PROFILE UPDATED: April 6, 2021

my BACKGROUND:

I got into sports in the early 90s with baseball being my first love, so I started collecting those cards.  I quickly expanded into hockey around the same time and that became my first love and I gave up baseball.  I stopped collecting cards shortly thereafter all the way until early 2020 when I came across my old collection.  I sorted it out, and decided to get back into card collecting.

my SET COLLECTION:

I have completed most of my early 90s sets but have just a few more to go.  I've also focused on sets between then and now, as well as new sets that come out each season.  I do have a few baseball sets from the early 90s but do not collect them anymore, instead focusing on hockey.  I am also a Star Trek fan so I have an interest in those sets.  I do have some oddball sets as well (ex: Lego).

my PLAYER COLLECTION:

Through different connections, such as playing in numerous charity hockey tournaments throughout the year (Easter Seals Classic, Baycrest Pro-Am, Hockey Helps the Homeless) with retired NHLers, I try to collect some of their cards to get signed and then auctioned off to raise money for charity.  If you have cards of these players that are not specifically on my wantlists I will likely be interested in them.

my CARDS:

Cards from mid-90s to earlier may have small imperfections but overall are in very good condition.  Imperfections could include small corner damage, residue from cards being stuck together, etc.  The Lego cards may also have small bends in them (they are meant to be played with after all).  If condition is of the upmost importance to you please ask for photos which I will provide.  I am not interested in being deceitful.

my TRADING NOTES:

  • My current first priority is to trade for players in "my player collection" list, but will consider all trades for cards on my wantlist.
  • My first preference is to trade cards but am willing to buy & sell if necessary.
  • I am not overly concerned with exact $ for $ value trades.  I only ask it be in reasonable.  I realize that is completely subjective but we can easily work it out.  My logic is the extra cards I have are there to be used to get the cards I still need.
  • My standard will be to send cards in PWEs (plain white envelopes), including multple PWEs in a single trade.  Bubble mailers and the like will used on an as needed basis (high value cards, etc.)
  • I send out cards on Wednesdays and the weekend.  I'm just too busy the other days of the week.
