    Player/Team Hoarders Helping other Hoarders

    I had this idea earlier that I ran by [MENTION=10405]Hawk8[/MENTION] that maybe some of us that are player collectors that like accumulating multiple copies of our guys we PC could help each other. I have been putting aside my Andre Dawson doubles for a while now for him since I know he likes collecting doubles. In turn he has been putting aside Fred McGriff and Orel Hershiser doubles for me.

    This got me to thinking maybe we could do this on a bigger scale. If other people like to hoard/collect another player I would be glad to go through my stuff and pull that persons cards and send them too them especially if they could do the same for me and/or others on the forum. We could consider this to an extent for people wanting cards for a team as well. I kind of see this as a pay it forward type thing or similar to the freebie thread.

    I think if shipping costs are of concern this could be worked out between the people trading. Maybe some people wouldn't mind digging through some boxes to help other collectors out even if they do not care to hoard a player or a team. This could be a good way to clean out some boxes and help other collectors at the same time.

    I would imagine some more sought after players probably would not be included in this thread. I also imagine most of the cards sent out would be more common stuff or inserts.

    Anyone want to participate? Any concerns or ideas that could make this better? Should we include all sports under one thread since not much activity happens in some of the other sections of the forum?

    If some people want to participate please let me know and I can make a list of who may want certain players.

    What a fun idea!

    I am almost finished working through my massive inventory backlog. Down to just 400 or so singles to prep for listings before I am ready to tackle a 20,000+ card pile that is my unsorted minor/semi/star bulk inventory. Was planning to go ahead and pull all the McGriff's for you. Should be around a couple hundred, although don't count on me any time soon. Guessing this project is still at least 2-3 months away. Dreading how time consuming it will be. I plan to dominate the dining room table for at least a week or two. Pretty sure Orel won't be in there though.

    I would happily take any extra Chippers you have, and of course will go in your favor since the Crime Dog does not sell for quite as much. Although for what it's worth, this McGriff stack will be loaded when I do get to it - lots of parallels & inserts in the mix.

    Happy to take requests from others. I usually only get around to pulling stars for group lots, but if I have requests for other players coming in I will pull them too.

    I like the idea. I have done that in the past and it has worked pretty well. My problem over there years was the people I had a good thing going with got out of the hobby. I would love to do this in order to receive Yankees as a team or on a lower player level Paul O'Neill cards. I'm looking forward to checking back to see if we get something moving on this.

    Cool I will make a list above in the original post and put you down for Chipper Jones. I just bought a collection that I need to go through myself plus I will set aside what I already have for you. Thanks

    I'd be down for Darryl Kile, but I worry that I won't find much to send out.

    I can add you to the list. I'd imagine some guys wouldn't mind sending some your way since you seem to be a long time forum member. Even if you can send a few cards someone's way it can help out. Plus everyone likes getting mail.

    Glad you like it. We have a couple people on board so far. I wish we could get a few more. If you guys can think of anyone else that may want to participate please PM them or tag them so they can find this thread.

    Also I bought a car load of cards last week and I am starting to go through them. Already pulled some cards for the guys on-board tonight.

    I need team cards and stickers but no checklist . No cards out of uniform- traded to etc. At this time i'm mainly working on basketball to team boxes = 20,000 plus picked up , football is mostly done and baseball goes on forever .
    Very few inserts except low end in all sports - some GU / Autos but cheap older players . Off center , out of focus and gum stained gone unless pre 1986 .
    i need to trade bulk Mariners , Padres , Phils , Marlins , Indians , Brewers and Tigers . i can do boxes of different cards 100 / 2000 most teams
    I collect Matt Capps autos and newer Rangers - i have a list will try to do later

    This is an excellent idea! I have quite a few boxes of players like those listed above that I've been wanting to find a good home for. Count me in.

    I don't want to overdo my list, but here are the main guys I collect who'd be reasonable player candidates for something like this: Lou Whitaker, U L Washington, and Mo Vaughn. If that should be whittled down to one, Whitaker is the guy. Or if someone else interested collects any of those guys, I'd say send the cards to them.
