Wow, It's been a week already?
Well, it's another rainy Thursday at the Swing And A Pop-Up headquarters. I have to work this afternoon through the evening so excuse the hurried nature of this post. I'm putting this together while I'm getting ready for work.
So what's a better way to lift up the dreary doldrums of a rainy day than with some trading!
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 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 '88 Score, 92 Leaf, etc., and this could be a chance to unload some of it to someone who needs it!
This week I feature the Brooklyn/LA Dodgers.

The picture on the card shows him in a Red Sox uniform, however the Dodgers logo is on the card. It doesn't say what team the swatch is from.
