To trade, or just talk, contact me at [email protected]   I am a member of the Internet trading group Vintage Card Traders (VCT). The VCT website is at http://vintagecardtraders.com

My trading policies are based on those of Dan Austin ( http://www.iamdanaustin.com/wantlist/ ), founder of Vintage Card Traders.

Most of my Trade Bait lists indicate the condition or grade of each card I have for trade. I value the cards in any trade using the high Beckett value and then applying the percentages indicated parenthetically below. For example, a card with a high Beckett of $100 that is graded GD is valued at $15.  

Cards considered to be "star" or "premium" cards (book value of $20 or more) will only be traded for similar star/premium cards; see "High-BV" page.

All cards on my Trade Bait list are available for sale at a negotiated price.
  • NM Beautiful, any flaw would have to be pretty minor. (100%)
  • EXMT Great looking card, can be a bit off-center, some minor corner problems, print spots, etc. (75%)
  • EX No creases! No miscuts! A nice collectible card with some flaws that are not serious. Minor corner creasing OK. (50%)
  • VGEX This is the highest I will grade a card with very minor surface creases (wrinkles) or 100/0 centering on the front. (40%)
  • VG A decent looking card that would be EX or better if not for one or more noticeable creases, or just a card with some scrapes, minor stains, that sort of thing. Centering problems are OK, even very slight miscuts. (30%)
  • GDVG  In between VG and GD.  (20%)
  • GD Still a collectible card, but will have creases, stains, corner rounding, other flaws. Insignificant pen marks are OK. A bit of miscutting is OK here. (15%)
  • FR A bit nasty looking and beat up, but still good as a filler, may have fading, noticeable scuffing, minor writing, tiny pieces missing, etc. May be noticeably miscut or have tons of creases, some of which may be serious. (6%)
  • PR Quite nasty, serious writing, pieces missing, horrendous stains, and other fatal flaws! (2%)
