I've actually had a shift in the last few days and I'm not trying to collect the three guys (Dale Murphy, Will Clark and Mickey Tettleton) from the junk wax era that were on my wish list. Too many traders were wanting to trade me three cent cards from that era for more recent cards that both cost and have more value than those. The kicker is that they wanted one-for-one.
It's going to make trading tougher for me, but such is life, I suppose.
I traded away five baseball cards for seven Blackhawks cards from the 1994-95 Pinnacle Rink Collection parallel set. This is one of the parallels that I want to acquire the entire team set of. I never imagined I'd get seven of the seventeen in one trade. Lucky me!
The cards were 1:4 packs. For the baseball collectors reading, this is the hockey version of Pinnacle's Museum Collection. I know there's a lot of love out there for those cards.

Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $150 in a year (including $15 back on one Black Friday purchase last week). FREE CARDS! If you're on Twitter, please give me a follow.
