2014 ginter wants.... and anyone going to the national convention????


I am slowly getting my lists of what I still need together.  As I get them together I will list them on this page, meanwhile I might as well scan in some more trade bait...  A nice Choo Rip card for you Rangers fans out there and 5 of the red border minis/33 that I have doubles of already.... 2 each of Angels and Red Sox....  as it stands now I think I am going to try and chase down the /33 set... I am over 10% of the way there...actually I may be at 20% by now... so any of these I can trade for, well, that would be great.

2014 minis to trade:

Athletic Endeavors (AE) : 3 4 

I also have any Ginter base you would need.



Finally, I was wondering if anyone out there was going to make it to the National at Cleveland this weekend?  I have been looking forward to this for over a year now, but its looking like I am not going to be able to make it the 2 hours trip to hit the show.  In my dull boring life there is really only one hobby/ entertainment that trumps card collecting and its my obsession with IndyCar racing and well I have a race this weekend even closer to home.. 1/2 hour away, actually....  and well I don't miss an opportunity to go to a race....so the National is getting the axe....unless of course there happens to be a number of fellow blogger/collectors going...in which case I may just have to work it in....so is anyone out there heading to the I-X center????

Get your ginter wantlists ready!!!!

I am ready to start trading and not just minis... I have been accumulating minis since Ginter hit the shelves a few weeks ago, making no effort to acquire any base cards, but I big lot fell in my lap yesterday, meaning I will soon have base to trade as well!!!  Oh I also have a massive pile of 2013 ginter base, meaning I have doubles of the entire 2013 set to trade including SPs...so if you need to finish off last years set...i can meet any needs.  Here is some high end traded able stuff that I have so far...something to see while I get my wantlist ready for you.



The rip cards are self explanatory.... the Lester is a metal mini and it looks awesome.... the other 2 minis are EXT minis of Adam Jones and Cliff Lee.  There is a Matt Kemp printing plate and a Yonder Alonso silk.  looking to trade like for like if possible, as I am working on trying to get all the RIP set as well as the EXT mini set.  The metal mini and silk and plate...I would just be looking for Blue Jays or someone similar.

WANTED: 2014 Ginter Minis!!!!

If you happen to buy some packs of Allen and Ginter and have no desire to keep those pesky mini cards....I will provide them all a good home!!!  As Elvis tried to keep Memphis drug free by consuming all the drugs he could find.... hey, you have to get them off the street somehow!





Every ginter mini I acquire will be one less on the street..... I will collect the Ginter minis so you don't have to!  Or at least the minis of players on teams that you don't collect. I have many years of ginter doubles and can put together some nice packages of minis of your favorite players/ teams...  just let me know!!!


as always...I am willing to trade!

want lists....

Ok I have somehow lost my mojo about posting, and its not for a lack of good posts, as I have 3 trade posts to do at some point.  Not just any trade posts but 2 which happen to have occurred during my trip to Long Beach.  It must be Dodger blogger discrimination by me, as all 3 happen to be Dodger bloggers.

Here are a couple of links to the trades from the Dodger perspective... first up is Oscar at All Trade Bait, All The Time  and the other is with Greg at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle.  It was awesome meeting both guys and while Greg and I had traded a few times before it was great getting to do an in person trade.  I just hope to be able to go to Long Beach again next year and make a few more trades... So at the rate I have been going.... this might just be my trade post....but I hope that isnt the case.
