Stopped building sets in 09 and now have stopped chasing SFGiants/49ers in 2019. But still have lots of wants. Due to a generous divorce court had to return to work, so trading is still important to me but now pulling and mailing can only be done on fridays and saturdays.

Thanks in advance!

 

FELLOW COLLECTORS - I LOVE my late 80's-mid 90's basketball and football cards, 89 nba hoops being my favorite to rip as a 11-12 yr old hoops junkie...now that i have completed my sets for 89 AND 90 nba hoops sets, i am on the hunt to find the announcer/special checklist cards card for these same years, as well as finishing up my (innagural years) 90 skybox basketball and 91 upper deck basketball sets, I also started putting together my birth year’s 1977 Topps basketball and my son’s birth year 2011 NBA Hoops basketball sets, i also collect individual players: 

Magic Johnson

Larry Bird

Michael Jordan

Chris Mullin

Charles Barkley

Hakeem Olajuwon

Jason Kidd

I am a huge Kentucky Wildcat hoops fan, so i am sometimes partial to and open to collecting players who played there for even 1 year (from Pitino's bombinos to Cal's one and doners), only UK jersey cards

I also am collecting former NFL stars:

Barry Sanders

Ed Reed

Larry Fitzgerald

and current NFL players:

*DERRICK HENRY* (# 1 on TCDB, last time I checked, which has by now probably changed)

Kyler Murray

Patrick Mahomes

Travis Kelce

Christian McCaffrey

Josh Allen

Tyrann Mathieu

DK Metcalf

My 11 year old son also has started collecting, so I trade for him as well, as he is a basketball junkie like his pops:

he LOVES/LOVED Kobe Bryant (his personal GOAT)

Lebron James

Anthony Davis

Giannis

Dame

The (3) Curry's

and other current NBA super stars

***I prefer to do trades of 18-27 (ish) cards or less (please, no deals smaller than 4-6 cards each, to BOTH get our money's worth on postage) to allow me to safely place 2-3 cards (max) per slot on a 9 slot folded, sleeved page to be sent between 2 pieces of (painter's) taped cereal board in a long PWE, to be able to use a standard stamp and avoid large shipping cost, however, we can do larger trades if need be, no problem, as this is just what i have found works most efficiently since i have been on this site...i am always game for shipping tricks, so please feel free to share them wih me anytime!***

*** CONDITION -  like some of your FST lists, please do not expect older cards (mainly baseball and football, 1990 and prior) to be in 'grading' condition, as these have seen 30+ years of exchanging ownership, and appear that way as well, however, they are more than suitable for PCs and set completion, but, if you have questions about a particular card on my FST list prior to agreeing to a trade, please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to see photos of those card/s prior to our trade being agreed upon

*** VARIATION/ERROR cards - some of the variations.error cards (especially baseball, Donruss comes to mind) are not listed correctly, as it is very tedious to input, based on small, not so visible * and/or letters on older cards, so, please advise me on the deal proposal or counter if are seeking a particular variation/error card and i will confirm ASAP if i have that one you are seeking

***COUNTER OFFERS - During a counter offer, I will generally never remove any cards you are requesting on your side of the deal, unless I realize the card is no longer in my inventory, however, in the event I do feel I need to remove something, I WILL advise you which card is being removed, so you are fully aware before moving forward on the deal..no funny business going on here, AND, I expect the same thing, I respect and follow good, honest business practice, and would greatly appreciate and expect the same-no smoke and mirrors...

***I pride myself on being a QUICK trader, normally getting your cards out by the next AM at the latest, so please respect me and do the same, thanks in advance! ***

Any and all Braves cards from 1954 - Present (RIP Hank Aaron).

I have decided to scale back from trying to collect every Braves card ever made and concentrate on the the sets I like. Lately it seems to be next to impossible to collect team sets since there are so many inserts, VAR, SP, and just all to many brands. Topps has once again turned collecting into $$$ for them by making so many different brands. The cost to collect is getting to be very expensive and making me question the hobby again. I still plan on trading and looking for the cards I am still missing.

Willing to trade just about anything for Braves cards......

• Working on low to mid grade 1970 through 1972 complete Topps baseball sets, but I'll take any condition just to complete these sets. I'm focusing on these right now and I hope to trade as much for these as I can. I will buy if the price is right. I'm over halfway on 1970-1972 with HOF and High #'s remaining.

