Trade Me Anything X Has Arrived!

You know the drill.
I buy box.
I rip box.
I keep some.
I trade away rest.

(By the way, this is officially the first thing I've done ten times annually on this blog. It's a proud moment.)

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.

Robin Yount 3000 Hits Club
I love it that I can still get one of his cards in a pack.

Fire inserts. These look really cool, especially, if the team colors include red. It makes it look like an absolute bloodbath.

That being said, the Griffey card is the best looking of the bunch. Something about those Mariners period uniforms just do it for me.

And then there's this Mike Trout "negative" (although it's really just black and white) parallel. It's nice to pull a somewhat-hard-to-get parallel of the best player in the box. This will be going on eBay and should almost pay for the whole box.

Go scrounge and find something to trade me.
