|Welcome to my mass trading strategy|
I have too many cards. I've filled up four 3200-count cardboard boxes and have enough overflow to justify filling another one. I was doing well for a while there, but now it's time to buckle down and mail away some cardboard. You want some?
I have divided these thousands of cards up by team. I now have massive stacks of every team in baseball that I am highly motivated to get rid of.
I started with four boxes full of cards and a bunch of overflow:
Last week I spent my evenings watching Netflix and dividing up these cards by team a few thousand at a time:
I then bricked out the team stacks into a size that allows for four bricks to fit in a $6.00 flat rate Priority Mail box. Here's some of what I've done so far:
The next step is to find people who want the cards....
I'm easy and not looking to profit. I want these cards to have good homes, and I'd prefer it to be worthwhile paying to ship them all.
What I need are Griffeys. There are a few other themes I pursue in my collection, but the focus is Ken Griffey, Jr. If you have some and like a certain team, shoot me an e-mail. I'll drop a cardboard bomb on you. Just tell me a team and a number.
Quantity is up to you and what your Griffeys are worth to you. A standard package is 4 bricks of your team. If you plan on sending an obscene number of Griffeys and I can accommodate filling a larger box, we can make that happen. Maybe you only have a couple and feel guilty asking for a whole box? I can send you two in a bubble mailer instead. I don't plan on negotiating - you make the call.
Don't be shy. I plan on sending these out every Saturday until they are gone and only Griffeys remain. If there are other bloggers you know who collect specific teams, send them on over. I will answer everyone, primarily in the evenings.
My e-mail is TJV504 at gmail dot com. Let's get silly.
