Cards

Needs, wants, and holy grails

I collect baseball cards and, more specifically, team sets of the Boston Red Sox. Below is a list of the baseball card sets I’m currently collecting and what cards I’m missing from each set. Completed sets and missing numbers are marked as such. If you have one of the cards/sets I’m missing, drop me an email, I have lots of cards up for trade. If you’d like to contact me about a trade, and we haven’t traded before (and you don’t have my email address), feel free to use the contact form here.

Player Collections

Single Card / Player Collections:

Above and beyond yearly team sets, I’m also interested in just about any Red Sox related card, jersey relic, RC, autograph, letterman patch, manu-relic, parallel, refractor, colored border, serial numbered card, etc, for any Red Sox player, past, present or future, even if it’s not a set need.

Notable Red Sox Player Collections: Tim Wakefield, Luis Tiant, Clay Buchholz, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Brock Holt

Occasional Non-Red Sox Collections: Mike Trout, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Jed Lowrie, Ryan Zimmerman, Buster Posey, R.A Dickey
