more games as opposed to hanging around the forums on NA.  So yeah, I'm more a gamer at heart than a collector but I'm still a big collector.  I'll try to clean up the gaming room a bit and take some photos for you guys.  It's pretty bad ass I must say :-)

So I hope this trophy goes to a nice home where it will get a lot of love and care like it has gotten from me.  Let me know if any of you have any more questions.

Now I've got even more questions. Haha. When did you get in contact with him? How? Did you just start looking up champions on Facebook? So many questions haha. Still a cool valuable piece. Crazy to see even a picture of one
