2013 Topps Trade Bait/Wants

One of the things I received for Christmas was one of those Visa Gift Cards. It had $100 on it and I’ve been saving it for the release of 2013 Topps. Yesterday I stopped by the” Store with the Blue Parallels” and picked up 4 blasters. I didn’t get a chance to scan anything yet, but I wanted to post a Trade/Want list as early as I could.


The only parallels I’ll be collecting are Rangers and the ’72 minis. I’m a sucker for minis.

  1. I'd be interested in any Cardinals cards you pulled and the cut to the chase and chasing the dream insert cards. Let me look around and I'll get back to you if I have any cards you need.

  2. Hey, if these are still available, I'd love to get them from you in a possible trade. I can understand if you'd want to hold the Dodgers for other bloggers, though.

    If you'd like, shoot me an email about a possible trade. I still have that Colby Lewis Emerald foil and probably a few other 2013 Topps Rangers inserts/base cards. I have a few other misc. Rangers cards set aside as well to send your way.

    Thanks!

    1. Nick,
      I set aside the Sale, Masterson, Rizzo, Middlebrooks and Jones as well as the Youklis Calling Card and Clemente Chasing History for you.

  3. just curious - why buy 4 blasters instead of a hobby box (or 2) or a jumbo hobby box?

    (i'm always interested in why people select certain purchasing options, as i've recently tried to resist retail offerings... and i guess i'm questioning my judgment!)

    1. First, I'm impatient.
      Second, I don't have a hobby shop close to me that isn't owned by a reasonable person. IE, his box prices will be at least $40 higher than anywhere else.
      Third, I never, well, almost never, order cards online.
      Fourth, I don't care about the "hits" as much as I just want to rip some packs. See number 1.

  4. i'm interested in the dodger blue parallels, especially the dee gordon. you could add it/them to my package? by the way, i did find that bowman swift card a few days ago, as well as a few other things to send your way.

  8. Mr Minor in blue could be held for me. And that Chipper somethingorother...
    I'll open my 2013 in a few hours and let you know what Angels... I mean Rangers, I pulled. ;)

    1. I set those two and one new one aside for you.

  9. I'm sending you a Darvish mini and 2 Rangers base cards (along w/ some random Rangers). Can I claim the NL RBI Leaders? Been awhile since a Padre was on one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Any Marlins? I'll take them off your hands...

    1. I already had the Marlins involved in another trade. If I pull anything else I'll let you know Godfather!

  11. I would take the Blue Red Sox, but I have no 2013 to send you. Actually I think I have no Rangers to send that I haven't already.

    ReplyDelete

  12. I won't be buying any 2013 Topps for a while (definitely no Series 1), but if no one claims the Scahill I'd love to pick it up.

    I love the design, but I hate that there are only 6 Rockies in the whole 330 card series. But at least there are 18 Giants and 18 Yankees. I'm going 1990s this year.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't know if anyone has claimed them yet, but any blue parallels for the Mets, Nats or Royals I'd be interested in. Also, the Niese gold parallel. I don't have any of your 2013 needs, but I will go through your other Rangers wantlists this weekend and see what I can dredge up...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd be interested in any Angels leftovers.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Any of the Yanks or Braves that haven't been claimed already, my friend. Especially the David Robertson foil! Woo-hoo!

    I have 1 blaster in the books - I'll sort out the Rangers for you and let you knwo what I have.

    Thanks!
