I trade cards to build baseball, hockey, early 90's Canadian football, Nascar racing and some non-sport sets, but I don't buy or sell cards. I also have a sweet spot for oddball / food issue / regional sets. New cards are regularly added to my FT/S list.

All the cards I list here are NRMT or EX unless specified and I expect the same of you. I don't collect micro-variations (dots, stars, copyright marks, holograms, printing plate codes...), they're not fun to search and I dislike the incessant frequency with which new ones are added. I do all my best to check all my cards and to keep my lists up to date, but please ask me first, if micro-variations matter to you. I am fine with shipping cards in single or multiple PWEs, if the cards are properly packaged and I don't mind large or small transactions, but I currently prefer trades with 10 to 20 cards going each way or at least that the cards carry more value than the postage.

Besides helping to complete our collections one step closer each time, the opportunity would be nice to have traded with all the states, provinces and territories of North America. On this site only, I traded with members in 46 states, D.C., 9 provinces, N.W.T. and overseas. I can't wait to have a trade in Alaska, Delaware, North Dakota, Wyoming, Manitoba, Nunavut and Yukon. However, if you don't live in the above juridictions, you're still more than welcome to trade with me. At this time, I prefer to trade with members in Canada, U.S. and U.K. only, but I am not saying an absolute no to other countries.

I'm an easy going, helpful and patient guy, but here's now my turn to announce that my NO TRADE LIST is growing due to an increased lack of civility on the forums and the full site. If (1) you nitpick and/or always have an opinion on anything and/or act like you own the site and you're not Admin or (2) you do not respond to counters or decline without expressing a reason or don't PM me to ask more time after several days of wait or (3) you send me ridiculous off-balanced offers or (4) you accept the trade and you can't mail your cards in a timely manner or you send me loose or severly damaged cards or (5) have a brand new (empty) account without info / feedback and ask for valuable cards or (6) you clearly didn't read my profile (ask first, at least) and ask me to buy your cards or trade overseas or such things, then chances are that you just won a place on my NO TRADE LIST regardless of how much I may want what you have. I continue to enjoy trading cards, but all the reasons above and the lack of opting out of micro-variations (just a default / any var. / unverified option for each card) are eroding my desire to contribute here. Also, don't forget that international shipping is very easy, but costs are more for BOTH traders (not just from the U.S.). Meanwhile, keep on trading!

Tip to save on shipping costs to Canada: use PWEs (Plain White Envelopes) and avoid bubble envelopes, plastic boxes and big stacks of cards. Ship as flat as you can (cut 9 pocket pages in 3 rows and insert 4-5 cards in each pocket). The more it looks like a greeting card or documents mailed in a regular letter instead of a package, the more it tends to be cheaper to ship. Current U.S. to Canada first class postage rate (up to 2 oz) is $1.30 and if non-machinable, $1.60. If you don't have Global Forever stamps handy, three regular Forever stamps work as well. There's also no need to pay $14.25 for shipping with international tracking, because it is too expensive, it will be way slower to arrive and Canada Post won't track your postal item anyway. Overall, postal service tends to be slower in Canada and at times a bit harder difficult to predict, but it is as reliable as in the U. S.. Starting on July 2022, I am shipping on Mondays and Fridays, but it is still very plausible that I ship the same or the next business day. Just remember that Canada Post doesn't pick up or deliver on Saturday and Sunday. No cross-border shipping by Fedex or UPS: they charge $40.00+ custom brokerage on each and every package they handle no matter if it is duty free or not.

Looking to build up my Gretzky collection before retiring from collecting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I have something you want but don't have any cards to offer feel free to make me a money offer. I will sell anything I have on my sale trade list

I have just passed my 100th trade mark and it happened with a member from Florida. When getting closer to the 100 mark I thought to myself I want to do something with whomever it is that will be my 100th trader. Well it just so happens that this member is building sets and is working on the 1977 Topps football set so I've decided to offer or pay forward all of the cards I have of that set and to pay for the shipping cost. Just my way of saying thanks. If I ever reach the 200th trade mark I'm going to do the same thing again so keep the trades coming.

