Overall Want List

Normally I will take anything in a trade or a pickup, but things listed here are cards I am in need of the most that are not Psych or Ghostbuster needs.

Normally, I am not much of a set collector anymore. There isn't much out there I want to seek in today's collecting world when it comes to sets. This is why I created Sets Of My Childhood where all of my favorites are and I will be chasing them down. You can find my needs for those here, https://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/p/sets-of-my-childhood.html

As for other cards, I focus a lot on top players for rookie cards. I must have at least one rookie of every player and I also want autographs from top players along with others I watched growing up. These needs are broken down here,

As I have said before, I love late 90's,95-99, inserts and creative base such as ones printed with holograms or on acetate. I would take any and all from any sport of those. I would also take any inserts from those years as well. Yes, ANY!!! But here are some specific ones I am looking for as well,

1996 Skybox Brett Favre MVP #1
1996 Skybox Brett Favre MVP #2
1996 Skybox Brett Favre MVP #3
1996 Skybox Brett Favre MVP #4
1996 Skybox Brett Favre MVP #5 Leather
1996 Action Packed Studs Of (NO PROMOS. THESE ARE /1500):
  • 1997 Ex2000 Essential Credentials NY Giants (any player)
  • 1997 Pinnacle Xpress Metal Works. Any player esp Ken Griffey Jr!!
  • 1997 Score Board 23K Gold Gems of the NFL(Have Terrell Davis)
  • 1997 Totally Certified Gold Robert Smith (need to finish the rainbow)
  • 1997 Upper Deck Game Jersey Ken Griffey Jr.
  • 1997 Upper Deck Game Jersey Tony Gwynn
  • 1998 Flair Football Film Cell (any and all!!)
I also have a side PC where I collect oddball cards. The ones that don't just have a plain jersey swatch. I want unique pieces they don't put in every product. Shoes, Laces, Floor, Gloves, anything that's not normal. A couple of those things I really, really want are a Wrestling or Benchwarmers "Kiss card"abd a Handprint card from any sport.

I have also recently been building a pretty sweet non sport PC and would welcome any autograph or relic cards from them from any TV or Movie. The bigger named stars are ones I seek most but I would take any honestly.

One HUGE AUTOGRAPH I really want from a celebrity comes from a few Leaf brands. I don't care which one it is, but I want one of those Chevy Chase autographs from Leaf.

And finally NY Giants. They are the only team I collect everything of big time. However, with my amounts of them going up and up, I am trying to cut down to just trading for numbered cards, relics and autographs.

To finish this up, I am also chasing some toys I would love to own that I once did.  These focus mainly on toys from the 90's and late 80's. Here are some I collect,
  • The Real Ghostbusters
  • TMNT
  • Mighty Max
  • Darkwing Duck
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers(mainly the flip head Rangers and any villains)
  • Toxic Crusaders
Here are the specific toys I would love to own again!
  • 1993 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Lord Zedd with Z staff
  • 1991 Darkwing Duck action figure
  • Any Mighty Max playset
  • 1993 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Flip Heads Green Ranger Tommy
  • 1993 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Flip Heads White Ranger Tommy
  • 1990 Toxic Crusader Headbanger
  • 1990 Toxic Crusader Toxic Avenger
  • 1991 Darkwing Duck Action Figure Megavolt
  • 1991 Darkwing Duck Action Figure Bushroot
  • 1991 Darkwing Duck Action Figure Steelbeak
That pretty much concludes things I really am looking for. I will contiually update this when I get stuff or think of others I would want.


I must note that I will ONLY trade with those I know I can trust. Mostly those I have traded with before but if a newbie comes along and gets a strong backing from someone I know, I will trade with them as long as they are in the U.S.. I hate making this rule but with ever rising costs of shipping just in the U.S., it would be even more insane and out of my reach to ship outside of the U.S. Not to mention the pain of the paperwork and the other hassles. I am sorry about this and I hope you can understand.
