I am one of the members that helps within the site.  I work closely with the IRs and can answer most questions.  Please send me a message if there is anything I can assist with.  If I don't know, I can certainly try to figure it out or direct you to a resource.

I am a player collector...collecting Robin Yount, Ersan Ilyasova, Brett Favre and Bobby Labonte. 

I am also negotiating trades for a member that I have been helping with the site.  These cards are all for John.  His profile name is Electric Burrito.  Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky, Marshall Faulk, Jim McMahon, Pete Rose, Aaron Judge, Bo Jackson and a few others.

Trying to help a member get the last 1991 Stadium Club variations.  Please let's get him there!!  I have plenty to trade with.

I like to trade!!  I mainly prefer PWE trades, but am set up for larger trades too.  I have a scale at home and the wife works at the post office so I rarely need to go there.  I like to get my trade list into the hands of members that could use them.  If this means that I give a lot more than I receive, this is fine with me.  You get the cards you need, I get the space back in my area.  I am open to buying and selling, but mainly, I am a trader.

My primary collection is something regional, I really want to collect the old Brewer Police cards, they were issued for each community throughout Wisconsin.  But I have been especially looking for the Robin Yount cards.  I think there are over 775 different police sets issued between 1982 and 1993, with over 850 different cards that I am very interested in (He has two cards in the 1993 sets).  Currently, I have 285 different Yount cards.  It's actually been fun, but I have a long way to go.  Any of the other Brewers cards that I have would be available if you are interested, but let me check on the condition.  Since I am getting a lot of them through thrift stores, eBay and rummage sales, some are pretty ragged.  I also have Packers Police cards that would potentially be available too.

A fun project that I have started is gathering information on Robin's 3,142 hits.  I have been putting a collection together of him and the pitchers that he hit off of.  This means that I am on the hunt for many, many copies of Robin's Topps cards, one copy for every hit within that year.  But also, many AL pitchers.  I plan to match up the pitcher's card with Robin's card and add a little write up of the at bat and the game.  I'm such a nerd.
