Non-Sports Collectors: Let's Trade!

I finally have an accurate tradelist for non-sports cards! I had what I thought was an accurate list, but after receiving several trade requests where I could not find the cards, I knew I had to totally overhaul it. That is now complete, and my non-sports tradelist is now totally accurate for the first time ever.

The list is not particularly large- 1,367 cards. That is due to two factors, being a) I mostly stayed away from non-sports between 1996 and 2010, and b) I only listed perfect cards. Any cards with damage- being either a weak corner, scratches, dents, or anything else that keeps them from being perfect- they did not go on the list. Honestly, some of the flaws I rejected cards for are so minor that most people would probably not even notice them, but I am not going to tell somebody I have a card, send it to them, and then have them be disappointed because the card is not all they were hoping for...when you get a trade from me, you won't have to look for an upgrade. (I actually rejected more NASCAR cards for flaws than I put on my tradelist, but luckily the number I rejected for non-sports is only about 2/3rds of what I accepted)

Here is the list of sets I have available on my tradelist:

To see the cards on the tradelist, simply click on any place the word tradelist appears in this post, or... CLICK ME

For trading with me...I will take anything. It doesn't have to be on my wantlist,  it doesn't have to be non-sports, basketball or NASCAR. I'll take literally anything. I don't care what. It doesn't even have to be cards. I basically won't turn down any trade. The one thing I will NOT do is sell. I'm quite proud of the fact that I am in my 28th year in the hobby and I've never sold a single card, not even a duplicate...and I have no intention of changing that.

Here is a look inside the reject box-
 As you can see, none of my older stuff got past the reject stage, unfortunately. (The airplane cards on the far left are 1952 Topps Wings, the other ones in the middle are 1959 Sicle). There are also some cards from the 1963 Topps Flags Midgees in the box, but not pictured. I'm not sure what I will end up doing with the rejects. If anybody wants them, let me know. Most of them hit the reject box because of bad corners.


  1. I would definitely be interested in the Topps Wings and Sicle cards, or really anything pre 70's.

    1. I have been trying to think of a thank-you package for the cards you sent me in December...now I guess I know what it will be! I will need your address again though.

  2. I think it's great that someone thought to make a trading card of a Chevy Astro Van.

    1. That's from Collect-A-Card's 1992 Chevy Set. A great set other than the fact that they didn't bother to cover the El Camino in it!

  3. I'll find you something for any of the following that's still available-

    1963 Flag Midgees from the reject box
    1995 Fleer DC vs Marvel
    1995 Skybox DC Power Chrome Legends '95 (also the Hard Hitter)
    1996 Fleer/Skybox Superman Action Packs Coloring Card
    1996 Skybox DC Outburst: Firepower (also the Maximum Firepower)
    2011 Upper Deck Captain America: The First Avenger- Comic Covers

    1. They are all still available...shoot me an email at elcaminobilly at yahoo.com (please mark it Cardboard History or Non-Sports cards or something, I get a lot of junk email) and we can get those traded.
