UPDATE: I have offers in hand for the five I need. Still looking for the Spahn and Chipper though. Thanks for the offers!
Dan : Jay Bruce
Scott : Michael Young
Jim : Jake Peavy
Max : Alex Rodriguez and Gary Sheffield
After three blasters, a handful of packs and a trade of 2008 Masterpieces I'm missing 5 stinking cards:
34 Gary Sheffield
59 Jay Bruce
62 Alex Rodriguez
77 Jake Peavy
87 Michael Young
Reader Chris of Project '62 knocked out about dozen I needed in exchange for 5 for his set, a couple of vintage cards and a whole mess 'o 1987 Topps. So now all I need is five stupid cards. So I did what any rational collector would do:
I bought a double blaster from K-Mart since they were on sale. Problem was I got through half the packs, didn't get a single card I needed and got cold feet. Now I have a pile of doubles and 8 unopened packs. These are the cards I have to trade right here:
SO HERE'S WHAT I'M A GONNA DO:
I want to knock this stuff out and move onto something else. I have a pile of doubles and a pile of packs. Here's my offer: Make me a trade that gets me closer to this set and I'll send you three cards for one and an unopened pack. I might even send you some more junk, who knows.
In addition to the set, I'd like to find the Warren Spahn short print #95. Base or parallel, I don't care. If someone out there has that card and is willing to send it to me, I will send you:
Five cards off that doubles list up there
One unopened pack
And your choice of any of the short prints I already have:
91 Eddie Murray
98 Johnny Bench
101 Cal Ripken Jr.
102 Nolan Ryan
105 Tom Seaver
That's 10 cards for one folks, so go find that Spahnnie.
Also - I desperately want a Chipper Jones framed parallel. Any and all Chipper Jones framed parallels*. Same deal as before: five doubles, a pack and any one of the framed cards I have already:
78 Barry Zito Black frame
50 Joe Mauer Blue frame #060/125
58 Ian Kennedy RC Brown frame #030/100
71 Ryan Howard Green frame #35/75
So if you have any of this stuff let me know and I'll get you some packs and cards. If you don't have anything I need but you need cards for your set that's cool too, shoot me an e-mail (in profile) and I'll help get your set finished.
* NO TEX. Framed Spahn cards would be cool too, but absolutely no Mark Teixeira.
