I have taken a small LOA in card collecting and trading for the past few months as I've been waist deep in trying to organize my hockey collection. I don't collect hockey any more and haven't in 15 years. However, they need to be something other than a huge stack of boxes in the corner gathering dust. Anyway, the process has been a long and arduous task but it is now complete. Complete in that I need your help, yes you.
There are many gaps in the sets I have and I'm recruiting some hockey collectors to help me complete each of these sets. Yes, a lot are early 90's that can be found on every street corner in Canada but that doesn't mean they have to go without their friends that make up the team from 1-396. Yes, these may also be sitting in a corner in your house waiting to be traded away and I'm the one who wants them. And by doing so, I'm giving premium trade value in return.
If you look to the far right tab on my blog, you will see the list of cards needed. Read through it, open up boxes that haven't seen the light of day in years, enjoy hockey cards again while watching the Finals. How better to spend a few hours by picking out a quantity of cards someone actually needs from those sets and getting good trade in return. Let's send each other 800 count boxes filled with hockey lore. The USPS will appreciate the business and each of us will watch from the window waiting for the mail man (or woman) to drive up and drop off a box of hockey goodness.
What do you say? Are you in? Are you up to the challenge? C'mon man, let's do this and make our mailboxes happy to be filled again. Ok, I know. A little over the top. But hey, I really want to hype this. Hello????? McFly?????
So, hit me up if you think you can help. Send me your want lists for anything I have listed. I can only hope somebody has want lists from the late 80's to late 90's. To those of you willing to take this leap, I say........
The puck is in the offensive zone and you have the power play. Are you gonna shoot?
