Very sorry to hear about your seemingly endless run of bad news and challenges. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

Those three row boxes of refractors, could you give me a generalized run down of what they consist of?

I also collect Topps Heritage baseball from all years.

the run of bad luck continued today....

had to run an errand .....got half way to the local dmv when i realized i didnt have my "wallet" with me so i turned around and came back home to retrieve it....that little extra distance meant i wouldn't have enough gas to make it to columbia tonight so now i had to go to wal-mart for gas....just my luck....i'm going down a one-way aisle and just about to pull into a space when a crazy lady in an suv decided to cut through from the other side - not to take a space , but to make a u-turn halfway down the aisle instead of going all he way to the end like she should have...

long story short , i got halfway into the space i was trying for and she simply refused to move....she and her party got out and started for the store so i backed up so i could look for the next space...i saw the vehicle behind me and waited for her to go by - and you guessed it - i failed to see the SECOND vehicle behind her and i backed right into her....as if my situation wasn't already bad enough , now i've busted up the left tail light on the car i was supposed to be selling back to the dealer next week and will be seeing a jump in my insurance rates now too....


soooo.....now at 2 AM i'm off to the market (running 2 hours late already) for a LOOOOONG day....i should be back home around 4 or 5 sunday morning and will reply to the the posts already made tonight as well as any new ones.....

ok , finally made it back home after a painfully long 28-hour day that was much slower than i'd hoped....

i hope to be able spend much of the day cleaning out the car obviously working on cards (with a few quick catnaps mingled in as well)....i've made a list of everything anyone has mentioned here or via pm and will be pulling stuff aside as i go....if i don't get a personal response to you right away , don't fret - i do have your info and will get in touch ASAP....while i do need to generate some sales right away , i think this downsizing project is going to take a while ....


one additional bit of info i need to add ....while i am primarily looking to just SELL right now and im not SEEKING trades , i would be willing to make a few trades with one catch - i'm not looking to trade for items for my own collection right now unless it's an absolutely unbelievable deal or a super rare (ie , print run of 5 or less) gamecock collection need.....i AM willing to trade for a few very specific items requested by my customers at the market here....below is a short list of items i can use right now :

dallas cowboy material (specifically inserts , parallels , relics , autos , sp's , regional/oddball issues , or a nice roger staubach rookie)

walter payton rookie (need two , one in better condition , one with condition not an issue)

terry bradshaw rookie

any 2008 or 2010 mike stanton

notable 2008-2012 topps update rc's and their parallels (including but not limited to trout , kershaw , scherzer , altuve , stanton , arenado , blackmon , dozier , harper , goldschmidt , rizzo , hosmer , etc)

1984 fleer update kirby puckett

1989 fleer billy ripken (with obscenity)

any tom brady or peyton manning rookies

any freddie solomon (especially oddball or regional issues)

rare eric ebron or dre bly items

any a'ja wilson (i know she has an si for kids cards - anything else i'm not aware of yet)

any dawn staley , tiffany mitchell , alaina coates , allisha gray , or kaela davis autographs or relics

just wanted to let everyone know that my absence doesn't mean i've abandoned this thread or forgotten/overlooked anyone....soooo much that i'm having to do right now means is limiting my time with the cards , but i'm slowly sifting through hundreds of boxes and trying to pull items that have been mentioned in posts here or in pm's....i plan to add a list of random items (primarily some of my low-end flea market material) today and friday and then use the weekend to try to work out deals on any lots i've been able to assemble....


also , two more addition to the items requested by my local customers -

alvin kamara and juju smith-schuster autographs

Pete

the refractor boxes are pretty simple....i have approximately 2 jam-packed boxes for baseball and football plus 1 for basketball along with a couple hundred more loose refractors waiting to either be filed away or for storage space to open up....these boxes contain just basic refractor parallels to main sets from 1993 through 2017 , but there are no refractor parallels of insert sets (ie , there are things like bowman's best refractors , finest refractors , or stadium club chrome refractors , but there are no insert refractors like bowman's best preview refractors , bowman's best cuts refractors , finest moments refractors , or stadium club never compromise refractors).... while there are no insert refractors , there are plenty of different colored/numbered refractors....i HOPE i stated that clearly...if you need more details , let me know...

