50/50 Trading Post

I have surplus duplicates of several different sets, which I had hoped to offload in trades.. but it's a longshot that anyone would need these cards as set fillers.

Then I had a thought... everyone enjoys a good blind trade, right? Well, what if I offered 50 card lots for you guys to claim - most of them divided by team, with a few set/random lots thrown together for funsies. I'll make sure to pack each lot with star base, and some inserts/parallels/rookie cards - perhaps even a relic if possible.

In return, all I ask is that you send me 50 cards. Of anything. You don't have to tell me what you're sending, and you don't have to hit any of my wantlists (though that would certainly be appreciated!) Just send me anything that doesn't fit your collection, and I'll do my best to send you something that does. 50 for 50. Does that sound like fun to anyone?

If you'd like a lot, leave a comment with the lot of your choice, and then drop me a quick e-mail (sutherlandct @ gmail .com) with your address. Here are the available lots:

  1. I really like this idea and may have to steal it. At this time though, I don't really have anything from your want lists and I don't want to be that guy. Good luck with trades. I hope the blogosphere decimates your 43 lots!

    1. Go ahead, be that guy! You don't have to send anything from my wantlist, any 50 cards will do. Just trying to get a good swap meet going.

  2. Sounds like fun. I'm willing to give it a try. Put me down for the Red Sox. Email on the way.

  3. if you're willing to cross borders, let me know.
    I'd be up for the Braves.

    1. Sure, I can do that (I expected to have at least one shipped to Canada) e-mail me your address. thanks!

  4. I'd love to do this, but I'm out of the country for a while. If you don't mind waiting until the middle of next Monty, I'd claim the Mets lot, but I totally understand if you'd give preference to someone who can send stuff sooner. You've got my email, so let me know if you're open to that. Otherwise I'll wait for next time. Cool idea!

    1. You claimed it first so they're yours. I'm in no hurry, send when you can. I might be able to scround up 50 more Mets if someone else wants one.

  5. I'll take Jays.. lol I've come across a few cards in my travels since that Swihart I sent you that I think you'd like, so..

  6. How can I pass this up? I'll claim the Minnesota Twins. I bet I can round up some fun stuff for you.

  7. I would like to put my name down for the Cleveland Indians please. I am going to send an email here shortly. Thanks alot!

  8. I would like the hockey mystery lot #2 if its still available. I definitely have some stuff I can send your way.

    1. Hi Paul, hockey lot #2 is yours. E-mail coming.

  9. Hmm... Now the question is. Do I try and be greedy and ask for another lot, knowing I now have to get 100 cards for you in return.. lol

    Yes... Could I also put my name down for the 2015 Topps lot?

    1. Sure...I'll ship them to you in a couple weeks. (Int'l shipping charges are a killer.)

  10. Hi - I'd love to take Tigers - and Astros - off your hands, if I can claim two teams. Email forthcoming. :)

  11. The 50/50 trade offer is now closed. If all goes well I might try it again in the future. Thanks everyone!
