Trade Stack 44: Thoughts and Prayers on This Day of Tragedy

Here is how this works:
Every so often (i.e. whenever I feel like it), I will add a card to a "Trade Stack".  Whenever the stack becomes appealing enough to someone, that person needs to comment on the post saying they'd like to claim the stack AND tell me which card they are sending off of my want list.  That's all you have to do - trade me ONE card (or more, of course) card from my want list for the entire stack of cards that I'm offering.  Each time, it will be first come, first act quickly (unless of course you are a gambler and hope to wait it out until there are 10+ cards in the stack that you want in exchange for a single 2004 UD Vintage card that I am looking for)!

The Trade Stack:
Last update:  12/14/12

Before I show the newest card added to the stack, I'd like to take a moment to send my heartfelt prayers out to all the people affected by the latest tragedy.  While I have no desire to get into a gun debate, I think we can all agree that the mindless slaughtering of children in our schools has got to stop.  I'm sure we will learn more about the so-called motivations of the killer in the next few days, but what we ought to be focusing on is how to somehow make the holiday season bearable for all of those families affected.  It's truly a tragic event, and one that should remind all of us just how fragile life can be.  Remember to tell those you love that you love them.  Remember to hug those you care about.  And most of all, remember that there are things that are bigger than all of us - so enjoy (and cherish) every moment you have.  

Today's card addition to the stack was chosen in a bit of symbolism.  It's a Future Star card of Chris Snelling which is apropos for a few reasons today.  One, it hearkens to the future where all of our young people could become stars...and two, it's black-and-white proof that we really have no idea what will happen in the future.

Remember, to claim the stack, all you need to do is offer me any ONE card (though you can trade more than one card of course) from my want list.

Want the card(s) in the stack?  Act fast - tell me which card you will send me off my want list in the comments below!  You must leave a comment on the trade stack post in order to claim the card - no more claims via email!  If no one claims this card within a reasonable amount of time (a few hours up to a few days, depending) - I'll add another card to the stack and the process will start again!