• Detroit Tigers Topps Team Sets, including SP (Complete 1958 to present)

• Detroit Lions Topps and Donruss post 2015 Team Sets, including SP (Complete 1956 to present)

• West Michigan Whitecaps Team Sets (Complete 1994 to present)

• Topps Flagship Baseball Sets 1970 to present (Complete 1973 to present)

• Topps Flagship Football Sets (Complete 1981-1992)

• Topps Traded/Update Sets (Complete 1974 to present)

• Topps Pro Debut Sets (Complete 2010 to present)

• MLB Mascots

• Any other local teams of interest - Grand Rapids Griffins, Muskegon Lumberjacks, Grand Rapids Rampage, Traverse City Beach Bums, Traverse City Pit Spitters, etc.

I've been very blessed in my trades and transactions here on TCDB. Thank you to all. I will trade vintage for modern and vice versa as long as there is roughly equal value felt on both sides. I am a set builder and collecter. I do not speculate on my cards for future value. I do this for fun, not for profit. I will sell, but only to build a small bank of money to use for buying cards I can't trade for. I've traded hundreds of cards each way and I've done many 1 for 1 trades, so no trade is too big or small for me.

In packaging, I use painter's tape ONLY. I try to use a photo mailer for small trades of about a dozen or less.  I use #10 PWE for trades up to about 2 dozen cards and maybe 2 PWE for 4 dozen.  After 50 cards, I typically will use a bubble mailer with tracking.  If it is 200 or more cards, they will likely be in a box well padded.

Just a dabbler who has gone through collecting phases but whose main interest is now Iowa Football Players in their Hawkeye uniform, Johnny Bench, Mark Brunell (Jags uniforms), Ken Griffey Jr. (Mariners uniforms), and Kirby Puckett. 

If asking for cards pre-1982 in a trade, please be advised that I will have to double-check the condition. Many 70s/early 80s cards are not in good shape.

I have a bunch of used toploaders I would be happy to sell/trade if anyone is wanting some.  Very affordable...I just need them gone!  Make an offer and I'm likely to accept!

 

Now the #1 collector of Ryan Klesko cards on TCDB!  With more to come!

PC: Ryan Klesko, Dale Murphy, Dave Winfield, Dominique Wilkins, Michael Conforto, Adley Rutschman, Nick Madrigal, Trevor Larnach, Cadyn Grenier, Drew Rasmussen, Gary Payton II, some rookie/early Bo Jackson, rookie/early/unique Eric Lindros, rookie/early Junior Seau. Looking for any Oregon State Univ alum in OSU or Team USA gear (AC Green, TJ Houshmandzadeh, Jacoby Ellsbury, Steven Jackson, Gary Payton, Nick Barnett, Matt Moore, Ochocinco/Chad Johnson, Sean Mannion, Johnny Hekker, Darwin Barney, Jake Luton, Jermar Jefferson, Hamilcar Rashed Jr, etc).

PLEASE SEND TRADE OFFERS.  It's my favorite part of the hobby.  Always willing to negotiate a good deal for both sides.  One card, or 10+ cards.  I'm fine with any size.  USA & Canada only, unless the card is significant enough to me to ship overseas.

I do NOT collect/keep any other cards of any other players/teams.  If the card isn't a unique card to me of one of my guys above, it's not something I will keep.  I don't want duplicates either.  I'll trade it or sell it if it's something I think I can move; otherwise, no thanks.  But I DO want any card of any of my PC guys if I don't already have it.  My trade/sell and want/wish lists are updated, so if it's not on those lists, it's highly unlikely that I'm interested in it, or I already own it.

Fan of: all OSU sports, Braves, Red Sox, Blazers, Chargers, Flyers, Timbers, Tottenham FC.

Goal for VINTAGE ONLY CARDS (condition NOT very important...just no rips/tears, no writing on the front...some creases ok): Hank Aaron (preferably in a Milwaukie uniform, but not required), Mickey Mantle pre-1969 (earlier the better), Babe Ruth any vintage year, Joe DiMaggio any year, Lou Gehrig any year, Ted Williams pre-1955, Jackie Robinson any year, Shoeless Joe any year, and Stan Musial pre-1960.  Prefer to stay as cheap as possible, but for the right card might go a little higher...obviously Mantle/Ruth/Joe D and those types would be more.  Again, condition I know won't be great at these prices.  I now have a Hank, Clemente, Bob Gibson, Ernie Banks, Sandy Koufax and a Willie Mays at these levels, and a couple of Ted Williams, that I'm very happy with.

