A Trade Post For No Reason

A fellow collector asks "do I need a reason??" The answer, of course, is no. Jeff from 2x3 Heroes sent me an out of the blue stack of cards. He is one of the ones that I send out of the blue stack of cards to, so this seems appropriate. Show More Summary

Bargain Blaster

Featuring the familiar One Exclusive Patch Card Inside! I had a $5 off coupon burning a hole in my pocket and finally put it to good use last weekend. Along with my first dip into 2014 Allen & Ginter territory, I also snagged a 2014 Topps Series 2 blaster at a more affordable price. Show More Summary

Understanding Ginter

Trying to come to terms with the latest Topps release. For the second year in a row, I managed to completely ignore the release of the unfortunately named Topps Allen & Ginter's (hereafter referred to as Allen & Ginter, A&G or just Ginter) for several weeks until I just couldn't help myself.

Ozzie #503 Comes to the 503

Another Listia win becomes one of my lower numbered Wizard cards. At this point, I'd probably make a better player collector than a team collector. It's much easier to rationalize a single card pickup here and there, but I've always had a hard time with buying singles because the thrill factor isn't really there for me. Show More Summary

So Long, Topps BUNT

And thanks for nothing. Literally nothing. I gave Topps BUNT a spin this season. Topps BUNT, aside from being bizarrely capitalized like a lot of bad decisions on the internet, is the virtual trading card app from the MLB exclusive license holder. Show More Summary

Two Buck Ducks

And stay tuned for an announcement of sorts. I should probably just start asking people to title their own trade posts here more often. On the suggestion of Too Many Manninghams, who sent over these fine autographed Ducks items out of the blue, I went with the obvious title choice. Show More Summary

Steve D. D-Livers

This is just a reminder that Blog Post Title Writer is still an unpaid position. Fellow blog reader and Listia member (Listian?) Steve D. just exchanged PWEs with me after he was one of the last to grab some cards from my soon-to-be-retired trade bait page. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #431

Why do baseball players wear those miniature jumpropes around their necks, anyway? Who is he? Brett Anderson is a former second round draft pick with the Diamondbacks who was involved in the massive Dan Haren/Carlos Gonzalez trade back in 2007. Show More Summary

I Don't Know... Hee Seop Choi?

Welcome to efficiency. I guess this is what happens when I finally catch up with trade posts. While I was once so young and full of things to write about, I pretty much have leaned on trade posts as a crutch to fuel content for this blog for quite awhile. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #74T

It's time for one of the most famous airbrushed cards of all as we get ready for the second half of the 2014 season. Who is he? Reduced to a goofy image these days, Oscar Gamble was at first a ballplayer and an outfielder who logged an impressive 17 seasons in the majors, including multiple stints with Chicago teams and the Yankees. Show More Summary

A Boatload of Licensed Non-Topps Cards

And they're just Swell. P-Town Tom gets himself another mention here as he recently hosted one of the cheapest group breaks known to humankind. A mere four dollars got me a health stack of cards from various late '80s/early '90s Legends...Show More Summary

All-Star Eve Trade Post

Hopefully, no one will be pitching though a cloud of "cognac". Chunter of the Chipp 'n' Dale blog sent me a wonderful bunch of baseball and basketball cards that I'd like to show off as we get ready for tomorrow night's All-Star Game. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #446

The last man standing of Oakland's Big Three. Who is he? Tim Hudson has been one of baseball's most solid starting pitchers over the last decade and a half. Alongside Barry Zito and Mark Mulder, Oakland's starting pitching staff was one of the most feared in the game. Show More Summary


Injuries are taking their toll. As the saga of the long season continues, it seems like trainers and medical staff are making more on field appearances than the manager at this point. Yadier Molina, far and away the most valuable player of the team, became the latest to go down with a significant injury last night. Show More Summary

Four Cards in Five Words or Less

Minimum verbosity. Inka binka, bottle of ink. Always injured. Two-time All-Star. Best player in the NL.Thanks to 2x3 Heroes for another mighty fine PWE!

Last Call for Trade Bait

Get 'em while I got 'em! I was thinking I wasn't quite getting the response I was hoping for with my Trade Bait link and haven't updated it in awhile. It turns out that part of the lack of response could be that the link has been broke for who-knows-how-long. Show More Summary

Thorzul Group Break Results

Any time you wind up with a serial numbered Chuck Finley card, things are golden. Late in the spring, Thorzul held a group break where he divvied up a bit lot of craziness that he purchased online. I haven't participated in many group...Show More Summary

Trading with Waiting 'til Next Year

Cards were exchanged. Good times were had by all. I'm "celebrating" the first night where it's officially too warm to cool down my dwelling properly, and I thought I'd pull out some more cards to scan and file away. P-Town Tom sent over...Show More Summary

Clearly Amazing

Quality you can see through! This was another Listia pickup, something that I spent far too few credits on for it to be worth it to the seller. Things like this make me feel a little bit bad. Even though he shares space with a couple...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #85T

Oh Mickey, you're so fine. You're so fine, you blow my mind. Hey Mickey. Who is he? Mickey Rivers, or "Mick the Quick" as he was often known, was a speedy center fielder who played throughout the '70s and the first half of the '80s. He also probably had to suffer through a few Toni Basil moments throughout the latter stages of his career. Show More Summary
