Moving the Heritage & Flagship inserts/parallels

As you may know, I'm not a big insert collector.  Parallels in certain circumstances, yes, but not inserts. 

I've tried to keep them moving as quickly as I can, just to keep a little room around for other cards.

So, without further adieu, let's get the party started, and see how many of these beauties we can move out in the next couple of weeks.

Let's start with flagship:

The calling card inserts look really nice,but I'm sure that there are fans of these three who would enjoy these cards much more than I. 

The chasing history inserts is an interesting idea, but there's no place for them in my collection.  Help me find them a good home.

A couple of chasing the dream inserts.  I'm sure that there are some team collectors that would be interested.

The Emerald Green parallels are of a couple of stiffs who will never amount to a hill of beans.  The '72 mini looks a little fishy to me.  Cardinals fans might enjoy the camo and cut to the chase cards.  I'm not sure if there are any Yankees fans left out there, but if there are one of them might like the Pettitte.

On to Heritage.  Let's start with the Blue Parallels, which in my opinion look kind of snappy.

Again, nothing but stiffs here.

How about a black backed base card....close your eyes because this one features two guys who just won't do anything for your fantasy team.

Neither of these guys are from Venezuela, but the card is...supposedly

I kind of like the New Age Performers insert, probably one of the few times over the years of Heritage that I have enjoyed the design.  I already have the R.A. Dickey NAP card for my Jays collection (thank you Pat)

The News Flashbacks are an insert set that I wouldn't miss if they ever stopped producing them.

Here are some more various inserts from Heritage for your consideration:

Those Trout and Jeter guys just keep popping up, don't they??

Finally, a couple of chrome goodies.

I've had good luck with the refractors, I've hit 3 so far, 2 of which were numbers I needed for the serial insanity set. 

So there you have, trade bait from the first quarter of 2013.  Let me know what you would like to trade for in the comments, and if you're just wanting to do a 1 for 1 or 2 for 2 trade, if you prefer the plain white envelope method of shipping.

Looking forward to hearing from you, Robert


  1. please save the Then & Now Brooks Robinson Cabby for me!

  2. I would love to score that Buster Blue card and the Then and Now with Marichal. Let me see what I can track down for you.

    1. No problem Adam, just let me know when and where to send them to.

  3. I'll give the Berkman Cut to the Chase, Westbrook Camo and Holliday Blue a good home here in my Cardinals collection! In return I've got a few of your hockey wants I'll send your way!

  4. Would you mind setting those Heritage "News Flashbacks" inserts aside for me, Robert? I usually try to complete that insert set each year.


    1. No problem Nick, consider it done.
