Too many youngsters

 You may have noticed that in the last month, I have only posted twice, and they were both posts trying to give away unwanted cards.  Yeah, this is one of those posts.  If you don't care about my reasons (which is fine!) and just want cards, skip the next paragraph to get to the claiming procedures.

So I gradually accumulate cards of the young, and mostly unproven players out there in hopes that they will make it big someday.  Since I don't buy packs, these cards are usually just dime box fodder, nothing major or awesome.  This year, I have accumulated way too many, and they are starting to take up room I don't want them to.  So I went through the stack and pulled out some that I don't need.  These are either players I don't want to hold anymore, or more commonly, dupes.  So I am hoping you all can take some off my hands!!

Claiming procedures:

There are over 60 cards here up for grabs.  I would REALLY rather not send out 15 or 20 PWEs to get rid of these, so I am imploring you to be greedy if you can.  I plan to send out up to 9 cards in a PWE, and the closer you can get to 9 cards (or 18, or 27...) the better for my shipping costs.  That said, if you can only find 1 or 2 you want, I won't hold it against you.

Claim cards the common way we see on the blogs, by page number and card number on that page.  So if you wanted the Jo Adell 'Prismatic Prodigies' card, that would be Page 1 - card 4.  If you want to describe the card to make sure, that is fine, but I will be mailing out by page/card numbers.

First come, first served.  Nothing required in return.  Claiming will end on Christmas eve at 5 PST, after that, unclaimed cards will go into some dusty boxes here to be looked at 5 years from now.

  4. Could i get 1.7, 1.8, 2.1, 3.5, 4.4, 5.2, 5.4, 7.5, 7.7? Please, and thank you, DK.

  5. Thank you so much! I really enjoy your blog when there is a new post. I am interested in the following cards:

    Page 2 card 4 and 9
    Page 3 card 6
    Page 5 card 1
    Page 6 card 6
    Page 7 card 9
    Page 8 card 3,4 and 5

    1. Tim, the cards on page 8 were already claimed, but the rest will be going out soon!

  6. looks like you got the near dozen PWE's. Merry Christmas

  7. I'll take page one card 9
    page two cards 3, 8
    page three cards 1, 3, 4, 7, 8
    page four cards 2, 5
    page five cards 1, 2
    page six cards 4, 9
    page seven cards 2, 6, 8


    1. Page 5 cards 1 and 2 were already claimed, but the rest are yours!

    2. Oops. I must have missed that. :)

    3. If nobody claims any more cards, I can just take the rest off your hands. My younger brothers have been asking me about it, and I know that you want to go easy on shipping costs.

  8. It's awesome to see so many giveaways on the blogs these days. When you toss the ones that haven't been claimed into that dusty box... you should do a blog series on them in five years. Maybe there will be another crazy hobby boom... and some "pay for college" cards will be lurking in that box.
