Welcome to the Trading Floor.
While I do not wish to trade on a large scale, there are certain deals that I am willing to make. If you are interested in trying to orchestrate a trade, read on.
1. NEVER send cards through the mail that are not solicited! I will not be responsible for them at any level.
2. If you have cards you want to trade, the ground rules are as follows:
Don't bother with commons, unless they are of Mets players (no matter what uniform they appear in) and are not listed as part of my collection already; you can find my collection of Mets cards listed at The New York Mets Hall of Records.
I will trade at roughly a 2:1 ratio; that is, for every two dollars of cards (at Beckett high prices) that you send me, I will allow you $1.00 in trade value at Rounding Third. The reason for the apparent advantage in my favor is this: The prices I charge on items at Rounding Third are almost always quite a bit less than the Beckett prices. If you find some items that are accidentally priced higher than Beckett, just send me a note and I'll fix the prices in question.
If that doesn't sound tempting enough, make me an offer. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained," they say, and if we can't agree on a deal, at least we'll still have what we started out with!
E-mail me to get approval of a trade before you send anything; after we have both agreed to the terms of the deal, then you may put your package in the mail.
3. Lastly, if you have any interesting Mets cards that I do not have which are harder than usual to obtain (oddballs, stadium issues, etc.), I may be enticed in some cases into actually buying them, or at least making you a better-than-usual offer. E-mail me with a description, and I will get back to you quickly.
Well, I think that's about it. If I seem to have forgotten anything, drop me a line and let me know.
