Everything I Have to Trade

I see so many people blogging about successful trades on here. I'd like to get in on that, but I don't really know how to list what I have.

There it is! Start digging!

Everything there is in alphabetical order. Do I now list those individually on a new page? Should I list what I have by year to help out set collectors? Then there's the team set collectors, do I organize by teams?

So many choices and lots of typing ahead of me. I'm willing to do it, but I just want them shown off the best presentable way.

Oh yeah, after that's all said and done, then I have to come up with a wantlist. What does a guy 20 years removed from the hobby want? I guess I could ask for those 5 or so singles missing from my 1991 Leaf series 2 set that I uncovered recently. Yes, that will make all of this worthwhile.

It's a cheap way to ask for comments, but please give me suggestions on how I should list these cards.


  1. I took all my trade cards and sorted them by teams. It may make it harder when I find set want lists, but I found most seems to be team collectors.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I've decided I'm going to try and incorporate a little bit of everything. If all goes well, people can search by card number, player, manufacturer, and/or team. It's a lot of work, though. Hopefully, I'll have it complete and posted in a week.

  2. You might want to look into using Zistle. I've only found it recently, but it'd ultimately allow people to search any way the want, be it by set, player or team. In my limited experience, it's proven to be fairly flexible as far as listing 'trade lists' go.

  3. it is easier to just post and list your WANT list, and the blogosphere will chime right in when they have something you need or want and then you can see what they have listed as their want lists on their pages. BTW, welcome
