OK fellas, I have some m ore trade to make, and I need your help! (I can't trade alone). Here are a few new cards, and I just put up about 80 new cards in my photobucket, so take a look at that too Click here to go to my Photobucket.
I have more cards to post to trade, and some to re post, but this will do for now. None of the cards are too amazing, but hopefully you will see something you like.
Mason patch #14 arrived in yesterdays mail! I love it, but alas, it is not unique, it is actually the third 2009 Absolute Heroes patch for me, I now own 3 of the 50 that were made. 6% total ownership...too bad it's not Microsoft. Still, It is number 14 on my quest for 24! Holla!
My mailbox smiled upon me today and delivered lucky number 13!!! This is my 13th Derrick Mason patch card. only 11 to go to reach my goal! this one is from a name plate (I am pretty sure it is the bottom of the "A" and the "S" on the nameplate). serial numbered 14/50.
I was going through my personal collection today, and looking at cards of some of my favorite players Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer, Roger Staubach, Nick Markakis, Ed Reed, Bill Bates...etc and so forth....
Then I came across my Derrick Mason cards. It is well known across the world, form the largest metropolitan areas to the smallest of villages, that Mason is one of my all time favorite football players. I decided to take a Mason patch count, and I was very pleased to see it has climbed to a dozen cards (10 unique)! But since I am never happy, I have set a goal to double that number by this time next year.
By the 2011 NFL opening Sunday I WILL have 24 (hopefully unique) Derrick Mason patch cards. I can achieve this because, although his career numbers are fantastic, he will be out-named in Baltimore by Anquan Boldin (I only have one patch card of him). Most of the Mason Patch cards are not super expensive, and that makes things a bit easier.
So I ask you, if you have a Derrick Mason patch card or printing plate (or jersey card, or serial #'d card), please trade it to me!
Here are just a few of my Mason Patch collection.
I also have 2 on the way, I will post them when I get them
Mason's 2010 season stats, as predicted by me, 58 reception for 568 yards and 10 touchdowns.
I still have a few trades in the works right now. It's funny, trading is kinda like dating. You start out all hot and heavy, then things gradually slow down until one of you feel like you are waiting for ever to hear from the other...getting jealous and bitter, "He is probably out trading with some other blogger." Then finally you talk again, and end up sealing the deal! (some people need a cigarette afterward).
First up is Tim. Tim Sent me a bunch of O's and Phillies that need for my team sets Highlighted by the following cards. A pretty clean trade, I sent him an A&G Melky Cabrera bat card and some Yankees .
Hackenbush just sent me these 2 Brooksy and the Jim Palmer cards by request. I offered to reciprocate, but he hasn't asked for anything in return. We will trade again one day, and I will secretly slide some extra cards in there for him to make up for it.
Steve Responded to one of my trade posts, and for a mere Topps Gold David Wright, College Threads Tom Seaver, Bowman Shane Victorino, and Heritage Chome Mike Piaza...he sent me some tough cards for team sets and a Javy Lopez bat and Todd Heap Jersey.
And finally BA Benny took a Giambi pinstripe jersey card and Donruss Threads Pete Rose insert card (and I do not remember what else, sorry) and sent me the following tasty morsels
I know that I have made a few trades recently that have not been posted, and for that I apologize. I promise to try to get them all posted in the future.
To all that have traded with me, I thank you. To all that are currently mixed up in a trade with me, I thank you in advance. And, to all that have not yet traded with me...stay tuned, because I will post another round of cards to trade soon, and I plan to add about 100 or so insert/serial # cards to my photobucket.
I am off to the card store for some supplies. Til we meet again......
Helloall, I have decided that that I want to trade away my Clemens cards. Since I am not a fan of the Red Sox, Yankees, and Blue Jays...and since I have always hated Roger Clemens, this seems like the only fair thing to do. Below is a list I made in 2005, so I may not still have all of them, but I promise that I still have about 99% of them. I may actually even have some more that are not listed. Let me know if you are interested. in any of them...or all of them.
So here's my deal. I am a baseball and football Card collector. I have a hockey card here and there and I look for great deals on the 50 greats NBA players of all time.
I am a fan of The Orioles, Phillies, Cowboys, Ravens, Flyers, and Capitals.
My heroes are Nick Markakis, Bill Bates, Derrick Mason, Emmitt Smith, Ray Rice, Brooks and Frank Robinson, Jason Witten, Adam Jones...etc....
