Still Trading

Hey fellas and gals, I haven't been around much, too busy with the new gig in South Carolina. But I miss the community. While I'm not posting much, I am still trading and I just updated the ol' trade bait page, which is linked up at the top. 

Here are a few of the highlights I just added:

If you see anything you need, let me know. I'm always looking for neat Tigers hits and cool cards for my player collection.

Trade Bait by Team: Every Team Updated: The Dishes Are Done, Man

Now that I'm firmly grounded in South Carolina, I have a chance to wrap up my series of trade bait page updates. Just in case you missed it, I posted tons of new bait and organized it by team. You can now find it organized as such in the Trade Bait link at the top of the page. And I strongly encourage you to take a stroll and let me know if anything strikes your fancy. I'm always up for a good trade. 

Today, I'm adding a few more new goodies. These are fresh off the scanner:

If you see anything you need, leave a comment or email me. And, again, there's plenty more where this comes from over at the trade bait page.

Tigers Fan Turned Southerner, or New State = New Team

The reason I haven't posted in a long time is I've been moving my family from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Rock Hill, South Carolina. It was a crazy move, a twelve-hour drive through the mountains, into a completely different climate. I packed an entire house into a single PODS unit, cancelling my second PODS and saving about $1500. Anyway, besides being a master of extreme Tetris, I'm now a southerner. The local team now, I guess, is those guys in Atlanta. So, I guess that makes me a Braves fan now?

Here's one of my favorite Braves cards in my collection that I've had for a while. The design is a bit lackluster--weird early 2000s digi-chic--but I love the jersey piece. It has some odd stitching showing through. I'm not sure what it is, but it's cool looking, and it's Maddux, The Professor, which is also my title now that I've moved down south, which is why I moved, for a really fantastic dream job.

But does that make me a Braves fan?

Hell no!

I'll still take an Inge auto over a sweet Maddux GU.

Or some Greenberg vintage, no matter how creased.

Even a Miggy jersey (thanks Adam over at Topps Baseball Fanatic) where he's wearing the wrong jersey, even when his giant contract swallowed his swing, I'm still always going to collect Tigers and be a Tigers fan. 

But I'm all settled and ready for a crazy new semester down south.

Trade Bait by Team: The Miscellaneous and The Teamless

OK, last one today in this long series of trade bait by team. I've posted my bait of every team, except for the Tigers (mine!) and the Braves (already scooped up by other great traders), and I have almost everything out there. 

But there's still more. Always more. So, we have the uncategorized, the unteamed, or the confusing. Like this Reggie: 

Ike Davis and Reggie showing college colors. And Angie Duke (poker player) from Ginter.

A bunch of Heritage Minors autos.

More minor league autos. Neshek's auto is so freaking neat.

And, finally, a slew of yet more minor league autos. That's a baby Byrd of the Marlon variety in the bottom right. 

If interested in any of these, let me know.

Trade Bait by Team: Mets and Rays

This post will wrap up the trade bait by teams, but I have a bit more randomness soon.

Anyway, meet the Mets:

Lots of Robertos to be had, and a confused partly-Padres Piazza.

Next up, last up, the Rays:

Bunch o' autos, and now for the pants.

As usual, see anything you like, let me know.

Trade Bait by Team: Team America, Coming Again to Save the Mother F-ing Day Yeah!

Happy 4th, everyone. Today's trade bait is organized by patriotism. Do you like Amurica? Hell yeah!

Smell that freedom of American ink!

They may be black, white, and gray, but these swatches scream America.

More America!

And the rest of America, with a patch up top! An American patch! Whew!

Just let me know if you're interested, and then go watch some fireworks.

Trade Bait by Team: Rangers and Pirates

Not many more teams to go in this trade bait extravaganza. Up first, some Rangers. I don't have a ton, due to all the awesome Rangers traders out there who always seem to have cards I need. 

Anyway, here come the Chuck Norrises:

And some Pirates:

Oddly enough, Al Oliver shows up in both of these batches. That's him in the top right corner, and at the very bottom with the Rangers. Intriguing.

Let me know if you're interested in anything.

Trade Bait by Team: Reds and Nationals

Oh boy, I'm nearly through this series, and excited about lining up a bunch of great trades. Let's start off today with trade bait from the Reds:

Giant bat barrel Perez needs a good home. That card is so thick it takes five top loaders and its own 800-count box just to store it. 

Onto the Nationals:

See anything you like, let me know. My want lists are up at the top. Thanks for looking.
