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 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!
This week I feature the Chicago White Sox. However, nobody claimed last week's lot of Padres, so if someone claims the White Sox lot, they will get the Padres lot as well.
So here's what up for trade this week:
1996 Collector's Choice Tim Raines
1976 Topps Jerry Hairston
1980 Topps Ralph Garr
2004 Topps Opening Day Frank Thomas
2005 Topps Update Orlando Hernandez

2009 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts Jim Thome

If you are interested in trading for all of this, either leave a comment or email me at email@example.com with what you wish to trade. First person to contact me wins the entire package of White Sox and Padres.
Thanks for reading and let's trade!
