New Feature Starting Today: Anyone? Anyone?

I know I probably shouldn't be quoting Ben Stein given my political leanings, but yes, I'm naming my new, ongoing, not-showing-up-at-any-set-time feature after his most famous quote (of the things he said publicly, anyway).

Basically, I have something like 60,000 cards in my trade box (and probably a lot more that I could easily add to it; I haven't gone into the player collection boxes with much ruthless intent yet). So, it's time to do something with these things. I was going to wait until after the first of the year to start doing this (as so to line up with the 2015 Collecting Goals post I've got just about done), but I'm not doing very much at the moment, so let me get started on it now. The PSA 10 Jeter was sort of a "soft opening" on this, though it's probably the most MOJO! MOJO! thing you'll see here.

Here's how this is how this is gonna work:

From time to time, I'll post scans of cards or occasionally, if it's a big lot of cards, I'll write a list of the numbers involved. Sometimes, if it's a very big lot, I'll just count 'em out, take a picture of the stack of cards, and call it a day. (Nope, not writing another proper trade list. Not now, not ever. Too hard to keep up with at the volume I deal with.)

I'll mention if they're available for trade, or if I'd like cash (and if I mention cash, I'll give a price "or best offer").

If you're interested in something, email me and we'll take it from there. Nothing elaborate or confusing, these are just trade/for sale posts with a silly name.

When you contact me, let me know if you'd like to see a back scan, if you care what the serial number is on the card, things like that.

You can also "call dibs" in the comments, but for reliability's sake, make sure you email me first, because this stuff is all first-come, first-served, and I also don't want to lose track of anything you may be interested in.

As I burn through things, I will try my absolute best to make a note that they're gone, but I make no promises there. If you're curious, just ask.

First up are a lot of flagship Topps and Topps Update bronze parallels!

For clarification's sake, since there are dupes of a few of these, and in at least one case (Goldschmidt), I didn't put the dupes next to each other, if you're requesting something, PLEASE let me know what page of cards it's on, and what spot on the page it's in. For example: Page 1, Spot 7 is a 2009 Topps Corey Hart of some sort, so that's what you'd ask for. If by some bizarre chance you'd like all 76 of these cards, then you'd just ask for all 76 of the cards. Easy, yes?

Here we go!

  1. Somewhere a Topps Gold set builder is completely unaware of this post of generosity. Somebody find him and point him in the right direction!

  2. I'd love to work out a trade for both Goldschmidts (Page 5 and Page 7). Since I'm already trying to find something for you for Valverde 2011 All Star Stitches card, will you set them aside for me please. Thanks!
