1956 Topps wants...

This has been my favorite set to build over the last few years and while I was going slow and steady, the last few months I decided to kick it up a notch and well.... I am down to pretty much just the high dollar cards at this point... in the last year or so I have been able to hit some pretty nice card shows and these are fun to look at and purchase in person..... not sure if i have even done any trades to build this set but I will put the list out there...btw I do have a number of doubles of mostly common players so if you are interested in any 56s.... let me know and we can work out a deal....

1956 Topps: 5 8 20 30 33 79 101 110 113 130 135 146 150 166 200 213 251 260 292 293 324 

seriously how can you not like a set featuring action drawings of an American League pitcher beating out a wild throw to first base, just one of many great action pictures in the set.  I will try to post some more of the great cards as I get a chance... all of them will be up for trade.... yep you can trade for this gem right here!!!

The Sideline Sweetie, Pageant Beauties, and oh Bourdain


Hey-Oh!! Been a while since I posted so I figured what better way to return than to post a few 2014 Ginters as a way a saying I have a whole bunch of base to trade.  I need to get a bunch of these out to better homes. I would have just stuck with posting the lovely ladies in this years set but I have noticed over the last month or so, a number of posts of people admiring cards of the traveling chef Anthony Bourdain.  And to gloat about my having one of his relic cards.... which I suppose could be traded for the right offer....yeah you may need to bring the heat to get that one....  Just let me know which base cards you need.... outside of Tanaka and Abreau I should have plenty  of them to trade--sorry none of those 2 guys to trade.  And yeah Jenny Dell is quite swell.  It seems NESN likes to hire some awesome female talent and I would be a strong supporter of every Ginter set having at least one former NESN babe in the set.... I nominate Heidi Watney for next year!!  

Just let me know what Ginter base you need... or minis I suppose... I have lots of them as well if you want to work out a real trade there.

Shillin' for a chance at a '54 Duke Snider

If it gets me an extra chance at winning the 1954 Duke Snider at $30 a week habit, then heck yes I will pimp out the site!!!  So go on over to $30 a week habit and comment for a chance to win an awesome card!!!!

Did I mention you really should go over to $30 a week habit and get in on the action? Well do it!! You won't be disappointed!!

Since we are on the subject of 1954 Topps cards I might as well show off the 3 I have to trade....



I have 57 cards in the set so far.... still no where near enough to do a list of needs yet...but getting close....  so let's work out a deal for some commons!!!

I traded some Braves for some 1964 Topps off the ole want list....

One of the many joys of collecting cards is the occasions when you get to add another fellow collector to your circle of traders, and today I feature my haul from my first trade with one fellow collector and blogger.  In what I guess is a rare trade of vintage for modern, I sent a pile of Braves to Johnny's Trading Spot, including a bunch of Ginter minis--- I know who could have guessed--- for this nice collection of 64's from my wantlist.  
 I have to say that while none of the names are big, though there is one of those super cool topps all rookie team trophies, these are in really nice condition, something that many of my 1964s don't have.

As a set builder who has a long way to go with this set, I really dont have anything profound to say about any of these cards other than to say they all are very much needed and they get me that much closer to finishing the set.  Thanks for the great trade Johnny and hopefully we can pull off another one sometime soon.  

I know I have lots of folks out there to trade with....so let me know if you want to pull the trigger on a trade.

Let's make a deal!!!!
