PROFILE UPDATED: November 30, 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 lost enough interest in baseball that I didn't want to collect those cards anymore.  I gave up collecting when I went away to university and didn't pick it up again until I found them in some boxes in my mother's loft last year.  I sorted them out, and decided to get back into collecting.

my SET COLLECTION:

My collection focuses on completing my old baseball,hockey, and non-sport sets from the 90s, beginning new hockey sets moving forward, as well as building hockey sets covering the 25 year gap between my collecting days.  I also keep an eye out for non-sport sets that interest me, either older sets or starting new ones.  The big example being Star Trek, but also have non-sport sets such as Lego, Transformers movies, Desert Storm, and more.

my PLAYER COLLECTION:

Through different means, such as playing in numerous charity hockey tournaments throughout the year (Easter Seals Classic, Baycrest Pro-Am, Hockey Helps the Homeless, etc.) with retired NHLers, I try to collect some of their cards to get signed.  Some of these I keep and some are used as fundraising tools for the above charity tournaments I play in.

my CARDS:

Cards from mid-90s to earlier may have small imperfections.  The imperfections could include small corner damage, residue from cards being stuck together, and other typical minor imperfections that comes with handling them a lot as I did as a teen.  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.

my CARD VALUE RATINGS:

  • 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 work that out.
  • I do use the TCDB card pricing as a loose guide.  I realize it can be way off but at the very least it provides a decent value starting point.
  • Among base cards/commons, I place the value of junkwax era cards (late 80s to mid90s) at the bottom of the list in terms of value.

my TRADING NOTES:

  • My first preference is to trade cards but am open to buying & selling cards.
  • My standard will be to send cards in PWEs (plain white envelopes), including multple PWEs in a single trade.  Bubble mailers, etc. will used on an as needed basis.
  • I send out cards on between Thursday and Saturdays.  I'm just too busy the other days of the week.
