I Can't Stop Posting About 2010 Topps! Plus the Joy of a Completed Page and 2010 TRADEBAIT!!!

I broke down and bought a few more packs of 2010 Topps. The more I rip it, the more I like it. I picked up 9 packs which wiped out my local Target. I still have the same issues with poor collation, crappy inserts clogging every single pack and the redundancy of Tales of the Game and History of the Game, but I really like the design, I like the value (12 cards for 2 bucks), I like the excitement of the Million Card Giveaway AND I am really excited about the season about players arriving for spring training and opening day approaching fast. All of those led to me picking up another 8 packs. I am at 77 cards away. I have pulled all of the Rays, Pirates and Orioles cards and pulled off a few trades, but I still do have a few dupes left to trade. I also experienced the JOY OF A COMPLETED PAGE! I have many more cards on their way to me, floating around the USPS, but it feels good to fill up a page. Here is what I have available to trade. You can find my WANT LIST HERE. I am chasing all of the insert sets right now and I really want to get my hands on Rays cards in black and gold. Here is what is up for grabs. I want to trade only for Rays inserts or cards from my list right now…Please check out my 2010 Topps want list, I will add these cards to it.

By the way, I am presently in debt to a few bloggers. In particular Thoughts and Sox, Saints of the Cheap Seats, Democratic Roadkill, Cobb and Halladay, Mr. Scott, Carl Crawford Cards and Cards on Cards (to name a few). Any time you guys see something you need, claim it cuz I owe you. That said there are quite a few people out there who still owe me-I haven't forgot, hope you haven't either... By the way again-am I the only one who is creeped out by the card of Curt Schilling's bloody sock???
My double shift ends at 7 AM Eastern, I will have my first post on 2010 Upper Deck up by then... Thanks for looking! Go Rays! Troll out.


  1. There is a bloody Schilling sock in 2010 Topps?

    I just started liking 2010 Topps a little more.

  2. I need base #208 and the IRod CYMTO original back. I'm checking your list against my dupes.

  3. I just posted my Cardinals-centric 2010 Topps want list and I know I do also need the Pujols base card. There might be more, but I haven't checked all the numbers.

  4. I have no 2010 Topps. However, my debt to you should be erased within a few days, as it got the postage stamp and sticker yesterday. Enjoy.

  5. I would be interested in both Mantles. I may owe you a package yet,I need to check my mailings tonight when I get home.I'll email you tonight ! Thanks

  6. Baseball Dad, you don't owe me anything, nor does Roy. thanks though...
    The Mantles are yours, send me an email...
