Any and all Braves cards from 1954 - 2020 (RIP Hank Aaron).

I have decided to scale back from trying to collect every Braves card ever made and concentrate on the the sets I like. Lately it seems to be next impossible to collect team sets since there are so many inserts, VAR, SP, and just all to many brands. Topps has once again turned collecting into $$$ for them by making so many different brands. The cost to collect is getting to be very expensive and making me question the hobby again. I still plan on trading and looking for the cards I am still missing.

Willing to trade just about anything for Braves cards......

I’ve been collecting cards for over 45 years and have over 294,000 unique cards in my main collection, including some nice vintage stuff.  I collect older cards of the four major sports but lately I've been expanding to some more recent sets.
I'm primarily a Set Builder and I’m looking for other like-minded set builders to trade with.   I’ve accumulated tons of extra cards that I would like to trade away with over 195,000 cards in my current For Trade list.  To date, I've completed over 1,160 trades exchanging over 150,000 cards.  Big trades don't bother me. I have a huge Want List, so hopefully you have something I need.  Feel free to make me an offer. 

Note on Donruss Variations:
At the moment I can't guaranty the junk Donruss/Leaf cards are listed with the correct variation.  I'm in the process of relisting these cards correctly, but with over 6,000 of them, it will take a while.  Please be patient.

Note on Vintage Cards:
I have over 7,500 vintage cards listed for trade (I consider vintage to be 1977 or earlier).  For each card I've noted a condition grade and if you check closer, a note on each regarding any condition issues (be sure to select the correct one if multiple cards are shown).  Please note that I'm by no means a professional grader and if you're hyper-sensitive on card condition, please message me first and I'd be happy talk about it.  In exchange for these cards I have three priorities:

  • 1) similar vintage cards that I need (any sport)
  • 2) inserts for my 90s sets that I need (any sport)
  • 3) or non-junk era base cards that i need as a last resort (any sport)

Note on Card ConditionA card noted as Pr, Fr, Gd, or GdVg will have some obvious condition issues such as creasing, corner wear, or marks.  I would consider them place holders in a collection at best (I've listed them because some people do want place holders).  A VG card will usually be a clean card with some corner wear or a centering issue.  For me, VG would be the bare minimum for my personal collection.  EX will be nice sharp card and VgEx will be something just between VG and Ex, still a nice card with a small issue that prevents it from being EX.  NM in vintage is a tough find.

Came across tcdb.com at the end of 2019, and have already completed over 500 transactions.  Love it so far.  (Stole this from another member, but......my goal is to have zero cards in my For Sale/Trade List.  So keep the trades comin'!)

New/Current Priority: Garrett Mitchell.  Any and all, so even if it isn't on my Want List, please feel free to add it to the trade.

Update #1 to current project below: 1976-77 Topps Hockey is now complete! Well on my way on the other sets. Appreciate all the help to this point.

***My newest project is to complete Topps sets for all four major sports from 1977 (my birth year).  I have the complete set of baseball, but have now added all cards for 1977 Topps Football, 1976-77 & 1977-78 Topps Basketball, and 1976-77 & 1977-78 Topps Hockey to my Want List***

My PC is as follows (with TCDB rankings as of 4/8/2021):

NBA: Giannis (5), Dirk Nowitzki (2), and Tim Duncan (3).  (I also - unofficially - collect MJ , Kobe, & Larry Bird).

NFL: Aaron Rodgers (2), Davante Adams (1), Aaron Jones (1), Sterling Sharpe (3), Jaire Alexander (1), Brett Favre (21) and Don Majkowski (2).

MLB: Garrett Mitchell (1), Aaron Ashby (1), Roberto Clemente (1), Jackie Robinson (3), Walker Buehler (1), Robin Yount (13), Tony Gwynn (11), Hal Morris (5), Mark Grace (6), Ethan Small (1), Jo Adell (2), Pat Listach (4) and Mark Langston (2). 

WWE: Lita (6).

(Although I currently live in Florida, I was born in Milwaukee.....hence my obsession with Wisconsin sports teams.  Ha)

Please check out my For Sale/Trade list.  Feel free to message me any time.....let's see what we can get done!  (I don't necessarily trade based on "book value", but rather the value to me, so please feel free to counter if I propose a trade that you feel is unfair).

****** FRIENDS AND FELLOW TRADERS*****

*****11/02/2020*****

Just completed my 100th trade on this site and wanted to take a minute to thank everyone here for their kindness, generosity, patience and friendliness.  In what has been a rough year for us here in south Louisiana, I have been gladdened many times by not only the trades (and extras) but also the kind words expressed by so many of you regarding our post-hurricane(s) circumstances.  This is really a wonderful community!  #LakeCharlesStrong

******01/14/2021****

Amid all of the world's craziness, I want to weigh in once again on what a fun community this is!  In the short time that I have been active here, I have been able to complete my 1977 T and 2006 T ( a set my sons and I started when it was new so brought back many memories of that time) just by trading.  I am an old-fashioned flagship set builder, not all that concerned with inserts/chase cards or condition, and my experiences here have been invariably positive.  Considering my collection had been boxed away for some 30+ years, it has been great fun to get back into the true trading card aspect of the hobby and the pandemic has provided a little more free time to pursue it again.

Always open to trading (prefer PWE's) and I'm happy to help with fellow set-builders, as so many here have been so kind to me.

