A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

Sunday PWE Trade Bait #16

Good Sunday evening guys.  Once again I have been basically absent for the week.  I am proud that I was able to post my Memorial Day tribute to the fallen Rockies because that particular post was something that I had been wanting to do even before I came back to blogging earlier this year.  It just felt like something that needed to be done.  

Unfortunately, life caught up with me.  On Wednesday, I had the puppies 2nd vet trip and it was in mid-morning, so it basically shot the whole day.  But it was not unexpected.  The real horror of the week happened the next day.  I was doing in my main bathroom folding towels when I noticed a couple of dead insects near the tub drain.  I thought it was gross, but not that big a deal so I just washed them down the drain.  The next morning I went and did my morning ablutions like always and nothing.  A couple hours later, my grandfather came and got me and said I needed to come to the bathroom immediately.   

There are a few words or phrases in the English language that exclusively epitomize terror.  A few that come to mind are murderer, turbulence, collapsed, etc.  Another word that needs to be added to that list is swarm.  There is nothing good about a swarm of anything.  I walked into my bathroom, where two hours earlier there was nothing, and I found a swarm of insects.  I closed the bathroom with me inside to keep them from getting out.  Since I had the dogs and people in the house, my options were limited.  So I just turned the shower sprayer on hot and went Wild West on their asses.  I sprayed scalding hot water in the bathroom everywhere for 5 minutes or so.  The infestation was so bad, I could not see the bottom of my tub.  

But after a few minutes and several insect bites on the back of my neck, these things mostly were dead.  Once the swarm was handled I packed the dogs and people in the car and set off a couple bug bombs which seemed to have done the trick.  What were the insects?  Termites.  So I have damage to repair.  I am capable of doing the labor myself, but it will take time.  Luckily for me, the insects were limited to two rooms on the opposite end of the house from my card collection.  So there's that.  

That being said, I am ready to forget this week and get some trading going on.

As always, I will trade for Rockies, Topps rookie cup cards, 86 Topps homages, the few remaining 2011 Topps Opening Day blues that I need for my master set, 2005 Topps Rookie Cup rainbows that I need, 2020 Donruss rainbows that I need, or the various insert sets I am currently putting together.  The links are working for 6 of those 7, and the other will be done shortly, but for now you can simply ask if I need it.

If you just simply don't have anything I need, don't worry about it.  We can still trade.  I will happily accept serial numbered cards from teams I am in short supply of at the moment.  All I ask is that you include an extra 1 or 2 just to take care of the stamp I will need to trade them later.  

 These are current teams I am comparatively low on trade stuff.

Houston, LA Angels, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee
