Website update

 I've tinkered a little bit with my blog layout, partially to reflect some of my new collecting areas. 

On the top right, under my baseball wantlists and tradelists, I've added the matchbook/matchcover themes I collect. Mostly vintage logos, vintage photography, local (Long Island/NYC businesses), and most relevant for this community, anything sports related. Maybe someone's got a matchbook like this one to trade?

I've also figured out what I want to do with vintage football. I'm not interested in completing sets but I went through the TCDB galleries for 1971-1979 Topps and picked out about 100 with cool photos that I'd like to add to my collection. I have a couple thousand football cards to trade, mostly late 70s-early 80s, which I haven't added to my tradelist. Maybe someone's got a card like this to trade? 

Finally, I did what I should have done a long time ago and added a "most wanted" section. I've pulled off lots of trades from other people's "Nebulous 9", "Dime Box Dozen" etc. I don't know why it took me so long to do the same. Right now I'm highlighting the two vintage sets I've been stuck on "almost completing" for a while now.

1974 Topps - down to just seven cards. Second-year Mike Schmidt and late-career Brooks Robinson are the only ones left who aren't basically commons.

1976 Topps - thirteen left here. A few big names - Ron Guidry Rookie, Hank Aaron record breaker, Brett and Schmidt second-year cards - but nothing too unattainable. 

Whose got cards from these sets to trade?


  1. I dont have anything you need but it's great to see you post a 'most wanted' wantlist on the side of your blog.

    Can't wait to see you finish that '74 set!

  2. Given how many bloggers have finished the '74 set, I'm kind of surprised no one has these last couple for you just laying around.
