Summer Cleaning 2016

[Updated 9/27/16] Stuff for the grabbing. 

Awhile ago, I discovered this filthy cardboard box that is built for containing microphone(s). What sort of horrors laid within?

AHHH! AHHHHH! Cardboard horrors! So while I clear this thing out, I figured this is a good time to introduce to everyone that I have finally fully (99.9% complete) cataloged my Cardinals collection. Because of this, I can finally make it easy on everyone who wants to find out if I have something or not before they send it. To celebrate, or possibly to just feel the thrill of purging weird old junk, I am offering up the following proposal which has no foreseeable expiration date.


1. Pick something from the list!

The list will be updated throughout the summer. Possibly throughout the year and beyond. I will add more stuff to this list if it proves to be popular enough to warrant that. I have a lot of stuff that I don't need. This is not a 1:1 thing, so you aren't limited to picking one thing, nor are you limited to just one of...

2. Find a card to send me!

3. Tell me what you want and where to send it!

This is the easy part. All I require is a minimum of one card that I need for anything that you claim.
Note: If you're a #Supertrader and you claim something, I already have your address and you don't even need to send anything. If you're just plain super and have traded with me in the past, I'll probably send first because I probably owe you anyway. Otherwise, I just may wait to get my grubby mitts on that Plain White Envelope because I'm eager to mark things off of my nearly endless want list.

4. Rules are made to be broken, and that includes this one!

Really, the idea is just to spark some trades. If you have stuff you think I might like and you also have stuff that you like and I might have, send me an email, drop me a note or tweet me a... thing... and let's get this thing going.

Sorry about the Pro Set.

New stuff added to the top of the list!

  • 1990 Upper Deck Team Logo Stickers set (all the teams)
More to come!


  1. I would be interested in one of each of the Blazers schedules and the Pro Set World League set.

  2. I don't need anything from this list, but the zistle page is bookmarked for when I get a chance to do my own summer cleaning!

  3. I'm interested in one of the Nolan Ryan Upper Deck heroes sets as well as any Indians logo cards from the two years of Upper Deck you mentioned. Do you need my address?

  4. Hmm... I guess I could go for Zobrist SABR variation, the Sosa/Petrick Card-Supial, and keychain bottle opener. I don't drink alcohol, but I do enjoy the occasional old school soda in a glass bottle, and that might make doing so much easier for me.

  5. I would be interested in the two Jerome Bettie rookie cards.
