About to dive in to a sea of baseball

Hi all. I've been making some football trades for the past couple weeks and I'm about to have some baseball for you. Before I go on, here's what's happening- a woman here in my town has a MASSIVE sports card collection that her husband spent about 40 years and a hell of a lot of money amassing. She has given me (and only me) access to come over and look through it with her and buy from her at good prices. I only collect football and am nearing the end of what I wish to own/ take for trade and sale bait in the football stuff. I'e spent countless hours and trips on just the football and just saw the baseball room for the first time. I am overwhelmed. It is shelves built in to three seperste walls to house sets in binders and long boxes. Most is nicely organized with the ocassional box of odds and ends (usually lots of treasure in those football boxes). I would love to round up loads of stuff to do aome trading here (baseball for football only) but I need to know if there are people interested in trading that way and need to know what you woukd be after. She said the bb spans the same timeframe as fb with their being about 2 times the quantity. So that would be 1974 to roughly 2013. The football stuff has been setiously all brands and mostly complete sets with loads of inserts. Example: 2005 had every Topps/ Bowman set complete within a few rookies and half full to completely finished insert sets with the Chrome sets having about 40 refractors each. Same with Fleer sets, and apparently he got bored and even did complete Score sets during those awful Score years. I'm intimidated bybtaking on the baseball room but can't pass it up. Just need to know what I'm after when I get in there and start looking at everything. Comment here or pm me if you'd like to give input, make deals, etc. Thanks a lot. ...oh and I am of course open to selling stuff as well, but I do enjoy trading more. My collecting interests are Broncos (we can get into details later), football hall of famers (as well as those not yet inducted, again, details later), special teams players and just anything I find interesting.

Retro-style minis like 2002 Topps 206, 2003 Topps 205, and 2004/05 Cracker Jacks hold interest for me if he had any of those, as well as all Topps/Bowman Heritage weird inserts and parallels.

Current years 2020 or 2021. Happy Holidays, David
I wish I knew you well so I could give you crap about the fact that I said in my post that the collection ends in roughly 2013, and then make a remark about not being surprised that a dirty Chiefs fan would be lacking in reading comprehension skills. :p

But, since I don;t know you, and therefore haven't earned the right to talk down to you for being a KC fan, I shall politely just say, sorry but the collection isn't that recent. Happy Holidays back to you, Jason

I would be interested in HOF RC and 1990's Griffey inserts. Thanks.
Ok, I can maybe name 5 or 10 players that were rookies in the 80s and 90s that are probably in the HoF. Aside from those thst ai might be right about, I'm clueless haha. Pm me a list please. Ot'll probably be after christmas before i see her again, but I will share my findings

I have so many 2001-2003 needs, that I would love to know what kind of stuff is in there from that generation... Maybe he might have the elusive Pedro Martinez golden goose I've been looking for...

Id love to trade for a 2011 update Trout rc if theres one there. Aside from that star cards from 74 to 80 would be of interest.

I'm assuming you already have lots of his stuff. You want dupes?
mostly looking for stuff I don't have. Odd ball/or box sets from the 80's and inserts from the 90's and after are a majority of what I need.

Here is my wantlist, up threw 2006 or so, i think. Anything after just let me know and I will see if I need them. Thanks.
