Fall cleaning like the Tigers, or, I've got the piles!

Ok, I gotta start coming up with better headlines.  Anyway, after a very successful season that culminated in the A.L. pennant, the Tigers are doing a bit of housecleaning, cutting bait with dead weight such as automatic outs Ryan Raburn and Gerald Laird, closer-cum-opener Jose Valverde, and slugger-on-the-field/slugger-off-the-field Delmon Young, to name a few.

Accordingly, I'm trying to do a similar bit of cleaning.  I tried this a few weeks ago with individual lots from Cleveland and Tampa Bay, but neither of those received a bite, and that ended up feeling pretty inefficient anyway.  So here's the deal:  I have a bunch of lots sorted by team (baseball, football and basketball), plus a few other odds and ends.  Lots consist mostly of base (but include a reasonable number of stars) along with inserts where possible, and depending on team, I may even be able to sweeten the pot further. (but no promises!)  I'm going to list which teams are available, then you leave a comment saying you want that team (or more than one), and at some point soon I send those cards to you.  Maybe you send me something in return and maybe you don't--that's not really my priority at this point; I just want these GONE, like a ninth-inning pitch by 2012 Jose Valverde with the game on the line.
ALL THE LOTS
I'll try to make it simple for you:  if you like the team(s) and would like the cards, please claim them, and when you receive them you can decide if you want to send me anything at all, Bip the shit out of me, or overnight me a flaming bag of dog poo.  If you do send anything, please feel free to keep packages small since the goal of all of this is for me to cut down on stuff I don't want.  On with the piles (pictures displayed to kind of give you an idea of stack size, but I guess not really):

  12. I would be a fool if I didn't stake my claim at the Mariners. I'm so bummed that I have to work on Saturday but I will be constantly checking my phone for scores and will be setting up the DVR to record the game. GO BLUE!!!

    1. I figured you'd step up and take them eventually. That's probably the smallest baseball pile, so I'll see if I can't scare up a few more useful cards for you.

      Yeah, I don't know what to expect for that game, but my eyes will be glued to the TV the whole time! Good luck keeping an eye on it!

    Any chance you can give that Conrad guy my email. Maybe I can trade doubles with him.

    1. You got it, Fuji! I also have that fat stack of A's reserved for you. If I come up with anything else good I'll throw it in so we can trade, because I have a bit of a list going in terms of stuff I liked from you.
