Trade Bait!!! Page #1, Nine at a Time...

Okay, I have been talking about the mess my collection has been in and all of the sorting that I have been doing lately. I am slowly getting things organized, getting cards in binders, getting lists up to date. Today I decided to eliminate the clutter. I have been sorting base card dupes by brand and separating them with labeled index cards, but I was just leaving everything else in a big stack. Today I decided to sort out all of the dupes (Sps, inserts, and relics) and put them in sleeves and start a trade binder. I started that project today and I have 13 pages full, so far. Some pages are better than others. Some of them aren’t too exciting at all, but I would guess that someone out there needs every single one of these cards. That someone might not read this blog, but I am gonna post them anyway. Each post will be of 9 different cards (or 15 if they are minis). If you want something, claim it ONLY if you have something to offer in return OR if I owe you (there are a few people that I owe pretty big). Please don’t just claim if you know you don’t have anything I need. My primary focus is finishing Heritage sets, building the 2009 Topps GOLD team set, finishing any Rays team sets and building my collection of Rays autographs as well as Carl Crawford, Jonny Gomes, Brian Roberts, Pat Neshek , Ben Zobrist and Jason Bartlett cards. All of my want lists are linked on the side bar at the top of this blog. Okay, now that is out, here are the first nine. In an effort to appease Braves fan extraordinaire (and big scary guy) Captain Canuck, I picked this page first because it DOES have a Brave on it. Okay, who wants what???
All cards on this page are from 2009 Topps or 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights…
1. Andrew Bailey Propaganda Poster #PP15
2. Mark Teixeira Propaganda Poster #PP21
3. Brian McCann GOLD #UH249 PENDING
4. Scott Hairston GOLD #UH13
5. Derek Jeter GOLD #UH131 PENDING
6. Classic Combos Leyland/LaRussa GOLD #UH88 PENDING
7. Geoff Blum GOLD #UH104
8. Mark Buehrle GOLD #UH182
9. Babe Ruth Legends of the Game PLATINUM #LLP21
Okay, that was page one. MANY more pages to come. There will be relics, autographs, SPs, minis, inserts and more Topps stuff like this. Please claim cards in the comments section and email your offer to me at bacontowne at yahoo dot com. Again, all of my want lists are on the top sidebar. Keep on checking back. I will likely post 1 or 2 of these per day, plus group break packs, trade packages and the normal LONG and winding road stuff... Lets make a deal!
Go Rays! Troll out.


  1. McCann please. I know I have a Crawford you don't have. I'll email you tomorrow...

  2. I actually didn't even know about the Leyland/LaRussa card (which means I need the base card, too), so I'd love the gold card.

    I'm also interested in any propaganda inserts so long as no one else claims them. I'd like to complete that insert set someday, but it's way back on the backburner along with the 2008 Topps 50th Anniversary Rookie Cup inserts or whatever it's called.

  3. Hey troll, This is all well and good, but I cannot find your email. I want to trade with the troll... see me for some killer cards. I will dig for your pref.s tonight when I get home from work.

  5. Hey, I'm interested in the Jeter Gold. Please shoot me an email with what it will take to get it :)