I can't believe I was able to make it to 200 trades but I did. The lucky trader that was my 200th is Ricky Bobby out of Ottawa Canada and I will be sending him a package this weekend. A mix of baseball and football cards that he has on his wantlist. To you Ricky Bobby a giant thanks for the trades we have put together and to all of the members I have traded with, many thanks. Not sure if I will make it to 300 trades but if I do we'll be doing this again. Cheers to everyone. 

To all the members -  I hope you are all doing well and being safe.

Restarted collecting hockey cards in 2017ish to build a collection for my son. Looking to buy/sell and trade for cards I want/need! Thanks in advance.

Currently, I am slowly starting to update my Sell/Trade lists. If you see cards in my Personal Collection that you need, however; DO NOT hesitate to ask me about them as I may have multiple copies that just haven't been uploaded yet. It never hurts to ask. We may be able to help each other out. 

Other than the sets I am trying to finish, I also PC the San Jose Sharks and Manon Rheaume. Any help would be appreciated.

If we have done deals, smoothly or not, could you please leave feedback? Thanks

I’ve been collecting cards for over 46 years and have over 395,000 unique cards in my main collection, including some nice vintage stuff.  I collect older cards of the four major sports but lately I've been expanding to some more recent sets.  I'm primarily a Set Builder and I’m looking for other like-minded set builders to trade with.   I’ve accumulated tons of extra cards that I would like to trade away with almost 250,000 cards in my current For Trade list.  Big trades don't bother me. I have a huge Want List, so hopefully you have something I need.  Feel free to make me an offer. 

For Canadian Traders: It's expensive for me to trade across the border.  Going forward I would like to limit cross border trades to two (2) PWEs. That's about 54 standard-size cards.  Thanks.

For Anyone Outside US/Canada: The increased postal rates have made it impossible for me to trade outside North America cheaply.  So going forward I will have to decline trades from outside US/Canada.  Sorry about that.

Update on Donruss/Leaf * Variations and Upper Deck Holo Variations:
I can't guaranty the junk wax era Donruss/Leaf cards and the UD holo variations are listed with the correct variation.  Going forward I will no longer check the variations on these cards.  If you want these cards regardless of the variations, feel free to request them in the trade.  Howver, If you want a specific variation of these cards, I'm no longer your guy - please don't put them in the trade request.  For all other cards that have variations, I will contniue to check and make sure you get the correct one.

Note on Vintage Cards:
I have over 6,000 vintage cards listed for trade (I consider vintage to be 1977 or earlier).  For each card I've noted a condition grade and if you check closer, a note on each regarding any condition issues (be sure to select the correct one if multiple cards are shown).  Please note that I'm by no means a professional grader and if you're hyper-sensitive on card condition, please message me first and I'd be happy talk about it.  In exchange for these cards I have three priorities:

  • 1) similar vintage cards that I need (any sport)
  • 2) inserts for my 90s sets that I need (any sport)
  • 3) or non-junk era base cards that i need as a last resort (any sport)

Note on Card ConditionA card noted as Pr, Fr, Gd, or GdVg will have some obvious condition issues such as creasing, corner wear, or marks.  I would consider them place holders in a collection at best (I've listed them because some people do want place holders).  A VG card will usually be a clean card with some corner wear or a centering issue.  For me, VG would be the bare minimum for my personal collection.  EX will be nice sharp card and VgEx will be something just between VG and Ex, still a nice card with a small issue that prevents it from being EX.  NM in vintage is a tough find.

Recently joined T.C.D.B, and must say I am not tech savy but am finding this site very easy to navigate through.

I have quite a large collection of cards covering all the 4 major sports and am looking to trade with other members of the hobby.

I also feel it's worth noting that any of my cards are open to cash offers.

Please leave feeback after a sucessful trade and I will do the same for you. THANKS!

