Trading to complete late 70's sets BB/BK/FB

RoughRider

Bench Warmer
Hi all! New member here trying to finish off some late 70's sets I've been working on for a while. Would be glad to search wantlists, but would also trade lots of minor-to-mid-level stars at a premium over Beckett in return for what I need. Most of my highest-grade trading stock is from 1978-1985 baseball (all brands, but kinda light on 1985 and 1986 Donruss/Fleer) and football, but there's a decent amount of EX+ going back to around 1972.

1975 Topps Baseball (NrMt, very slight corner and edge wear OK, at least 70/30 centering): 93 122 190 196 201 203 204 (FRobinson/Clemente MVP) 238 268 290 309 382 386 460 465
1976 Topps Baseball (NrMt/Mt): 17 23 38 64 119 130 158 161 169 185 308 340 (Rice) 344 (Wagner ATG) 385 392 535 541 610 643 657
1977 Topps Baseball (NrMt/Mt): 4 78 131 170 (Munson) 228 287 294 323 344 354 370 387 (Yankees TC) 400 (Garvey) 402 429 433 472 496 519 546 582 606 609 623 651

All the following in NrMt/Mt grade:
1976 Topps Football: 128 (Fouts) 130 172 190 201 211 260 266 273 285 313 (Pearson) 335 420 457 500 (Tarkenton) 522 (Bleier) 525
1977 Topps Football: 6 27 36 46 47 75 84 95 114 127 132 134 172 181 182 183 203 207 212 217 244 247 272 315 352 360 (Payton) 378 379 406 413 435 442 488 490 503 518 522
1978 Fleer Team Action Football: 3 63
1978 Topps Football: 73 121 129 136 145 174 181 200 (Payton) 207 214 235 295 (Greene) 299 369 388 425 444 461
1979 Topps Football: 19 (Steelers/Dungy) 52 55 100 208 234 280 378 434 441 449 460 469 476 494
And one 1980 wantlist I hope it's OK to slip in here since it's just one card!
1980-81 Topps Basketball: 141 Norm Nixon/242 Elvin Hayes TL/35 M.L. Carr (Beckett #135)

If you have a sharp centered 77 Payton or 77 Munson with no printing defects that you'd part with, I have photos posted in my album of just a small amount of the cards I have available, and I would aggressively trade for these two cards. I'd deal from that box for the 76 Rice and 78 Payton too, but I don't think they have the kind of chronic PD's that the 77 cards have. Thanks for looking!

Hey RR,

Greetings from New Jersey! Just took a look at your full want list and figure to do pretty well with it. I have attached my own want list to this post but because it is a Word.doc it may not open. To that end I would ask you to e-mail me at [email protected] where I can send you the web page link to my want lists for you to check out when your time permits. I would love to work on a good trade or two before the Thanksgiving holiday ends.

Hope to hear from you.

God Bless - Billy

Anyone who has a Beavis avatar is al;right in my book. It is good to see someone else here appreciates high brow humor besides me! This new member should be taken off Bench Warmer status and placed imediately into the Bench Hall of Fame!!

I should do pretty well on your want lists but won't to be able to hit them until this Thanksgiving weekend. I do have the last 1980-81 Topps Basketball card you need which I have set aside for you so you can consider that set done.

I also took a quick look at the 1978 Fleer Football needs and I have about 800 dups of those. Believe it ot not, I had only 2 copies of #63 but they were way off center horizontally about 85/15 and did not think you'd want those.. Incredibly, I did not have a #3 in this large lot of dups.

I can help you on both sports but will probably do better on the football. I'll see what you still neecd this upcoming weekend and go from there.

@bhk5150 Thank you for the email! I'll check your lists out this evening.

@SymphonicMetal I appreciate your confidence and look forward to thanking Mike Judge, Butthead, Lolita, Tanqueray, and Todd (because he's so cool) in my acceptance speech. But not Stewart. He's a dork.

Hey Dillhole, I won't be able to hit your want lists for a few days but I know off the top of my head a few want lists for some late 70s sets if you may have any of these.

1979 Topps Football (low grade set) 429 Danny White and 469 Cowboys Team Ldrs.

1977 Topps Baseball (NM set): I need about half the team cards with the checklists on the backs unmarked. I picked up a NM 1977 set recently outside of 10-15 marked team checklists.. I'd have to get the card numbers on those for you since I lost my original upgrade list. If you have any of those that fit my condition requireents, I'll be glad to make a new want lists since I need to do that anyway.

I saw a post of yours that said you have 200 Tony Gywnn RCs. Is that true or close to true?

If we make a trade, we can meet at either the Maxi-Mart or Burger World. I'll be able to ID you since you'll be wearing your ubiquitous Winger tee shirt.

I clear the bar, but not by much. 3 in my PC 1983 sets (Donruss/Topps/Fleer), 14 in additional hand sets, 73 more Topps singles, 67 of Fleer, 46 Donruss, 1 O-***-Chee, plus another 0-4 TBD that may or may not be in boxes that are just too hard to get into right now puts the expected total somewhere between 204 and 208. (EDIT: Apparently, the net nanny doesn't like the full name of the OPC brand! LOL!)

Are you threatening me?

Apparently the website is threatening you!! I recently jokingly posted that YouTube was my favorite website with the exception of certain "corn" sites.......... except my term began with a "P". And like you, I got the 4 asterisk treatment. Who knew this site did not like the letter P? Whoever created that censorship program for this site was a real butt munch.

Well with that many Gywnn RCs you'll never run out of tradebait for me.. I'm always interested in prominent RCs from that 1982-1985 era if you don't have any of my specific needs. I'll have some info on what I have for you in the next few days.

After i finish my crappacino, i'll look through my 91 UD football for you. I'm building it too and can probably hit most of it. The one card i saw in particular that i need for my 78T baseball is that Reggie Jackson #200. I'm down to 55 cards left and, as a yankees fan, am surprised i didn't already have it.

Also, am i to understand that you have 45 donruss Don Mattingly rookies?😮

Great! I've probably got the rest of the cards you need too. What grade are you looking for?

Yes, plus the one in my personal set. 😃

I am in the process of following the trail of Mr. Riders post trail to see exactly where I am after six days of being unable to respond as quickly as I like, and came across your post. You Sir, are most correct. Anyone who can not only praise the and genuflect the knowledge and wisdom of the almighty B &B duo most certainly should be sitting upon the highest throne. And you yourself Sir should be complimented for your part in enlightening a new generation to their gifts to humanity. Thank you Sir......THANK YOU!!!

Mr. Van Driessen, I have all butt 19, 100 and 469 for your 1979 Topps FB set. I have 2 nice copies of #100 (Chuck Foreman) but they are 90/10 L to R and did not think you'd want those. Correct me if I am wrong on that. I have all of your 1978 Topps Football needs. Mmm Kay?

I said butt. huh huh huh You had better not rat me out for saying that or I'll wound your inner child.

Hey there. I'm a new member as well.. Just joined! Got real excited when I saw that I have most of what is needed here. Then got kinda bummed when I clicked your updated wants and just wanted to confirm... you have already gotten most of this covered it looks like?

Welcome, shig! On my to-do list tonight is to go through this thread and my PM box and list out all the pending trades I've got in the works and who wants what. I've gone from having a nicely neatly stored collection to having monster boxes and little stacks of cards everywhere as I'm setting stuff aside for various trades. Also I don't think I have anyone pulling 77T Football for me, so if you've got any high-grade cards there -- especially a Payton -- we can deal! Same if you have enough to put together starter sets or near sets in high grades for 1968-75 football. I can deal for some of that too.
