caught up!

I am officially all caught up over here. As you well know, my place in the hobby has slowed considerably. For the past month or so, I have all but completely neglected my miscellaneous stacks of cards here (with the sole exception of stuff I sold on eBay) and it got, well...a bit out of hand. Cards everywhere, for different purposes, reasons and whatever else. I took yesterday as a 'catch up' day and sort through everything. I had stuff like doubles (which some turned out not to be doubles), cards for people who I contacted but got no response from (I tend to pull cards before I contact someone about their wantlists), and cards in boxes that I thought I wanted to do nothing with. Like I said, a bit of everything. I sorted, checked, condensed, put away...all very good things.

Now, with all that said, is there anyone else that needs 2011 Topps and 2011 Heritage? I would really like to clear out some of this excess before my next project, which I'll talk about in a minute. So please, if you have a want list for anything 2011, let me know and I'll see what I have. That includes all base cards and inserts from 2011 series 1, and a good stack of Heritage. I didn't chase any of the inserts from series 1, so they are all up for grabs (and I have many). In return I am really looking to finish up my Heritage set but if you don't have any that I need or to spare, I'll definitely think of something but I would really like to clear some space over here.

Next- the project. I have seen many of you post up trade bait and I am going to do the same...with a twist though, and some input from you guys. First, how it will be done is by division. I believe I will post up the division on either Sunday or Monday (which ever I get time to do), try and work deals out in the week and have the cards shipped on Saturday. Much easier for me to ship on Saturdays. Now, what I need from you. What do I include in these posts? At first I thought just relics and autographed cards but then while sorting yesterday, I noticed I had some good stuff that didn't have writing or a jersey on it. Stuff that's numbered, refractors, shiny (from a non-shiny set), short-prints, etc. YOU tell me. Tell me what you want to see in a trade bait post and I'll do my best to see what I have available. Then, once the deals I am talking to some of you about and any future ones about the 2011 stuff are done, I'll start posting the trade bait after hearing your feedback and putting the cards together.

So, if you are interested in either trading or getting some more 2011s to finish up a set, let me know and we'll make a deal!


  1. I'm definitely looking for some 2011 Topps base and inserts. Let me know what you would like in return. My wantlist can be found at http://cardboardconundrum.blogspot.com/2010/10/want-list.html

  2. I'm looking for both Topps base and inserts and Topps heritage. I'm especially looking for the cards on my want list (for my set) and the following Topps base inserts for my brother:
    20, 40
    13, 38

    If you have any of those, shoot me an email!

  3. I want to see it all! The shiny, the numbered, all of it! hahaha

  4. First of all, I would be happy to take any of your Cleveland Indians off your hands. I am interested in inserts and base cards alike. As for posting, I am interested in seeing what all you have. Let me know what you think of sending me your Tribe cards. I have a new email address since I last traded with you though. It is tim_gretchen_marriage@yahoo.com. Look forward to hearing from you.

  5. I need Heritage and I'll send you a note tonight about what I need. I'll be happy to work out a deal.

    Meanwhile, I sent some cards to you on, I think, Monday. Hopefully you got them or will by tomorrow. Many thanks!
