Two Hundred Reached, Passed, THANKS!!!!!!!

It isn’t exactly common practice for me to run a trade post from the same person two days in a row, but here I am posting more stuff from It’s Like Having My Own Cardshop.
This morning’s post came to me last month and I was just way behind in getting them scanned. Today, after class, I stopped at the post office and was greeted with a number of packages, including another (surprise) envelope from Dan. He had me the big stuff last month, before I had posted my team set want lists and this package tackled those. I am now about 6 steps closer on both the 1999 Topps team sets, including these 2 ’99 Traded Cards. He sent even more from the ever elusive (to me) 2000 Topps set as well. For those parties interested in helping me with the team set building, the list of what I need is here. Once school is done I will be adding Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome and Topps Heritage to the list, along with Topps Gold. All of my wantlists are updated and are on the side bar of this blog.The lone non-Topps issue in the package was an insert from 2009 O-Pee-Chee, a Midsummer Memories card of Carl Crawford, #MM11. This combined with the other package I received today from the always awesome Joe from Upstate New York puts me over the double century mark in the Crawford PC. You can view the list of all 204 amazing CC cards in the collection here. I was beginning to have my doubts if it was possible, but thanks to Dan, Joe and the rest of you out there, we made it!!!! The new goal is 250 before the first pitch of the 2010 season, but I am relax for a bit first, get all of these cards in their respective binders-which means buying binders, buying sleeves and dedicating an afternoon for pulling 200 cards out of top-loaders and stuffing them into pages. It sounds like hard work (not really) but I can’t wait! Thanks again Dan for making my day, gotta go to work and after work it is up all night writing my stupid thesis. Wish me luck! Go Rays! Happy Collecting! My condolences to Curtis Granderson fans everywhere! Troll out.


  1. Congratulations on 200! Good luck on 250! Glad I could be a small part of it.

  2. Congrats Troll, hope all is well!!!

  3. Good times. Did you get those Durham Bulls cards I sent you?
