Official Box Trade Thread!!!!!!

(this thread was approved via lprimus)
(could a mod please put a sticky on this one)

The Rules may sound a little strict, but these rules are set to keep this safe, honest and most of all FUN

Rules:

1.) Box will start from Illinois and head off in order of entry into the box trade. i will probably go with about 15-20 members for this.

2.) Must have HOF status of at least 150 trades (at time of entry). may be subject to slight modification if not enough participants.

3.) 5.0 rating

4.) Priority Box with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance must be and will be used with each shipment!!!! (If you have the box in your possession, you are responsible for DC and Insurance.) WHEN SENDING THIS BOX OUT TO YOUR FELLOW TRADERS, PLEASE INSURE THE BOX FOR $400 WITH DELIVERY CONFIRMATION. THANKS!!!!!!

5.) Limited to 3 trades out of the box per person.
5a.) Please be courteous with your picks and replacements. Remember, there are others waiting on this box also and want a crack at some nice cards too.
5b.) You have 4 days to mail the box once you receive it.

6.) Members must post which cards they took out and which cards they put into the box. As much info on the cards as possible please. If need be, use my example listed below (This will start when I send the box out and start a new official thread)

7.) (Auto for an Auto)(GU for a GU)(Hall of Famer for Hall of Famer)(Vintage for Vintage) -- Please use common sense here, DO NOT take a Star player GU/Auto and replace it with a Scrub player!!!! (Example; Griffey for Pujols, not Griffey for Brian Giles (sorry Brian Giles fans ))
7a.) There will be three major sports included in this box trade. Please trade Baseball for Baseball, Basketball for Basketball and Football for Football.

8.) Equal Value trades (example: $10 card for a $10 card, not 2 $10 cards for a $20 card). Although, you could trade down (i.e. your $12.00 card for a $10.00 card, but again, be smart and courteous.)

9.) Every card will have a Beckett Book Value of at least $10.00

10.) This rule might bug some people, but I don't collect rookies, so please no rookies placed into the box. (unless that rookie is established, i.e Ryan Braun and Evan Longoria.) I don't want to end up with RC Auto's from players that never were or never will be?

11.) Anyone who participates will recieve a small package inside the "box". A little "Thank You" for doing this and being such great friends here on the Bench!!!

35 cards will start the box and 35 cards will return to me at the end. If at any point any trader has a problem with what the previous trader put in the box or feel that something is unfair, please PM me with the issue and we will try to work it out. Remember, this is for fun!!!!

newengland1966 - i'll get you on the list

Cooter2533 - you may be good to get in, this will run at least until Billy's box trade is completed. i may decide to lower the bench point requirement a little, if there aren't enough guys at first.

question you said have to have hof status of 150 trades.

DO you mean you have to be a HOF as in 1000 and 100 trades or you have to be a hof with a 150 trades meaning HOF lus 50 trades?

1.) Box will start from Illinois and circle its way around the U.S. and back.i will probably go with about 20 members for this, give or take.
just want to clearify this a little bit.

i'll send the box from my home here in illinois. depending on who is in the circle, i'll try to route the box in that circle. so even if you signed up first or second, if you are in texas, you most likely will be towards the middle of the pack. i'll start by sending the box westward, then back along the lower states or midwest, however it can be worked out, then to the east coast, then back to illinois.

keep watch on the participants, as i'll list them according to my preferred route.

hope this made sense :)

bdink25 - billy told me his box trade took a little longer than 3 months due to the holidays. so i would assume mine will take right around 3 months, give or take a week. if that's the case, the routing would have the box either on the east coast or just on it's way back to me, in late april early may.

Chavezforprez - got ya in

chieftazmisty - i'll wait for confirmation before i add you to the list :)

thanx,
paul

butch, and everyone else involved, since this is east coast heavy right now, i'll start it out that way first. and it'll just be in order of when you enter. should work out since it will be priority box. i think it's $4.80 for the box, plus insurance and delivery confirmation, i think it will be right around $10 to send the box, and being priority, should take the minimal 2-3 days from anywhere, so i don't think any particular order needs to be set in stone.

thanx,
paul
