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.

Want lists

Joy of a completed set.. sorta.... 2010 reg mini set (ext pics ahead)

Just a bit over a year ago I had won  this card on ebay-- the 2010 Ginter  #375 Kurt Suzuki ext mini, which was suppose to finish my ext portion of the reg mini set.  And then..... it never showed up, the buyer had loaded in the shipping number, but it never showed up at the post office.  After back and forth and my first claim to ebay for non shipping seller, I won the claim, which was better than not winning but I was still 1 card short on my set.  I had started to give up hope of the card ever showing up again when it reached a year of no sighting.... and then boom it shows up  in a BIN/OBO, I  put in an offer of $25 (which was $12 less than I had paid previously), seller accepts...but I knew better than to think my set was finished based on my prior experience.  2 days later card shows up unscathed and now my 2010 ginter reg mini set is finished....right?? Well, not exactly.  I have all 50 ext minis but somehow I am still short of 2 reg minis #12 Jesus Flores and #46 Chad Billingsley.  I may or may not have these 2 cards hiding somewhere in my mess of minis, but rather than search frantically or caving in and buying these 2, I am going to hold out hope that someone out there has one or more of those 2 and would be willing to trade.  I am not sure I have finished any of my sets via a trade and I would like for that to happen, so do you have one of them to trade??? I will make it worth your while. 

Ok enough of my boring write up.... here is about the only unique and interesting thing I bring to the blogosphere..... pics of ginter ext minis....  ignore that first row.... they are just regular ole SP minis.  Cole Hamels is card 351 and I have to say my 2 favs of these are the 356 of Mark Texieira and 373 of Joe Maurer.  Enjoy.




Let's make a deal!!!

Ebay Global Shipping Program---what the hell???

I need some help trying to get out of this mess.....  I had signed up for the program, thinking it was an easy way to ship international and well  once I sold an item--well actually 3 as the buyer took advantage of combined shipping... the buyer told me about all the crazy charges they add on, plus I found out I have to ship all 3 items separate, so there goes combining.  Anyone had experience getting out of this after a sale?  I know in looking for ways via google.... I have found lots of people with issues but no good way to fix after a sale.
