  • CCW friends - my favorite way to trade

    Chris (Whitney777) , Woody (Schwood) and Jerry (jwgreen) have started something really cool on this site that I would like to keep up. I know this takes a little bit of trust and at sometime I probably will get burned, but I would like to continue to do what they have done.

    They sent me (and a few of you as I have seen posted) a bunch of cards of my favorite team/players and I just return the favor when I can. I have tried to Pay it forward and plan to continue to do it. I have plans to send out a package to Roy, Wes, and Gladdy in the next week or two. I am going to include some autographed cards, game used, vintage, and odd ball cards of their favorite teams. At some time in the future, they can return the favor (I like the Phillies and Nationals).

    This is the coolest way to trade because you get random surprises. I am almost 40 years old and I don't really need to trade exact book value for exact book value. I would rather get cards of teams or players that I like. As I come across some cool cards from Ebay, Listia, at a card show, etc , I plan to just pick some up and send them to people who I know collect them.

    If there are any other collectors out there (who have been on this site for a while - sorry I don't want to risk it with rookies), let me know.

      I agree with both of them. Chris started this all on another site and nobody would give him a shot. I stumbled across his thread and have never regretted it. He's helped my PC grow by leaps and bounds. I try to do the same for him. Brett is a great trader also and I'm glad to see him embrace "the whitney777" plan. Unless I'm trading the Crown Jewels of England, book value really means nothing to me. I'm just here to have fun. Getting random surprises from these 2 guys makes it a lot of fun for me.

      I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but I sent out over 50 boxes of freebies last week, with nothing expected in return. I like to help others out and this is the best way for me. Many times I don't receive any acknowledgement or a thanks but that's OK. I know a lot of people are busy or think there's some diabolical underhanded reason as to why I would give something away for free(its not really free it costs me $6 per flat rate box).

      So, I encourage everyone to try this. Even if you don't receive something in return or its 3 months from now, you can be proud that you helped a fellow collector.

      And for all the collectors out there, when you receive a surprise box from me, give Chris(whitney777) a big shout out and a Thanks!

        we also have several of us that have done this for several years and continue do this in the football section also and it isnt about the bv of cards but rather the fun of collecting your favorite teams.

            My friends, if this is not what trading is all about, then I want out of the hobby altogether. You guys make trading fun, as do other similar traders. I am not one that cares too much on BV, even when I am setting up larger trades. I look for things I don't have and just use the cards I do have and don't want as a mechanism for obtaining. I do say that, but if it is a huge trade for higher end stuff, I do want to get something in...well...the ballpark. But, I honestly have no trouble giving away a nice lot of base/inserts/GU to a good trader to make their day. Or putting together a lot of stuff people can use for a set. Or helping people out if they have a stellar player collection and I have a card in my PC they can use. I dont' really worry too much about it. It is supposed to be about having fun. You guys just keep on keeping on. I believe it all works its way back. And thanks for all the great trading so far. And I look forward to a ton more in the future!

                    This is awesome!! There are some greats up there on the Mt. Rushmore of giving. Fuser is the all time godfather to me. But there are so many others that carry on this mantra. Woody and Brad also come to mind. Jerry has been a beast as of late. U all have my kudos. Continue the great work of paying it forward!!!

                          I tell you all what, this is really cool. I love the thread, and I am going to come to it often when I get cards for you guys, and I am going to send em off and let you know something might be on the way to you when I find stuff. That good for you guys? Thanks to y'all it is always fun.

                          Chris, thanks for thinking of me on the B's card. I have a couple of Browns GU that I socked away for you. Nothing huge, but a couple of things that I will get out to you eventually.

                              This is great,
                              I try to do this whenever I can and seeing so many more here at CCW jumping in is just great.

                              I received a box and bubble mailer this week from Jerry and Chris and I mailed out a few earlier and have some packages ready to go out soon I hope.

                              I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.
