NOTICE: It is very plausible that I turn off my trades soon (in the next days) and I check if my lists are up to date with my inventory. Contact me asap if you need something on my list right away.

I trade cards to build baseball, hockey and some non-sport sets, but I don't buy or sell cards. New cards are regularly added to my FT/S list.

All the cards I list here are NRMT or EX unless specified and I expect the same of you. Even I don't collect micro-variations (dots, stars, copyright marks, holograms, printing plate codes...), all my 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1992 Donruss have been checked. I use painter's tape for all shipments and I am fine with shipping cards in single or multiple PWEs, if the cards are properly packaged. I don't mind large or small transactions, but I currently prefer trades with 10 to 20 cards going each way or at least that the cards carry more value than the postage.

Besides helping to complete our collections one step closer each time, the opportunity would be nice to have traded with all the states, provinces and territories of North America. On this site only, I traded with 44 states, 9 provinces and overseas. I can't wait to have a trade in Alaska, D.C., Delaware, Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Manitoba and the 3 Canadian territories. However, if you don't live in the above juridictions, you're still more than welcome to trade with me.

Tip to save on shipping costs to Canada: use PWEs (Plain White Envelopes) and avoid bubble envelopes, plastic boxes and big stacks of cards. Ship as flat as you can (cut 9 pocket pages in 3 rows and insert 4-5 cards in each pocket). The more it looks like a greeting card or documents mailed in a regular letter instead of a package, the more it tends to be cheaper to ship. Current U.S. to Canada first class postage rate (up to 2 oz) is $1.30 and if non-machinable, $1.60. If you don't have Global Forever stamps handy, three regular Forever stamps work as well. There's also no need to pay $14.25 for shipping with international tracking, because it is too expensive and Canada Post won't track your postal item anyway. Overall, postal service tends to be slower in Canada and at times a bit harder difficult to predict, but it is as reliable as in the U. S..

A.S.

     
Quote:   WARNING: I do all my best to keep my lists up to date, but they may contain incorrect versions due to the incessant frequency with which new micro-variations are added. I don't collect them, but please ask me first, if they matter to you.
