Trade Me Anything IX Has Arrived!


One of my favorite times of the year is here. It's time to hit your junk drawers, your doubles boxes, your hollowed-out Bibles where you hide your weed, and find something, anything, to send me in exchange for a card or several cards of your choice from my 2015 box of Topps Update Series. This year I opted for a jumbo box. It's disheartening to look at my want lists and keep seeing those unfinished 2013 and 2014 sets. It was a little more expensive, yes, but I wanted the sure thing this year. Plus, lots more inserts and assorted fluff! Keep reading if you want to play a part in this year's orgy of cardboard delight.

The usual spiel...

1. Check out the list of available cards below. Select one (or a couple) you want. Just remember, the more you claim, the better your trade material should be.
2. Send me an email with your choice of card(s) at bill13boehm@yahoo.com
Please don't leave a request comment on the blog. This just confuses people, so don't do it, it will just be deleted and will not count.
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.) I've got a want list you could check out, too!
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 are the cards you may choose from. Cards that have officially been claimed are in BOLD.
