Collecting all Topps Baseball base sets from 1956 to 2020. 

Complete Topps sets (as of 04/01/2022):  1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

I'm in remission with esophageal cancer, learning how to use my 'new plumbing' after an esophagectomy, several discectomies and spinal fusion surgery, new scars on my face from trying to make it look better by passing out and falling face first on a hardwood floor (didn't work, but cool scars!) and, worst of all, adjusting to life on my own since my collecting partner, best friend, and wife died (of course from f$#*&^g cancer)! So, this is really all I have left....LET'S TRADE!!!

If I have something on my ForSale/Trade list that you need and you have nothing to trade me, I am more than willing to sell most cards on my FS/T list at a very, very reasonable price...especially to fellow set collectors! If you're just looking to buy rookie cards cheap and then resell them....get lost!!

Sport and non sport well as new and vintage figures (toys)! 

  Nearly my entire collection of cards and figures (along with most all other material possessions) were maliciously destroyed not long before I joined the database. I came only looking for ideas regarding starting over but instead I gained a greater understanding for the hobby, made some wonderful acquaintances and have learned more than ever expected.

** GOAL: Now if I could ONLY replace my Monkees and Beatles cards- wishful thinking, I know- Hopeefully since condition doesn't matter- I can begin piecing some together without getting stung too badly!**

Looking to build PHILLIES team sets, Complete Topps and Topps Heritage Sets. made trades from cards to a trade of 800 cards. I will trade with members in Canada & Austrailia, even worldwide.

STEP 1 - Sort and organize all cards, physically and onsite. Makes all trades much easier. Also changing my signoff from ~bob~ to just Bob

Forum Posts: !!!  Noticed alot of interest in 1980-89 Topps Cards. Well I  just finished with them and ready to trade. If you need any PM me.

***ATTENTION: To all my friends and non-friends; I need to change things, hopefully for the better. The powers to be have made life miserable in my attempts to do much of anything on here. Trading has come to a standstill. Managing my collections, is about the only thing I can do with any success. If I can avoid all the 403s. So, basicly things are "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" for now. Check into to the profile for any updates. It's a shame, I really enjoy the TCDb, I just celebrated my 8-year anniversary this month, sorrowfully I'm in the dumpster, Bob

 >UPDATE: Does anyone collect 1977 Edito Service Cards WWII? looking to TRADE & SELL

Note1: To contact me, please PM me. 

Note 2: Personal site issues, please be patient.


>>TRADING OFF in TM, PM requests only, while under contruction. 


 THE TRADING POLICY ***New July 2022***

When my Trading is on, the following policy has to be followed. The T/S list inventory is extremely large and varied. So here is the order that I approach trades:

1.     Small , 1 set trades. [@  25 cards]

2.     Medium to Large, 1 set trades [@25-100 cards]

3.     Small mixed sets [2-3 sets, @ 20 cards]

4.     Medium to Large mixed sets are extremely difficult to complete in a timely manner. I won’t decline them but will work on them slowly and push them to the end of the offers.

**5. Sometimes I will push special requests ahead, If I feel I can finish quickly.

I will message you as soon as I see a new offer with a possible timeline. If you  wish to withdraw, I understand. If you are OK, I will accept the offer after I check my cards. Thanks for your understanding, if I don’t prioritize this way, no trades will get done.


 Many times, I run specific deals on my > BOBSCARDZ WEBSITE

***UPDATED 9/16/22*** Trades turned back on, substitute teaching is completed.  I'm trading my left nut for the following One and Dones to complete master sets:

2000 Upper Deck Hitters Club Autographs:  Ripken  (not even sure if this exists, anyone have a scan of it)

2005 Topps Opening Day Chrome:  4 Thome (not the Chrome Refractor)

2012 Topps Opening Day Autographs:  AC Andrew Cashner

***UPDATED 9/3/22***  So, if everythig else isn't enough, due to the teacher shortage, I'm volunteering at the high school I coach at, teaching AP Calculus A/B and B/C until the teacher they recently hired passes the background check, etc.  So between my federal job, coaching, and now teaching, there is no time for cards.  Turning off trades, but will continue to work on anything already proposed. Hoping that 9/12 will be the last day of teaching.

*** UPDATED 8/9/22 ****   It's that time of year again, volleyball season starts tomorow, so that is going to add another 5 hours to my days.  Please be patient with me, I may only be able to respond on the weekend.

Master baseball sets, vintage and modern, especially Fleer Greats of the Game, Topps Opening Day, and Topps vintage.

Trying to do a better job responding to trades.  Aug-Nov is tough for me, besides my regular job I also coach HS volleyball and tutor in the evenings, not leaving much time for cards.  I usually have to wait until the weekend to work on trades. 

Looking for NM in trades.

Priority given to trades that include any of the following from my wantlist:

1999-2006 Greats of the Game (Includes 1999 Sports Illustrated Greats of the Game and 2003 Flair Greats)

1999-Present Topps Opening Day

1999-2001 Upper Deck Legends

2003 Bazooka

2000 Fleer Tradition and Fleer Tradition Glossy

1999-2000 Upper Deck Black Diamond

1999-2000 Upper Deck MVP Silver Script parallels

Condition of Vintage cards are identified in how they are. 

Using this site mainly as tracking collection, TRADING ONLY, ANY request for selling will be replied with a 20% over Beckett price.

Trades will also depend on status of my mood as well as yours

    • Any other pre-1970 graded football
      • Any condition, preferrably PSA; primarily looking for cheap, low-grade commons

Anything that isn't on this list that currently resides in my collection is going to be removed, either through PIFs here (1st priority) or hopefully listed on COMC (2nd priority - check out my store here). I'm not terribly interested in trading, as I don't move very fast when pulling trades. However, if I'm looking for something specific and notice you have it FS/T, I may reach out to try and make an offer. I don't expect to receive any proposals, and would rather send someone a few cards from their wantlist and get nothing in return than try to hash out a deal.

I do have cards listed FS/T; they are available via COMC, listed in my "COMC" collection, and can be accessed by following the External Sales Link on those cards. I don't have them in my possession, so I can't do a trade with you. However, I want to see these cards go to people who really want them. If you see something you like, send me a message on here and let me know - the price will come down, and I'll even take a bit of a loss to get you cards for your collection.

My wantlist is turned off, as I primarily plan to use it to track my collection. If you want to send me a PIF, I truly appreciate it, and would prefer that you ask me what I'm looking for from the above lists. Surprises are great, but if you're feeling that generous, I don't want you to waste a stamp, or time pulling stuff I already have.

Currently collecting "Wheels" brand "Crown Jewels" and probably will be for awhile they made a LOT of parallels

I prefer to trade rather than sell. It takes me a lot of time to add my cards to the trade list. I have a great # of cards for trade that I haven't been able to add yet. If you want to know if I have it just ask.

My collecting history:

I started as a 9 year old after receiving a pack of 2007 Topps Opening Day as a gift. So, while my peers were spending their allowance on video games and such, I spent my allowance on a few packs of cards every few weeks or so. Even in 2007, it was very difficult as a kid to collect cards with the prices of packs being so high (back in the day, it was a steady $2 per pack of flagship Topps -- both retail and hobby -- and that was all I could collect.) That is why I am such a huge proponent of getting kids back involved with some sort of cheap sets in which packs are about 25-50 cents each for 10-15 cards. With the current state of the market, it is next to impossible to get kids involved if their parents are not buying the cards for them (my parents would never have done that for me).  Anyway, since 2007 I've been pretty consistently collecting baseball cards really only taking breaks for school, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Collecting Interests:

Baseball -- Typically Topps flagship, Update, and Chrome annually, plus any other sets I feel like collecting, trying to put a 1953 Topps set together, rookie cards (Especially 1950s-1995).

I also collect Aaron Nola cards. I'm always looking to add my my Nola collection! 

