Trade Bait: A Smorgasbord

I have been organizing/downsizing my cards this week and thought someone might be interested in these non-hits.  If you would like any/all of these cards, please email me and we'll work out the details of a trade.  I'm not looking for much in return, just something that will fit into my personal collection.

First up are a pile of 1990 Swell "Baseball Greats".  I've included some of these cards in previous trades and everyone seemed to like them, so I thought I'd see if anyone would like specific cards or even the entire pile.

Here is a sampling of what I have (the entire list below the scans).

And the backs look like this:

I've not done any research on this set, so I have no other information than to list out the players I have.  Also, if you are already collecting this set and just need to know the card numbers, I can get those for you.
  • Bob Gibson
  • Johnny Vander Meer
  • Jim Bouton
  • Dick Groat (2x)
  • Lou Brock (2x)
  • Bobby Thompson (2x)
  • Johnny Mize
  • Lou Boudreau
  • Ron Santo
  • Luke Appling (2x)
  • Dave Kingman
  • Frank Torre (2x)
  • Matty Alou
  • Bill White
  • Alvin Dark (2x)
  • Jimmy Piersall
  • Billy Williams
  • Ken Holtzman
  • Al Hrabosky
  • Tom Tresh
  • Bobby Richardson
  • Bobby Shantz (2x)
  • Jerry Coleman
  • Graig Nettles
  • Rick Ferrell
  • Bill Virdon
  • Manny Sanguillen
If no one contacts me about the Swell cards in the next couple of weeks, I'll probably try to get a buck or two for them on eBay. 

I also came across these Diamond Kings while searching for Mustache Cards and remembered that someone was working on those sets, but couldn't remember who.  If it's you, email me and we'll work on a trade.

Finally, I also came across these nine TCMA cards.

And a scan of the backs.

I'm sure there is someone out there who would appreciate these cards more than I do.  I'm not looking for much in return for any of the above cards.  If you have anything that would fit within my personal collection, lets work out a trade.

I would try to trade you out of the Virdon but I happen to already have it. You may try hitting yo Wicked Ortega from My Past Time....I Love It, because he is a Virdon collector also. he may actually collect a few of those other guys as well.

I can use the Kiner and any of the Yankees (no Mets in the old time odball sets). I will add some more stuff to your growing pile I have here.
