Hi all. I love trading cards. I've been doing it since I was a kid. Somewhere around college cards took a back seat to :cool: well college stuff. I've been re-introduced and for the past year or so I've been spending trading selling ripping wax etc like a mad man. I do sell a bunch on EBAY and though it doesn't count here I'm still proud to have 292 stars and 100% feedback.

Anyway, I a Boston fan in all sports but I really collect anything. Some stuff I get to keep and other stuff I get to sell/trade. I do love collecting Jon Lester, Clay Bucholtz, Evan Longoria, Dustin Pedroia, and many others. I like refractors/autos/jerseys/patches/rookies and just about open to anything.

If anyone has any advice I'd love to hear it! I don't really know anyone who trades cards except my local dealer. I'm a 37 year old school teacher so not too many of my friends are ripping wax :rolleyes:

Anyway look forward to trading with ALL of you!


I just got on the site a few months ago. I put together a list of what i had to trade and have periodically updated it. haven't updated or traded as much lately but already have a bunch of trades. You can make a thread like the one you just started and list what you have. Then click on "User CP" and click on "Edit Signature". You can copy and past the thread with your list on there and refer people to it.
I'm a 37 yr old card geek too....
Welcome to The Bench:) I second that advice on a trade page or list. Very helpful for other traders and allows more deals to get done for sure.

If you have any of the wants listed in my sig let me know and we can talk turkey:D