Beyond that, I know my wantlist is a bit narrow, but if you have some cool Phillies cards that I dont have, I might he willing to trade for those even if they aren't on my official wantlist. Message me and we can try to work something out. I'm always open to sending or receiving cash in trades if necessary.


My Collecting Goals -- last updated in late July, 2020. 

*Note: My goals are in no particular order, are very general, and have no real time frame for when I want them to be completed. Use these just as general guides for how I collect.


Trading Rules:

Rule 1: Like for Like

very much would prefer to trade like for like. This means I tend to not like trading one $10 card for 100 10 cent cards. In this case, from a monetary perspective, the $10 card is worth significantly more since it is much more liquid and can be moved much more quickly and easily then 100 commons. Obviously, we are often trading for our own collections, and there will be exceptions to this guideline, but I have observed that most people have a bias towards dumping loads of low value cards onto me in return for one or several higher value cards -- there is a reason for that. 

Rule 2: Relatively Fair Deals

Next, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep trades relatively balancedIt is not that hard to do some research to determine the price of cards -- I typically will use ebay prices for any cards over $10 in value, COMC for cards between $1-10, and common sense intuition for cards below $1 (Trust me, when you've seen enough cards, you know the difference between a 50 cent card and a 5 cent card). I understand that you might just not have very much in your trade list that matches with my wantlist, but that is no excuse to offer 10 late '80s commons to me for a Fernando Tatis Jr. Topps rookie card (yes, that happened). If you do not have enough cards to offer for what you want in return... CONTACT ME!!! I am happy to try and work something out with you, and you might even have something that interests me that I do not directly have on my wantlist. Or, if worse comes to worse, I am always open to selling cards, or doing a partial trade with half cards and half cash. But if you just make horrible offers like the example above with no explanation, that leaves me with a first impression of you that you either (a) are trying to swindle me or (b) did not bother to research the value of the involved cards or are just generally clueless about their value. Neither of those are a good look, so please just don't do it. 

Now, I'm not saying trades offers have to be like within a dollar of each other or I'll get super offended or anything like that -- just keep it reasonable. What I mean by that is if you asked a random informed collector whether the offer is lopsided, they should answer "No."

Rule 3: Overproduction era commons for current era commons

Look, let's not kid ourselves, overproduction era cards can generally be had dirt cheap. Now, that's not to say I won't trade for them if they are on my wantlist. Quite the contrary -- I'd love to trade for anything on my wantlist! However, I've found that most people now are not looking for overproduction era cards in return (for obvious reasons). That is completely fine; however, supply and demand must take effect. I will have a much easier time trying to trade 2019 Topps commons than 1989 Topps commons, right? Thus, it seems pretty logical that the '19 cards are worth more than the '89 cards. For that reason, I have a general rule of thumb in which I will trade 2 for 1 in favor of whoever is receiving the overproduction era ccmmons, whether it is you or me receiving the overproduction era cards is irrelevant. For example, if you offer me 100 1991 Topps commons in exchange for 100 2020 Topps commons, I will ask you to either reduce the number of cards you want in return, or to increase what I am receiving. 

Again, this is a very general rule of thumb, and there are exceptions, as always. Common sense rules the day.

Rule 4: Condition

Based on the previous "rules" you probably think I am a huge stickler who gets easily offended by my pet peeves... I mean you're not wrong. ;) But seriously, I'm not too big of a stickler for condition -- especially of older cards. The term I often use is "presentable." If these cards are going towards a set, especially an older set, I want the cards to be presentable. If I had to put a grade on the cards by era that I am willing to trade for, I'd go with this:

From when God created the heavens and the earth through 1970 (pre-1970): ALWAYS communicate condition. Condition matters so much for vintage cards that, even for commons, the condition must be communicated before accepting a trade.

1970-1985: VG or better

1986-1993: EX or better

1994-2005: EX-NM or better

2006-present: NM or better

Again, I am not a huge stickler though. If your cards don't fall within these grades, let me know and we can probably still work something out.

