I haven't posted all week because I've been sick...headache, sore throat, stuffed up, etc. I'm finally feeling better, so let's not waste any time and bring on.....Trading Thursdays!
I know, it used to be Trading Tuesdays, but I was in bed sleeping all day Tuesday...and most of Wednesday. Thursday actually works out better for me, because my work week is really heavy Monday through Wednesday and lighter the rest of the week. So it's going to be Trading Thursdays from now on.
So...as I've mentioned on this blog before, one of the things I enjoy most about the blogosphere is trading with other bloggers. I don't make it to too many card shows, and it's often times very tough to find the cards I need to complete the sets I'm working on.
I've gotten closer to some sets thanks to the trading I've done, and hopefully I've been to help other bloggers with their collecting goals as well. So I've been thinking for a while about how I can help initiate some trading with other collectors/bloggers that I may not have connected with yet. Of course, I'm certainly up for trading with collectors/bloggers that I've traded with before.
So every Thursday I'll post a collection of items representing a specific team. It will generally consist of mostly cards from that team, but it could also include a media guide, a yearbook, a pack of cards with a player from that team on the wrapper, etc.
If you are interested in it, either comment on the blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, with what you want to trade for it. No reasonable offer will be refused, however it does have to be off of my want list. I need to finish these sets! Trade me a dozen cards, trade me a hundred cards, trade me one card, but help me finish these sets!
I only have a small percentage of my "wants" uploaded. This is a huge work in process, and I am adding new want lists up weekly. I also keep track via a sidebar on my blog letting readers know what lists have been added in the past week. There are also some "junk wax" sets on there that I haven't finished. I know some of you are sitting on some '89 Score, 92 Donruss, etc., and this could be a chance to unload some of it to someone who needs it!
Last weeks lot of Padres and White Sox has been claimed, so this week features the Seattle Mariners.
