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 Tuesday I 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!
If nobody claims the previous weeks loot, it will be added to what I am offering the next week as well. This week I feature the San Diego Padres. If nobody claims this package by next Tuesday, I'll offer up a second team. If someone claims it before the next Tuesday, they will win the lot of the second team I choose, plus the Padres, for whatever they want to trade me off my want list.
Last week (which was also the first week) featured the Angels, and it was claimed within a couple of hours. I'd love to say that I knew that it would be a success, but quite honestly I was surprised as hell.