Shipping Methods: 

I have no preference in regards to PWE or bubble mailer, I am open to both. My general rule of thumb is this:

- Bubble mailers will be used if any card involved in the trade exceeds $10 in value.

- Bubble mailer will be used if the total value of the cards being traded exceeds $20 in value.

- Bubble mailers will be used for any trade of more than 80 cards or so, no matter the value.

- Anything not meeting the above three criteria will be sent in 1-3 PWE(s) with a max of 27 cards per envelope. Cards will be placed into 9 page pocket at a max of 3 cards per pouch, folded over each other, and placed between thin pieces cardboard (typically cereal boxes or the like) taped together.

I'm a collector, not an investor. I typically prefer dealing within eras, common-for-common, star-for-star, HOFer-for-HOFer, and will ALWAYS consider vintage (pre-1980) cards as being more valuable than modern (post-1980).

My available vintage in the various sports is mostly Fair to Good with stragglers along each side. Most are noted, many not, but if well-loved, well-worn are your type of vintage, then let's deal!

If TCDB or B****tt pricing is your preferred valuation, then please look elsewhere as we probably won't reach an agreement.

A strict minimum for trades is 18-cards each way, but will relent on that if ANY from my TOP 5 below are included.

I collect various sports, NASCAR Racing most recently - love getting Dale Earnhardt Jr cards!  Additional interests in Dallas Cowboys, Nolan Ryan, and various non-sport trading card sets/genres :)

Was out for a long while, had a couple of heart attacks, and life in general got "in the way"... Glad to have rediscovered this site and the great community that makes it so special!   *2 thumbs up*

Teams most interested in:

Dallas Cowboys (of course!)

Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Diamondbacks

Texas Rangers

Phoenix Coyotes

Phoenix Suns

          San Francisco Forty-Whiners [  but only to appease my deranged, yet loving wife... :D ]

updated 17OCT2022:

I've been dormant for awhile but still responding to emails and trade offers. Looking to downsize drastically!!! So don't hesitate to ask even its in my collection. 

I did the unbelievable and sold off my Eli Manning collection.. yes it's sad, but its done. !!

Anything on Trade List is open for sale offers-- I also don't mind giving a few cards here and there for nothing, just ask! No trade to small!

The 2015-16 Bowman baseball sets in collection are also avail for sale or trade as a whole. There are over 400 Bowman auto's I like to dump for $425 for all them. 

I'm only looking to keep a few select cards , mostly my favorite Phils and some Rookies.

Priority of my want lists:
1 - Any and all Phillies cards (almost anything not in my collection is a "want")
2 - Various set ventures (baseball - 1972 Topps, 2014 Topps 1989 die-cut minis, Archives, Heritage sets, then hockey sets)
3 - Baseball HOFers (1980s)
4 - Baseball HOFers (1970s)
5 - Baseball HOFers (1990s)
6 - Baseball HOFers (other decades)

If there are any other categories of want lists, they would fall between set completion and HOFers.

I have 60,000 - 80,000 cards available for trade that have not listed yet. If you have something on my want list, please drop me a note and we'll see if I have anything you're looking for.

Note: I have currently stopped accepting transaction requests. This does not mean I am not open to trades. My collections are still not complete on here and I have 60,000 - 80,000 cards to add to my FS/FT list. As previously mentioned, drop me a note if you have a bunch of items on my wantlist and would like to see if we could work something out. Please make it so that the postage to/from your location to mine makes a trade worthwhile for both of us. Thank you.

Thanks for reading my profile. I enjoy trading cards I don't need for those that I do. I've been in this hobby for many years (I remember opening 1955 Bowman packs at our local candy store)! 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.  Please counter, if need be!  Communication is key to good trading!   I have some physical may take me a bit to pull cards so your patience is appreciated!  

1.  My top priority is completing sets.  

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

3. Older Phillies teamset needs..all brands.

As mentioned, 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, through thick and (mostly) thin!  PWE trades are great and assumed unless we agree otherwise - 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!!
