COLLECTING

  • Sets: 1954-2024 Topps Baseball base sets, including updates. Here is my Topps Sets Status list, my 10 or Less list, and a list of sets with the most to least number of cards needed to complete each set.
  • Teams: Baltimore Orioles, Washington Capitals, Baltimore Ravens, and a few Baltimore Colts.
  • Players: Cal Ripken Jr., Alexander Ovechkin, and Lamar Jackson.

TRADING

Overview

  • Trades only. I don't buy or sell cards on the TCDB.
  • U.S. and Canada trades only. Trades to Canada on a case-by-case basis (if I have to fill out a customs form, forget it).
  • I have 51,300+ different cards listed for trade (I don't list multiples). Fair, base-for-base, trades are welcome, especially in bulk. If you're asking for inserts or non-base cards, please offer cards that are similar (Hint: I have a LOT of Cal Ripken Jr. and Lamar Jackson cards on my want list).
  • Let's communicate to ensure both parties have all cards available and in acceptable condition BEFORE either of us commits to hitting the "Accept" button. It's a mess trying to fix errors for damaged or missing cards after accepting.
  • I'd like to stay within the same decade for vintage trades: 50s for 50s, 60s for 60s, and 70s for 70s. For 80s and later cards, it's not as important. Also, I'm OK with trading across sports or for non-sport if you are.

Condition and Variations

  • For trades involving pre-1980s cards, expect to exchange images of cards to verify condition. Everyone's standard varies on what is acceptable condition for their collection. Exchanging photos allows both parties to determine if the cards they are receiving are in acceptable condition.
  • For 50s-70s vintage cards coming my way, I'd prefer cards without heavy scuffs, no tears, no surface damage, no writing (including mustache drawings), no heavy creases breaking the surface, no severely rounded corners, no holes, no wax stains, and no part(s) of the card missing. Centered is preferred. Everything later than 1980 I'd expect to be near-mint or mint condition. If offering cards with dark borders such as the 2001, 2002, 2003, or 2007 Topps cards, please ensure that they do not have surface damage from bricking (snow) or edge chipping. Again, I'm open to exchanging images of cards to verify condition, especially for vintage cards. Thank you.
  • I make every effort to enter the correct variations. If you are interested in a specific variation, please ask and I will verify that the variations are correct. For me, the only sets that I'm concerned about receiving the correct variations for are the 1981 Fleer, 1991 Topps, and 2012 Topps sets.

Trade Sizes and Shipping

  • The bigger, the better! I'm trying to complete sets while helping you to complete yours, so large fair common-for-common trades are welcome! My biggest single trade so far has been 3,509 cards: 2024 TCDB Site Award: Largest Trade. We can top that, right?
  • I use the Trade Matching feature often to propose large trades. So, if you're on the top of my match list, don't be surprised if you get a large set-building trade offer from me. I'm trying knock out sets while helping you knock out yours.
  • 15 to 24 Cards: PWE (unless you prefer a tracked bubble mailer). NOTE: I prefer PWE trades to be 15 or more cards to make it worth the postage unless the cards involved are of higher value or vintage cards.
  • 25 to 48 Cards: Two PWEs (because getting TWO envelopes full of cards in the mailbox is better than getting one!) or a bubble mailer, if you prefer.
  • 49+ Cards: Team bags in a plastic bubble mailer or a 200ct to 500ct card box. All larger than PWE trades will have a USPS tracking number sent to you in a transaction message.
  • I try to mail out as soon as possible. When work is crushing my soul, I will let you know my mailing is delayed. Apologies in advance.
  • I take EVERY trade package I mail out to the post office and let them weigh it and apply non-machinable postage to it. I also get a receipt for it in case anything goes wonky.

Thank you for reading my profile and stopping by!
