We’ve got another trade completed for the inaugural Trading Block for “Trading Up!” The original card, Colt Morton’s 2009 gamer, has now earned us this sweet numbered letter patch of Chien-Ming Wang! I would like to thank tndcollectables from Sports Card Forum for this great trade keeping us on our way towards raising some funds for The Jack Jablonski fund! #jabs

Colt Morton
For A Good Cause
(…and to unload some junk…)

I’ve added yet another feature to the recently resurrected blog, and it’s called “Trading Up!” It’s found in the menu above. It’s an initiative I’m taking to not only find a good home for some of the cards that I don’t need but also to raise money for those who are IN need. It’s also a fun way to see what kind of goodies can be traded around while starting off the process with some relative junk. I mean, can you imagine starting with that Colt Morton pictured above and ending three months later with a 1956 Mantle? Obviously, there’s no chance in the world that a direct trade will make that happen, but watching the chain of trades as they unfold should be fairly entertaining.

WHAT’S THIS ABOUT RAISING MONEY?
Right. See, I’m not keeping the cards that are being traded around. In fact, at the end of each cycle (or “Trading Block” as I’m calling them), I will auction off the last card in my possession. The money earned from that auction will be donated to charity. That means that I won’t be keeping cards, AND I won’t be making money. All of you have the chance at trading for some awesome cards, and you get to take part in something meaningful!

So, what do ya say? Let’s get this thing rolling and let’s do some good!
