Pfew, finally I sorted out all my duplicates.
I wonder if the organizing ever stops (not that I mind, it’s one of the things I love about the hobby : constantly finding ways to arrange and rearrange all those cards in neat little piles. Yet, my fridge is a complete mess and there’re clothes all over my bedroom floor. Go figure). One thing’s for sure : it was a necessity if I wanted to be able to get some cards out to fellow bloggers. Nothing fancy, just base cards, but your want lists are specific enough that I should be able to find something for a few of you out there., whose needs I have identified.
I’m also starting to document every Blue Jays card I own, just in case some of you don’t mind sending out cards overseas and you feel like sparing your Toronto cards.
I wonder what my next step will be.
I definitely do not have the energy to enter all my cards into Zistle (or Beckett organize, but Beckett doesn’t allow you to export your collection, so blah), nor do I find it even remotely possible to try and find out what exists in terms of Blue Jays cards. How do team collectors do it ? Do you look in an Almanac of sorts ? Do you just look at every checklist possible ? Do you patiently write down the results in comc or Beckett with the team’s filter on ?
I suppose I’ll have to have a trade bait section. And find out what constitutes trade bait, exactly (GU/AU/SER ?).
So, yeah, if you have any organizing techniques as far as trades go, I’m all ears !
