I am a set builder, mainly baseball. Over a million cards to trade, 1982-2020, not listed here, were already listed on another site. I have listed some cards here for trade,  and most cards listed in the Sportlots collection are for trade/sale as well.  Thanks!

I really NEED to PURGE my collection. That PROJECT PURGE is in PROCESS Also need major major organizing of what I have. Then again I've needed reorganizing for 16+ years now. I am in the process of going through my dupes and traders and adding them to my "Traders and/or For Sale" collection here.

I'm Primarily a Set collector: Baseball, Football, Vintage, Hockey, Non-Sport. Prefer Pre-1980 Vintage. I also collect my local DC Area and Some Maryland teams.

I am OK with receiving PWEs containing only a few cards. However, I do not normally send out PWEs myself (I might have to while I'm purging). I like having my packages tracked and prefer to send in bubble mailers.

I live in the USA and ship ONLY to the US. Sorry I will not trade with any other countries it is too expensive to ship, plus there usually is no tracking available and takes a long time for shipments to arrive for either end.

My biggest annoyance in the hobby, other than the overproduction of parallel sets for every dang set from every card maker, is the use of regular clear scotch tape anywhere near the card(s) especially if on the toploader (takes a huge effort to remove it). Also do not like the use of Card "Savers" for more than one card and hate when they are taped shut. If tape is to be used to secure cards it is best to use Painter's Tape (the BLUE tape). It isn't always blue but that is the traditional color.

Will mail PWE for trade of 9 cards or less. I don't buy on TCDb. Only U.S. trades.

I collect error Cards, variations, and all Garrett Whitley or Ian Anderson cards.

If you find something on my for sale/trade list but don't have anything I'm looking for, I am more than happy to sell at very reasonable prices.

For the vintage cards on my wantlist, I am looking for VG+ condition. No creases. 1-2 rough corners is OK, but I don't want 4 rounded ones. Centering isn't too important, as long as I can't see the next card on the front or the back. I want clean, unmarked checklists.  Not all of the vintage on my trade list matches these criteria, and that is why many of them are on my trade list as I have upgraded the cards over the years.  I will let you know condition before agreeing to a trade.

The CJ McCollum and Josh Allen cards on my wantlist are lower priority.  They are there mostly as filler or if you find other hoop/football cards on my trade list that you are interested in.  I'm unlikely to trade higher value baseball for anything other than baseball.  Find a bunch of common baseball and the only matches are McCollum and Allen, we can probably work something out.

I also have a LARGE quantity of 1991 Topps separated out by glow back, non-glow, bold logo, etc.  I don't have them listed on the site as there is no way to distinguish between the glow and non-glow backs.  If you collect these and are looking to trade, please look me up and we will certainly figure something out!

(IMPORTANT) I had to add this statement since being ripped off three times on large trades: Should you be a first-time trader with me and no matter how many great feedback notes or how many digits your total trading number is I will insist you mail first and provide a tracking number on larger trades that will be verified prior to my shipping your cards. I have had to do something here since I have lost over 2000 cards due to dishonest people on this site and it stops here and now. THIS IS NOT PERSONAL TO ANYONE it is just my way of protecting my product when trading! Again, to those easily offended traders, spoken in the words of the CAPO: "It's not personal Sunny, it's just good business". Smaller, low dollar trades would naturally not fall into this category and if You and I have traded in the past, please disregard. 

I trade for EX/MT to MT cards. Filling Baseball/Football sets. I have some Basketball and Hockey to trade for Football/Baseball. Fair value trades only! No 91 junk for 70s! All mistakes will be made right. I keep my stock in good condition and inform trade partners of defects. I'll expect same in return.

My Steeler and Pirate binders always have empty pages to fill. I also collect Tony Gwynn and followed his entire career God rest his soul! Hit me up with a trade proposal and we'll see if we can get it done.

I like building sets.

I have Transactions turned off until I make sure everything looks good.  But feel free to shoot me a message if we have some common needs/wants and I can turn it on to work something out.

I will not accept trades where you're sending a bunch of common set needs for an auto or numbered card or big name.  Please message me first before proposing something like that.  (I will be slowly migrating all autos to "Have" from "For Trade" because of the offers that regularly come across.)

I collect Andy Van Slyke, Nats, and Cubs.  My sons collect mostly Cubs (all the big names - Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, Nico...)

I love big trades of common cards.

I've shipped to Canada, after proposing a trade in ignorance.  And I would do it again for big trades if I get some (re)coaching on how to do it best and we can keep it affordable.

Typically, I do PWE (plain white envelope) trades but after a few successful transactions, I'll happily trade larger.

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 limitations..it 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!!

March 2024 - I am extremely busy at work right now and have next to no time for card related items. Happy to look at trade offers when I can but the hobby is not a top priority for me right now. 

