Calling set collectors and basketball fans

Picked up some cards in a Craigslist transaction this week. Not my best score but not bad either. Slightly disappointed that there was not a lot of baseball variety, and a large amount that I had already. Here is what I got, and what is available for trade:
That row of cards along the top is about 95% of the 2002 Topps set. Anyone want a mostly-complete starter set? Or have other needs from it?
In the second row we have:
- Most of the 1998 Leaf set. Needed most of it so that's good.
- A full 1997 Leaf Series I. There were actually two of these, so I have a full Series I (200 cards) to trade and probably 100 more singles to trade.
- All but one of the base cards from 1999 Upper Deck Black Diamond. Missing #76 Ken Griffey - anyone have one to trade?
- A smaller stack of 2000 Upper Deck Ionix. Needed most of those.
- A big stack of 1990 Donruss. Come one, someone must need something from that set, right?
And in the bottom row:
- A full base 2002 Ovation set just missing the Griffeys (57, 95-99). Probably about half of these will be available for trade.
- A few silver parellels from that set
- A very few mixed random cards
- A small stack of 2011 Topps cards - up for trade
- Huge stack of 2002 Fleer Hot Prospects. Many duplicates but somehow still missing several cards.
Not shown:
A complete 1992 Ultra Series I - up for trade
A large variety of basketball cards from the 1990s and 2000s. Would gladly trade these for a smaller number of baseball cards.

Anyone interested in trades just let me know!


  1. If there are any Shawn Green or Matt Mantei cards up for trade I would be interested!

  2. Let's see...

    I'm close on '02 Topps (I'm guessing the Mauer's missing, even though it's worth like a buck now), so I'd be interested in some of those if someone isn't aiming for a huge step forward.

    '97 Leaf, I'd be into, as well.

    Question becomes: what do I have left that you didn't get from me over the summer?

  3. I've got some 2002 Topps needs... 14 41 187 225 257 282 309 322 358 410 444 446 449 490 502 542 543 550 557 571 582 588 636 640 671 672 685 692 717 718 719. (I've already got that high-dollar... or single dollar... Mauer.

  4. I would be interested in any Indians cards in the various stacks as well as any Cavaliers cards in the basketball you mentioned. Looking over your wantlists, I should have some cards to help out. You can reach me at tim(underscore)gretchen(underscore)marriage AT

    Thanks, Tim

  5. Any extra Angels would be welcomed here. I have a return stack already started for you.

  6. I'm interested in the 2002 Ovation. I need #39, and 61-89.
