Trade Me Tuesday #1

Welcome to a new feature here at 2x3 Heroes. I am borrowing an idea from the awesome Nacho Grande run by Chris. I hope Chris won't mind me altering slightly his "Trade Me Anything" feature. Mine is not like his, as cool as his TMA is. I hope to do this each Tuesday, but that's not a set in stone idea.

Here's how this works. I will post 6-ish cards each Tuesday. If you would like them, first to claim in the comments takes them. The cost for the cards is 1 (one) card of my want lists. It could be a need from my general wants, my A&G wants or something that I don't have in my bunting, double play, throwback or broken bats binders. You can find the cards currently in those in my Zistle account. Any card not shown is a card I want. Hey - if you would like to send me something for one of my active (or inactive) Projects that I don't have, that would be lovely too. Random White Sox and/or Blackhawks cards, however, are not allowed.

After you claim the stack, email me at 2x3heroesATgmailDOTcom. Let me know your mailing address - the cards will go out the day I get your mailing address (unless I already have it in my database). Here's the main key: DO NOT TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE SENDING! I enjoy a good surprise.

There's the basic ground rules. I'll repeat them each time I post. So let's jump right in.

Here's six 2001 A&Gs I pulled from a dime box that are dupes. Don't need 'em. Who does? I will say this - the top two have slight bends in the lower left corners. Not horrible, but noticeable when in hand. If you look close that the Mary Rose, I think the scan picks it up.

First commenter claims this group. Email me and we'll exchange addresses (if needed).

Quick side note: I was searching for the right theme song for this feature. Sometimes, it's not so bad when you get really off track on YouTube, cuz you can end up with the great Rev. Al Green, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave (my personal favs), Howlin' Wolf, and The Isley Brothers, and more. However, I think I am going to stick with the Godfather of Soul....


  1. Great idea! Any chance a hockey card might pop up here some day for trade?

  2. Give me these too. I'm "a" hook you up! LOL.
