Happy New Year to all!

*******************************************************************

2020 was a bummer for the little leaguers.  Got a few games in before COVID blew everything up. Kids never got back on the fields for the rest of the year.  Inventory levels are nice and full, just hope I don't have to wait much longer to dole them out to the kids.  Would like to make a little more headway on completing my vintage sets while waiting to get back on the fields.  So please let me know if you have any of my '69-'76 needs and are ready to trade.

2019 was a wonderful, busy, and fulfilling year here!  In the past, I had to get creative in order to generate interest amongst my various little leaguers.  As most of my inventory consisted of players’ cards from before most of the kids were born.  Thanks to the traders here, I was able to distribute a bountiful amount of cards to the kids last year accompanied by a huge amount of joy!

Would like to give the Altuve/Judge card (18T Update #79) to as many of my Little Leaguers as I can.  It has become one of my favorites, looks just like a pic I have of 2 12-yr olds on one my teams.  It’s a great inspirational cards for the smaller kids.  Similarly, I can use an unlimited supply of Jim Abbott cards. Most every kid has a bad day in the field at some point in a season, practices/games..., so I’ll give them an Abbott card and ask them to look closely at it to tell me what they see (so no portrait poses or cards where it's hard to see he's missing a hand). Have yet to find a kid that isn't amazed!

Slowly transitioning out of football and basketball to focus on baseball.  Primarily building sets from childhood days, working my way back in time. Current primary focus is on completing 1968, 1969, 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1976 Topps baseball sets. I will always consider trading my 80s/90s inventory for modern all-star cards, I give them away to the 5-14 yr old kids on the little league teams I coach here in Hawaii.  But since we don’t have MLB here, the young kids won’t recognize the names unless they’re all-stars or Kolten Wong/Kiner-Talefa/Ohtani(I coached a couple seasons with Kolten/Kean's uncle and Isiah’s dad).  I basically use the tcdb pricing to balance out trades, not due to any preference, but for lack of anything else. I've heard alot of static about others trumpeting COMC, eBay, & Beckett, which is perfectly ok/understandable, but in almost every case, when referring to tcdb their trades come out heavily in their favor(have yet to see one the other way around).  I’m pretty open to all trades, but like trades to be fairly reasonable.  If a trade involves cards with large discrepancies in pricing, please don't be offended.  Point them out, and the trade can be adjusted or cards removed.

For those of you like me with monster boxes of 80’s/90’s, I will trade for multiples of 12-18 of HOFers or team/all-time record holders (as long as I can ask the little leaguers a relevant trivia question so the card can be a reward). Just message me, as I would not list such cards on my wantlist. 

For traders who are missing 1 or 2 cards after accepting a trade, please make an effort to substitute with something similar.

     
Quote:   For 1971 and earlier, I am looking for EX+, 1970s - EX/MT+, 1980s-modern - NM+. Please let me know what your grade standards are for 1970s and earlier cards.Everything I have listed FT from 1980 to modern is EX/NM+.I have other unlisted 60s/70s in VG/EX.
