One thing on the trade board I would like changed....
I got a trade offered for a SP Jeter Rookie... 150 $1.00 cards... It could be some kid that is trading his whole life's collection for it... but without sending a personal note and cancel the trade I feel like a grumpy tool....
The Options to decline a trade are silly.... "Rather Not Say" come on... we are all in this hobby together.. "Cannot locate the item" so give the guy an option to add something else.... "Not trading at this time".. well if you are in the hospital or at war..I understand... if you are not trading at this time..why do you have things marked for trade? Card no longer need... ok i can understand this one.. to some degree... but geez...
How about terms we all have used on everyone of these boards....
Sorry, could not find anything of equal value I need.
Sorry, this card is involved in another trade.
Sorry, this card was mistakenly marked for trade and I no longer have it
Sorry, the card is damaged and I did not realize.
Sorry, this card was mistakenly marked for trade and it is PC.

I think its great if you collect a particular player, but I (& I would bet most people) dont collect any particular player, so if you send me a trade offer I'm not going to bother checking out 7 pages or 1989 Score in your org looking for Mark McGwire cards...people want/like GU and autos. I rarely, if even ever, have gotten a trade offer from someone wanting all the base Nomar's I have...hell, right now I'm trying to ditch as many Jeter base/insert/parallel/ser# as I can at rates of 1.5-2 BV and its tough to even do that...And one final note to collectors...understand that not all HOFers are equal...Robin Yount and Eddie Murray are great players but not Aaron, Mays, Mantle in the collecting world...so their $8 gu jersey card isnt more special than other $8-10 GU jersey cards.

Not everyone wants that great $300 card that will just sit there. I pulled
A $500 auto and my wife said it's only worth that much if you sell it.
