Maybe I can get you going in the right direction. I have an 8x10 Andy Pafko autograph with your name on it, if interested. A Brooklyn Dodger autograph may get you some more takers and something a little more valuable for the next trade...

Confirmed. I'll get that ready and out in the next couple of days. Good Luck with the project.

Although Pafko's autograph is not scarce by any means, he is 91 years old. You can play that up when you are dealing this Pafko away...

mj23bullsfan
04-03-2012, 12:02 PM
i've finalized trade number two, for an andy pafko auto'd 8x10 photo. we are both in the process of mailning our ends of the trade, so nothing is in hand yet.

could still start some talks tho. maybe trade the pafko for something in basketball? anyone interested?

Have an 8x10 Auto of Simeon Rice modeling his clothing line (T3K). Not sure if it would be less, equal, or greater value than the Pafko. LMK either way.

05-19-2012, 06:43 AM
my objective is to trade for something just a little better, so i can trade that for something a little better, and so on, until i can trade for a jordan rookie card. sounds like fun, huh! lol

if the hockey guys are of comparible or a bit better than pafko, then i my be interested. i'm not big into hockey so i wouldn't know jack from squat, lol. i mean i know some of the stars, like crosby, ovechkin etc... so i may need some honesty and help if we try and work a deal :)

scans would be good too, lol

It sounds morbid and it may take some time (you seem to be stalled out anyway), but it is a reality of life and when Pafko dies (he is 91 after all) you should be able to flip that for something much better and the interest will be there for sure.

Let's hope that you can flip that soon AND that Pafko continues to enjoy life though!

i know what you're saying curtis. everything seems to happen for that person when they're gone, like santo. finally got in the hall, after he passed.

cdahlk - i do like that reevis auto, and the weaver patch is cool. i know you tried with those hockey autos and we didn't get something done.

give me a few minutes to mull this over, lol

thanx,
paul

mj23bullsfan
06-09-2012, 11:15 PM

very nice Pafko 8x10 auto for trade. another auto of equal or slightly higher value would do the trick.

I assumed someone would want a Brooklyn Dodger autograph over some Griffey cachets, but if you think those will move better, I can trade them back to you? I'm surprises someone hasn't come forward with a decent offer. That is too bad. Are you running this on any other sites as well? You might need to, if not.

08-27-2012, 02:13 AM
So, what kind of value is the Pafko to you so I can equal, or slightly surpass it, in a deal?

I figure we have a previous deal anyway so shipping can be two birds with one stone:)

mj23bullsfan
08-27-2012, 08:28 AM
curtis - this is the only trading site i run with. i'm really not interested in joining any others. the BEST one is enough for me :)

i've had a few offers, but i don't think i was being unreasonable by not accepting. i just didn't think any of them were of at least the same level.

curtis - i'll take look at your www and get back with you.

matt - if nothing transpires with curtis (baberuth) i'll get in touch with ya. you can just hold off on mailing until we figure this one out if you like.

matt - i don't know really, maybe $20-$25??? does that sound right or what would you think?

probably curtis (mrmopar) would have the best idea for value. i'll pm him.


curtis (baberuth) - it is? lol. obviously different serial number tho, lol. ummmm, ya, i could trade the pujols for another numbered forte :)
i'll let you post it up, is toploader pwe ok with you, or do you prefer bubble envelope for this?

**Also, I just picked up a bunch of MJ cards. I have to check conditions and get them organized. I think most are going to have flaws but not sure yet. I assume you just want NM or better but if you're fine with flaws, lmk. Maybe we can get a trade done in the future.**

I'll trade you up a bit then, I have an 8 X 10 auto of Hank Aaron--more of a cardboard pic instead of a regular pic but still pretty cool. No COA but it's spot on sig. If you don't like that I can come up with something else:)
