This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Trade Bait

As mentioned in a previous post, I picked up some trade bait at my LCS.  If this post goes well, maybe I’ll spring one of these posts every so often to get rid of cards I have already.  For the most part, I grabbed oddball stuff that maybe other collector’s wouldn’t have.   So here goes.


1981 Donruss Mike Schmidt and a 1982 Granny Goose Foods Rickey Henderson.


The 1st card says 1996 Upper Deck on it, but I had never seen it before so I grabbed it anyways.  The 2nd Jackie Robinson card says 1994 Upper Deck on the back but it says “Baseball – the American Epic” on the back so I assume this set corresponds with the movie.  And a 1993 Donruss Mike Piazza rookie.  Let’s face it, there’s a crap load of Dodger Bloggers out there, they probably all have it already but it was only $.25.  Speaking of Dodgers.


It’s poorly cut and has a stain on the left, but it’s yours if you want it.  There’s no year on the back due to the poor cut but the last stat year has 1976 so I’m guessing this is a 1977.  I want to say Hostess, but not positive without the info on the back.


1998 Fleer Double Trouble (Hideo Nomo & Mike Piazza) and a 2008 Upper Deck X Xponential Russell Martin. 


1965 Topps Cincinnati Reds rookie stars and a 1974 Topps All-stars with Rod Carew and Joe Morgan.  It’s a little worn around the edges.  I grabbed this Ted Kluszewski because I hadn’t seen these cards either.  It says 2003 Topps Flashbacks.


Manny Ramirez gold 2003 Topps.  1978 Topps Fergie Jenkins and a Ted Williams from 1989.  It has JJ Nissen Super Stars at the top, never seen these either but there it is.


Both George Brett.  1987 M&M’s Star Lineup and a 1991 Post Cereal Collector Series.


And the final 2 are both Cal Ripken Jr.  A 1992 Post Cereal Collector Series and a 1990 Topps Kmart Superstars.

All are for trade, but a couple people have first dibs because I’m already working on trades.  So if Stealing Home of “All Trade Bait” wants any of the Dodgers, let me know.  And if Dennis at “Too Many Grandersons” wants the Ripkens then let me know as well.  Let me know if you see anything you want.  If we make a trade, I’ll try to hit your want lists as well but be forewarned, I don’t have much left in my trade box so you may only get the cards you ask for.  I tell you this because I know a lot of you send extra cards, and that’s great, I try to do so as well.  I just don’t want you to be disappointed if there aren’t any extra goodies.  Hit me up with a comment or email if you want any of these.


  1. OK, let's see here, I'd like the '98 Fleer Double Trouble, the Robinson American Epic, and the Garvey Hostess.

    I've got some Pale Hose for you, I'm sure.

    Let me know!

  2. Please set aside the '65 Reds rookies, the Ted Klu and the Morgan/Carew card - as well as the George Brett M&M.

    I'll gather up some things for you soon.


  3. I'd like the Ted Williams for my sample collection, please ! I'll dig up something as well and get back to you.

  4. I have a bunch of White Sox that I want to give away. I was told you might be interested in them. If so email me your address at padrographs at live dot com

  5. Sorry, Nachos. I'm typically a trailer around here.

  6. I know this is an OOOOLLLD post, but do you still have that Granny Goose Henderson?
