Default my Texas Size Quest for Big Tex (Nolan Ryan) RC

First, Mods please move if I cannot do this here. Thanks.

So after working on a deal with someone who was on a trade quest themselves, I was inspired to start my own Texas Size Quest for a 1968 Nolan Ryan RC BVG 5 (+/- depending on how everything goes)
I love collecting as a kid growing up in the 80s/90s (when they ran the printing presses for baseball cards) and remember seeing the Nolan Ryan RC in the card shop and thinking how awesome it was, but that was way outside my league at the time.

Reading through others threads makes it exciting to think about just trading along the way – this is the aspect I really enjoyed as a kid – there were trade nights at the LCS and it was fun taking boxes of cards and wheeling and dealing with other collectors for what you wanted. So this is just the new version of trading – online! So thanks for being willing to read and be a part of the online card shop to do some wheeling and dealing as I seek to find that card I remember as a kid (actually there are a few I would love to have, but the Nolan seems like a good start…and being from Texas I would love to own the RC of Big Tex!)

My goal is to make enough trades, and/or to cash/PP to buy/trade for the Nolan.

Borrowing some rules from lauriontj thread my quest flip 1989 ken griffey jr upper deck psa 10 rookie


1. I will add $6.00 additional to help start with shipping costs. Will use PWE, bubble as dictated with trades

2. Trading and selling is allowed. If I can trade up, I will. If I can sell the cards, I will. All money and cards will be tracked and recorded in this thread.

3. I will use multiple trading forums, eBay, and local card shows to attempt this. Sorry Blowout! You guys are still my number one forum to trade on! I hope to do most transactions on Blowout personally but will use the monster of Ebay as necessary

4. Multiple transactions can happen at the same time.

5. No buying/Selling/trading can be done in this thread. If you interested in a card please PM me. I do not want this thread bombarded with offers. I want to make this a nice read for the other members. I will also post in the B/S/T section once things get rolling.

I’m hoping to complete this quest by the end of baseball season (just to at least give myself a timeline) and what better time to start than Spring Training!

So without further adieu…I am going to start my quest with the following 5 cards of various value:

1959 Fleer Ted Williams #30 PSA 8
2012 Topps Tribute John Smoltz Autograph #71/99
2012 Topps Chrome Steven Strasburg XFractor
2012 Topps Chrome Blue Refractor Auto of Yonder Alonso #195/199
2010 Bowman Chrome Green XFractor RC of Jose Altuve

One Vintage, 2 Auto’s, 2 Refractors – Who is up for making deal #1 for any of these and get the ball rolling on my Texas Size Quest!

Thanks Y’all
Chris

I'm interested in the Altuve and have these 3 baseball available. The bottom-left on both of the TTT have a lil white showing like most TTT seem to have. Campanella is #/525 and Verlander is #/1350.

A nice Tuesday morning update - so I stopped at Wal Mart on my way to work (to buy chocolate from easter because yes I need some for cheap!) and happened upon a hanger box of 2011 Topps update...I've been on a cold streak on those lately but decided to try my luck, after all its $6.48 to go fishing for a trout

Hook line and sinker! Pulled a 2011 Topps Update Mike Trout RC! And it looks nice! Based on others I have pulled and sent in for grading, it should get a 9.5 BGS (which the last two I sold for $50 and $60). I'm putting this with the lot, but if I still have it and end up with enough paypal, I just might drop this off to Beckett at some point this season.

Not going to list all 72 cards, but also pulled a Cognac Hank Aaron SP, a Gold #/2011 Eric Hosmer, and base RC's of Hosmer, Julio Teheran, and JD Martinez...not a bad box at all! If interested in any of the 2011 Topps Update, shoot me a PM, I have tons of base and inserts from numerous boxes and can throw some in if you need

Closing a deal that will occur later this week but cant post all the details yet, however i am posting what cards of mine it involves

Deal #5
2011 Topps Tribute Smoltz relic auto /99
2011 Topps Update Mike Trout
for
???
-$2 shipping

Also have something working for the 59 Fleer Ted Williams PSA 8

Clemente and Darvish in hand and others should be soon.

Who thought trading would be this much fun! What a great way to see some cards I might never purchase, but when working out a deal with a fellow collector they cross my collection, sometimes very breifly!

Stay tuned for the updates - hopefully going to be a big week with a couple trades...and I would love to add some more trades for whatever you might be interested in!

So after some negotiations, I finally closed deal #5, which I'm pretty excited about, but it reqired some additional measures
Traded
2011 Topps Tribute Smoltz relic auto /99
2011 Topps Update Mike Trout
+grading fees at BGS for Trout
2013 Topps Bryce Harper Base card (extra I had around)
for
1958 Topps Mickey Mantle All Star
1971 Topps Johnny Bench
1975 Topps Carl Yaz
2001 Upper Deck Albert Pujols RC
2011 Topps Bryce Harper Red Refractor from Value Box

I'm pretty stoked about this-getting my hands on a Mantle! Its not super condition, but it is still sweet! Had to add additional funds to get the Trout graded, but all in all a fair trade to add to the quest. Should be getting these in next week to get pics posted. Everything else has come in so far.

Hoping to strike Deal #6 involving the Ted Williams for a couple RC's of a Hall of Famer so stay tuned!

And if you like anything I've got - let me know and lets trade!
