    BM? never heard of BM, except in medical terms, and I am sure that is not what it means!
    Please excuse delays in shipping. I do mail at least 1-2 times per week. So please be patient; you will get your cards!

    Trading ONLY for Pirates autos I need, any/all Forrest Griffin cards, 2010 Topps and 2010 Topps Heritage (for son's 1st sets!), Nicer Steelers cards (GU/AU/Ref/etc.), all Troy Polamalu, and Dean Palmer I need

    No kidding, the first time someone offers to send me a card in a BM I'll pass.

    Hoping that one doesn't catch on.

    Don't forget CMB (Check my bucket)!!!! Thanks, Trish!
    Phillies cards wanted - Chris Widger cards wanted (local hero)!

    I will trade your team or set fillers. I prefer to trade; I will buy as a last resort (hey, they're "trading" cards !!!) Thanks!

    PWEs are fine with me; for the most part, I back with cardboard and mark them as non-machinable. PLMK if this is a problem!!

    Yep, it was your post I saw.
    Got a link for that ? I looked thru the faq's and couldn't find it.

    If found to be a good idea by the mods to make this a sticky on a board, or boards, I'd be more than happy to post and monitor the threads and add to the first post any new lingo posted by the members