  • When offering a trade please try to offer similar cards in your proposal. Base for base, insert for insert etc. I have been getting a lot of trade offers from members that fill their side of the trade with quite a few insert cards and just offer me mostly base in return. I have done trades like this in the past but am now declining such trades. Please keep this in mind when proposing a trade. THANKS!!
  • Also note that most low end card trades will be mailed out in a PWE (plain white envelope). If you'd like a bubble mailer please let me know as postage may be more depending on the destination.
  • I will consider cards that are not on my Want List (Hockey - preference given to Toronto Maple Leaf cards) so feel free to add those (Hockey cards) if you are looking for a trade but don't have much for cards that are on my Want List. I can always use them in furutre trades to other members.

Currently collecting: Johnny Bower, Allan Bester, Mike Palmateer, Felix Potvin, Ed Belfour (Leafs), Curtis Joseph and Frederik Andersen, Jack Campbell, Tiger Williams, Wendel Clark, Tie Domi, Wade Belak, Colton Orr and any other Toronto Maple Leaf "tough guy/Enforcer". Trading preference will be given to members offering these player cards over those who are offering others on my want list. Also trying to collect Toronto Maple Leaf team sets from "ANY YEAR".

Also interested in "any Leaf vintage" hockey cards and Toronto Maple Leaf goalie cards pre 1989 and older.

Added some Marvel, DC (comics) and Kiss (band) cards to my want list. I am still adding these to my want list so if you don't see them when offering a trade, then I'll more than likely still like them for my PC. Also interested in some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cards for my step-son will be adding those to my want list soon.

 Looking forward to some trades :)

I have added Carey Price to cards I'd like to collect. These would be for my grandson who is 11 years old and he's a HUGE Price fan. Just looking for inexpensive cards as him being so young you know how kids treat cards. He also plays hockey as a goalie. Feel free to hit me up for some trades as I did add some base (among others) to my want list for him. I will coninue to collect cards for him and gift them to him over the years as well.

I pretty much collect Hockey, and Basketball and non sport. I do have a large collection of over 250 000 cards that i am trying to get into the system here but as you are aware it takes a while to get them in. If you dont see anything in my collection just ask as i might have. I am looking to complete sets. I love trading as it keeps thewife off my ass about spending money on this but if i don't have a trade that you need but have cards i want please send me a price and i would be willing to look at it.

My Parkhurst, Tim Hortons, McDonalsds, Fleer (skybox, Flair) Pro Set, Donruss, Panini, OPC, Pinnacle, Topps Ultimate, in the game, Pacific,Leaf, Bowman and Classic and finally upper deck  and Score complete,  I also have a love for Star trek and would look at any deal on those cards. Now my hockey is done, i am going to add my 100 000 baseball and then my basketball. Please don't send me Deals on baseball, or basket ball as of yet until i get my collections in, i have many boxes to add, the ones in this system were what i had in binders.

Also my vinatage cards have been with me for years, if you very concerned over the condition of them please ask for my email and provide me with yours so i can send pics, my cards are in great shape for being with me over the years, no tears or folds but i would be happy to show you condidtion if your that serouis collector who wants mint. 

thanking for looking and i hope we can make a trade.

I am a person with a fast turn around, in most cases if we have a deal today, the cards will be sent tomorrow. I expect the same from you as well. I also check to make sure we are trading dollar for dollar. I dont do card for card unless they are same value or enough cards make up the value. Please don't send one or two card trades, lets make the biggest deal possible, or least the deal should be more then postage, and please make sure you put the transaction number on the envelope or somewhere inside the package, so many people don't and if your like me who have many deals going at once it makes it very hard to figare out what deal it is with out the number.

Also i have been trading for a while now, and the 2 biggest problems i have is the amount of tape people use to wrap the cards, please try to use as little as possible, and second please put the trading id on something in the package. I have any where from 5 to 20 deals happing at all times, its sucks when you have to go through deal by deal to find the transaction. It would be so much easier if the transaction id was printed on something inside, thank you. (Also your name and trading name would be a bonus as well)

Wow just hit over 100 trade deals, crazy time flies when your having fun! looking forward to hitting the 200 or 250 deal. Will have to do somethign special for the 250th Deal!.