CURENTLY NOT TAKING TRADES

I collect Billings Mustangs cards and former Mustangs players who had prominent MLB careers (George Brett, Aaron Boone, Reggie Sanders, Joey Votto, etc.). Top players still in the minors include Jeter Downs, Hunter Greene, Taylor Trammel, Aristades Aquino, Nick Lodolo, and Nick Senzel.

I am also a Red Sox collector. I like to focus on Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra, Dustin Pedroia, and Xander Bogaerts.

Other players I look for are Randy Johnson, Matt Chapman, and Troy Tulowitzki.

I prefer to make trades PWE unless the cards are high value.

**Update as of 3/17/21. I will be shutting down trading for a few weeks and hope to be back to trading around the end of April. 

 

Trying to build the 2021 Topps set in the royal blue parallel. 

Willing to trade vintage for current, depending on what I'm currently building or which way the wind is blowing that day. Don't be afraid to throw something out there, I might surprise the both of us!

Base set Topps baseball is my main focus, but there's a few oddball baseball and non-sport sets that I'm looking to build as well. 

2021 goals:

1. Get to 40% complete on 55 Bowman

2. Get my hands on some 82 Galasso Turkey Red reprints

3. Complete 10 sets (currently sitting at 8 that are 95% or more complete, so should be attainable)

4. As always, add the Reggie rookie to the collection

5. Build 2021 Topps in the Royal Blue parallel

Primary player collection focus: Reggie Jackson, Mattingly, Griffey Jr, and Barry Sanders

Secondary player collection focus: Kirk Gibson and Michael Jordan

Condition is important but not essential. Definitely don't want pin holes, writing, or missing paper. I will do my best to verify and alert of any condition issues on my end, I ask that you please do as well.

If you're planning on vacationing in the Wisconsin Dells, I live nearby. Check out my for trade list and maybe we can work something out in person.

I started collecting baseball cards as a kid in the mid to late-80s and collected them through the early 90s. I started out collecting them with my old man, and I look back on those days wistfully. We'd sit up at night and put together sets and lists of our missing cards and that was a great thing to share with him. At some point, though, I outgrew wanting to share that experience with him, choosing instead to share the hobby with my friends. Then I started to notice girls and found other things to spend money on. I boxed up all the cards and traded the innocence of collecting baseball cards for other, less wholesome pursuits.

At some point over the course of the next 2 and a half decades, I somehow outgrew the nomadic life, became an adult, got married, found a permanent place to live, and jumped on the wildest ride of my life: fatherhood. In a fit of cleaning out my old room to make space for her new grandkids (my sister's kids at the time), my mother transported all of the cards from my childhood bedroom and brought them to live with me. To the attic they went, and in the attic they stayed for the better part of the last decade, hidden away and silent.

While working from home during quarantine, I repurposed the attic into a makeshift office to hide from my two kids, who were also at home, and who, despite my and my wife's best efforts, have no conception of privacy or quiet, and care very little for anyone else's productivity--especially when it comes at the expense of their most immediate desire. Stuck in the attic, armed with a laptop, and facing long days of working in solitude, there sat my baseball cards staring back at me, summoning me from a place and time long since gone. In a moment of sports deprived weakness, I answered their call and opened up a couple of boxes to look at my old collection. Glorious!

Within days of our local economy's soft reopening, I found a local card shop, escaped my attic, drove to it, donned a mask, and walked in to buy some new cards. I quickly learned that the days of the $0.50 pack had passed me by--quite a while ago it seems. Undeterred by the effects of what seemed to be hyper-inflation in an economy I had ignored for some 27 years, I left with not one, but two BOXES of baseball cards. Upon opening up the many packs of new cards, I discovered the advent of the insert card's prevalence, and that, unlike unicorns, autographed cards actually DO exist in packs (helllooo Pete Alonso!). Fascinated, and in need of boxes in which to store the cards and toploaders in which to protect them, it was back to the card shop for me. A couple of carboard boxes, a few bags of penny sleeves and some toploaders just couldn't be the extent of my second excursion. So, much like an addict in search of a fix, it was another box of cards for me. 

But, this new lifestyle of big spending on cards I knew nothing about would prove to be unsustainable as my wife and I are also tasked with feeding, clothing, and sheltering (in place) these two children we created. Alas, it was back to the attic for me, and back to shuffling through all of my old cards, sorting out the commons from the hall of famers, sorting out the steroid users from the clean players. Thus, a new collection was born. Hall of Famers. Those are the cards I want to collect.

But, I needed a mechanism for organizing what I had, and what I wanted to get. When I bought my last pack of cards as something other than a novelty back in 1993, the internet was not yet a thing, at least not one to which I had access. I thought: Surely there is some mechanism online to help me organize these cards, and give me reason to continue sorting through this mess. And, after minimal searching on the worldwide web, I discovered TCDB. What a brave new world this is.

I look forward to getting back into the hobby. But, for now, I am going to stick to trying to collect Hall of Famers, mostly vintage (which, I have learned, is now a word in this industry that describes me). I'm less concerned with a card's grading, centering, corners, or condition than I am with the name and face on it. I'm not in this as an investment; I'm in it for an escape. Hopefully when this little 2 year-old ages a few more years, he'll begin to enjoy collecting baseball cards as much as his old man did once upon a time. If so, I hope to bequeath to him a worthwhile collection and to share the experience with him for as long as he'll have me.
