TL;DR: 

  • I will always default to PWE trades (up to ~30 cards or 3.5 oz), unless we discuss other shipping options first.
  • I prefer trading over buying/selling. 
  • Feel free to trade anything for anything else, such as cross-sport, vintage for modern, baseball for Star Wars, etc. If you want it and you have something I want, propose it.
  • Sometimes it takes me a few days to get trades approved and out the door, but I do try to be prompt.
  • I am open to all sizes of trades.
  • This is a hobby - HAVE FUN :)

I'm always down for PWE trades. If there's not a lot that I match with, send it anyways and I'll take a look at your For Trade list to see if we can come to a deal. Same with my proposals, please feel free to counter with something that works for you. Or sometimes there's not a good trade at the time, no big deal. 

I've recently picked up sports card collecting as a hobby to help deal with my stress and mental health. I've collected as a child and had some of my best memories around baseball and cards. Thus, my approach is laid-back and easy. If you have an issue with any part of a trade, please drop me a note and allow me to work it out with you. Maybe I forgot a card, or sent you the wrong thing, or I missed a corner or something - just let me know and we'll fix it. Again, NO. BIG. DEAL.

I do work so I don't always have time to pull cards and take them to the Post Office right away. I do take them into the Post Office since we have drop box thieves running around in my area, so I can only go during business hours. But I don't like people waiting on me so I'll get the cards out within a few business days.

The fun part:

All-time favorite and main target is Cal Ripken Jr - my childhood hero that I modelled my entire work ethic after. I have ~350 different variations (no duplicates) of his cards in my personal collection.

I'm also really big on Shohei, I'm a huge Manchester United fan, and I live in Fort Worth so I support all the DFW teams (TX Rangers, Dallas Cowboys/Stars/Mavs/etc).

Here's a list of players I look out for:

  • Cal Ripken Jr
  • Shohei Ohtani
  • Ed Belfour
  • Paul Scholes
  • Kirby Puckett
  • Ty Cobb
  • Buster Posey
  • Ichiro Suzuki
  • Tony Gwynn
  • Hope Solo
  • Rickey Henderson
  • Marty Turco
  • Jamie Benn
  • Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez (TX Rangers only)
  • Brendan Morrow
  • Wayne Rooney
  • Ryan Giggs
  • Marcus Rashford
  • Nolan Ryan
  • Mike Schmidt
  • Lou Gehrig
  • Bryce Harper
  • Mickey Mantle
  • Javier "Chicarito" Hernandez 
  • Ruben Sierra/Julio Franco (TX Rangers only)
  • Current TX Rangers players and prospects
  • Current Women's US National Team Soccer Players

Favorite Teams:

  • Manchester United
  • Dallas Stars
  • Texas Rangers
  • FC Dallas
  • Dallas Cowboys
  • Dallas Mavericks

I also have a fascination with old-school cigarette cards of many topics, not just baseball.

GO RANGERS!!

Today is very special for me, the city of Arlington, the entire DFW Metroplex, and all Rangers fans. I grew up in a trailer park JUST south of the of the Ballpark in Arlington (the pretty stadium, not the current one). My home was nestled up against a creek, and we had a well-beaten path through the creek directly into the South parking lots. EVERY big play, EVERY home run we would hear the crowds roar, we would hear the fireworks, we would hear the announcers. And of course we would hear it all on the radio (no TV for home games back then). The radio had a small delay, so the crowd would tip us off to a home run before the radio would call it. As kids, we would mow lawns, do physical labor around the neighborhood to earn a few dollars to go to the games. If we had no money, we would go up there during the 7th inning and walk in for free for the last few innings. I can still hear the home run music, still hear the roar of a Nolan Ryan strike out. Still remember the smell of the ballpark. The grind of making that extra money for dollar hotdog night. Still remember sitting in the stands, scoring the game in the program (or bringing my own paper to score with). Last night brought that all back to me, allowing me to relive it all again today. Thank you Texas Rangers for allowing me to experience that kind of child-like joy and for bringing back those good memories again.
