In any event, I have done a fair number of trades here and haven't noticed much sharp dealing myself. If anything, I would expect that your gf probably got some nice offers and, hopefully, you end up with a nice card in return. Happy early birthday to you!

+1!!

am I the only one that is bothered by this? LOL

if my wife went behind my back in our modest lil collection and traded one of my most rare cards I had ever pulled from a pack blindly without consulting me I'd be a bit... bothered by that.

(of course unless she hit a homerun of a good choice in what to trade it for!)

Jonny Venters - Super Collector
Overall Collection (113/157 72% Complete)
base/parallels (85/85 100%)
1/1's (28/72 39%)

always looking for venters 1/1's and 2008/2010 low numbered refractors

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

He wasn't kidding, he has been trying to dump his .25 cent-$10 football base/insert cards on me for higher end baseball autos.

If you have less than 20 feedback you're sending first.

I guess bothered wouldn't be the right word, I'd be pretty pissed off haha

If she didn't mind me trading some of her stuff for her birthday present, I would think it was really cool of her to trade my cards. But I would want her to know what she's trading. I'd give her the Bowman insert box for trading at first and work up to the rookies.

Collecting 2010 Bowman, '97 Bowman Chrome, 80s oddball, and '89 Griffeys.

I dunno - maybe his girl knows something about cards and knows the potential to get something equally cool but more specific to dude's PC.

RE: OT: Taking advantage of people (small rant)
Lol no everybody I'm not mad that she's trading my card. I've been wanting to trade it but I've been incredibly busy at work and money is tight so I guess she thought it would be a great idea for a present and I agree. I'm excited to see what she traded it for (she informed me today that she worked out a trade with somebody). She actually knows quite a bit about cards since I talk about them 24/7 lol, and she knows how to do research on certain cards/players and look up values if she isn't sure. She even does a little collecting of Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers as well lol.
