Cards from Mom; Set Help for You

About a month ago I stopped by my parents and my mom handed me a plastic grocery bag of cards she picked up at a garage sale.
There were thirty-six sandwich bags in all and each one had about twenty-five cards in it.

That's about 900 cards to add to my monster boxes! Woot!
There were cards from three different sets: 1990 Donruss, 1992 Donruss and 1992 Upper Deck. They were fun to flip through and after a little bit of time the cards have been collated into my collection.

Thanks, Mom!

I figured now would be a good time to post a list of sets that I have a decent amount of singles to which might interest some in the blog world. I've completed many of these sets, and if that's the case, then these are the leftovers. In a few cases I have modest number of cards from a set I never pursued completion.

If you have been working on any of these and have a want list then leave a comment. If you'd like a nice starter set and would be interested in ALL of the cards from that set, then that's an option as well!

Honestly, I'm just interested in clearing out some space and would gladly take any Cubs cards. (And yes, I'm just as happy with cards of Miguel Montero as I am of Kris Bryant.) Twenty-five cards for you, one for me? How's that for a deal? If you're look at a large quantity, then we can work something out. I'm pretty easy going with my unwanted cardboard.

Here's the list, with an estimate of the number of cards I have in parentheses. Thanks!

  1. I got your comment about the David Ross in Heritage High Numbers. I will look for that. I would be interested in whether you have any Red Sox cards in the more recent stuff here. I will let you know.

  2. Hi Tom,
    I would be interested in the 2002 Topps Total cards. For some reason, I just really like that set. Email me at ttorcato AT aol Dot com to see if we can set something up!

  3. I can use any Angels 1992-1993 Topps Gold/Gold Winner, and any Frank Tanana cards. I'll see what I can find for you.

    1. Pulling the Gold and Winners from 92/93 will be a pretty quick task. Frank Tanana? Um... I'm going to have to find a player checklist. Any help?

  4. I'd be happy to take any Panini Hometown Heroes off your hands. I have all the Dodgers (I think), but I like it enough to think about building it.

    1. I'll get them out to you later this week! Thanks for the interest!

  5. Hi. I'd be interested in the sports flicks. Can send you some opc and other Cubs stuff. Check me out at

  6. Seeing those sandwich bags brought back memories. When I was a kid, I'd sometimes sort my cards into teams and throw them into sandwich bags. Good times.

  7. I'd be interested in 2013 Topps S1 & S2 & inserts, and maybe some 1993 Flair. I can send you a nice lot of Cubs in return. email me Sutherlandct (at) gmail (dot) com.
