Trade Me Anything! III

November. What does that word mean to you? To me, it sometimes means it's time for my students to take the WKCE (Wisconsin Knowledge Concepts Examination), a scary-ass standardized test that makes many children cry the first time they see it, seeing as it's the size of a phone book from a town with a population between 100,000 and 300,000, or your average 1991 issue of Tuff Stuff, whichever is thicker.

To the rest of you, it means it's time to haul out those dusty bins filled with anything and trade it to me. That's right, it's time for Trade Me Anything! Or, more accurately, Trade Me Anything! III.

III. Gosh. This sounds like a franchise. Has this site really been around that long without folding? This promotion needs a subtitle, much like that of a crappy sequel. What should it be?

Trade Me Anything! III: Dream Warriors?
Trade Me Anything! III: Season of the Witch?
Braddock: Trade Me Anything! III?
Trade Me Anything! III: Rise of the Machines?
Trade Me Anything! III: Ultimatum?
Trade Me Anything! III: The Search for Spock?

Man, none of those work. Oooh,I've got it!
Trade Me Anything! III-D

If you were around last year, you know the drill. I busted my box of 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights, and I'm putting up for grabs anything I'm not planning on keeping. All you have to do is find something, anything to trade me for the card you claim. Don't even think about telling me what it is! Here are the directions, copied and pasted for your participatory pleasure.

Here's what you do:
1. Check out the list of available cards below. Select one you want.
2. Send me an email with your choice of card at
3. I will reply to you as to the card's availability. First come, first serve. I will include my mailing address.
4. When I confirm the card of your choice, pick out one or more of your own cards or anything else you want to send me. A few guidelines about what you can't send: Nothing that should really be in the garbage, nothing perishable, and nothing illegal. (Notice I didn't say nothing immoral.)
5. Send me whatever is was you picked out. Don't tell me what it is before you send it, I'd like to have it be a surprise! Include a SASE or you won't be getting your card.
6. When I receive your item, I will take a picture of the trade materials and post the happy couple on my blog, and then I will send you the card.

Here's what's up for grabs:
Topps Town (Blue)
Victor Martinez - Red Sox (x2)
Matt Cain - Giants (x2)
Adrian Gonzalez - Padres
Chris Carpenter - Cardinals
Jacoby Ellsbury - Red Sox (x2)
Jose Reyes - Mets
Vernon Wells - Blue Jays
Felix Hernandez - Mariners (x2)
Dan Uggla - Marlins
Russel Martin - Dodgers
Hunter Pence - Astros
Raul Ibanez - Phillies (x2)
Troy Tulowitzki - Rockies (x2)

Zack Geienke - Royals
Torii Hunter - Angels

Gold Parallels (#/2009)

178 Josh Beckett All-Star - Red Sox
189 Classic Combos (Young, Hamilon, Kinsler) - Rangers
191 Ben Zobrist - Rays
319 Ramon Castro - White Sox

That's it, folks. Lots up for grabs this year, including the gold numbered parallels for the first time. I'm guessing the Propaganda cards will be the first to go. I'm not keeping any of the ones I got, since I don't have it in me to go after the whole set. Go out, raid the coffers, look under the bed, access the secret porno stash hiding spot where you also keep a few other items, and TRADE ME ANYTHING!

By the way, here's my want list for the 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights set. If some of these became part of the anything, I certainly wouldn't mind.
3 5 7 13 17 22 27 31 43 70 71 73 76 112 117 119 121 135 138 151 154 155 158 163 166 168 180 184 185 206 211 221 245 246 247 251 255 257 262 263 270 274 276 286 289 291 299 302 310 313 321 322

I believe I can rustle something up for the Gold Redmond, if it is still available.
