Collection:   87,205 cards
     

Collects:

 

Packers, Brewers, Bucks, Blackhawks, Robin Yount, Rollie Fingers, Ryan Braun, Reggie Jackson, Brett Favre, Bo Jackson, Frank Thomas, Christian Yelich, Dennis Eckersley, Gary Sheffield, Andre the Giant

 Always looking to do trades.  I prefer PWE (4-27 card trades), but I'm not afraid to work out a big trade. I usually send PWE for smaller trades (27 and under) unless we work something out before the deal gets done, just FYI.  

Finished adding most of my football and baseball auto and relics for trade..  They will usually ship BMWT so all I ask is you make the trade worth the shipping and I'd prefer to do like for like on the autos and relics.  But I'm always open to GOOD offers.

Concentrating on completing my Topps Baseball and Football Flagship sets.  And my Packers Team sets from 1970-2015 Topps Flagship, and base Allen and Ginter sets.  And of course any Robin Yount cards I don't have.  But I'm open to trade for anything on my want list.

Only shipping packages and PWEs to the US. 

PWE to Canada only. (of course for the right trade and cards we might be able to work out a deal for a package)

Sorry no other international shipping (just too darn expensive).

Le Renaissance

 Oh hello there.  It's been a minute hasn't it?  About a year, actually a little over a year, since my last post.  I'll be honest I didn't intend to take a year off it just kind of happened.  You'll notice I didn't apologize.  I'm not sorry I haven't posted in a year.  Well haven't posted here.  I've still be pretty active on my Yount blog.  But the hobby got kind of dark there for a while and I really didn't have too many nice things to say and you know the old axiom, "If you can't say anything nice..."

But while the hobby had to contend with the influx of new "collectors" and the insane conduct of people buying up all the retail to resell, ect, ect, I had a bit of a renaissance with my love of collecting.  In January of 2022 I made a very time consuming push to not only update my want list but also add my trade list to Trading Card Database.  Before that I had only made a handful of trades on the site and most of my previous trading had been done through this blog, but in less than a year I had over 100 trades with TCDb's trade platform (I've just surpassed 200).  And almost all of those were trades proposed by others.  


I will say that time investment has more than paid for itself, just in the amount of unwanted cards I've gotten rid of and the amount of cards that have been sent to me.  I've been able to fill in holes in my  team sets, finish off set's I'd almost given up on, and managed to turn some of my lower end  autos and relic cards into the same for the teams I want.  It's been a very enjoyable experience and I've only had a couple of issues with some of my trades, but every trade I've entered into has been completed.

I also spent a lot of time during the pandemic sorting my boxes upon boxes of dupes and commons into team lots and have been slowly selling them off on eBay to help pay for my habit.  I still have teams left anyone wants to take a look or make an offer

If you've been a reader for the past decade, you may have noticed or not, that I didn't run my annual Super Bowl or World Series Contest.  That was a hard one for me, but I think it was a good decision to take a break.  I always love the interaction I have with you guys during that contest and I did miss it.

Will I be back to posting a lot on here?  Probably not, but I think I'll try to be a little more consistent and put out a post more than once a year.
