Cash for Cards 1.10 (Topps Chrome Platinum Anniversary Hall of Famers Join the Stack!)

For many, many years I've run my Trade Stack here at the blog where basically I add a card to the pile every so often until someone finally claims the stack in exchange for sending me at least one card from my want list.  The Trade Stack served me well for nearly a decade - but with my want list finally down to mostly hard-to-find short prints and minis, people have stopped having trade matches even if they wanted the cards in question.  Thus, it's time to shake things up.

My idea for Cash for Cards is basically the same as with the Trade Stack except now I'll set a price for the pile of cards at the beginning.  Once someone decides to pay that price, they'll get all of the cards in the pile!  Price will include shipping to the US (I don't mind shipping to Canada but Canadian buyers will have to pay for the shipping costs, sorry but that's the best I can do with postage rates being what they are)!  I plan to use the funds raised from Cash for Cards to buy some of those hard-to-find cards off of my want list...we can all win here!

Will some Hall-of-Famers and a (most likely) future Hall-of-Famer be enough to convince someone to grab this entire stack of cards?  At this point, the cost is a steal given the number of cards included - not to mention the variety of base, inserts, and parallels you'll end up getting!

Before I get to the stack of cards, a quick reminder that voting is still open for this year's End-of-Year Awards.  Go here to check that out and please cast your ballot!  I'll be closing the poll shortly!
