Open for Trades!

In lieu of searching out everyone else’s want lists, I have decided to do a reverse approach and post cards that I have available for trade.

The way I envision this working is that I will post the cards I have for a specific year and brand, and make them available for trade for 4 weeks. I will update the side navigation bar to show all cards on the trading block, and when they will be off the block.

The cards will be on a first come, first serve basis. If you see a card you want, leave a comment with the card number(s), and I will remove those cards from the “for trade” list. Also, I will not be selling any of these via this blog. These cards are for trade only.

I’d prefer to set your cards aside in a jewel case until say 50 or so cards and then mail them to you, or I can send them piecemeal if you need them ASAP. Please do not send me any cards until you have received yours from me. That way, you are not out anything until you get your cards.

As for my wants, I like Tony Gwynn (Sr.) and would not turn down any Topps prior to 1986 (preferably prior to 1971). That may sound like a lot based on what I will be initially offering, but we can work it out. Just make an offer and I’ll be cool with it. Also, if you’re an established blogger, you can wait until you get the cards and then you can send me something in return based on what your feeling is.

Finally, all cards that are not claimed within the 4 week timeframe will be going into my 1,000,000 Cards for Kids movement. So, you get first crack to complete your want lists, then all the kiddies will be getting these cards.

Enjoy and keep me on your radar.

PS – If you have a specific want (team/player), leave a comment on this post and I will do my best to identify those cards for trade when they are posted.
