Cash for clunkers! Ok not cash, but how about a trade?

With the government already suspending its popular "Cash for Clunkers" program, wherein people traded in low-MPG cars for higher MPG new cars and received a rebate of up to $4,500, we decided to step in and fill the void with our "Card for Clunkers" offering. In the baseball card world, we all know that one person's clunker is another blogger's treasure. So see if there's anything in this first batch of our clunkers that you want or need and let us know, maybe we can swapclunk.

We also have numerous 1983 Topps cards for trade; we were going to collect the set but just decided to keep certain of the cards. So let us know if you have needs there.



We now have two of those cool Darryl GU cards. It's up for grabs unless Mark M. Stats needs it.

Despite appearances here, the Capps jersey bit does *not* glow in the dark.
Anyway, that's round one.

PS Housekeeping underway: haiku assessment and completion of the "cards you don't need" list now that we've processed your responses to the 1980s Topps results.

James Shields is on my "official" game-used want list but my name was mentioned in relation to a certain Strawberry flavored bit. Either one would be swell. I'm not sure if I have a gamer you would want but I might have a few 72 Topps.

I know you saw my Tribe Auto's post. You put that Adam Miller out just to lure me into your web didn't you !! I'll see what I can find to offer, that you might be interested in.It may be a couple days as we're headed to the Nationals this week-end.Maybe I can find something there.

MM, you mean you don't prefer the Darryl?

BD, Adam's yours, no problem.

I would love that red varitek card. The Geoff Jenkins would also be good for my cousin, who spells his name geoff. either or would be fantastic.

Patsearcher said...

I would like your clunker Geoff Jenkins, unless it is spoken for by jacobmrley.

Matt said...

If the Jenkins is still available, I'd love to try to make you the Wright offer if you know what I mean.

I don't see anything wrong with a little Adam Dunn jersey every now and then. It's not like I'm addicted or anything.

mmosley said...

DC, are you questioning my Mets fandom? That hurts a little.

I'm just being flexible. And maybe a little indecisive. Lucy can be Obi Wan and guide me to the correct choice.

Mets won 5 in a row before last night's game!!!

I'm definitely up for that Berkman GU. Give me an idea on who/what you guys collect, and I'll send either a GU or a stack of cards. If you've got a lot of Astros, we can throw that in as well and increase the trade :)

houstoncollector said...

I can also use card 679 (Mike Scott) from the 1983 topps set, if you have it.

PunkRockPaint said...

What an AWESOME idea for a post! I WILL be stealing it.

I understand that Baseball Dad might want the Adam Miller Signs of the Future card, but I have an offer you CAN NOT refuse!!!

Your Adam Miller - Signs of the Future autographed card

FOR:

MY Adam Miller - Signs of the Future autographed card!!!

It is a lose/lose... Maybe we should both send them to him?

PRP, without you around to illustrate an alternate reality on a regular basis, the world would be a poorer place.

BASEBALL DAD said...

Hey Punk Rock Paint,If you really have one too and want to trade I'm game! I have two sons who collect.

--David said...

I am going to have to make the blog rounds a whhole lot faster if I am to get in on any Tribers... BD has a very, very itchy trigger finger...

DC said...

PRP, I suggest that you send one to BD and I send one to David. Or vice versa versa.

DC said...

PRP, that is, if in fact you have one and if in fact you want to let it go. As noted earlier, I have reality issues.

capewood said...

I'm real interested in the Berkman card and I could take the Strawberry card off you hands as well. Let me make you a proposal in email.
