I have way too many cards in my house...let's trade.

Here is a pic of how many cards I have.  Twenty five 3200 count boxes.  Over 60,000 cards and this does not include my personal collection.  This is everything I am trading away.  Now they are mostly commons and lower level inserts.  If you looking for a player, I probably have atleast a few of him.  This is what happens when you have been collecting for 25 years and don't trade away anything.  I used to buy set after set.  I didn't care what set it was, I just wanted them all.  I would go to card shows and buy all the commons no one wanted for dirt cheap.  Mostly from dealers who were just looking to pull the big insert and unloading the rest of the box.

Baseball Card Mailday Bowman Chrome Wrapper Redemption

I bought a box of 2010 Bowman Chrome so I sent them in to get them redeemed for the wrapper redemption. Not all that great but I didn't expect much. Don't really know who any of these players are. If you want to make a trade for some of them just let me know.