January 2024 - Over 1400 trades completed and I've owned/traded/moved over a million cards since joining the site 6+ years ago. That being said, the current state of trading on this site is atrocious. Several years back, the traders were all great to deal with but this has changed dramatically in the last few years and there's truly on a handful of traders which I feel any level of comfort dealing with. Trade offers go ignored, are countered with ridiculous offers and petty issues seem to be common anymore. I left out everyone seems to treat their cards like million dollar prized possessions. I started a No Trade list but it seemed like every few days I was adding someone to it, not worth it guys and gals. I'm finding that I can buy cards I want either from Sportlots or eBay with so much less hassle. And cheap too. 

All that said, when my current stash of postage runs out, I'm turning off trading and not sure if I will be returning. Was a fun ride while it lasted. 

November 2023 - Trade Values - I am back to using Beckett to look at card values for trade equality. 

Willing to trade to Canada again. I am though not accepting any responsibility for any losses, etc. once I drop my envelope in the mailbox. Trader beware!

October 2023 - Nothing against any of my Canadian traders but I am no longer trading to Canada due to issues with Canada Post and the USPS destroying envelopes causing loss of cards, cards needing to be resent, issues with postage, etc. It's too much folks. 

To pull, package and ship cards, only to have one of the postal systems destroy the package makes it a fruitless endeavor. It's a waste of both time and money. 

Sadly, Canadian trades make up most of my trades so this is probably the beginning of the end of my trading days.  I will probably beginning selling off most of my collection starting in 2024. It's been a fun ride but thats the way I'm heading right now. 

****1990-91 Upper Deck Hockey VAR's on my For Sale/Trade list - Highly unlikely that I have any of the oddball VAR's. These cards were entered mainly as placeholders meaning I do have one version of a given card but probably not the version you need. If time permits, I may be open to checking VAR versions but it's not something that I enjoy doing nor high on my list of things to do. ****

September 2023 - Continuing to focus on collecting one card of anyone who is the four Hall of Fame's. I'm over 90% complete on Baseball and Football. Basketball is lagging far behind. Haven't updated Hockey but I should be in good shape there as well. 

Supplies:

For anyone close to Denver, I have a large amount of trading supplies that need to find a new home. I have BCW card houses, 5000 and 3200 count boxes and a host of smaller boxes (800, 660, 550, 400, 300, 200 and 100). The latter is a mixture of used and new Collect-Save-Protect or BCW brand. 

Disclaimer on PWE trades

I'm hearing of, and personally experiencing, more and more issues with PWE trades. Mainly postal machines destroying/bending envelopes or envelopes arriving and the cards being missing. I have not seen issues like this in my prior 1100+ PWE trades. That being said, I will continue to send 25 cards or less PWE but once the envelope is dropped in the mailbox, I'm no longer responsible for damage/issues after that point. I'm not sending replacement cards or funds if there's damage once the USPS has my/your envelope or your cards are lost in the mail.

I'm very close to no longer writing "Non-Machinable" on my PWE envelopes. This doesn't seem like a makes a difference to the USPS and the financial costs for doing this quickly add up. 

I hate to take a hard stance on this but short of stopping trading (or doing larger, bubble envelope trades), I have no other options. I'm spending too much time and money on postage to send replacement cards, when the issue arises, to make trading worth it.

Happy to do larger trades (30+ cards) in bubble envelopes.

What I'm collecting for:

1)I'm primarily an Upper Deck flagship hockey collector. I'm working on completing a few remaining base sets and then chasing Young Guns and insert cards. 

2)I'm also collecting RC's (when possible) of all NBA/NHL/NFL/MLB players who have been inducted into their respective Hall of Fames. Also collecting non-players cards as well if they are in the HOF. Basically if the person is in the Hall of Fame for their sport, I'm hunting their RC or if it's a non-player, some type of card for them.

3)Finally, I'm collecting Baseball/Hockey and to a lesser extent, Football sets, of the 1970's/1980's. 

Card condition:

If your cards look like they have been manhandled, I'm not interested in them for my collection. No creases, rounded corners or teeth marks. 

Buying cards:

I've had several folks approach me about buying cards..I will rarely be interested in buying from someone and, odds are, I will reach out to you first..

Trade size:

Make it worth our time..

PWE packaging:

I am no longer using cardboard protection in my PWE trades. Historically, I've done 100's of trades with cards just in 9 pocket pages and then placed in envelopes and have had zero issues. After some issues I have seen lately with including cardboard in my PWE trades, I'm no longer spending the extra money, and time, just to have cardboard protection in an envelope. 

Postage:

Please make sure you have proper postage on whatever you are sending me. Seems to be half the envelopes I get are short on postage. Minimal postage on a PWE envelope is $1.03.

Canada trades:

Has between 9 and 25 cards or less. I can't afford to send big trades unless there's additional cards/value to compensate. Trades less than 9 or so cards don't make a lot of sense either from a cost standpoint.
