A Call To Baseball Card Collectors Who Read My Blog

So a while back I posted that I was interested in getting myself a baseball set. Then what happened was some people shared some ideas and then I went away thinking about their suggestions. The problem ended up being a little more complicated. As a result of your suggestions I have three sets I am interested in.

Set 1
1989 Upper Deck Baseball

Classic set, one I remember my friends collecting.

Set 2
1984 Donruss Baseball

A classic set with some great rookies and maybe Donruss' best offering.

Set 3
1981 Fleer Baseball

This one I came up with on my own. A quirky set that seems to have a bit of a fan base. While there aren't loads of HOF rookies, there are some good rookies and the design is nice IMHO. Also, its over 30 years old which is cool too.

So, here is where you come in. Every free cent I seem to get goes back to collecting hockey cards so if I did have the $30+ dollars to buy any of these sets, something in my head would say "Hey that could have been a Parkie" so rather than spend cash, I am hoping to trade for one of these sets. I can trade another set for it, I can trade some autos, game used whatever the trader wants. SO here is my plan:

If you have an extra one of those listed sets, message me. First one to come to my rescue will get a chance to try and cook a deal with me. If it can't happen then I will try someone else. I totally understand YOUR shipping will be more than mine so I plan to heavily compensate you with more hits in return. This is something I really hope to do so if you have something I want, I will try and more than make it worth your while..

Thanks for your help in advance and I will keep you posted if I have any luck. Thanks for your time.


  1. Three great sets. I picked up the 89UD and 84D within the past two years. Actually I'm still a few cards short on the 84D.

    As for the 1981 Fleer... it's the first set my parents ever bought me. The original set is long gone, but I ended up busting a pair of boxes and hand built my own set. It cost me a lot more than had I just purchased one on eBay... but it was a ton of fun.

    Best of luck on your hunt for one of these sets. I don't have any extra sets laying around, but if you ever need some 81F singles, let me know.

    1. Thanks Fuji! I might wait a couple months and if I have no luck, I might sell a few cards and just buy it. I do want a set pretty badly so I suppose it will be worth the venture one way or another.
