The best "Junk" wanted
 - I've recently been making cardart as a side-hustle. Basically I take cool but cheap cards and attempt to "remix" them with a fresh new look. And so I may be interested in trading for overproduction-era star cards you're looking to unload (in bulk or otherwise). I'm mainly looking for cheap cards of any big names that people supercollect. Especially wanting 1993 Topps Black Gold inserts. I don't really want to trade just for junk in most cases, but stuff like that makes good throw-in trade fodder for me. However, below are some specific cards that would no doubt be more than just throw-ins...
- Iconic cards that I'm always looking to trade for; happy to get multiples; any disclosed condition:
1990 Score #697 Bo Jackson FB/BB
1986 any Bo Jackson XRC
1987 any Bo Jackson RC
1989 any Ken Griffey Jr RC
1986 Donruss Jose Canseco RR
1990 Leaf Frank Thomas
1980 Topps Rickey Henderson
1984 any Don Mattingly RC
- Looking to trade for complete sets - Do you have any sets you're looking to clear out? I might be interested in trading for any complete set (or at least disclosed near-complete), even junk wax era stuff.

Other general stuff that could make solid trade fodder for me:
- Hot prospects. Recent "1st Bowman" refractors/parallels, whatever.
- I like any refractors using old Topps/Bowman designs featuring retired players/photos that fit the era, such as Nolan Ryan in a mid 80s design featuring him on the Astros since that would make sense. Topps does a lot of modern inserts like this with refractors on "35th Anniversary" tributes and whatnot, but again I'm mainly interested in such refractors when the photo is from the same era as the original design.
- Vintage (older the better, any sport/subject).. especially cards that could fit into my Vintage Frankenset project or Topps Flagship Binder (one page per set, 1951-1980).
- I also collect cards of pretty girls. I know that's subjective, but yeah, feel free to spice up a mailing to me with any lovely ladies pictured on cardboard. Such as WWE, womens sports, Benchwarmer, celebrity cards, olympic cards, etc etc etc.

I mainly collect baseball, but some other sports too:

FOOTBALL: Patrick Mahomes II, Tommy Vardell, LaDainian Tomlinson (PC), Ricky Williams, Reggie Bush, William "Refrigerator" Perry, Walter Payton, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Larry Csonka, Robert Smith, Brian Sipe, Joe Cardona, Jason Hanson, Karl Swanke
(Note that I used to be a San Diego Chargers fan, but they are dead to me since moving to LA. Please don't send me any Chargers cards besides maybe hits of their all-time greats.)

BASKETBALL: Tim Duncan, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Julius Erving, Dikembe Mutombo, Manute Bol, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Walton, T.J. Leaf, Damian Lillard, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo

HOCKEY: Mark Messier, Manon Rheaume, Jaromír Jágr

WRESTLING: AJ Lee (PC), Sgt. Slaughter, Andre The Giant, Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan, John Cena, Toni Storm

SOCCER: Alex Morgan, Freddy Adu

RACING: Jimmie Johnson

NON-SPORT: Anything glow-in-the-dark (cards, toys, stickers, etc). Also '80s toys such as Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Ghostbusters, He-Man, M.A.S.K., Sectaurs, Army Ants, Rock Lords, Visionaries, Go-Bots, Bionic Six.. if you have any toys from these product lines available, I'd likely be down to swap you some cards in trade. I also love The Simpsons, MST3K, Pee-Wee Herman (PC), The Goonies (PC), The Sandlot (PC), South Park, Steven Universe (PC), Rick & Morty, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Game of Thrones.. cards/collectibles from any of those would be sweet. Any Howard Hughes stuff (PC). I might be interested in old comic books (older the better, any condition). I might be interested in old Nintendo Wii or Switch video games if you got any sitting around you'd like to swap for some cards. If you're an artist, you could maybe even make a sketchcard for me.

If you've come to the bottom of my wantlist and think to yourself, "Welp, I guess I don't have anything this guy wants", you might want to take another look at my list of PC guys, as there's everyone from all-time greats to nobodies. Still lots of common "junk" cards that I need of many of those guys. And I don't buy much new product these days (I half-jokingly refer to myself as a "pre-covid collector" [as in I focus on cards released before 2020]), so chances are I need recent cards of dudes I collect, too. 

(Please note this wantlist is for trading purposes. I'm not wanting sellers to email me trying to sell.)

Please note that due to ever-rising expense and hassle of USPS international shipping, I pretty much only trade/send within the US now. Sorry, Canadians and Europeans; nothing personal! I can make an exception for a dynamite PWE trade or something I can't refuse.. though I'll generally shy away. Sorry again.

As for my tradelist...
Feel free to let me know of any sets/teams/players you're looking for and I'll see if I can scrounge up anything for you.

(I had a "trade bait" section linked here for a year or so that helped facilitate 2 or 3 trades, but I'm putting it in mothballs for the time being and will likely eBay off my available high-dollar cards rather than keep trying to trade them.)

I've also been trying to get more active at the Trading Card Database and have some "For Trade" stuff listed there (while building up a big wantlist, too, though not most of my set needs [spreadsheets linked above], just FYI), with hopefully more to be added soon. Check me out at user defgav and hit me up with an offer if our "trade matching" looks good.

And I love trading my cardart for cards on my wantlist, so if you're into creatively altered cards like that, feel free to inquire. I mainly work with cards of stars from baseball's junk wax era, but yeah, just let me know the top player you collect and I can probably whip up some fun "1/1" specials for you. This link to my eBay store can give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Otherwise, please email me with any trade offers.
