Jim's Wantlists - December 18, 2013
This list is intended
for trading purposes with my favorite group of traders, baseball fans,
and genuinely nice people...OBC. I've had quite a few requests
from great traders outside of OBC, but I have a lot of catching up to
do and limited dupes to offer, so as of this time I am only trading with
OBC'ers. I'm in no hurry to finish... I just enjoy collecting a little
at a time. I do much better with small trades and, with rare exception,
*will not* do large trades. If you would like to trade, drop me a note
at xTrJmx@gmail.com. To display all of my wantlists, click on "Sitemap" on the left panel.
My daughter, Sarah, is
18 21(!!) now and is her third term YEAR in college! While she is not as
active about collecting cards, she still gets excited when I find a nice Shawn Green card for her. Thus, I'm going to go
ahead and post her wantlist, consisting of her Shawn Green Wantlist, her
Blue Jays wantlist, the 1956 Topps Flags of the World set, 1965
Disneyland set, and several newer baseball sets, please click here. She also has a wantlist and much shorter have-list for Japanese-born Major
League Baseball players. Sarah also has her old Pokemon
wantlist, although her big box
of dupes has mainly gone to her little brother.
My boy, Benjamin (Ben's wantlist), is
now 12 about to turn 15 (YIKES!) and is about to finish sixth grade a freshman which I believe is the most torturous years of high school. Over the years, we have started collections of the 1999 Topps inserts for a "master set" from his birth year,
opened Starting Lineup figures that he can play with, and collected cards of major
league catchers (one card per catcher or any of HOF catchers), his
favorite position. He also has some nonsport sets that he really likes,
including YuGiOh, Pokemon, the newer KISS cards, and just about any kind
of action/adventure set available. I'll add them in as I can find time.
Update: JOY!! He actually came home with a big stack of Topps 2010
packs-- looks like he might be moving toward baseball cards at last! Update to Update: He is, indeed, enjoying baseball cards more than non-sport now. His favorites are any of the newer cards that are drawn by artists for sets, rather than photos. Maybe it's time to get out the '51s again. :-) December 18, 2013 Update to the Update to the Update: While none of us have been very active in collecting cards in the past couple of years, Ben's still developed a love of basketball (he *loves* the Bulls and almost all of his wardrobe and shoes are Jordans). He also likes football, but much to my chagrin, he has chosen to cheer for the Packers! BLEAH!!!
Thanks for looking...
