<b><u>The way it works is this:</b></u>

<b>1.</b> You post on the thread the player/team/brand/set you collect. You must be a collector of anything of that player/team/brand/set for this to really work. **Please no requests for specific #'d cards. It'll be too time consuming.** That is all you do here. I will try to keep an updated list (once a week) in the thread so we don't have to read too much to find a person for the gift.

<b>2.</b> You must PM me your address to be on the mailing list and also must post your requests (not address) in this thread as well.

<b>3.</b> Those <b>names listed in bold</b> will be names of folks who have verified sent cards. If you haven't sent something within a 90 day window your name will be returned to normal status until verification of another gift has been made.

<b>4.</b> Check the list and find someone you think would enjoy something you have. After you have made your selection, PM me and I will PM you an address for the card to be sent to (if you want to send to me, PM me for that address as well). Then you simply mail the card PWE to the person as a gift.

Everyone has cards laying around they don't want or need and if they are low-end, often times we don't want to trade them because it isn't worth mailing in a bubble mailer, etc.

Everyone should be getting random mail and a surprise at the same time, which is always fun. It also means many folks getting base/inserts etc. for their PC and people being generous to each other or their children.

I think this will be fun for everyone. This will be great if you have children who collect as well. If you're sending to a child please feel free to address it to the child. Kids love getting mail too! <i>Parents, include the age of your child as well, so that the sender can write them an age appropriate note to go with the cards (ie. when I was your age my favorite player was . . . etc.)</i>

Please do not post unless you intend to return the favor to the Beckett community as well. There is no limit to what you can send and you're all welcome to mail however you choose but only PWE is required.

The cost for this is basically one stamp for every person you choose to send a gift to.

I also ask you post some of the gifts you receive here to encourage others to play along. TTM autos or in person autos work great as well for gifts if you have an extra laying around. This should be fun for all, so post and enjoy. You're even welcome to post a picture of a card you wanna give away and someone can respond as a taker if they want it.

Everything here must be <b>FREE</b> though and for this thread let's stick to baseball only please.

<u>OP's NOTE TO TRADERS:</u> Please do not ask to be on this list if you have no intention of sending any cards. This is not just a list for guys to get free stuff. The intent is to send free stuff as well. If you go more than 6 months <b>(or 3 months after signing up)</b> without sending something I will send you a message to which you should reply within 2 weeks or you will be removed for non-activity. You will then have to resend your wants and address info.

<u>Additional OP note:</u> Please put your user ID on all gifts so that others can properly thank the sender. If you want to be anonymous then that is fine as well.
