PROFILE UPDATED: August 29, 2022

my COLLECTING PRIORITIES:

I am both a set builder and a player collector.  In terms of set building, I collect hockey cards.  When I first got into the hobby in the 90s, I was more into baseball.  I quickly got into hockey and collected both sports but shortly after made the wholesale change to hockey cards.  I am also a Star Trek fan and collect those cards, as well as whatever other non-sport sets attract my or my kids' interest.

my PLAYER COLLECTION:

I often collect cards of certain players with the intent of getting them signed.  There are numerous means I use to get them signed, and even show every autographed card I have in my user lists: BaseballHockey (A-C)Hockey (D-F)Hockey (G-I)Hockey (J-L)Hockey (M-O)Hockey (P-R)Hockey (S-U)Hockey (V-Z).  The lists includes how I got them signed.  I even show a list of signed cards available for trading or selling: For Sale/Trade.

This player list changes frequently - sometimes more than weekly.  You can click on the name to see my wantlist for that player.  The list was last updated September 26, 2022:

my CARD CONDITIONS:

Cards from early-90s to earlier may have small imperfections.  The imperfections could include small corner damage, residue from cards being stuck together (bricking), 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 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.
  • My mailing day is Friday.  I'm simply too busy with other commitments to do multiple mail runs each week.  If you're in a particular rush to receive the cards please tell me so I can see if I can accommodate.
  • 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 utilize eBay sold listings, Beckett pricing guide and the TCDB card pricing as guides.
  • 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 - even less value than commons from late 90s and the 2000s.
  • I've tried to enter variants as accurately as possible, but if you are particular about a certain variant of a card (ex: type of hologram on back of UD hockey card from early 90s) please reach out so I can verify.

my PROMISE TO YOU:

I strive to be a trustworthy and reliable trading partner.  If you have any issues with our transaction, please let me know.  I will find a way to make up for it.  My ask is that you do the same.  No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes from time to time - it's how you handle those mistakes that truly says something about you.
