PROFILE UPDATED: June 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 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.  Some of these I keep and some are auctioned off to raise money for charity.

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 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.
