Let's trade some Topps Million Card Giveaways

So here's what's up:  I've got 15 cards just sitting there on Topps' Million Card Giveaway (the baseball one, not the football one).  I'm not really dying to keep any of them, so I want to see what other people are willing to offer me for them.  Since I read the blogs of just about everyone that visits this one, I know those people to be on average fairly intelligent, at least enough to meet my one requirement in this case:  if you're trying to get one of my 1950s or 60s cards, please don't offer me your worst junk wax card for it.  I'm not going to try to get your 1968 Topps Rookie Stars card for that lame Ron Guidry below, so don't waste my time.

But seriously, I've made one trade through Topps' site (I ended up with the 69 Topps Rookie Stars below--I traded some crap for it I can't even remember) after accepting someone's offer, but I've been underwhelmed with the offers I've received otherwise (see:  rant above).  Since I'm betting a bunch of you ended up with a lot of these cards too, I want to see if we can get some reasonable trades going here.  We'd still have to do the swap on Topps' site, but it would at least be easier to arrange this way, considering how much the Topps Million site sucks.

So tell me what you want and give me an idea of what you've got and maybe we can make some swaps.  I'm not exactly expecting to grab some 1960s Al Kaline cards, but I'd be interested in some vintage cards of players I've heard of, more of those multi-player Rookie Stars cards, All-Star Rookies, Detroit Tigers, and maybe whatever else you've got, so try me.  Here's a look at everything I have right now:

2006 Topps Ian Kinsler
1987 Topps Ron Guidry
1982 Topps Willie Randolph
2007 Topps Beltran/Reyes
1958 Topps Don Ferrarese
1969 Topps Gutierrez/Robertson
1963 Topps Dom Demeter
1963 Topps Bill Dailey
1976 Topps Dick Lange
1970 Topps John Kennedy
1977 Topps Santo Alcala
1976 Topps Manny Trillo
1972 Topps Jim Roland is having a stroke or something
1974 Topps Jim Crawford
1973 Topps Pat Corrales
Let's make some trades happen!


  1. I'm fresh out - my final trade was like 8 cards of mine for 1 card I wanted so that I wouldn't have any leftover. I think I traded to either Night Owl or Play at the Plate, but that may not be right. Either way, happy trading to you, I hope you find someone!

  2. Did you happen to trade Manny Trillo for a '75 Steve Hargan? Just curious.

  3. I'm a new follower and I would love to get that Pat Corrales. I have about 50 cards in my portfolio. I don't have a lot of big names, but I could probably go a little older than '73 if you're willing.