  • I will typcially send cards via PWE unless the quantity is above 20 and then I will send BMWT.  If you wish a smaller trade to be sent BMWT, please adjust the trade accordingly. 

TCDB rankings as of 8/4/22:

Dale Murphy (10th), Klesko (1st), Winfield (6th), Conforto (1st), Madrigal (2nd), Rutschman (1st), Yovan (1st), Larnach (1st), Grenier (1st), Drew Rasmussen (2nd), Kevin Abel, (1st), D. Wilkins (3rd), S Jackson (82th), Gary Payton II (1st), Jacquizz Rodgers (11th), Hamilcar Rashed Jr (1st), Jake Luton (1st), Jermar Jefferson (1st).

VERY willing to trade/negotiate.  I live to trade...send me ALL trade requests!  Would prefer trades to purchases, although I know my PC is pretty limited in the grand scheme of things.  Just got back to the hobby in 2020 after approx 30 years out of it, and about 20 years after selling off 99% of it to pay for our wedding.  I forgot how much I loved it!

I am sorry but not at this time doing any trading. This is due to a lot of my  trade stock and collection is in storage at a family members home 2 hour drive from were I live now. I do have some trade stock but not all of it. Thank you.

Happy 2020! Hoping everyone a safe and prosperous year. 

This year I will be focusing on Basketball and Pokemon cards along with a few Football cards. My want list will be limited as well. I will still be actively looking for trades. 

If you find something on my trade list that interests you but don't have anything on my want list, I would be open to selling them to you at a fair price via PayPal. Just message me and I would be happy to work out a deal. 

Trades:

Always willing to trade and work out deals with members of this cool community.  

Small trades in PWE with penny sleeves into team bags with a card protector.

Larger trades up to 18 cards in 9-page sheet in PWE unless requested otherwise.

Bubble mailer for deals with higher volume and amount $$

9/8/22 - Turning off trades to focus on updating lists (parallel referee Wants, and For Trade).

If you are feeling friendly, consider up-voting my new feature suggestion - a one-click "rainbow chase" button - https://www.tcdb.com/FeatureTracker.cfm?MODE=VIEW&ID=634&PageIndex=1 - it will help me return to trading quicker!

---

I am attempting to 1) collect two of every basketball card with a referee's face visible (one base, one parallel) and eventually 2) identify each referee.

I love PWE trades. *Warning* I am a slow processor and transactions take me a long time sometimes, mostly because I do most of my card work over the weekend.

Happy collecting,

- Randy

PLEASE READ:

If I make you a trade proposal, and you don't want to trade, or you need time, or cards I want are pending, or you feel that I've unintentionally lowballed you, it's okay...i can deal with it.  I'd appreciate some sort of response though!  If you have time to log on daily, you should have time to respond with a short note!  TIA!  That being said...Lotsa baseball and football for trade or sale!!  I try to respond to proposals in a timely fashion and, at least acknowledge that the proposal was received.  PWE is assumed for smaller (21 or less) trades!!  

I usually don't pull my end before making a proposal; most times, I'm trying to get a feel for how doable it is, and it saves me from having to refile cards if things fizzle out or if I'm countered.  I will, however, (usually) pull before accepting a trade.  I have some physical limitations, so your patience is appreciated!  


My top priorities are..

2022 Topps Base Set

2021 Heritage Higg Number Series

2020 Topps Heritage High Series Set (just SPs, thanks to belijr (John) for Lou Bob!

Recent Phillies teamsets and inserts.  I do multiple teamsets to help local Philthies Phans!

I love to trade, will reluctantly sell ... cheap, if we cannot swap!  PLMK what I have that you can't live without!  Phillies is my team, and I do Topps and Topps and Bowman Heritage sets and Phillies team sets, all brands.  100s of references available - here, Facebook and online groups (Bench, TradingBases).  PWE trades are great - bubbles used if worth the shipping costs!  Slowing down though - the old body won't let me hoss those 5000 count boxes too much - thanks in advance for your patience with me!!