Cubs please, thanks!

current only or all time ? interested in bulk base lots or only specific "better" material ?

pm sent....

i just sent a second reply to your most recent pm...in it , i neglected to mention that while i do know i still have the kluber chrome , i haven't been able to reach the box that houses it...i'll try to cut a path through the jungle here to get to it tonight....also , fwiw - any other recent


Looking for any cubs you may have, old or new


starting work on a batch for you now....as for your trade offer - for now , i'm almost limited to selling , but if i can raise enough to cover the bills for this month , i may be able to work out a trade for it...


would be interested buying in any auto's, relics, serial-numbered or parallels of any Kansas City Royals you have.

will start pulling these tonight too....



as i noted to rooster in my pm to him tonight , the wonderful 4-day "free" weekend i was looking forward to didn't work out....spent most of the past 4 days trying to get/keep my pump thawed out , looking for and cutting up enough firewood to make it through this artic blast (and i can assure you it isn't fun walking around in 14 degree weather at 3 AM with a lousy electric chainsaw in hopes of finding enough dry wood to keep a fire going til daylight) , and then actually having to put out a fire in the house at 5:30 saturday morning....

i do still have one more day off and i need to raise quite a bit quickly enough to get a deposit made by 5 pm monday....as such , een though i am nowhere near finished sorting , organizing , and pulling stuff or putting together lots , i'm going to try to post a few more lists of items here tonight and then send out PARTIAL lists of what i've pulled so far....

usually i would have asking prices posted , but for now i'm a bit behind so if you see anything you can use , please make me an offer (either here or via pm)....

i should have a small multi-sport list posted here within the next hour or two...til then

guys , i apologize for how long this is taking , but i just had too much real-world junk to deal with last week to get much done with the cards , but rest assured i am still slowly sorting through stuff and trying to build lots based on requests already made....

here's a very small progress report for those who have already posted here ...i hope to have more specific items ready some time this week ...


sportsnut -

coming up empty on most all of those rc's so far....maybe a bowman sterling rizzo...have a small box or two of 2015 bowman and topps hiding out somewhere so i may be able to round up a few of those guys when i figure out where those are tucked away...


david k -

no luck on big ticket baseball items yet...will keep looking and let you know if i find anything you may be able to use...


mrknicks -

most of my topps non-base from 2009-2015 are all stored together in a couple boxes that got misplaced and/or mixed up but i should have some 2010 items if i can ever unearth them...i also left a note to you in my football thread regarding the syracuse players..


reickholt -
building a mauer pile for you (slowly but surely) and then i will hit my refractor boxes to see what other twins i can add to flesh out a lot for you....hope to have something ready by this time next week...


metsman1986 -

i know i do have a few of the all-star stitches here somewhere , but all i've found so far have been other SIMILAR manufactured patches from 2009-2016 topps blasters....i'd like to try to work on a few of those sets myself , but if you're interested in those as well let me know and i'll shoot you a list of what i find on those as well as let you know when i finally find the all-star stitches....

update - just saw your link with your list and see that most are from 2000-2008....i was thinking of the more recent ones...i'll go back and check the older ones against your list of needs....do you have lists for the newer ones as well or are you not doing the newer sets too ?


hociman -

not sure if i can round up enough to make it worthwhile for either of us since you only need commons and only from 2000 or newer.....that said , as i continue sorting i may see if i can come up with something you can use ....


schmidtfan -

started working my way through 4 or 5 triple shoes of parallels last week and finally found one filled with topps material....hoping to make my way through that box as well as a mixed parallel box tomorrow and get a list to you....


ryancollector -

i have set aside that immaculate ryan patch /25 for you and pulled a few more low-end (items with BV's in the 4-10 range) from my market inventory and cheap parallel boxes....i'll try to get a list of those to you in the next day or two to see if you need any of them and then get back to digging for more....


pmanningsfan73 -

i should be able to round up at least a small batch of Griffey , Randy Johnson , Chipper Jones , Helton , Biggio , Bagwell , and Jeter , but probably not much left of
Longoria , Tulowitzki , Kemp , Pujols, , Stanton , or Votto....will try my best to get a list to you shortly....


t.rooster -

still looking for a few boxes of that type material ($5+ rc's and prospects) as well as my 2007 draft stash....i know i have a small batch (of guys like sano , arrieta , bumgarner , posey , bryant , bellinger , judge) on my table at the market that are buried in the bottom of back seat right now , but i will be emptying out the car tomorrow and should be able to get at least a small list to you then


cornwellfamily -

should be able to put together almost any sized cubs lot you like , anywhere from 200 cards up to about 1500 with minimal duplication ....whatever size lot you like would include mainly base , but also should feature lots of low-end inserts and parallels as well as a handful of relics and autos....if there are any specific players that are more important feel free to let me know and i'll see what i can do ....


K.C._Royals! -

have a small stack started for you....not a ton of big names so far , but a decent stack of low-end autos and parallels starting to pile up....i will try to send a preliminary list to you within the next day or two and then hope to add enough to them to make a nice deal worthwhile by this time next week....


i think that takes care of everyone who posted here so far.....i promise - even if it doesn't look like it - i haven't forgotten about any of you or this thread - it's just been very hard to work in everything considering what all has been going on here lately and i WILL do my best to get a few deals made this week...


and if anyone else has any specific player or team requests , please feel free to post them here....
