Junk v. Junk

I really should rethink the headline here. Now that I'm looking at it again, I'm a little uncomfortable. Oh well, what's done is done.

So, with our house selling in Illinois and a quick exit needed, we're in temporary (4 months perhaps) quarters while we search for a new home. Me, my wife and my sweet little girl are essentially living in what amounts to a dorm. Did I mention my 88-year-old grandfather lives here too? It's actually his house we've invaded!

Before you ask, yes, we're crazy. We're in a small house with an 88-year-old and almost 4-year-old. And, we work from home on phones and computers. Technically, one of us works from home while the other trades off and works from a library, coffee shop and assorted WiFi hot spots.

What's the point of all of this?
This is an example of a card you would NOT get if you participate in the junk v. junk cardapalooza.

I still need room. You see, I still have an addiction to baseball cards. I pick them up fairly often. I even grab those re-packaged typically worthless packs at various outlets - such as Walgreens. Like all of us, I end up filing a good amount of cards in my teams-and/or-years-I-don't-collect boxes.

I'd like to free some room. Oh, who am I kidding. I'm mostly interested in sending away some cards in exchange for others. You know, the entire point of trading.

Bottom line:

If you have random Reds, Tigers, Cubs, White Sox, Steelers, Indy Colts (wait Steelers and Colts? Yep!) then I'd be happy to send along similar randomness from your preferred team(s). I'm somewhat light on a couple of teams, but generally have between 50 to 75 cards to send from any given team. Send me a note (dw.reds@gmail.com) or leave a comment if you have an interest.

Editor's Note: Yankees, Dodgers and Cardinals are now preciously thin due to claims or claims three months ago, so I probably can't help there at this time.


  1. I can probably hit some Reds, Tiger, White Sox, Pirates (and maybe Brewers) randomness if you have any Dodgers. I sent you an email already on the Campy Target card. I've already found some Kimball wants of yours and need to check others.

  2. I sent you an email. I have so many cards I don't need from all of those teams that it will be hard to even choose what to send.
