HOW I APPROACH TRADING:

  • Please understand when trading with me with that value is in the eye of the beholder, not necessarily what eBay says.  I do, however, understand when buying or selling that some basis of value needs to be applied.
  • My priority is growing the quantity of my collection, not necessarily the value of my collection.
  • If I have something you want, and you have something I want, let’s make it work.
  • I do my best to make trades even, but I don’t research the sale price of every card for every proposal I make.  Please don't get offended if I make an offer where the value is in my favor. I'm not trying to rip you off; I just want to make trade.
  • My offers are always negotiable.  If you aren't happy with an offer, please counter before declining.
  • If I decline a trade, I will always provide a reason.  Please, Please, Please offer me the same courtesy.  I really hate feeling like my offers are just ignored.
  • If you decline a trade with a response of values are a little off, I probably won't offer again.  It's not how I look at trading.
  • This is a hobby to me, not a business.  I'm not looking to make money and I know that my hobby will cost me money.  That said, I don’t understand the response it's not worth the postage.  If you aren't making a trade because of the cost of a stamp we are in this hobby for different reasons and probably won't make greatest trade partners.

TRANSACTING WITH ME:

  • Packaging: I prefer PWE.  I package trades up 6 cards in semi-rigid holder(s) with first class stamp.  Over 6 cards will be shipped in 9 pocket pages with cereal box cardboard.  Anything over 27 cards will ship BMWT.  I try to review packaging expectations before proposing a trade, but if you are particular with packaging, please make me aware before we both accept a trade.  If your packaging expectation isn't stated in advance, I'm packing how I see fit.
  • Shipping: I make regular trips to the post office and will attempt to mail things out the day after they are accepted.   I will only ship PWE internationally, not interested in filling out customs forms.
  • Trading: I don't have any restrictions on trades.  No minimums or maximums on cards in or out.  I'll do big lots for small lots or small lots for big lots.  I'll trade between eras and between sports.  I'll do inserts for commons or commons for inserts.  I just want both sides to feel like they've improved their collection when our trade is done.
  • Buying: I'm open to buying only add to my Ripken collection.
  • Selling: Will sell anything on my trade list for a reasonable price.

COLLECTING INTERESTS:

Primary PC - Cal Ripken Jr. (TCDB #6): My primary collection; I've been a collector since I was a kid.  I'll trade for anything I don’t have regardless of whether it's on my want-list or not.  I will trade from this collection, so long as I have the same number or more cards coming in as I do going out.  I'm selective on what I'm willing to deal from this collection based on how difficult it would be to replace it.

  • Always building the 2007 HOF insert sets:
    • Ultra Iron Man (complete)
    • SPx Iron Man (complete)
    • Upper Deck Commemorative (complete)
    • Upper Deck Ripken Chronicles (complete)
    • Upper Deck Road to the Hall (w/Gwynn) (complete)
    • Upper Deck Iron Men (w/Gehrig). (complete)
    • Spectrum Road to the Hall (74/100).

Secondary Orioles Collections:  I do cycle cards in and out of these collections, especially for current players.  If there is something you like here, message me and we may be able to work something out.  My want-list is small and I only collect base set and color variations, particularly orange or black parallels.  I am open to trading for stuff not on my want-list to facilitate a trade.  I do not chase inserts for this collection unless it’s an auto or relic card.

  • Secondary PCs (all O's uniform only, except rookies)
    • Brady Anderson
    • Gunnar Henderson
    • Jackson Holiday
    • Adam Jones
    • Manny Machado
    • Trey Mancini
    • Nick Markakis
    • Cedric Mullins
    • Eddie Murray
    • Mike Mussina
    • Jim Palmer
    • Boog Powell
    • Brian Roberts
    • Brooks Robinson
    • Frank Robinson
    • Grayson Rodriguez
    • Adley Rutschman
  • Top 50 Players; ranked by W.A.R.: Rookie cards for the 50 players (49/50), only missing Hoyt Wilhelm.  Check out my list!
  • Rookies:  Looking for major release, base set only, with RC/FS/FC/etc logo.
  • Minor Leaguers: I tend to only keep one card per player.  So, these are not available, although I may be open to a deal involving the same player.

Baseball Stars & HOFers: Unless you’re offering a better/older card of the same player, these aren't available.  I'm always interested in acquiring a card of a great baseball player, whether or not they are on my want-list.  Condition (on vintage) outside of creases and rips doesn't matter to me.  I'm more interested in the historical than monetary value for this collection.

1992 Topps Baseball: It may be the epitome of junk era cards, but this was the set that got me into collecting.  I built the set as a kid and its one of only 2 complete sets I have. Collection includes:

  • 1992 Topps (792 cards)
  • 1992 Topps Traded (132 cards)
  • 2012 Topps Archives (6 cards)
  • 2013 Topps Archives (3 cards)
  • 2017 Topps Archives (100 cards plus 6 SSP variations)
  • 2021 Topps Update Redux (50 cards)
  • 2022 Topps Archives (25 cards)
  • 2022 Topps Archives MLD autographs (15 cards).

Football and Hockey:  Buffalo Bills, Washington Football, and Buffalo Sabres cards.  Feel free to offer me anything I don't have, particularly off-base cards.  No college jerseys.  If you want something from me and we don't have any matches, feel free to offer me stuff from these teams.

  • Football and Hockey PCs:
    • Josh Allen (TCDB #24)
    • Sean Taylor (TCDB #6)
    • Chris Cooley (TCDB #4)
    • Paul Gaustad (just starting)

Non-sports: This collection is used to catalog my 90's Marvel sets.  None of this available.  If you are looking to trade and can't find matches, my kids are into Pokémon and I'll trade for insert cards (EX, GX, V, MAX, etc..) for them.
