Chumming the Waters

Since I'm new to the card blogging world, I figure I'm going to need to get some chum in the waters to attract some trades.  Here are a handful of "hits" that are available for trade.

To help sweeten the deal and to encourage participation, if you would like to trade for one or more of these cards, all I ask in return is one card from you that would fit into my personal collection (found at the top of this page) for each card that you claim.  What you send me does not have to be of equal value to what I'm sending you (i.e. an autograph for an autograph), it just needs to be something I collect.

Let me know in the comments  or send me an email -- -- if you would like to work out a trade.

One caveat, Dennis of Too Many Grandersons has first claim on the Manningham Sweet Swatches.

Some of the cards didn't scan very well so here is a list of what the cards are (left to right, top to bottom):
(UPDATE:  All of these cards have been traded away.)
  • Pablo Sandoval - SanFran Giants - 2010 Topps T206 Piedmont Auto TRADED to Dennis
  • Matt Tolbert - Minnesota Twins - 2010 Topps T206 Piedmont Auto
  • Livan Hernandez - Washington Nationals - 2010 Topps T206 GU Jersey
  • Ron Blomberg - NY Yankees - 2003 UD Yankees Sig Series (Its a buy back, I found it in a 2008 UD Documentary box I broke)  TRADED to Mike (BA Benny)
  • Eury Perez - Washington Nationals - 2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects Auto
  • Mario Manningham - Michgan Wolverines - 2010 Sweet Spot Sweet Swatches  TRADED to Dennis
  • Chris Smith - Boston RedSox - 2008 UD Documentary Seasonal Signatures
I'll be the first to admit that they aren't the most amazing cards in the world, but I'm sure someone out there would enjoy them more than I do and they will fit into someone else's collection better than they fit into mine.

Let the trading begin.

(And just so someone doesn't call "Card Protective Services" on me, most of the above cards are kept in clean, dry, supportive, protective, clear pages in a binder in my man-cave, so do not worry that they are being neglected.  They are in near-mint condition.  I'd even go so far as to say that some might classify these cards so well kept as to almost be eBay one-of-one cards.  Almost.)

Thanks for giving me dibs, you know I want that Super Mario. We'll work something out during or after the break next weekend. Just for this I'm gonna pull you the other letters you need for a Hosmer /5 name plate! (guarantee void everywhere)
