Trade starters

Big long picture post here.  I was able to grab a decent lot of cards recently.  Some of it I will be keeping, and some of it, once I got it in hand, I knew it would be trade fodder.  Lots of shiny and serial numbered. Some brand new stuff, some older stuff too, even some vintagey stuff. 

I'll be showing off the cards I will be keeping soon, but today's post are cards I would rather turn into keepers.  You know, trade??  I don't really know that any of this is anything anyone wants, but if you do, let me know!  Leave a comment or shoot me an email.  I am probably open to all sizes of trades, single card, larger PWE or if we get that far, larger packages.

Adam Dunn - 2005 Donruss Throwback Threads - Polo Grounds #/25
Mike Zunino - 2016 Topps Triple Threads - Triple Threads Unity Single Jumbo Relics - Emerald #/18
Carlos Zambrano - 2005 Finest Green Refractor #/199

I have always kind of liked those Polo Grounds cards.  Low numbered, all of them.  The Zunino and Zambrano (double Z's!) both look great, just don't really fit my collection.

Trevor Bauer - 2013 Bowman Chrome Purple Refractor #/199
Anthony Rendon - 2014 Bowman Chrome Refractor #/500
Mark Trumbo - 2013 Finest Orange Refractor #/99
Nolan Arenado - 2020 Donruss Elite Series #/999
Kris Bryant - 2020 Donruss Season Stat Line #/650
Kris Bryant - 2020 Donruss Season Stat Line #/650 (Yes, 2 of the exact same card)

My new scanner sure seems to like the refractors.  It scans them quite nicely.  Plainer cards don't show quite as well.

Corey Kluber - 2020 Donruss Fire Emoji #/75
Yandy Diaz - 2020 Donruss Fire Emoji #/75
Jorge Soler - 2020 Donruss Fire Emoji #/75
Paul Goldschmidt - 2020 Donruss Elite Series Pink Fireworks
Trey Mancini - 2020 Donruss Presidential Emoji #/50
Jean Segura - 2020 Donruss '100' Emoji #/100

A bunch of 2020 Donruss!  The Goldschmidt is nice looking.  The others, which are 'emoji' parallels, I might be too old and crotchety for.  That didn't stop me from keeping a couple as you will see in a later post.

The '100' emoji's are #/100 (duh)
The 'Fire' emoji's are #/75
The 'Presidential' emoji's are #/50  They are supposed to be silhouettes of past US presidents.

Victor Martinez 2002 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects - Refractor #/300.  Kind of a sweet card, but it's not for me.
Jose Bautista 2002 Topps Chrome Traded & Rookies.  I never got on the Joey Bats train.  Don't know why.
Gerrit Cole 2012 Bowman Platinum - Top Prospects.  This one scanned really bright!
Gerrit Cole 2010 Bowman Platinum - Prospects - Purple Refractor
Monte Irvin Auto W/ COA 1992 Front Row.  Interesting card.
Paul Goldschmidt 2011 Topps Update.  Duplicate, so it's up for trade.
Thurman Munson 1972 Topps In Action.  Another dupe.  Off center to the left.
Joe Foy 1969 Topps - Deckle Edge #22a.  These are pretty tough to find.  This one has a crease near Joe's eye, and some surface damage that can't be seen in the scan.  However, if you are one of those folks who has been trying to track one of these down, it's available!

Jimmy Wynn 1969 Topps - Deckle Edge #11a.  This one is in better condition.  Pretty nice!!

Like I said, if you want to trade, comment or email!


  1. I would be interested in the Paul Goldschmidt rookie card.

  2. I'm definitely interested in the pink Goldschmidt, and maybe one of the Kris Bryants (I'm starting to work up a sizable Cubs debt with some people.)

  3. Great stuff! Nothing that catches my eye but hopefully there are others that will jump on in

  4. I owe you way too much (I'm currently working on a stack though) to try and get anything else from you, but that Monte auto sure is awesome, and I'm really surprised that no one else has shown any interest in it. Also, that Joe Foy isn't easy to come by, I'm kind of surprised that you'd be looking to move it.

    1. Thanks, they are cool cards. The Foy is a duplicate, or I wouldn't move it.

  5. Nice tradebait. For a brief second, I thought that Arenado was a superfractor.

    1. It would take 999 superfractors to add up to that card!

  6. I'd be interested In The deckle edge cards. I'll have to see what mcgwire cards I have that you need.

    1. Sounds good! I wouldn't have thought I would have parted with those rare of cards, but dupes are dupes. Let me know what you find!

  7. Would love to have the Irvin auto. Don't forget to come pickin' Sunday evening. I'll have the cards up around 8-9pm est. :) I'll see if I can drum up anything from your lists.
