FREE* cards for everyone!

** UPDATED 10/05/10 **
I'm not calling this off just yet!  I found out the guy that offered the cards at the beginning of September was a few weeks away from getting married so I'm sure he has had a lot on his plate.  My brother was sent to NJ to work for 2 weeks so I'm not sure if he has been back into the bank.  My brother told me he would check up w/ the guy once he gets back to work here in Charlotte next week.  For all of you who have claimed a team or teams just please be a little more patient with me please.

** UPDATED 9/16/10 ** 
The guy I'm getting the cards from told my brother he has been swamped at work since last week, but he hopes to be able to drop off the cards w/ my brother this week.  I haven't heard from my brother today, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have the cards in hand by this weekend.  I'm really sorry for the delay, but I promise we'll get this rolling ASAP!

** UPDATE 9/10/10 **
I'm still waiting to get my hands on the actual box(es) of cards.  I was hoping the guy would bring them to the bank where my brother works today, but no dice.  Hopefully I'll have these by the first part of next week.  I'm sorry guys for the delay.  In hindsight I should have waiting before posting the initial post, but I was super excited about the possibilities of what may be inside the box(es).  Stay tuned for more information.

My brother sent me an e-mail this afternoon letting me know one of his customers has 3 large boxes of cards he is giving away.  I'm told the years range from the mid 90's to the early 2000's.  I have no idea what are in the boxes or what the condition of the cards are, but I told my brother to take them.

What I had in mind was to give away the cards (minus the Braves).  * Only thing I ask is that each person claiming a team(s) pay for shipping.  I'm not asking for any money up front since I don't know how many cards per team are in the boxes.  I'll sort the cards and them let each participate know what shipping will run.  Sound fair?  If so go ahead and leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail letting me know what team(s) you want.

  1. I'll take the Mets if they're still available. Thanks!

  2. Always up for a random lot adventure. I'd love the Cubs from this, if possible. Thanks!

  3. Put me down for the Rangers please! Thanks!

  4. Oh, boy, I can't resist giant boxes of cards. I'll be happy with Dodgers.

  5. If it's free, it's for me! St Louis Cardinals for this Redbirds fan, please. Thanks for doing this.

  6. I'll take the Yankees and shoot you an email with my address. Thanks!

  7. I'll take all the Orioles that you have to offer!

  8. I would love free Red Sox and even better free Red Sox from mid 90s to early 2000s cause that is the biggest hole in my collection.

  9. Twins, A's, Expos, and Brewers and then I can take whatever else, too, after the pickings!


  10. BTW, if someone else really wants the Twins, A's, Expos and Brewers, I'll pass those along and just take the rest. My wife will *kill* me, but I can be re-incarnated!

  11. I'd like the Brewers please. FYI I'll be out of town till 12th or 13th but let me know shipping and I'll paypal you or whatever.

  12. I'd take the Mariners. Just let me know how much shipping comes to.

  13. I'll take Detroit, just let me know what shipping will run and I'll Paypal it to you.

  14. I'll try the Padres and Phillies if that's cool.

  15. I need to build up my Rockies reserves, so I'll grab them too if that's OK. Thanks again!

  16. Thanks for the updates, Colbey. I was wondering about this one. I get excited about free cards too! Hey, if it's okay to claim two teams, would you mind putting me down for the Giants also, please? I don't want you to get stuck with any free cards! LOL If that's not ok, I'm good with that, as long as I get the Cardinals. Thanks again for everything.

  17. Sign me up for the Reds if no one else has claimed them yet. jasontcarter(at)gmail(dot)com
