***As of August 2022 due to the amount of trades I am getting each week I have had to focus a few days on shipping cards out, so dont worry I am working on our trade, but I only expect to visit the post office on Mon/Tue and Fri/Sat of each week.***

I collect Vintage, Heritage, Archives, and most retro Baseball releases.  I like old cards and new cards with vintage designs.  I also have a growing collection of poorly cut and wildly written on cards, so I always enjoy finding examples of those, may publish a book of them some day, but they are not a premium to me, I like them cheap and crazy!

Worst collecting regret...so far....selling my dads SGC 2.5 Mickey Mantle rookie card(9007788-062), his SGC 4 1952 Jackie(9007788-067) and my 1953-1980 complete sets through Heritage Auction House in 2016, they acted like they cared but in the end their level of interest and service goes hand in hand with the grading number on your card, they flaked and disappeared on me losing thousands of my cards in their vault for over a year, stay away from them unless you have the 9.5 Mantle like they just sold, they care then.

I have most of my vintage cards listed for sale/trade but my extras are mostly well loved to good-vg examples, so if you prefer perfect cards or EX-MT I probably can't help you.

My Trading thoughts or what people ask me...

-In terms of overall trades, my vintage is well loved, but in decent shape, im generally looking to trade it for other vintage on my want list(which is mainly variations, Topps oddballs, or a 1952 Mickey Mantle :0) or interesting Heritage/Archives stuff like relics, SPs, or autos in roughly equal value.  

-For vintage commons 1958-1989 I have removed cards with really bad corners, gum damaged, badly miscut, bad creases,  and anything falling into the poor catagory and some bordering on fair.  So cards will be high fair condition , mostly good condition, some VG, and a few EX.

-For vintage commons 1952-1957 I have removed cards with missing corners, badly miscut, full on creasing and bent cards, but some are what I would consider fair with creasing and rounded corners, generally the older the cards in my lists the lesser condition they are in.

-For vintage stars and high numbers from all years I have removed gum damaged, badly miscut, and cards in poor condition, but have left ones in my trade list that may have bad corners, some creasing, and would be considered fair condition due to them being harder and more expensive at the higher grades, so ask if that is something that might bother you I can share details on defects or photos.

-In terms of Heritage SPs I again mainly look to trade them for other Heritage/Archives SPs,  inserts, autos and/or relics I need in roughly equal value from across all products.  ll cards are EX or better, with only pack related issues.  I try and remove all dinged corner cards, but if you get some I missed I apoligize and will work to correct if they are not.

-In terms of Heritage/Archives commons and most other cards I am willing to trade them for most things on my want list again in roughly equal value across all products.  All cards are EX or better, with only pack related issues.  I try and remove all dinged corner cards, but if you get some I missed I apoligize and will work to correct if they are not.

-In terms of my 80s OPC stuff, it ranges from Fair to Ex condition, I remove cards with writing and serious damage, there are some 71/72 and 79-84 cards that are in lower conditions and mis-cut, as an American collector in the Midwest OPC is hard to get, I usually buy bulk lots and some cards are in bad shape, I pull the really bad ones out, but as experienced OPC collectors know mis-cuts are a way of life, so please understand this.

-I have lots of 90's cards on my wantlist, which I look for to complete sets I missed, but want is a strong word...but I will not take those in trade for vintage or Heritage/Archive SPs unless the bulk is overwhelming.

-I have a few of the Super 7 action figures from the Big League baseball line as well, I look for roughly $25 in trade value for those or figures from the list I dont have in exchange for any of them.  This is the going rate for these and shipping will cost me extra due to the size.

-I have several vintage non-sports sets I have been building, some since my childhood, im glad to trade equal value and time period baseball cards for those as well.  These cards tend to be Good to EX.

I have a lot of extra sets of recent Heritage and Archives as well as extra sets of 1980-1989 Topps, Donruss, and Fleer made up of cards I myself opened in the 80's so if you looking for a set let me know and we can discuss how I can give my old cards a good home. 

I build Heritage and Archives sets a few months after release and can help if your looking for that as well.  I sell many at my LCS, but glad to help TCDB members out as well.

In the end feel free to offer a trade, I wont be offended but may say no based on the above.
