Trade Pile 001: Attempt at a New Feature

Trade Pile 001
26 Jun 2022

 So here is a feature that I have been thinking of doing for a bit, but haven't committed to since it requires somewhat frequent updating. It is a way to lighten the load of my card hoard. It is based on a concept that Chris at Nachos Grande Blog calls his "Trade Stack". He has been doing it for years (sent out 105 stacks) and a few other bloggers have similar deals.

The concept is simple I will post a card or cards I have up for trade and the first person to claim the "pile" in this post's comments will receive them all. The golden rule with this is that you must offer at least one card off of my wantlists. See My Master Want List on this blog or My Wantlist at TCDB*. If you don't have a card off of my lists I will also accept Pre 1986 Vintage Baseball or Football and Non-Sport from 1960s to 1970s. Please let me know what you intend to send.

After awhile I will add another card or two to the "Pile" (or "Stack") of unclaimed cards until the pile gets claimed. 

To test the waters here is the first card for the Pile:

2016 Bowman Draft - Chrome Baseball:
BDC-29 Justin Dunn Mets

*TCDB link goes to my TCDB profile, to see the wantlist go to Collection, then Wantlist.

This is slightly different than my regular CK42 Trade Post posts. some of those cards are still available and have been sitting for sometime.


  1. I'm sure you'll have some success with this, but you'll probably have to wait until the pile builds some before it gets claimed. After all, it's only natural for people to want to get a lot for as little as possible.

    1. Jon,
      You are absolutely correct. I didn't start this thinking I could do a one and done post. The next card should get some interest considering the player. It is a fun card it just doesn't fit my preferences for my collection. I think half the fun for me is/will be trying to choose which card(s) to add to each stack/pile.
