I am a player collector mainly...collecting Robin Yount, Ersan Ilyasova, Brett Favre, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Bobby Labonte.  In addition, I also want to collect most of the base sets for the Brewers, Bucks and Packers.  I am always looking for multiple copies of the Robin Yount 1990 Donruss #146 (any variation) or the Robin Yount 1988 Score #160 cards.  They have always reminded me of a better time, a simplier time.  I like the way these cards bring back those memories.

A few people outside of this site have been very interested in growing their collections; so I also am trying to get cards for these players as well.

- Pokemon and animal cards for my boys

- Juan Soto for my brother. 

- Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky & a few others for a buddy that I'm trying to convince to become a member.  He is a member now!!  His profile name is Electric Burrito.

If I happen to get anything else, that's cool too.

 

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.

Lately, I've been really collecting 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 750 different police sets issued between 1982 and 1993, with over 815 different cards that I am very interested in (He has two cards in the 1993 sets).  Currently, I have 225 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.

New Project:  I have been gathering information on Robin's 3,142 hits and would like to put 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.

My One & Done List - I think it would be neat to trade with every state.  So far, I have collected 49!!  One to go!!  Can't wait to have a trade in Wyoming!!  I also have traded with Canada, Australia, Italy, Norway, United Kingdom and the Netherlands, let's keep 'em coming!!
