The post where you give ME something.

Yes. I'm gonna do it. I am going to make every single person that comments on this post give me something. So if you are not is the position to give me something right now, go collect your thoughts, then come back and leave a comment. You know you want to.

That something you're giving to me? Your want lists. See, the 3rd annual 'Tis the Season will start very soon, and if you have been around, I give away stuff. Lots of cards. And this year will be no exception. But before I start the freebies, I like to do some prefreebies. Talk about a tongue twister.

I was born on a pirate ship with...

So what I want from you: if you have a want list to fill from any 2014 product. Mainly Topps flagship, GQ, A&G, Heritage or Golden Age, link it to me in the comments. Or you can find my email address here and there (hint: try the A&G wants page!) and shoot me a file if you have it that way. Heck, if you are a team collector, feel free to send me any holes you have. Except for current year, the cards destined to leave the 2x3 corporate headquarters are sorted by team. I'll dig if needed. I would just like to file want lists before I dump a ton of cards on people. 

Speaking of cards, I really should post something other than a photo of a girl grasping her filiform papillae.

Here I am!

Here's a couple cards I picked up a while back for my White Sox relic collection.

If I recall, these Triple Threads set me back $10 total. The Beckham is another card with their Chicago America Giants throwbacks. I'll take all cards with those swatches. The Paulie is light blue - your eyes are not playing tricks. I first thought it was a bad scan of a gray swatch. Then I wondered when the hell the Sox did a one off of one of my favorite uniforms. After some digging, the blue swatch comes from the Civil Rights game they played against the Reds in 2009.

Ok. Now hit the comments and tell me what you need.


  1. Ok, my want list:

    I wonder if Kate Upton is the most pictured celebrity on various blogs (and I'm guessing not just baseball card blogs)? I'm not complaining...just wondering!

  2. I'll be first, any Ryan Howard's from this year. I've got most of the higher end (cept bowman just haven't chased those) but the base cards I definitely am missing a bunch besides Topps Chrome.

  3. Brett Lawrie (formerly of my Jays) and pretty much all Jays from the last two years

  4. Here is mine:

  5. - dodger inserts and parallels mostly from 2014 products needed. but you already knew that, didn't you.

    2014 GQ - Dealing Aces, Glove Stories
    2014 Heritage - Chrome Base Variations
    2014 A&G - All extra inserts you may have, ex. Natural Wonders, Worlds Capitals but ESPECIALLY Coincidence (and if you have any from 2013, I also am looking for all inserts but am really looking for Curious Cases)
